The following content is sponsored by the Government Accountability Institute.
America’s number one political writer, whom Tucker Carlson crowned the nation’s “most talented information seeker”, is now making investigative waves with a podcast titled “Exploring with Peter Schweizer.”
“Which makes Deep exploration unique is that we expose political corruption and secrets across the political spectrum on a weekly basis, often breaking investigative news and naming names long before the establishment media,” said Six Times New York Times Peter Schweizer, best-selling author and president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI). “We also expose the facts and cronyism our investigative team unearths, revelations that expose Democrats as well as Republicans.”
Deep exploration, which Schweizer co-hosts with GAI’s Eric Eggers, is quickly becoming a staple for insiders and journalists. “I listen to it all the time,” Megyn Kelly said. Former Congressman Jason Chaffetz said listening to the podcast allows listeners to “walk away with a deeper knowledge of the scams that are part of Washington.”
Indeed, since 2012, Schweizer’s GAI has been tasked with busting some of the biggest political bombshells of the past decade. In 2015, Schweizer’s bestselling book Clinton Treasury sparked an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation and blew the lid off the Uranium One scandal. In 2018 and 2020, Schweizer and GAI achieved first place New York Times bestsellers with the release of the bombshell books secret empires And Profiles in corruption– both of which exposed the Biden family’s vast and lucrative foreign corruption in China and Ukraine years before anyone had even heard of Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell.
Then, in 2022, Schweizer released another #1 New York Times bestseller with Red-handed: How America’s elites get rich helping China win. According The Editor’s Weekly, In the act earned Schweizer the moniker No. 1 Political Writer of the Year. The explosive revelations in the book included how the Biden family had pocketed some $31 million from individuals with direct ties to the highest levels of Chinese intelligence – even though Joe Biden personally benefited while softening his stance on China. Sean Hannity called the revelations in the book “massive”. And Mark Levin said Schweizer deserved to be nominated for the Medal of Freedom for the quality of his nonpartisan investigative journalism.
Between the publication of investigations into GAI’s branded explosive books, however, Schweizer and Eggers use The Drill Down Podcast as a way to give Americans weekly updates on GAI’s survey findings in a quick and entertaining format. “Peter’s earnestness meets Eric’s smirk, and they’re churning out heavy news for their audience, with a slight boost,” said Lynda McLaughlin, the podcast’s producer who also served as producer of Sean’s radio show. Hanity. “Eric and Peter are the perfect complement to each other.”
What will upcoming Schweizer and GAI investigations and disclosures include? The group does not say – for now. But given Schweizer and GAI’s track record, whatever that is, it will involve exposing secrets and shaping history. “Call us old school, but we believe in following the money and the facts without fear, no matter where they lead,” Schweizer said. The Drill Down Podcast allows us to expose cronyism and put information directly into the hands of the American people. This is, in our view, the best and most powerful way to start holding the government to account.
