"Not. Hey Hey, look I think you're onto something here. Is that that that's? That's my point about the career? People who? I've had actually career. Intelligence officials say to me. This is our entire existence of who we are just to keep secrets, and yet we can't keep secrets and wiki leaking, because we don't like something or are we leak raw intelligence, which is worse? Look we also have politicians who decides to fan, the flames and play the game I was GONNA say. Is that just because of how politicize? Everything's gotten during this last few years, and now everybody's just like everybody's losing it and just doing shit that they normally wouldn't do well. I think yes I. DO think that but I think that's across the board Washington I. Mean You look at like you know not to get too part of the partisan here, but but Joe Biden Nancy. Chuck, Schumer they've been there for more than forty years each I mean. It's kind of ridiculous to have somebody who's been in the job for forty years. Say I'M GONNA clean it up, or here's the PROBABL- I mean if they know that. They have solved the problem already. Good pensions, probably though you saying because that's their rhetoric rhetoric is we're gonNA whereas like Mitch, McConnell. Just saying I'm just hold on. On all sides for sure yeah. No I, don't I think you're hitting on something very true? which is that we no longer have a problem in Washington. That is Republican versus Democrat. It's Washington versus the rest of the country. That's. And I have to tell you I. think that Bernie. Sanders is touching on this I. Think Elizabeth Warren Touches on this uncertainly. Donald Trump touches on this, but the people who aren't of Washington. even though Bernie Sanders has been there forever. He's done a good job of saying. Look at this place is a mess. This protects itself. They've got lobbyists. They get paid all the people who like the rules of Washington who are getting paid like the backroom deals all of that. They don't want the place to change because they're really benefiting everytime. We economy that goes down. The loss set. Up People by bigger homes and they're construct every time you go to Washington. There's a new construction project. Rick not to mention the best happy hours in town and the best call girls in town hundred. And government government. People can tend to be a little too proud of how it's recession proof. I think. Is really really cool. How how the Hell do you get that job to lake? Kill someone with like a paper clip. Is there a test? You how you get the Job Donald. Trump administration, you don't. He is the type that you know. Desperation is the worst smelling Cologne. When you really want something in your pushing heart with him, he's thinking. You gotTA, alterior motive. He likes to kind of thing you know. Hey, this guy would be good in this position and and. Surprise you. I actually liked it. I liked the way he thinks I liked the way he pushes when when you. See, it doesn't. Go down this road briefing him. Normally, it's always like a meandering question and pushing you don't. Assume it would go. That's interesting. That's that's what John. McAfee touchstone when we interviewed him, and that's also how we've talked to a recently. How George Washington was not. He didn't campaign for the job. Right and maximum. Maybe you should people that don't selection better than election. Exactly was his. Taking it away from stuff going on at home, you were the acting director of National Intelligence. Are Aliens Real, can you? Can you tell us now, yeah? You WanNa. Know something that my biggest regrets. Is is because of Covid I couldn't go to. The secret places and checkout all that Oh man, so so what we know about the Computer World I are Aliens Real? Do you know? I do know. I think this is all about the definition of alien rights. I talk about a foreign alien. You're going to think of something from a movie. And if you remember that the government just classifies ufo's as you know, they're unidentified, raises the guy at some sort of an object, and so the problem always is is that we're talking over each other. The government talks about UFO's in aliens as very real and questionable things, and yet the public immediately takes this as odds a little Martian with a little. And that's what we're seeing so I do think that you F os you know probably document to the exist in some form or fashion, unidentified, flying object, or whatever they're called now, but what about? Beings from a different planet that are smarter than us that can destroy us. Do they exist now now? You're getting into classified information. I get to plead sources. Okay. That's fine. We know about the computer. The computer that you can like the. It's like Google with Info about people. Who was the first thing you put? Just that Peter. Rates on this show as I've already checked. You guys out already. We we're trying to push back on me and create some sort of narrative. You know I immediately type Oh. You're crash. Mesa Open. Book and so we're just just fat, fat and super.

"We're your folks proud of you? When you come home with your swing swinging that job title around. They're like man we did. We did good. I don't know. My mom is a little bit nervous about everything. Well. Why should she rick is? Deep State. Good question, you know. I will tell you this in my experience in working state. Department for eleven years in working deny in meeting all sorts of career officials, the career officials are really annoyed with the leakers and really annoyed the people who are not committed to doing their job. By far the majority of people WANNA do their job, but there is this little element of people who. Clearly can't. Handle, having a person in the White House that they don't agree with. And so you know they leak against them and they tried to do everything they can to. Stop that policy I find it to be the Washington way in. It's really ridiculous, so that's the move came in to clean up and the mood. I mean scale. Friend of the show. He was gonNA. Do some serious. Swamp draining with those. From inside the swamp. Nine days later. What happened the Leaguers? Is it impossible to get the leakers out of there because we grew up in DC we you know we have friends and family members at work the community it's very anti intelligence community to be loose lipped is that? What's the sang from back? Home in DC isn't that you can take people out of the swamp, but you can't take. The swamp out of the swamp isn't. Is Not. Hey Hey, look I think you're onto something here.

