Welcome to The Citizen’s Brief


Our mission

The Citizen's Brief produces exceptional non-partisan analysis on Congress, the White House, the courts, and foreign policy from a Christian perspective. Staffed by a talented crew of students, we strive for truthful and direct reporting of political events through our online publications and the Cross the Line podcast.

We believe that politics doesn’t have to be a partisan, fear-based exercise. Rather, we can engage fellow Americans on the issues with grace and truth, preserving our Christian witness while informing the culture with the objective truth of Scripture.


Stay informed

You don’t have to worry about missing any new articles, newsletters, or discussions: every new edition of the newsletter and episode of the podcast goes directly to your email inbox.

Feature articles are published each Monday, Caleb Steindel’s The Life Line is produced every other Thursday, and the TCB newsletter is released each Friday. Cross the Line podcast episodes are posted on Saturdays.
