The Rex Tillerson Story Is Full of Holes.

Was it his health? His feud with Trump? Did he find out Friday or today?

'If there were anyone still working at the State Department, it would have been interesting to get their reactions to the sudden departure of Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State less than 48 hours after he said the following in response to the apparent poisoning of a Russian spy and his daughter in Great Britain. From The Standard:

“There is never a justification for this type of attack, the attempted murder of a private citizen on the soil of a sovereign nation, and we are outraged that Russia appears to have again engaged in such behavior. . ."

If you awoke to the news from The Washington Post that Tillerson was out as SOS, and that he will be replaced by CIA director Mike Pompeo, and your first reaction wasn’t to connect Tillerson’s departure to these remarks, you should go back to bed for a couple of hours. Remember that, on Monday, the day that Tillerson allied himself with British Prime Minister Theresa May and with common sense in pinning this deadly caper on Russia, official White House spokesdrone Sarah Huckabee Sanders gargled a whole bunch of banalities in her press briefing without ever once mentioning Russia.'>>>

2. Tillerson rushed back to the US from Africa yesterday ahead of schedule.

So this was going on yesterday at least.

Tillerson flew to Nigeria after Chad for a stay of just a few hours, less than the overnight visit originally planned. His entourage said he had been forced to cut short the African tour on Monday to return to deal with urgent work in Washington.

3. And now

Another Russian found dead in England, it is thought he has marks on his neck, could be strangulation. Also he is a friend of the other russian who was poisoned by the nerve gas.
