From the Trump trials to Biden’s re-election campaign to our coverage of the administration’s responses to Israel and Ukraine, the Washington bureau is facing a tsunami of news in the coming year. So we’re excited to announce that Eileen Sullivan, who has done a terrific job covering D.H.S., immigration and before that many thousands of Donald Trump’s tweets, will become our lead breaking news reporter, one of the most vital and demanding jobs in the bureau.
Eileen, who won a 2012 Pulitzer for investigative reporting with Matt Apuzzo, Adam Goldman and Chris Hawley for exposing the N.Y.P.D.’s surveillance of Muslims after 9/11, and who spent a decade at The Associated Press covering intelligence, terrorism and criminal justice, will range across a variety of topics and issues. She will work with Glenn Thrush to broaden our coverage of the Justice Department, including drug policy and the fentanyl crisis. She will help bolster our team covering the Trump trials and hearings. She will take on stories on the V.A. and USAID, and pitch in on Biden campaign trips. She will continue to do enterprise, particularly on national security.
Before The A.P., Eileen worked for Congressional Quarterly, where she covered the birth of the Department of Homeland Security and helped reveal its failings after Hurricane Katrina. She got her start at the Courier-Post in Cherry Hill, N.J., where her hard-hitting stories included one about a Labrador retriever who ate golf balls.
We’re thrilled she has agreed to take on this new assignment. Please congratulate her!
