Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was spotted entering a congressional office building on Tuesday morning for what a committee aide told The Daily Beast was a meeting with the leaders of the House Foreign Affairs committee and relevant staff about his time working in the Trump administration.
Tillerson’s appearance took place as virtually every other Trumpworld luminary has been stonewalling congressional oversight efforts. At the same time that 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.
Tillerson’s 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.

just because you're paranoid doesn't mean your former aides aren't meeting secretly with your political foes to talk trash about you. Wonder why Tillerson would do this? Hmmmmm......

(CNN)President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he has fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and will nominate CIA Director Mike Pompeo to succeed him, replacing his top diplomat ahead of a potential high-stakes sitdown between the US President and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Tillerson's departure follows months of tension between him and Trump. Gina Haspel, the current CIA deputy director, stands to take over the agency, Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said he respected Tillerson's "intellect" and said he "got along well with Rex."
"I think Rex will be much happier now," Trump said.

Tillerson thanked the American people, his State Department staff and the nation's extensive network of diplomats in his farewell statement on Tuesday.
One person he did not thank: Trump, the man who nominated him for the job but abruptly told the world of his ouster in a tweet on Tuesday morning.
The only mention of Trump came at the top of the statement when Tillerson mentioned that the President called him "a little after noontime from Air Force One" to talk about his ouster. That call came hours after Trump told the world Tillerson was fired on Twitter

And not one word from the Media. Wonder how many others who quit because they refused to do Trump’s dirt work? Jim Mattis comes to mind.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw is objecting to Trump’s pardon plans of Military murderers. In slow motion the Dominoes are going down.

Anyone see Lindsey Graham yesterday? He could not meet the Reporters eyes, kept them down. His bluster was gone.

Rex Tillerson takes an apparent parting shot at Trump

March 22, 2018


Tillson's final public message as secretary of state was essentially this: Don't be like Trump.

At the very end of his farewell speech to the State Department on Thursday, Tillerson talked about the importance of maintaining your integrity and having respect for others.

“This can be a very mean-spirited town, but you don't have to choose to participate in that. Each of us get to choose the person we want to be, and the way we want to be treated, and the way we will treat others.”

John F. Kelly has drawn plenty of criticism for disclosing :

In a closed-door meeting last week, White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly told staffers that Tillerson received the news of his impending exit while using the toilet.

Tillerson's meeting with the House panel did "trigger" DJT this a.m. HE just couldn't let this 1 pass by Tillerson. Doesn't DJT understand HIS tweet below also makes HIM look like an idiot when originally choosing the "best people" for HIS cabinet?
:cool:

Putin out-prepared Trump in key meeting, Rex Tillerson told House Panel
