President Donald Trump recently said that former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell will join his administration “at a high level” now that John Ratcliffe has replaced him.
“Give him a breather, and I’d love to have him back,” Trump told The Daily Caller on Friday.
Grenell, the former U.S. ambassador to Germany who replaced retired Navy Vice Adm. Joseph Maguire as interim director of national intelligence last February, will “come back in some form, at a high level,” according to Trump.
“He was fantastic, the job he did,” the president added. “He did a fantastic job. So, I believe that justice will be served. I hope that justice will be served, and I believe justice will be served.”
Grenell remains in the Trump administration, serving as special presidential envoy for Serbia and Kosovo peace negotiations. He has also been named a senior fellow at Carnegie Mellon University's Institute for Politics and Strategy.
"The offices of the Institute for Politics and Strategy in Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C. have a proven track record for convening leaders throughout the world for research, teaching and discussion on some of the most pressing global problems," Grenell said in a statement. "It is an honor to join Professor Kiron Skinner and her IPS colleagues to help develop projects concentrating on the new Europe and the global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality."