"You're the acting. You're not supposed to do anything and I said you. You know only in Washington. DC are supposed to take a job and just sit there and not do anything in the rest of the world. When you take a job, you actually do the job. Yeah! I saw you at a couple of tweets about that. People were angry that you were doing the job. which is sort of DC one on? Okay, so just one more for you. That sort of is about everything going on right now. As we watch the protests and the riots and everything else I think a lot of people are wondering. Something like that this doesn't feel organic that ANTIFA. which now it sounds like. Did the president actually classified material, or or that's in motion or We're. It happened when I was on my way out so i. think what has happened is is that the attorney general has classified them and they're now making the the appropriate steps, which means you can go after their finances. You can freeze their finances. And everybody involved. So with that lamb. The. Let's just put people on on morning here, the accountants, but these people, the banks that fund the money. The. That work in these businesses, if the person is a CEO or affiliated or an owner of some sort, so there's a whole bunch and I think the family members. If you've got joint bank, accounts are also going to be affected. You probably saw this, but andy no is now suing rose city. Anti and I have a feeling once they get into discovery. It's going to take out blue check journalists and New York, times people and progressive non profits and the whole thing, but my my specific question on that is it feels like as we watch the riots everywhere and unfortunately I'm here in L. A. in New York City like most of the progressive cities are the ones that are that are burning. Do you guys have any evidence at how much of this was actually coordinated beforehand? And did you sense that this was coming at some point? Because if not, that does seem like some sort of intelligence failure. Right because this this thing go ongoing. When I can say is I know that they're looking into it. I was on my way out by the time that this was developing and so I know that there are teams of people looking at it. We've got an amazing. Counterterrorism Center we got a counter intelligence. People, who are experts in looking into these issues? I know specifically through the intelligence community and people who work at Odeon. I that they are completely focused on this, and there's one thing that I can say is that bill bar is a great American wants to be thorough. He wants to be fair. He looks at the details and we're really lucky to have them. All Right, rick I know I gotTA. Let you go but I am doing one bonus question, which is now that you're back in California I know you, WanNa, relax a little bit. You guys are GonNa take some time, but this is my public plea, which will be put on Youtube and twitter and everywhere else for Rick, Grenell, for Governor of California. Will you make that commitment? Or Mayor of Los Angeles Gimme something we need you come on..

"What I think Dave is important and what I learned through eight years of the UN, is that kind of this transparency? And Truth and reconciliation is really important when you have a crisis and you have a problem. Let's come clean and I. I fundamentally believe in what I think that the intelligence community the current intelligence community, not the former intelligence community that the New York. Times and the Washington Post constantly You'll, you'll notice. They always say a former intelligence official that clearly. Former person who was a political appointee? It's also a source on Capitol Hill. WHO COULD BE JANITOR? You just don't know yet. The current intelligence community was clamoring for reform which I delivered. It wasn't truly wasn't most of these ideas were not my ideas. I, just said Yes to him because the system was saying. We need to reform in the current intelligence community believes a couple of bad apples that they gotta get out there and that they were manipulated. And I will say this. There were red flags early on in the Russian investigation from a variety of agencies. And some people made those red flags, and those those comments from people coming forward and saying this Russian stuff is not true. They classified that information pushed it away. I've seen that information and I've called for it to be declassified. It's a process that's ongoing. It takes time. I wasn't there long enough to do it, but there are instances where red flags were raised very early on in certain agencies and requested information to come out and I hope that it will. All right so just two more quick for you, because I know you're tight on time. So I the first one is sort of simple, which is why not stay there? president trump, and I want you to stay, or did you not want to stay I? Mean it seems like you're clearly the guy for the job, but it was only a couple of months really. So. You know I've been in Germany for for two years and and I really decided when we went there that we weren't just GonNa have parties at night and I wasn't going to do a travel log of how great Germany was, but I was the US ambassador, and I was going to work really hard to push on US policy and we did. We worked really hard, and I had an amazing embassy. Foreign Service officers who are truly great people who WanNa do good work and they were hungry to do good. Good work and it's exhausting and and look I. I'm I'm totally healthy. I feel great, but I'm also very sensitive about You know not taking it too far. I had a cancer scare and it was pretty serious when it came up. Fast I'm still getting checked every three months I all honesty. I think that has a little bit to do with it. I was tired I had in my mind thought we'd only do about two and a half years, and then when the president called and asked me to. Temporarily, do deny I said ninety days turned out to be more than ninety days because of covid but. I'm just somebody that when I have the job, I don't want to sit there and just collect the paycheck I'm GonNa do it to the best of my ability. And when I got in, I, decided to go, and in reform it, because people were clamoring for it, and a lot of politicians on Capitol Hill got angry because they wanted me to just sit there..
