You might be familiar with Natasha Bertrand. The journalist has extensively covered the ongoing Trump–Russia investigation.

Our Natasha Bertrand wiki sheds light on this reporter who asks the tough questions.
Her Journalism Career Started in College
Very little is known about the journalist’s early life when she lived and studied at college in New York. Natasha Bertrand is a Vassar College graduate and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and philosophy.
She got her journalistic start at Vassar as the assistant editor and op-ed columnist for the The Miscellany News. A college newspaper is serious business, mind you.
She helped plan the contents of the publication, verified every detail, wrote and edited op-ed pieces, developed ideas, and assigned writers.
As if that wasn’t enough, she covered national and international political news on a weekly basis. All this while playing in the Vassar College orchestra! Did we mention that she’s fluent in Spanish, as well?
She went on to study government and philosophy at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). In London, she also participated in the LSE Orchestra.
She Worked at a European Think Tank
Bertrand started as a research intern at FRIDE, a European think-tank based in Spain. She was also a corporate social responsibility intern at IPIECA in London.
She ventured into journalism when she was hired as an editorial intern by Business Insider in 2014. Three months on the job and she was promoted to reporter!
She went from breaking news editor to senior reporter and is currently the political correspondent for the publication.
In February, Natasha Bertrand joined The Atlantic as a staff writer covering national security and the intelligence community, where she will continue to follow the Trump–Russia investigation.
Bertrand prominently features as a contributor on NBC News and is often seen on MSNBC news panels as well. Her latest appearance was on MSNBC’s The Last Word to give her insight into the Michael Cohen development.
She Took on President Trump’s Lawyer
Back in September 2017, Bertrand wrote an analysis regarding the firing of former FBI director James Comey. The piece she wrote contained excerpts of the letter Trump drafted to Comey explaining his ouster.
The letter was never sent, but Bertrand wrote in the piece that the letter could be used by Robert Mueller as evidence in his current investigation.
Bertrand later emailed Ty Cobb, then-White House special counsel who retired in May 2018, to ask why the letter wasn’t sent. He refused to answer but said that Trump had wide support within the White House to fire Comey.
When she asked more follow-up questions, Cobb responded with, “Are you on drugs? Have you read anything else on this???”
Bertrand posted screenshots of her exchange with Cobb on Twitter. The response was massive. Cobb’s unprofessional behavior was criticized by Twitterati.
She responded to him that she was not on drugs, but he has since been silent on the matter.
“Cobb supposedly has a great reputation and is a very respected lawyer,” Bertrand said. “He was brought in to bring some discipline to the whole operation. So I wasn’t expecting that response to what I thought was a pretty basic question.”
Bertrand continues to give a non-partisan perspective on the ongoing developments in the Russian investigation in The Atlantic.
