From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard (born 1957[1]) is the international business editor of the Daily Telegraph. A long-time opponent of the EU's constitution and monetary union, he was the Telegraph's Europe correspondent in Brussels from 1999 to 2004.

During his time as the Sunday Telegraph's Washington bureau chief in the early 1990s, Evans-Pritchard became known for his controversial stories about President Clinton, the 1993 death of Vincent Foster, and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing[citation needed] .

Evans-Pritchard is the son of E. E. Evans-Pritchard, who was Professor of Social Anthropology at Oxford University from 1946 to 1970.[citation needed]

He was educated at Malvern College, Trinity College, Cambridge University, and La Sorbonne.[citation needed] Before joining the Daily Telegraph in 1991, he wrote about Central America for The Economist [citation needed]. He was Washington correspondent for London's Spectator in the mid-1980s.

He is the author of The Secret Life of Bill Clinton (1997) which was published by conservative publishing firm Regnery Publishing.[2] In this book, he elaborates on assertions that the Oklahoma City bombing was an FBI sting operation that went horribly wrong, that warnings by an ATF undercover agent were ignored, and that the Justice Department subsequently engaged in a cover-up.[3]

Coverage of U.S. politics

During his time in Washington, his stories often attracted the ire of the Clinton administration, and on Evans-Pritchard's departure from Washington in 1997 a White House aide was quoted in George saying "That's another British invasion we're glad is over. The guy was nothing but a pain in the ass". The pain was felt most acutely in the Foster case, in which Evans-Pritchard was almost as much a player as he was a reporter[citation needed]. His efforts in ferreting out the witness, Patrick Knowlton, whose last name had been spelled "Nolton" in the Park Police report on Foster's death, resulted eventually in a lawsuit by Knowlton against the FBI and the inclusion of Knowlton's lawyer's letter as an appendix to Kenneth Starr's report on Foster's death. [4] In his book, Evans-Pritchard responded vigorously to White House charges against him [5].
