Former Trump administration official Richard Grenell slammed a Politico article this week for claiming – without confirming – that he is in the process of putting together a staff for a gubernatorial run in California, according to Grenell’s Twitter. Grenell is one of the key organizers of the ‘Recall Gavin’ petition drive to force California Governor Gavin Newsom out of office over his mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic and the continuing economic crisis in the state.
The publication ran a story claiming Grenell “is interviewing campaign strategists and laying groundwork for a potential run for California governor if the bid to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom goes forward.”
Grenell tweeted saying, “@Politico lies again. Here is the full quote I gave to @davidsiders (which he cut down in order to push a false narrative). I don’t believe you have a source telling you that because it isn’t true and this is the second time Politico has pretended gossip is journalism.”
Moreover, Grenell tweeted the quote he sent Politico.
“I don’t believe you have a source telling you that because it isn’t true and this is the second time Politico has pretended gossip is journalism,” he Tweeted.
It didn’t matter. As of Sunday, the article still claims Grenell is looking to run. All this, based on comments made by an ‘unnamed’ Republican strategist who has allegedly spoken with Grenell about his plans.
Apparently Grenell’s own words don’t outweigh this anonymous strategist.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’
Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.
The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.
The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”
The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.
Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.
“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
UPDATE: The judge granted our motion to compel. CISA has 14 days to comply. https://t.co/2bhwQQJTG6
