We are investigative journalists covering politics for The Intercept. Ask us anything!
We’re Zaid Jilani, Lee Fang and Dan Froomkin. We cover politics for The Intercept, a digital news organization dedicated to producing fearless, adversarial journalism. We believe in bringing transparency and accountability to powerful governmental institutions.
Earlier this year, Lee Fang was the first reporter to ask Hillary Clinton to release the Goldman Sachs transcripts. Recently you may have seen our exclusive reporting on the DNC leaks and Hillary Clinton's candid remarks to a group of donors. On Tuesday night, we went beyond fact-checking to add some much-needed context to the VP debate.
We’re here to talk about this unpredictable election cycle and our coverage of powerful institutions. Ask us anything.
