Tillerson ouster may hasten demise of Iran nuclear deal

Kansas governor local politicians react to Pompeo nomination

Tillerson was also thought to have made a major concession to China when he publicly repeated Beijing's rhetoric about the Sino-US relationship during his first trip to the country.

The Republican senator Rand Paul said on Wednesday he would oppose Donald Trump's nomination of Gina Haspel for director of the CIA, accusing her of having shown "joyful glee" during the torture of terrorism suspects.

"People complain sometimes about the filibuster; they complain about trying to obstruct".

"As a 30-year professional in the CIA, I have much more comfort in that than putting someone in who is a politician", he said.

He confuses real-life governing with being the star of his own reality TV show where he can just say "you're fired!".

When Haspel was appointed to deputy CIA director, she received praise from former CIA Director Michael Hayden and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who touted her "broad-gauged" experience.

Mr Tillerson represented the globalist wing in the Trump administration, taming the president's protectionist and isolationist instincts, but he appeared unable to maintain a bond with his boss.

"There's a lot of speculation", Shah said.

He's been a bully and a blowhard all his life because he owned the company. There are no personnel announcements. Feinstein chaired the Senate Intelligence Committee when it produced a massive 2014 report describing the CIA's harsh detention and interrogation programs.

This is not some kind of controversial opinion; indeed, the idea that Russia wasn't behind Skripal's attempted murder is simply laughable on its face.

The top US diplomat's team said he felt unwell on Saturday and decided to cut short his tour by a day. "He wants to make sure that he's got their confidence, and he's comfortable with him".

While Pruitt's confirmation process could be brutal - and uncertain - he could be named acting attorney general.

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, is waiting in the wings to replace McMaster. Trump chose Sessions instead, a decision the President regrets, a senior White House official said.

"Although it's difficult, the nuclear deal could be maintained even without the US", he said.

Wilhelm II, who 14 year later began the World War I, and Trump do seem to share certain qualities, including petulance and a strong narcissistic streak.

"I would be surprised, disappointed and concerned" if Sessions were fired, Sen. It's going to move. It's a tough time right now to confirm somebody in a job like that. Seriously, you think we can have discussions with other countries if we're advocating for regime change? Tillerson, who was traveling in Africa, had told reporters just a day earlier that the U.S. was "a long ways from negotiations" with Pyongyang.

US investors however shrugged off news of Mr Tillerson's ouster as Wall Street's main indices rose early on Tuesday as fears of faster interest rate hikes eased after tepid consumer prices data.

The UN's nuclear energy agency, the IAEA, confirmed in February that Tehran had met its obligations under the agreement.

Immigration policy remains largely deadlocked, but Mr Trump is unquestionably setting the tone and agenda. "But I would think it wouldn't be wise to fire Sessions".

Mr Pompeo is a hardline conservative former lawmaker from Kansas and a Trump loyalist.
