Rex Tillerson secretely meets with House Foreign

Affairs Committee to talk Trump

Former secretary of state Rex Tillerson spoke with the leaders of the House Foreign Affairs committee on Tuesday in a lengthy session that, an aide said, touched on his time working in the Trump administration, the frictions he had with the presidentís son-in-law, and efforts to tackle issues like Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Tillersonís appearance, first reported by The Daily Beast, took place as virtually every other Trumpworld luminary has been stonewalling congressional oversight efforts. At the same time the former secretary of state was speaking before lawmakers, former White House counsel Don McGahn was ignoring a subpoena to testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee.

Tillersonís arrival at the Capitol was handled with extreme secrecy. No media advisories or press releases were sent out announcing his appearance. And he took a little-noticed route into the building in order to avoid being seen by members of the media.

Tillerson reached out to the committee and expressed a willingness to meet, a committee aide said. In a more than six-hour meeting, he told members and staffers that the Trump administration actively avoided confronting Russia about allegations of interference in the election in an effort to develop a solid relationship with the Kremlin, a committee aide told The Daily Beast.


Donny is not going to be happy.

2. One minute you're the CEO of a multi billion dollar corporation...

The next, you're fired by a guy who used to sell steaks in the mail.

3. Wow. Who would have thought that

an oil company exec and former chump cabinet member would have any integrity left? Pardon me if I want to know his answers before praising him to the skies.

4. I used to think

he was a Russian asset (Putie award and all). In fact I was convinced.
Now I see he was just probably a unwitting asset. Or maybe he just saw the light.
Either way, kudos for having courage, unlike everyone who has refused to appear to the House
and has defied subpoenas.
