Courthouse News
New York, NY
Whether in a U.S. courtroom or a rainforest in the Amazon, I report stories that make a global impact. After the FBI seized files from President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, my blow-by-blow coverage of the subsequent court proceedings repeatedly trended on Twitter. My reporting on a New York case involving a multibillion dollar money laundering scheme helped Turkish citizens thwart censorship by the country's largely state-controlled media. I have interviewed multiple heads of state, covered the pre-trial hearings of the accused 9/11 plotters at Guantanamo Bay, profiled residents of Havana about U.S.-Cuban relations in the wake of Donald Trump's election, and uncovered several secrets related to the court-martial of WikiLeaks source Chelsea Manning. Here to talk about Facebook and to write about whatever catches my interest at the conference.
