Free Beacon reports:
U.S. officials are increasingly alarmed by a congressional block on President Donald Trump’s pick to be the next ambassador to Germany, a holdup that comes as Berlin pursues a host of anti-Israel measures and is growing closer to Iran, according to multiple administration insiders who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.
As Democrats in Congress continue to hold the nomination of Richard Grenell, a veteran Republican diplomat who was tapped by Trump to serve as the next U.S. ambassador to Germany, the post remains vacant, sparking concerns the United States is ceding leverage amid sensitive discussions regarding the future of the landmark Iran nuclear deal.
The vacancy also has left the United States with little voice to combat a series of anti-Israel efforts being pursued by the German government. Trump administration insiders are becoming increasingly fed-up with the block on Grenell, telling the Free Beacon that U.S. diplomats currently helming the post have been bungling critical national security priorities, including the Iran portfolio and recent efforts by Germany to sell Tehran sensitive equipment used by the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria to produce chemical weapons.
Alarmed by the report, Trump supporters have set out to get #ConfirmGrenell trending on Twitter.
Jack Posobiec, independent journalist and author of the book ‘Citizens for Trump‘ kicked things off.
“Let’s not forget that Jake Tapper spread fake news that @RichardGrenell may be a secret Russian agent,” Posobiec added.
“POTUS has repeatedly called for the senate to confirm @RichardGrenell. What are you waiting for @SenateMajLdr? Call a vote; force @SenSchumer & @TheDemocrats to defend the indefensible,” GOP insider Arthur Schwartz tweeted.

“As Democrats in Congress continue to hold up the nomination of @RichardGrenell (nominated in September of last year) the United States is ceding leverage amid discussions regarding the future of the Iran nuclear deal,” Nick Short of Security Studies Group tweeted.

“Schumer is blocking nominees indiscriminately. He forces time-wasting procedural votes on nominees and then eventually votes in support of them,” Daily Caller contributor Kambree Kawahine Koa tweeted.

Social media powerhouses Mary and Bradford File called on Congress to quit messing around and #ConfirmGrenell.
James Brower of New Right US asked, “Why has this honorable man not been confirmed yet? What are the actual reasons? There are none.”
After a year in office, half of President Trump’s nominees are still waiting for confirmation in the US Senate.
Mitch McConnell can vote anytime on the nominees. But Mitch won’t do it because he is required to use 30 hours of floor debate to force a vote.
As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft recently reported, Sarah Huckabee Sanders highlighted Richard Grenell who is the Trump nominee for Ambassador to Germany. Grenell has been waiting for months for his confirmation by the Senate.
We need all conservatives to start pressuring Mitch McConnell to do his job. The White House just said “confirm Ric”. What is Mitch waiting for?
He can call the vote anytime. He doesn’t do it because he is required to use 30 hrs of floor debate In order to force a vote. But he should do it.
