Via press release:
Former Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, is joining The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). Grenell will serve as Special Advisor for National Security and Foreign Policy.
“Acting Director Grenell will be joining the ACLJ as of today, and will be appearing regularly on Jay Sekulow Live, which airs each weekday at Noon Eastern,” says ACLJ Executive Director, Jordan Sekulow. “He brings his broad foreign policy, national security, intelligence and political experience to this new role and we are honored to have him on the team.”
Grenell was a member of President Donald J. Trump’s Cabinet, advising the President directly and regularly while serving as Acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) in 2020.
Previously, Grenell served as the U.S. Ambassador to Germany from 2018 to 2020, and as a U.S. State Department spokesperson to the United Nations under four different U.S. ambassadors during the George W. Bush administration.
The ACLJ, whose name is meant to mock the ACLU, was founded by Pat Robertson and is run by Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow.
The ACLJ has been investigated for funneling tens of millions in donor money to Sekulow family members.
Sekulow is the author of a book that warns against the “sordid gay lifestyle” and he testified before Congress in support of a proposed federal ban on same-sex marriage.