Trump Taps John Ratcliffe for Director of National Intelligence
"It appears trump does plan to use a lot of ratcliffe announcing today that he will nominate Ratcliffe for Director of National Intelligence. Now ratcliffe name sounds familiar. It's because trump did this get and he did. He did this before he was nominated by trump for the same job last July and that nomination was pulled in early August because there was not enough support in the Senate among Republicans over concerns over rat cliffs credentials House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi responded to the nomination. In a statement saying quote Congressman Ratcliffe has shown an unacceptable embrace of conspiracy theories and clear disrespect and distrust of our law enforcement and Intelligence Patriots. That disqualify him from leading American intelligence community. We call upon the Senate to remember that they take an oath to protect America. Not The president and vote against this nomination joining me now. Representative Roger Christner Mortiz a Democrat from Illinois. A member of the House Permanent Select Cup Select Committee on intelligence with John. Ratcliffe UP Congressman. Good to see you again. This one's tricky side. John Ratcliffe for a second. There's a guy he's a guy who's GONNA have trouble getting confirmed there are Republicans have serious concerns and we can talk in a minute. About what the reasons for those concerns are however he's actually going to have trouble getting confirmed the president's other guy who put into place. Richard Grenell is also widely thought to be not qualified to be the director of National Intelligence. But he can only keep the job until March eleventh unless Ratcliffe doesn't get nominated anytime. Soon in which case Greg Elkins Day on the job. So there's some trickery involved here right right. It's something called the Federal Vacancies. Act And perhaps your audience already knows about it. But basically this act enables Grenell to stay for as long as the nomination is pending and then if it fails for another two hundred ten days so practically another seven months after that and then the president could nominate another person and so while we might succeed in other words. This is what the president does got a lot of acting people and he likes exactly he he does. And and Mr Grenell in particular Is is considered to be a political hack and the reason why people are so upset about Mr Grenell In part is that he is basically going to be administering a loyalty test to all the people in the intelligence community whom the president suspects as being part of the deep state and this review is going to basically happen during the pendency of this nomination of Mr Ratcliffe and maybe beyond and grave damage could be done not only to the intelligence community but our national security in the meantime right. And here's the issue and I want to remind people about the history behind the director of National Intelligence and the intelligence problems that contributed to nine eleven. Right there was. There's some thinking and I want to Monday morning quarterback but there's some thinking that if all our intelligence organizations had shared their information properly we might have been able to prevent nine eleven. The director of national television's is the person who's supposed to do that. They should be the best informed. Smartest most qualified person in this country. Correct and that does not seem to be a priority to this president. No and and this kind of takes us to pivot point right now which is Is Is the intelligence community going to be led by someone who lives in the world of truth or is it going to be someone who lives in the world of propaganda and in the world of propaganda? You Know Truth Tellers are silenced and political loyalties are rewarded. But we know what that world looks like. We don't have to look further than China and the Corona Corona virus. China is a world of propaganda silence. The critics say silence the truth tellers and now they helped spawn a global pandemic. That's going to kill a lot of people unfortunately and heard a lot of hurt a lot of Americans too so this is why this is a consequence of lying. A little under the radar. But I think this is a a remarkable importance. I'm glad you join me tonight. To talk about a congressman Roger Crystal Mosey. Thank you as always

"A step forward on designating Hezbollah every time. I see the president. He asks me about defense spending. So we've got to continue pushing the Germans to increase defense spending. But I think lastly what I would say is. It's really important over the next year that we in the United States understand that what we have done over. The last three years in terms of our allies is so big and positive. I really don't believe that we should ever use as a criteria popularity and the reality is without being political or partisan just looking at the facts. Barack Obama was wildly popular in Germany but they ignored almost all of his ears policy. Right mean the Germans killed T. tip to his signature economic program they continue. They built the Nord Stream two pipeline. When he said no they wouldn't bring back the Nazi prison guard in New York City when he asked about that. Talk about that ambassador. So just so you know ambassador Rick. Grenell working with President Trump deported in actual Nazi from the United States of America back to Germany from world. War Two something. That Barack Obama did not do so. Talk about this media would never tell you about this but a guy that actually fought in World War Two. This is a fundamental story to the problem of the media because for thirteen years the US government has said. This guy should be deported back to Germany for thirteen years. Charlie I'll tell you in my confirmation hearing. That was one of the questions I got. What are you going to do about jock apology? The Nazi prison guard living comfortably in New York City. And the State Department told me well. You have to say that you are going to work hard and diplomatically bureaucratic. Yeah Bureaucratic language of. You're going to work hard but I took it seriously because president trump said. Hey can you get this guy deported? Gone so my very first meeting with the foreign minister to have a sit down with foreign minister of Germany. I brought up as the first issue. I said you know I gotTa tell you this. Nazi prison guard living in New York City and for thirteen years. Our courts have said he should be deported back to Germany and by the way this is not a legal question for Germany of what because the guy didn't have German citizenship anymore. He had US citizenship. He lied to us. It was very complicated. Legally I just kind of pushed all the legal stuff aside and I said to the Germans you have a moral obligation. This guy worked for the then German government he worked for the German government. You have a moral obligation to bring him back. I do not want this ninety three year old. Nazi prison guard dying in New York City in comfort. And so when I brought it up to the