Washington Political Editor, Breitbart

Matthew Boyle, 29, has been the Washington Political Editor for Breitbart News since October 2015, overseeing all U.S. political coverage for the news service. He joined Breitbart News as a political reporter in December 2012, after spending two and a half years as an investigative reporter for The Daily Caller. A graduate of Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, with a bachelor's degree in communications with an emphasis in journalism, Boyle grew up in Canton, Massachusetts. He lived in Idaho and Minnesota during his college years before finishing his degree in Florida, and moving to Washington, D.C. in mid-2010. As a national political journalist, he has been ahead of the curve on many major stories including the election of Donald Trump to the presidency in 2016, the defeat of Eric Cantor in 2014, the resignation of former Speaker John Boehner in 2015, the failure of the 2013 U.S. Senate "Gang of Eight" amnesty bill, and many more national issues. His reporting has led to the indictment of U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, the conviction of State Department contractors involved in illegally steering millions of dollars in government contracts, and the resignations of many government, campaign and other officials for corruption. He has interviewed President Trump in the Oval Office, and conducted many more high profile interviews including with then-candidate Trump, then Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence, many other presidential candidates, many U.S. Senators, governors and congressmen, as well as key movement and cultural leaders. His narrative driving reporting on major political issues of the day is regularly featured on many major national news programs and outlets, including the Drudge Report, Rush Limbaugh Show, Hannity, Mark Levin Show, and more. President Trump has called him a "great reporter".
