Tillerson out, CIA’s Pompeo in at State Dept

Trump ousts Tillerson, will replace him as secretary of state with CIA chief Pompeo - The Washington Post

Quote:
President Trump has ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and plans to nominate CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace him as the nation’s top diplomat, orchestrating a major change to his national security team amid delicate negotiations with North Korea, White House officials said Tuesday.

Trump last Friday asked Tillerson to step aside, and the embattled diplomat cut short his trip to Africa on Monday to return to Washington.

Pompeo will replace him at the State Department, and Gina Haspel — the deputy director at the CIA — will succeed him at the CIA, becoming the first woman to run the spy agency, if confirmed.

Because we all know step 1 when dealing with a major foreign policy thing like N Korea is to change your team at the last minute.

Not that Tillerson was right for the job. Just that this would be a problem no matter who was in there.

He was asked, but no one noticed he wasn't in the room at the time.

As a matter of fact, look at how far-fetched the fake news was when it was called out -

Getting Pompeo out of the CIA is a bonus for him too. I mean the guy actually said the Russians were meddling in US elections. The nerve!

Or they wrote him a letter saying such and did not give it to him?

Donald Trump has fired Steve Goldstein, the State Department official who challenged his account of firing Rex Tillerson.

The latest dismissal came in the midst of chaos in the White House after the President decided he would sack Mr Tillerson, who had served as his Secretary of State.

Following that firing, Under Secretary of State Steve Goldstein released a statement that appeared to contradict Mr Trump's account of the sacking. In it, he said that Mr Tillerson hadn't heard about being fired until the President sent a tweet announcing it.

[....]

Now Mr Goldstein himself has been fired, apparently as a result of that statement, according to NBC.

He was reportedly called up by the White House after Mr Tillerson's firing Tuesday and told that his services would no longer be needed.

Remember folks, he is a stable genius. So stable. The chaos in his administration surely must be caused by some outside force, likely those godless, unamerican democrats.

There's this news that came out about 2 weeks ago.

Exxon Mobil withdraws from Russia deal citing sanctions
https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...=.c9ae283f7eb6

Tillerson was Trump's man to negotiate that oil deal if and when the sanctions were lifted. Didn't happen, Exxon withdrew, Tillerson wasn't needed anymore.

Also, Friday Tillerson stated that the Russia sanctions will remain in place until Moscow reverses the actions it has taken in the Ukraine.

I swear, Trump is running the White House like a season of Appretice! I have never seen such a revolving door in a sitting president's cabinet before.