foreign minister shockingly. The foreign minister said I've never heard of the case. Now meanwhile the State Department and everybody else we've asked so much you're gonna get a stone cold reaction so we begin to push all throughout the embassy staff. Everybody asked about it. In about four five months after pushing and asking Lo and behold the Germans took him back we deported. This guy who had been literally for thirteen years and and yet my conclusion was that the State Department previously had not made this a priority and so once again when the president says he wants to do something and his ambassadors follow through and actually implement the president's vision is which is to get the Nazi out and we actually bring that case to the forefront. We have partners. That will do that. And so what what you missed in the media on this case was I think the condemnation of the previous people who tried there should have been an accountability to say. Why is he being deported now and he wasn't thirteen years ago. Why did it take thirteen years? Who didn't ask who didn't ask in a way. This is once again. The style question does President Trump's style benefit the American people or not. We have so many examples that his style actually benefits and moves the ball forward every single time. You have a debate on style take it and ambassador. You said another thing that's really important. Which is every time you see. The president he's asking you about are the Germans shipping and what that means forever in this room is that the president is wanted to protect your tax dollars and saying why aren't other countries paying for the stuff that we're giving them wait. It's almost as if he's questioning foreign aid. That's a good thing by the way some that he does with every single country and it's not unique to what the left is trying to do right now. Anyway you're going to make a point on that. No I think I think that's exactly right. I mean we should. We should have zero based budgeting right. We should we should have every year every January. Everybody's zeroed out and we have a new debate about where our tax dollars are going to go. I mean I'll give you an example. We give five hundred million dollars to Zambia. Five hundred million dollars to Zambia. Why the State Department has process there and so look. I think that we should have some foreign aid. But we should have a debate about what's useful and what they're spending it on. It shouldn't be automatic. It shouldn't be presumed that we're just going to give you this every year. And you'RE GONNA come up with new ways to spend it. I would say every year. You tell us what you're GonNa do with our money and we will decide whether or not that's good enough project to give hardworking American tax dollars to you for that so ambassador enclosing any other closing thoughts. You wanted to mention things that you're working on. An you know ways that this audience can help you in this. Great Group of students can continue to fight for our country. Well the one thing I would just say thank you to all of you because I see your support on Social Media. It's incredibly important to support ambassadors and appointees. I want you to know that we see it. We feel it and it's incredibly helpful to keep us when we're under attack. And so I. I want to just say that as I talked to people and as I walked the halls and there's so much encouragement that it really feels like something that is helpful to the process.

Getting the government you served the UN and now serving our country quite well on the international stage. Yeah Look I you know. I was an intern. On Capitol Hill. I was a staffer for lots of different. Campaigns have done five presidential campaigns. I've done countless congressional campaigns. Done a Senate race. What what I think that you have to do. Is You have to understand that when you're young and you don't have a lot of bills you might think that you do you really don't when you can live on someone's couch when you can live with four people in a in an apartment when you don't have a spouse and children to take care of go get experience go get experience and by the way. I'm a firm believer in trying things because you you're interested in it may not be your career path. I've done some things that are not completely on my career path but I learned through that process of what I didn't want to do and that's incredibly valuable so I would say go volunteer on a campaign. Go Be an intern on Capitol Hill. If you're interested in politics go work for an NGO and volunteer. Get that experience and bite the bullet when you can you know when I when I worked on Capitol Hill. I didn't have enough money to take a taxi home. I had to take the subway sometimes at eleven or twelve o'clock at night terrible parts of Washington. I look back and I think how foolish that was put. That was what I had to do. You had to. You had to get on the subway at midnight after working very late and go to part you know I lived in in really terrible parts of Washington DC. Because I couldn't afford the nice parts but I think that that that sacrifice is incredibly important later. Because I'll tell you what it does for me. Now when I look at the interns who who come out to my house for a dinner or an event which is twenty minutes out a in Berlin I think about the interns and I think I always think how are they getting home because I know I know what it took to get home sometimes and so I always make sure that that somebody else who's a little bit higher up what's a minicab pays for it. Get some home somehow. Takes care of them but but I think my point is. Is that when you do the hard work as a young person? It makes you a better manager later because you remember the sacrifices we have to have situations where people work hard. It's not comfortable because it makes you later in life. I think a better leader no doubt and so going into the next year. What are some of the biggest policy objectives you have that? You're trying to accomplish both in Germany and Europe broadly. There's a lot happening. There's a lot that you've seen that has improved What what are you? What are you saying? Some of the biggest challenges and objectives that you're trying to go after one. Recent addition to my job as president trump has named me the special envoy for coastal and Serbia. So I'm really concentrating on what's happening in the Balkans We've two countries that are having a very difficult time. Getting along and a lot of businesses are not willing to go into this region because they fear of conflict so I would say the first issue is to is to make sure that we can make some progress on Kosovo Serbia. I will say that we have made a little progress. We have not announced it yet. Stay tuned I think we are making some some good efforts and the parties are coming together a little bit more. So that's one. I think to continue doing in Germany. What we need to do on Nordstrom to which a big move tonight continuing on Hezbollah which we've had a big win this week on on having the German parliament take.
