Rex Tillerson, in Meeting With U.S. Diplomats, Says Russia ‘Interfered’ in Election

Beleaguered Secretary of State Rex Tillerson acknowledged in a closed-door meeting with U.S. diplomats on Tuesday that Russia “interfered in democratic processes here,” something President Trump still describes as “fake news” intended to delegitimize his presidency.

It’s a precarious position for Tillerson to take, even privately. Tillerson’s job is on thin ice, as rumors swirl that he will be swapped out for CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Within the department, Tillerson’s support is wafer-thin, as diplomats have come to see his purpose as hollowing out U.S. diplomacy.

Publicly, Tillerson has been a bit more circumspect about the Kremlin question. In April, Tillerson called the “question of Russian interference” in the election something that was “fairly well-established.” In August, Tillerson told his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, that the election meddling engendered “serious mistrust between our two countries.”

Pompeo, the guy who was on 8+ investigations into Benghazi and found nothing, later made director CIA, might become SecState...drain the swamp indeed. XD Who needs competence when you have croneyism?

I wonder what the pro trump crowd is going to do now that bannon is also tearing down trump.

"Mentality of an eleven year old" is how he describes trump. If your idol is what most people describe as a moron or an idiot it's probably time to reassess your beliefs.
