In conversation with Andrea Mitchell, anchor of Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC and NBC News Chief Foreign Correspondent

Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker are the authors of the #1 bestselling book A Very Stable Genius, a “taut and terrifying” account of Donald Trump’s “shambolic tenure in office to date” (The New York Times). In I Alone Can Fix It, they use in-the-room sources to offer a detailed account of Trump and his enablers’ disastrous handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, the public protests following Minneapolis Police Department Officers Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, J. Kueng, and Tou Thao’s killing of George Floyd, and the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol Building.

A national investigative reporter at The Washington Post, Leonnig won Pulitzer Prizes in 2014 for revealing the U.S. government’s secret domestic surveillance efforts and in 2015 for her coverage of the Secret Service’s misconduct and security failures. Her reporting about the Secret Service was the basis of her New York Times bestselling book Zero Fail: The Rise and Fall of the Secret Service. Leonnig offers on-air political analysis for NBC News and MSNBC.

The senior Washington correspondent at the Post, Rucker was part of a team of Post reporters, which also included Leonnig, who won the Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for its coverage of Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. The recipient of the George Polk Award and the Aldo Beckman Award from the White House Correspondents’ Association, Rucker also works as an on-air political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC.
