Rex Tillerson just met in secret with the House Foreign Affairs Committee to talk about his time with Trump

Published

on

Former Trump Secretary of State Rex Tillerson just met in secret with leaders and staff on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The subject was President Donald Trump, according to an exclusive report at The Daily Beast.

“Tillerson’s arrival at the Capitol was handled with extreme secrecy,” The Daily Beast’s Erin Banco reports. “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.”

During his tenure Tillerson called President Trump a “moron,” and repeatedly refused to deny he had done so.

After Trump’s infamous “both sides” remarks defending neo-Nazis who attended the Charlottesville rally, Tillerson said that the State Department represents America’s values, and the President of the United States speaks for himself.

Tillerson has said he spent a lot of time with President Trump, yet he has been surprisingly absent from the administration’s Mueller controversies. Trump fired Tillerson on March 31, 2018, but didn’t tell him directly. The former Secretary of State learned he was unemployed via Twitter.

In May of 2018 Tillerson took a “thinly-veiled shot” at Trump, as the AP reported.

“If we do not as Americans confront the crisis of ethics and integrity in our society among our leaders in both public and private sector … then American democracy as we know it is entering its twilight years,” he told graduates of the Virginia Military Institute in a commencement speech.

‘Left wing hack’: Fox News fans lose it after anchor calls Ukraine allegations ‘a problem’ for Trump

Published

on

Fox News viewers lashed out at the network on Sunday after host Arthel Neville grilled New York Congressman Peter King (R) about President Donald Trump's alleged effort to get Ukraine to help him defeat Joe Biden.

Neville twice asked King about Trump's Ukraine scandal, and both times he evaded the question by saying that Congress does not have a right to know the details of Trump's conversations with foreign leaders.

On her third attempt, Neville got to the point by noting Trump's alleged actions are "a problem."

"We don’t know that it’s true, we hope it’s not true," the Fox News host said of the allegations against Trump. "But if there is a possibility that our president used his office to put pressure on a foreign government -- president-elect -- to dig into his possible, potential political opponent, then that’s a problem."

New York Times battered on MSNBC for pushing smear of Hunter Biden in order to maintain access to Trump

Published

on

An "AM Joy" panel jumped all over the New York Times for pushing a widely debunked smear of Hunter Biden promoted by Donald Trump, saying the newspaper is more interested in maintaining their access to the Oval Office than debunking the lie.

Speaking with host Joy Reid -- who noted that her producers asked for comment from the Times but were rebuffed -- MSNBC regular Maria Teresa Kumar scorched the Times, as well as reporter Ken Vogel, for the uncritical parroting of the president's smear.

Ukrainian journalist throws down gauntlet after Giuliani smear: ‘I express my readiness to testify’

Published

on

A Ukrainian journalist said on Sunday that he would be willing to testify to Congress against President Donald Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani.

After Giuliani unleashed a bizarre rant on CNN accusing Democrats of trying to get help from Ukraine in the 2016 election, Ukrainian journalist Serhiy Leshchenko wrote an op-ed exposing the accusation as a lie.

In his op-ed, Leshchenko explains:

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the Manafort revelations would become fodder for the U.S. elections in 2020. President Trump’s lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, the mouthpiece of this campaign, is not only attempting to rehabilitate Manafort but is also working to undermine U.S. relations with Ukraine, which has been confronting Russian aggression on its own for more than five years. Giuliani and his associates are trying to drag our newly elected president, Volodymyr Zelensky, into a conflict between two foreign political parties, drastically limiting Ukraine’s room for maneuver in respect to the United States, perhaps its most important international partner.
