Rubio: It's no coincidence that Syria gas attack happened after 'concerning' Tillerson comments

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said Wednesday that he doesn't think it's a coincidence that a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria occurred shortly after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson suggested Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad could remain in power.

"In this case now, we have very limited options and look, it's concerning that the secretary of state, 72 hours ago or a week ago, last Friday, said that the future's up to the people in Syria on what happens with Assad. In essence almost nodding to the idea that Assad was gonna get to stay in some capacity," Rubio said on the show "AM Tampa Bay."

"I don't think it's a coincidence that a few days later we see this," Rubio concluded.



With pressure from the GOP Russia hawks like this, plus Tillerson unable to consummate the $1T Exxon oil deal with Putin because of the Trump Russia scandal, Tillerson may be following Flynn out the door.

"Understand this: there IS NO large scale business in Russia that's independent of the Putin regime"

That is what Vladimir Kara-Murza just said on Ali Veldhi on MSNBC. Kara-Murza, who Putin tried to kill twice by poisoning, knows what he is talking about.

All this talk of "unwitting" Russian recruits like Carter Page disregards that overarching fact. ALL Russian oligarchs are part of Putin's klepticratic crime family. Those who aren't end up dead or in jail. If you're talking to a Russian oligarch, you're talking to Putin.