"richard grenell" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Hey everybody welcome to this edition of the Charlie Kirk Show. You might have saw recently. That Ambassador Rick. Grenell was just appointed to the director of National Intelligence position by president trump a totally historic and monumental move for our country. It just so happens at turning point. Usa Student Action Summit. I sat down with ambassador. Rick Grenell now acting director of the denied the Director of National Intelligence and we've exclusive interview with him that was only heard by the people in the room and not really heard on any podcast or youtube channel sense so we wanted to bring it right to you a conversation with Ambassador Rick Grenell and now acting director of the DNA were so excited to have him on the show today. So enjoy this conversation with the acting director of the Deny Rick Grenell Charlie. What you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. We are lucky to have charlie. Charlie cuts running the White House. Folks I WANNA thank Joe. He's an incredible guy his spirit his love of this country's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organisations ever created turning point. Usa not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries destroyed lives and we are going to fight for freedom campuses across the country. That's why we are here the morning. Welcome ambassador thank you. I hope everyone and honor stands how honored we should feel to have the ambassador to Germany. The United States conference which really acts as basically the league ambassador to all of Europe and has done an unbelievable job representing our country representing our national interest. And representing are terrific. President and Rick is just GonNa Smile nicely when I say this to the Europeans. That have not always been pitching in to what they should be overseas but ambassador. Rick Grenell. What an honor to have you here at turning point. Usa How's it? Been being an ambassador for the United States in for Germany. And what have you learned and what you've been seeing on the front lines. Well I have to say I served at the UN. For eight years I served for four. Us ambassadors and. I have to say it's fundamentally different to work for president trump to have a president who always has my back. Who always gives good ideas who wants the United States and it's very clear that we ambassadors are. They're not to do some sort of travelogue throughout Germany and take a bunch of pictures and say how great Germany is. I'm there to say how great America is and so what I make. I make no apologies. Being there representing America. We'll tell you a very senior person in Germany once recently said to me. When are you going to start promoting Germany and I said look the reality? Is You have an ambassador in Washington. Dc that's supposed to be promoting Germany. I'm here to promote America. So it's not my job actually to promote Germany. That is very different. That is very different than the diplomatic. Half of the past people have gone over to these countries and they feel that somehow it's their responsibility to promote that country and I was very clear in the president was very clear. You're going there for the American people and Ambassador tells tells what it's like to work for president trump. I mean again. You said you've been you know in in other for the UN and you've been around all sorts of leaders. What's it like? What's what's what's his work ethic? Tell us all about all that. Well first of all. He's he's extremely focused very funny. Extremely generous always thoughtful whether it signing things I recently was on Air Force. One with me and he was handed me the little thing thing. Isn't this fun. Look at this? Look at this. He's just a normal human being. Who is really focused in on his job. So I I like it. I mean he he calls up and he'll say you know. Hey I need you to focus on medical devices what what's happening to our medical device. Companies in Europe is not fair and so he's totally focused on what's fair. He said the same thing about liquid natural gas he said the same thing about car tariffs. I love working for him because he is extremely focused on the American people and make no mistake about it. That when he gets when he gets hit by the media when he gets hit for being un-diplomatic or whatever the term is. I actually think it's a real positive because the people don't like what's been happening. Typically with diplomacy and so do the opposite of what's been happening typically is exactly what the American people want I. I'm very clear on it and it's So fun to work for them when when he gives us that charge and then supports us. It is almost march. And you know what that means is almost march madness. When my favorite times of the year I Love College Football Absolu- I think college. Football is the best sport out there.

So you've been working on some very important efforts in regards to Hezbollah a tell us about this and for people that don't know has blobby Asli Tear Organization that rain's terror on our our great ally Israel in the Middle East. So tell us about that if you look at. What's been happening just on the streets of Iran with with the people in Iran or the streets in Lebanon? What's clear is that we need to help them by designating Hezbollah by being very clear in the West and this is a the western world should be very clear that Hezbollah as a terrorist organization that they support terrorism that they are not only support terrorism in the Middle East but they supported in Europe. We have plenty of examples that Hezbollah has put forward terrorist plots. They tried to blow up a conference in Paris. Recently these are serious issues and yet the European Union has done something that has below themselves. They don't even do which is split. The organisation into a political and military arm and Europe has tried to dance around the idea that has is not a terrorist organization. What we have tried to do in Germany is to ask the German government for the last year and a half to step out and lead in Europe and to designate Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. What we saw yesterday from the members of the Bundestag which is the German parliament is that they voted overwhelmingly to designate Hezbollah a terrorist organization. They're stepping out in Europe. We we will see the other. Europeans do it as well because now they have cover from from the Germans. This is fundamentally a very good thing. We in the United States has have designated Hezbollah as a terrorist organization for a very long time. And now we're going to see. Europe began to follow you. Also were have been working on making sure that the president's deletion of the Iran deal is fulfilled with our allies. Talk a little bit about that and some of the challenges around it were. It seems that some other European allies are not the you know. Always fulfilling that yeah. That's an understatement. You know my eight years inside the Security Council at the. Un taught me that the UN Security Council international sanctions policy does not work unless the United States leads. We have a premiere world banking system. We are commerce is the best when lead others will follow because they're forced to and so when president trump made clear that the. Jcp away this Iran deal was a bad deal. The ambassadors in Europe had to really follow so on my first day as ambassador in Germany. I us made it very clear. That companies in Europe companies in Germany have a choice they can either do business with Iran or they can do business with the United States but they cannot do both and we were very clear on that and I took a lot of heat for being clear and saying.
