Told me this week

FOUND ONLINE: “There’s enough truth to it to compel some self-reflection,” Wolfson, who was the communications director for Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid in 2008, told me this week.

I've posted on this before; I hate splitting attribution. I know the writer wants to get "told me this week" in there, but it's an awkward construction.
