Drew Grant Ari Melber
Ari is MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent, covering the DOJ, FBI, and the Supreme Court, and an NBC News Legal Analyst. He won an Emmy Award for his Supreme Court coverage.
He was among the first journalists to report that the firing of FBI Director James Comey could trigger an investigation into obstruction of justice. On 9 May 2017, Melber reported, the day James was fired, that a former FBI official told him the firing had raised the question of potential obstruction by President Trump.
He interviewed former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in Feb. 2019 about whether Trump asked him to interfere in the Mueller probe. Melber later reported that Lewandowski’s response was false. In September 2019 during a congressional impeachment hearing, Lewandowski was questioned about his false answer.
He broke a story live on MSNBC that Democrats on the Ways and Means Committee “intend to request President Trump’s tax returns.” This was on the night of the 2018 midterm elections. United States House Committee on Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal carried out that plan, formally requesting Trump’s tax returns from the IRS in April 2019.
He previously served as the host of The Point which is a Sunday evening program on MSNBC focused on legal and political topics, as a cohost of MSNBC’s talk shows The Cycle, and also as a substitute host for other MSNBC shows, such as The Rachel Maddow Show, All In with Chris Hayes, and The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.
He was also a correspondent for The Nation. His writing focused on law, politics, organizing, civil rights, and technology issues. Melber’s writings have also appeared in The Atlantic, Reuters, and Politico. He wrote a report about Organizing for America and has contributed to several books.