Trump names staunch loyalist and current US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell as acting intelligence chief
"Good which were now was an excellent human being he is the current US ambassador to Germany has now been tapped as the acting director of national intelligence media going nuts over this how could trump give this winter troll access to the D. N. I. slot well here's the thing Richard going now has not done lie to Congress James clapper the acting director of national intelligence under Brock about a lie to Congress and then continue to maintain the based on his innate knowledge of the intelligence process he's get inside information suggesting that trump was working for the Russian right now the comes the first openly gay cabinet member if yeah if he actually becomes the acting director of national intelligence he is also as ambassador to Germany there there's nothing is in friendly shocking about any of that Susan rice became national security adviser after the experience of being you and ambassador so the suggestion that Richmond Alice somehow I'm qualified for the position or because he's on Twitter and he's a Republican he's not qualified for the position is ridiculous James clapper was far more of a political hack like far more of a political hack and rich girl now has ever been it's not particularly close I am fairly certain that and which is not gonna commit any crimes in the process of his job
Intelligence official warned lawmakers that Russia was interfering in 2020 to help Trump
"Secret freezing last week by a top intelligence official Shelby Pearson has put Russian election interference in the spotlight again sources say person told lawmakers the intelligence community believed Russia is taking steps to interfere in the twenty twenty election to help president trump get reelected a source says house Republicans were extremely upset by the insinuation The New York Times reports president trump chastised outgoing director of national intelligence Joseph McGuire for even allowing the briefing to take place the president is replacing McGuire with Richard Grenell the current ambassador to Germany who has no experience in intelligence
Richard Grenell is a disastrous DNI choice
"President trump has long been accused of priding loyalty to him above all other qualities. Way above experience way above independence. His critics such as house speaker. Nancy Pelosi today are arguing that the appointment of Richard Grenell to be the acting director of national intelligence is just the latest case in point. Grenell the current. Us Ambassador to Germany is hardly known for his intelligence expertise. He is primarily known and beloved by conservatives for his outspoken defense advocacy of the president and his policies as C. N. N.'s. Alex Marquardt reports. Grenell also has a long history of rhetorical knife fighting as a fierce even vicious partisan the director of national intelligence is a job that by definition demands experience requires objective presentation of intelligence and a non political approach in Rick Grenell. The president has chosen. The direct opposite are found. The position of director. Nash intelligence a very tough. And so I I can't imagine The challenge that somebody has in that position learning. Abc's of intelligence on the job. American critics like Democratic Senator Ron Wyden on the Senate intelligence committee blasting the choice today as proof that president trump values unquestioning obedience over the safety of the American people. That sentiment echoed by House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi today. Who said Grenell's sole qualification is his absolute loyalty to the President Senior. Republicans though are silent over making Grenell. The acting director which by law is someone who shall have extensive national security expertise. Grenell has no intelligence or military experience. He's the current ambassador to Germany. A loyal attack dog for president trump. Who has a history of vulgar sexist now deleted tweets about women including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former first lady? Michelle Obama saying Michelle. Obama is working out on the biggest loser. She is sweating on the East Room's carpet. There are times where what was intended to be. Humorous turned out to be not so humorous. While many trump allies want to see the president tweet less Grenell supports. It makes my job so much easier. I like having a president who's willing to be very tough. Grenell replaces acting Director Joseph. Maguire a retired admiral and former navy seal who has been leaving the intelligence communities seventeen different organizations since last August McGuire had stayed under the president's radar rarely speaking in public. But he did voice his support for the whistle blower who sparked the investigation that led to the impeachment of president trump. I want to stress that I believe that the whistle blower and the inspector general have acted in good faith throughout so jake. This now means that yet another player in this Ukraine investigation. Joseph Maguire is being pushed out the news coming the same day that a top Pentagon official John Rude who is also involved was asked to resign truth tellers and non loyalists clearly not valued by the trump administration. Meanwhile Rick Grenell tweeted today that this is a temporary appointment and that the president will nominate someone else to be Director of National Intelligence. Soon
Trump taps Richard Grenell as acting head of intelligence
"Well the key feature of this job of director of national intelligence is overseeing seventeen intelligence agencies in Grinnell has no intelligence experience you hasn't been an executive of a big organization and there's certainly the argument that with trump sort of free wheeling approach you want somebody with a strong steady hand if the head of the intelligence committee one of the key jobs is is overseeing the security of the twenty twenty elections in Virginia senator mark Warner the top Democrat on the intelligence committee says this by by appointing another acting director of national intelligence that the president seems to be sidestepping stepping the Senate's constitutional authority right now it's going to keep being ambassador to Germany even as he takes on this big role well that's what's being reported in a sometimes does happen if you have an official pointed to an acting job they keep their old jobs so this that could well be the case do you think this move so tell us anything about the president and and his relationship with the intelligence community it it really just reaffirms the fact that he's never felt comfortable with career professionals he's he's by pass them for people he sees this as loyalists this is his third director of national intelligence he's on his fourth national security adviser and while the president hasn't had a major security crisis he does have big decisions coming up most immediately possible deal with the Taliban in Afghanistan that's right that's one of the big stories were falling very if your national security correspondent

