President Trump is expected to name Ambassador Richard Grenell as Acting Head of Intelligence.
Grenell is currently the US Ambassador to Germany.
This move would shake up the rogue intelligence agencies who are notoriously anti-Trump.

Donald Trump Jr. already gave the ambassador a shout-out on his promotion — so it must be in the works.
An amazing choice!!! @realDonaldTrump deserves someone he can trust and someone who knows how to get things done in this position.
Congrats @RichardGrenell go get em. https://t.co/KAKUhYElDj
