Kimberley Strassel has sat on The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) Editorial Board since 2005 and has written the WSJ’s Potomac Watch column since 2007. In her column, she opines on national politics with a conservative take.

2020 saw Strassel continue to champion the Trump administration. In recent months, President Donald Trump and his close associates have repeatedly cited her work. Last year, Trump tweeted, “Kimberley Strassel should get the Pulitzer. She is a treasure.”


On Oct. 22, Strassel alleged that Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, took part in shady business dealings — a conservative talking point ahead of the 2020 election. The Wall Street Journal’s newsroom countered her claims.

At Princeton, Strassel received an A.B. degree in the School of Public and International Affairs.