"richard grenell" Discussed on The Rubin Report
"Or Google. Play the people who benefit from the rules and they want everybody to come in and play by. The rules are on both sides of the aisle. This is not a partisan thing at all. It's you've got to come to our city and play by our rules because we got lobbyist. Take Care of and we've got a system and everybody is participating in the System Marco. Rubio actually talked about this just the other day and I thought it was really good. He was saying look when I came to Washington and I didn't go to their cocktail. Parties eventually didn't get invited to their cocktail parties and then they started sniping at me. Because I wasn't going to their cocktail parties and I recognize that I wasn't playing by the rules and he said trump has done a tenfold. He's come in and completely double down on that and and I think it's right. I think we're getting senators. Ron Johnson I think is another great senator who doesn't play that game. He comes from Wisconsin and plays a different tune. Which is I'm fighting for. The people of Wisconsin Marco Rubio. I think is doing that that we have senators that are beginning to do that and challenge the system and I think it's what the people want. So what's it like? When TRUMP DONALD TRUMP NEW YORK businessman guy becomes president than I assume? You're phone rings one day and he says looking to send somebody over to Germany phone calls it an email to someone else. Reach out to you first. How does that so had been in and around the campaign quite a bit and so there's always a constant conversation calm and there's also I think a question of like who's loyal right. Who who who was here before all of the jobs were available who who was committed and I think they saw that I was very committed in in the campaign and so the conversation to me. Was You know where do you see yourself in the administration or do you want to join the administration and so from the beginning? I just said you know some sort of a foreign policy role you know. Let's let's discuss and then we had that conversation and eventually I was like. I think Germany is a good fit. Yeah So let's actually backup because it's sort of related to what you just said there so you at one point when Romney was running adviser for foreign policy for the campaign right when when Romney was the nominee yeah when he was the nominee thousand twelve and this is now it was really only for a couple of weeks because then some strange stuff happened which is so related to everything else. We're talking about the reality is that it wasn't a couple of weeks because I had been on the prime in the primary doing all this work so I had been with him for a long time. They made it official once he got the nominee nomination with a with a big title. But I had already been there and doing all this work just because you know. I worked in foreign policy for a long time. And as a spokesman I know the media so I know kind of how to define the issue and what the media are thinking. Is that the issue or how they define it and then being on the inside understanding where we wanna go having somebody to help you get there right if the goal is here and the media are here. How do you? How do you educate and so with the relationships that I had with with many reporters? It seemed like a natural fit to be on the campaign as the spokesman. But then as you're pointing to I of course have been out for very long time and had written about the concern. I wrote an article called the conservative case for gay marriage before the fight when we were fighting it and many social conservatives at the time didn't like the fact that Mitt Romney had hired a openly gay foreign policy spokesman and so they came. They came at me pretty hard and the campaign pretty hard by saying sky is for gay marriage. You know you're not. How is this going to work? So you gotta finish that story though so the so. The story ends with you stepping down voluntarily right. Yes so I needed in that instance. I needed somebody to say. This is irrelevant doesn't matter. He's our foreign policy spokesperson. You know so you were looking for Donald Trump. Then actually you know I was. I was looking for somebody that that would define the issues for the Conservatives. As you know this is my campaign and and this is my beliefs and and to make the case and clearly the campaign knew that I was gay before they hired me that that should have been a secret and so I was just looking for a protection and once I saw that this is going to be a complicated issue for the campaign that they don't know how they view this and their reaction to me was. It's best if you just stay quiet and and not make any waves for a while. Let's let this blow over. My reaction was well. It's not gonNA blow over because I'm gay and to it's not going to blow over because it's a campaign People like to inflate issues on campaigns. You it's now in your lap. You're going to have to to solve this and what I eventually saw was that it was too complicated of an issue for them. They couldn't detangle it and they just wanted me to stay quiet. And as the spokesman you can't say quite you're the spokesman quiet smoking so I I consulted with a couple of my mentors and they just said you know what just just resign and give them the ability to go do what they want and so they never replaced me actually campaign so it's funny because I can see you're being you're being honest obviously but also slightly diplomatic here right because you're not trying to throw me under the bus. I get it but without maybe speaking to him specifically. Is that thing that you're talking about exactly what you're describing? Washington is yeah inability to to grapple with something straightforward. Let the media do whatever they want and then all the good people who are trying to do something real are the ones that have to resign or get thrown under the bus or or the rest of it not like that guy. That's like purist and I'm the best in a you know. Everybody should be like me. 