Patrick Howley (born 1989) is an American conservative journalist. He is a reporter for The Daily Caller in Washington, D.C.[1] He was also a staff writer for The Washington Free Beacon, an online news publication based in Washington, D.C.[2]

Howley previously served as an assistant editor for The American Spectator.[3] His work has been featured by the Wall Street Journal,[4] National Review,[5] and Sean Hannity.[6]

In October 2013, Howley reported that the White House and former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner exchanged confidential taxpayer information.[7]

Howley's 2014 report on the Department of Veterans Affairs' destruction of patient medical records prompted congressional calls for federal investigations.[8]

Howley was the first journalist to flag remarks by Affordable Care Act consultant Jonathan Gruber on "the stupidity of the American voter." [9]
