Tillerson quietly meets with House lawmakers to discuss Trump

Source: CNN

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson quietly met with the top Democrat and Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee Tuesday for an interview that focused primarily on his time in the Trump administration, a congressional aide with direct knowledge of the discussion confirmed to CNN.

Tillerson traveled to Capitol Hill where he sat down with the committee's Democratic chairman Rep. Eliot Engel and ranking Republican Rep. Michael McCaul, the aide said, declining to provide additional details about the meeting itself other than the fact that it centered around the former top diplomat's time at the State Department.

What is clear, however, is that Tillerson's trip to Capitol Hill came as a surprise to many in Washington, including to some members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Several members of the House panel did not know about the interview until after it was first reported by The Daily Beast, according to a Republican lawmaker and an aide to a Democrat on the committee.

I wonder if Trump wishes or will wish he hadn't fired Tillerson?

3. These committees

need to do this more often. Keep it quiet until after it happens or right before. This way Trump canít stop them from meeting with these committees.

4. You'll know when we reach that apocolypse when trumph declares

executive privilege on everything.

And if that doesn't work, tries a national emergency.

And finally gets us into a missile flinging war and takes refuge in his home country - the USSR.

5. That won't take long.

"He's a fucking moron". I think those were his exact words, if I'm not mistaken.

7. We shouldn't mistake Tillerson for some kind of "Secret Santa"

He's not a good guy, he's just as evil as Chump. But he's definitely smarter, probably richer, and he's got his own Russia-Putin scandals to hide.
