Peter Schweizer is an American author and political consultant. He is the senior editor-at-large of Breitbart News.

When Schweizer was in high school he attended the National Conservative Students Conference at George Washington University. He was also a member of Young America’s Foundation. After graduating high school, Schweizer went on to attend George Washington University and St. Cross College of Oxford University.

Peter co-founded the Government Accountability Institute with Steve Bannon. The think-tank has the stated goal to investigate and expose government corruption, misuse of taxpayer money and crony capitalism. It is a nonpartisan organization, but their investigations mostly focus on the Democratic Party. In 2009, Schweizer and fellow White House speechwriter Marc Thiessen opened Oval Office Writers LLC. The group specializes in helping to prepare for congressional testimonies as well as pitching opinion editorials and book proposals.

Schweizer has done investigations throughout his career. One of his earliest works was working with Senator Jeremiah Denton’s son to write an article about the suspicious deaths of several European officials who supported the Strategic Defense Initiative. He would later report on insider trading and his work became the basis for Steve Kroft’s 2011 book Throw Them All Out. He would later do a report on the Obama administration where he criticized the President for not meeting often enough with Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius during the rollout of the Affordable Care Act.

The author wrote two novels with Caspar Weinberger in addition to his non-fiction work, The Next War and Chain of Command. He has also worked on films in his career. In the Face of Evil: Reagan’s War in Words and Deed is based on his book Reagan’s War and he is credited as an Executive Producer on the film. He was also a writer and producer on the 2018 documentary, The Creepy Line. The documentary is about the claims that Silicon Valley is censoring American conservatives on web platforms.

The author lives in Tallahassee, Florida with his wife and step-children.

Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win is Schweizer’s look into American elites who are getting money from China. His investigation shows everyone including Presidential families, Silicon Valley gurus, Wall Street high rollers, Ivy League universities, and professional athletes are getting enriched with help from Chinese interests. The book sees the author and his team of researchers going over global corporate records and legal filings to expose the hidden transactions.

Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite is a book where Schweizer and his investigators looks into the politicians who strive to acquire more government power to achieve their political ends and tries to figure out if they can be trusted with more power. The book is a deep dive into the private finances, and secrets deals of some of America’s top political leaders. The book features never-before-reported revelations about corruption and abuse of power that the author backs up with corporate documents and legal filings.

Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends is a look into a new form of corruption with larger sums of money than ever before. The children of powerful political figures often profit handsomely from their parents ties. It has nothing to do with their merit or skill, but simply because there are people looking to curry favor with them.

The book that put Schweizer on the map was Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. The book traces how the Clinton family was millions of dollars in debt in the year 2000, but they then went on to earn over $130 million in the ensuing years. Peter Schweizer looks into the way that they accumulated this wealth. The book gets into the Clinton’s dealings in Kazakhstan, Colombia, Haiti, and other places on the fringe of the global economy.

Reagan’s War: The Epic Story of His Forty-Year Struggle and Final Triumph Over Communism is Schweizer’s book that later served as the basis for a documentary. The book maps Reagan’s personal and political journey as an anti-communist. It began when he was an actor and carried on into his time in the White House. Schweizer says there is a misconception that Reagan was an empty suit who played a passive role in the demise of the Soviet Union, but he argues against it.

Schweizer is also the author of Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets. Many people think that Washington is broken because of bribes from special interest groups. However, Schweizer argues in this book that the reverse is actually true. He says that politicians now have developed a new set of tactics that are designed to extort industries and donors into making big donations that are then funneled to friends and family.

Throw Them All Out: How Politicians and Their Friends Get Rich Off Insider Stock Tips, Land Deals, and Cronyism That Would Send the Rest of Us to Prison is the book that Washington doesn’t want you to read. Peter Schweizer gets into the insider trading that is rampant in politics. Politicians often enter politics with only meager assets, but then begin playing the stock market where they regularly beat even the best hedge funds. How is this possible? Schweizer seeks to expose how members of Congress make themselves rich by doing things like inserting earmarks into bills to improve their own real-estate holdings and giving federal grants to campaign contributors.

Architects of Ruin: How Big Government Liberals Wrecked the Global Economy–and How They Will Do It Again If No One Stops Them is Peter’s argument that the economic crisis was caused by liberals who used the power of government to create a subprime mortgage bubble. Many have said that the collapse was due to conservative deregulatory zeal, but here the author presents his argument against that.
