The Washington Post Issue Engine API stores transcripts and statements from political speakers, organized by issue and accompanied by fact checks from the Washington Post. Statements must come with a speaker, a date, text and a URL to the source transcript and Web site. If the statement meets the criteria, The Washington Post's Trove content analysis service will assign it an issue or multiple issues. Developers access the statements by providing fields for all the criteria a statement must have. The API is RESTful with JSON responses.
