Peter Baker, the chief White House correspondent for The New York Times, has covered four presidents for The Times and Washington Post: Donald Trump, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and William Clinton.
Baker co-wrote the first Washington Post’s story about the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal. He was the Post’s lead writer on the impeachment and trial of Clinton. He and his journalist wife, Susan Glasser, spent four years as Moscow bureau chiefs for the Post. In 2018 he wrote “Impeachment: An American History” with three co-authors.
His other books are “Days of Fire: Bush and Cheney in the White House,” “The Breach: Inside the Impeachment and Trial of William Jefferson Clinton,” and “Kremlin Rising: Vladimir Putin’s Russia and the End of the Revolution,” with Glasser, now a columnist at The New Yorker and editor at Politico. Baker and Glasser are working on a book about former Secretary of State James A Baker III.
