White House Fires State Dept. Official Who Contradicted Tillerson Firing Account

Rex Tillerson

"You have to have the human magnetism and charisma to engage in effective diplomacy and State Department craft ... but Mike Pompeo has absolutely no charisma, no honesty, no character", Scott Bennett told Press TV.

The letter was sent to current CIA director Mike Pompeo, who has been nominated to become Trump's secretary of state, and Haspel, who serves as the agency's deputy director.

"Everything that we have seen and heard so far is that the Saudis and Emiratis are dug in and not particularly inclined to reach an accommodation", said Feierstein, a former ambassador to Yemen and deputy to former Secretary of State John Kerry in the Obama administration. Bob MenendezRobert (Bob) MenendezJustice Dept intends to re-try Menendez in corruption case DACA is neither bipartisan nor in America's interest Senate DACA deal picks up GOP supporters MORE (D-N.J) asked Tillerson whether he and the president-elect had discussed the relationship between the U.S. and Russia.

Tajik says the US pulling out of the two-year accord is not the end for it and the destiny of the pact could be in Iran's hands.

"I'm perplexed by the nomination of people who love the Iraq War so much that they would advocate for a war with Iran next", Paul said of Pompeo, according to Politico.

During Tillerson's time in office, 60 percent of the State Departments' top-ranking career diplomats left the agency, and new applications to join the foreign service fell by half, according to data from the American Foreign Service Association. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who had spent months being dogged by rumors of his ever-imminent demise, finally got the axe.

"I will oppose both Pompeo's nomination and Haspel's nomination", Paul said on Wednesday. He was poisoned with an exotic chemical in a fashion plainly meant to draw maximum attention and make Russian responsibility clear, in order to send a deterrent message to anyone who might be thinking of crossing Putin.

Environmental groups, such as the grassroots climate change activists 350.org, have expressed concerns about both his perceived lack of belief in the science of the issue and his ties to the Republican megadonor Koch brothers. Video tapes of the interrogations were then ordered destroyed by her boss, Jose Rodriguez, director of operations for counterterrorism at the CIA. Having already been confirmed by lawmakers as CIA director, there is no reason to think he won't be given a stamp of approval.

"This is definitely not good news for Sino-US relations", Zhang Zhexin, a research fellow at the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies told The South China Morning Post. Many in Washington doubt the meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un will take place in May, as planned.

Trump said that he and Pompeo "have a very similar thought process" on the deal. "Any nominee for director of the CIA must pledge without reservation to uphold this prohibition". She ought not be in the director's office at the CIA.

In October 2017, Trump finally decertified the Iran deal, which effectively opened the door for the U.S. Congress to reimpose sanctions.

I believe Israel would then feel justified in taking military action against Iran, which has been threatening its national security for decades.

After Trump named Pompeo as Tillerson's replacement, Mark Dubowitz, head of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, tweeted that Pompeo is "Exhibit A" of Trump's seriousness about walking away from the deal if there is no agreement to amend it.

"It certainly is interesting that [Tuesday's] decision came a week before Mohammed bin Salman lands on our doorstep", Feierstein said. That could egg on President Donald Trump's administration to behave in a more hawkish manner, especially regarding Iran and tensions on the Korean Peninsula, the experts said.

She was never confirmed, however, thanks to Cotton's efforts to block her nomination.
