President Trump to tap ex-TBOR Communications’ Ric Grenell as Acting Head of Intelligence (NY Times)

The New York Times reports that the Communications Director who launched Take Back Our Republic and secured stories in the Washington Post, Fox News, Meghan McCain’s radio program, NewsMax and other outlets will be named by President Trump as Acting Head of Intelligence. Richard (Ric) Grenell garnered national attention for the new group Take Back Our Republic and facilitated interviews after the group was announced for the first time at a meeting of Grover Norquist’s center-right meeting in Washington DC.

The other member of the Communications team was Chris Byrne, who later moved to the Trump campaign and facilitated Take Back Our Republic delivering a paper on the conservative reasons for campaign finance reform to Brad Parscale (now Trump campaign manager) at Trump Tower days before the first Presidential debate with Hillary Clinton. The same paper was delivered to the Clinton campaign as well.

Grenell found other opportunities to help TBOR, including a rally outside the White House in 2016, before being tapped by President Trump as German Ambassador. The entire TBOR team congratulates the person who put them on the map. Click here for the New York Times piece on Ric Grenell. Read the whole story from the New York Times here
