I wonder if this is an “impeachable offense” ?

The question is who is Gina Haskell and will she drain the swamp?

When your president sends you on a diplomatic mission to a world-class shithole (Kenya), you know you are a short-timer.

Tillerson is from a town in Texas very close to where my grandfather was from. He reminds me so much of him — a true gentleman.

I thought he was a great choice for SoS, and I’ll be sad to see him go. Unfortunately this shakeup won’t be a good look for POTUS, even if Pompeo ends up doing a good job.

Pompeo obviously thinks so and now so does Trump.

Wikipedia already updated her profile.

As I recall, it was a woman that did the work to get Bin Laden killed.

Rex was a true believer in man made global warming. If you can beleive that BS you can beleive anything.

He was Condi’s boy—and a true Establishment globalist.

Does this give Kushner, with his own significant international portfolio, a boost in the admin?

I just don't think Tillerson and Trump got along. I know, I know, for months any discord between the two has been labeled “fake news” but there was enough there for most to understand they had different visions of the world. When Trump excluded Tillerson in the North Korea announcement, I knew Tillerson was done.

Apparently Haskell came on the scene when she was put in charge of a “black site” prison in Thailand in 2002 by W. This should be interesting.

Haspel was promoted by Brennan during the Obama years. Not a good sign.

Notice, no Senate confirmations needed.
Who will Trump replace Sessions with?
