President Trump has named Richard Grenell, the current ambassador to Germany, as acting Director of National Intelligence. This comes as reports surfaced on Thursday that senior intelligence officials told Congress that Russia wants to see President Trump re-elected. Trump worried that could be used against him politically leading up to November’s election.
