[Ed. – Politico seems to have doubled down after the Trump campaign also refuted the story. Really peculiar. It’s as if Politico is trying to insist on an alternate “reality.”]
Politico ran a story claiming that Grenell was aiding President Trump’s re-election team, specifically in “fundraising and strategy.” The reporting was cited by “two people familiar with the matter.”
However, after the story was published, Grenell flatly denied Politico’s reporting.
“Fake news. Do you even check before writing? What has happened to Washington DC media?!” Grenell reacted to a now-deleted tweet from the Politico reporter who had shared the story. …
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale also slammed Politico’s report.