'cause that certainly is not the case. I think though Dave that it's a good question and I would say that the answer is more. I joined this kind of conservative movement in one thousand nine hundred ninety two and I had been seen movement and I'm somebody who the glass is always half full and so I always try to make sure that we're growing and changing the party from the inside and so I think the answer is I felt like there was change? Always happening that. We were on the right trajectory and that even being hired was a great moment. And I'm not the candidate right so so I don't WanNa be the story. I really don't want I wanNA help the candidate and so I recognize that I had pushed as far as I could in that particular situation and I wrote an article. I think a week later saying how I think that that Mitt Romney would be a better president than Barack Obama and that I fully endorsed him so. I'm not sure that I'm being diplomatic as I am. Being more truthful about the progress. And maybe I mean some people I think could say jaded right because you've been on the inside too much that you weren't purist and it's probably true I'm more of let's let's have small improvements and as long as we're making improvements and the goal is up here. I can kind of justify why on a part of the the process sue trump. Okay so let's sort of piecing this all together then now you have this guy who you don't have to walk that type tight rope. We seventeen candidates in the in the primary and Donald Trump really just suck out and so i. I was really excited to work for him. I mean this is a guy who who was very clear in the campaign that that he wanted to treat everybody the same he really did and and so I liked working for him because he was challenging us on the Iraq war implementation. And saying you know I thought it was a disastrous decision. He was critiquing. Bhushan McCain and Romney's positions on the Iraq war in a Republican primary Now everybody around me had said he's done but that was all the Washington type people who were playing by the rules. If you took their rules he would have been done. But the primary is really about the people outside of Washington. And that's where I felt like I was reading the situation better than what they were. Because my sphere wasn't what the Washington crowd was was saying about. He's done and he's not acting like a Republican it was what the Republican base or the people and how they were responding to. Yeah that's an obvious. The Iraq war management didn't go well and so that was an honest assessment of some people. Say touching the third rail of politics of of saying the things. You're not supposed to say but I liked that but rick. I don't understand. Everybody says if you listen to the mainstream media that everyone in the world they don't respect us anymore and they think he's a buffoon and all of these things. Could that possibly be true? I mean that's what the New York Times is telling us. I really joking aside. Like what are you seeing? Now as an ambassador when you go to all the NATO things at all as you go to an all the meetings do you sense like that. People really don't respect us. They used to respect us. They don't we're or we're not the PATSY ANYMORE. Perhaps like what is the real temperature. I think what you're really asking is does his style worker. Does it not work right? Compared to Barack Obama style which is much different. I think we should be honest and say we got two different styles Absolutely Washington rulemaking. We'll tell you that trump style does not work because he doesn't participate in what their rules are but let's look at. Let's look at whether or not his style works. Because I'll take this argument all day long. I don't WANNA BE POLITICAL HERE. But let's just talk facts. Barack Obama was wildly popular in Germany wildly popular. They loved them. Didn't he give that speech? It was before he was president when he was a campaign. Gap Billion People are crazy and he's any maintained. His popularity people loved him but he didn't get any of his signature programs or policies through and I mean that you look at t. tip which was the economic signature program of the Obama Administration. The Germans killed it literally led the fight to kill it Nordstrom. We said don't build it. They went ahead and built it. Jacka polly the Nazi prison. Guard leaving New York City for twelve years the US court said get him out of here. He lied to us. We want him back Germany. The Germans wouldn't take him the entire eight years of the Obama Administration they asked. Will you take this Nazi prison? Guard back they ignore them defense spending. We asked him very nice ways. Can you raise your defense spending? You know we think that you should be a better NATO member. They largely didn't do it. And so all of those issues were were solved under the trump administration. So I've actually said to Chancellor Merkel into the foreign minister and two others in Germany. You're going to have to deal with some tough tweets. You're going to have to deal with some pushing and some ribbing because the only way that we can read this is that the Donald Trump style has worked. Do you think they secretly like it but sort of publicly I? I don't mean Germany specifically but generally that countries and leaders. They have to sort pretend that they don't like trump as they see the. Us SORTA reassert itself and maybe even as he forces them to pay a little bit more actually pay their share in a weird way they almost do like it because it helps give them a little bit of their sovereignty back or or to look for another one hundred percent for sure. I think the public's in Europe liked to have the ability to have their sovereignty back. They they love and President. Trump has said this the chancellor. Merkel blame you for not paying Your Bill. H cheap Russian gas and having sixty nine billion dollar surplus over US and having a surplus and fifty thousand American troops protecting you. I don't blame you. Who wouldn't do that if you were the chancellor of Germany so then he says but now it stops here because you're outsmarted all these other presidents and now I have stick up for my people so if trump is right about all this stuff and now countries are paying more all of these which he is totally right so granted so so so suddenly countries are starting to pay their share. Is He just? Is it? Just what you're saying that it was just the way Washington works than that or is it just that we refused to use any influence on countries? Like that we were just it was just always easier to just be like will pay for everything or you know what I mean like I think at some of it is our own fault. And you're getting. I guess that's what I'm asking that it was just we kept bringing in people that just were always like. Oh we're paying. Why wouldn't we pay? We gotta be Nice. And they're pushing back and we want to be pro-european and and so let's just have a dinner party and you know a lot of parties and sitting in European capitals and really you know we spent. We have all of these people in European capitals working at our embassies. I look I think our embassies should be many commerce sections. You know I've got a whole bunch people at the embassy who are super smart and very committed to the United States and do great public service but I have come to the conclusion that having the whole team of people watching the German political system and reporting back to Washington by writing cables about what's happening in in the governor's Race minister-presidents race in a state in Germany..

Was born in what was then. Poland and what's now Ukraine and this is important, because, this was a long time ago and he's a man not quite without a country but that. No country has wanted to claim because of his involvement in, Nazi concentration camps in World War Two he worked in nineteen forty-three at. A German concentration camp in what was German occupied Poland. Later that same year thousands of. Jewish people were shot to death in. A mass execution at that camp, and, this man is not accused of participating directly in that event but he is accused of persecuting people at that camp.
