Halie Soifer, the CEO of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, smeared former U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell in a tweet on Tuesday after it was announced the Trump administration appointed him to the Holocaust Memorial Council.

Soifer claimed in her tweet that "Grenell sought to 'empower' far-right parties & anti-establishment conservatives in Europe. Others have been unqualified, but he's emboldened actual neo-Nazis."

Users on Twitter were quick to point out there is no evidence of Grenell having "emboldened neo-Nazis" while he was serving as an ambassador. Instead, they showed examples of how Grenell did the exact opposite.

Grenell also called out Soifer's baseless claim.
