Senior Washington Reporter Devin Dwyer covers the U.S. Supreme Court, Congress, the White House and campaign politics for all ABC News programs and platforms based in Washington, D.C.

Dwyer reports regularly for ABC News Live, the network’s 24/7 news and live events streaming channel on Hulu, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, AppleTV, YouTube, Apple News, Facebook, Twitter, and the ABC News site and mobile phone apps.

His reporting also appears on Nightline, World News Tonight, Good Morning America, ABC News Radio, and ABCNews.com.

Dwyer previously led the network's team of correspondents and producers covering the Trump administration and Congress, launching the D.C. bureau's Pennsylvania Avenue unit in the final year of the Obama administration and seeing it through the historic presidential transition well into President Trump's first term.

Dwyer has reported from Washington since 2009, covering the president, vice president and secretary of state from 28 states, and more than a dozen countries. He has reported on policy debates and congressional scandals, “fiscal cliffs” and government shutdowns, and the impeachment proceedings of 2020.

In 2010, he led ABC News’ coverage of the Affordable Care Act and its implementation. During the 2012 presidential election, Dwyer was the ABC off-air reporter covering President Obama’s re-election campaign and second inauguration. He subsequently produced an exclusive special on Air Force One, giving viewers the first and only nose-to-tail inside look at the plane during the Obama presidency.

Outside the beltway, Dwyer has reported on California wildfires and Massachusetts blizzards; the 2011 shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords in Arizona; and the 2010 Upper Big Branch mine disaster in West Virginia.

Dwyer, a Minnesota native, graduated from Dartmouth College with a bachelor’s degree in history and from Columbia University with a master’s degree in journalism.
