Marco Rubio Lectures Rex Tillerson:
Vladimir Putin Is a War Criminal

Breitbart Big Government, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/11/2017 11:39:08 PM

Sen. Marco Rubio challenged Donald Trump’s pick for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for his views on Vladimir Putin, demanding to know whether he thought the Russian president was a war criminal. “I would not use that term,” Tillerson replied. Rubio listed public reports of Putin-linked bombings and attacks on civilians as well as public reports of civilian dissidents, political opponents and journalists dying under mysterious circumstances. “I would want to have much more information before reaching a conclusion,” Tillerson replied, calling Rubio’s concerns “very serious charges.” Rubio specifically referred to Russia’s actions in Syria, describing Putin’s actions as “war crimes.” “I find it discouraging

Comments:
Tillerson simply said he’d need more reliable facts than what have been disseminated in the public media.

Not since the old days with Plugs Biden have we seen such a hostile, condescending interrogation...

Obviously, he doesn´t see the big picture, or the wrong people are giving him advice, or both.

Here is the problem. The Republicans have a four vote majority n the Senate, and Trump has repeatedly insulted five Republican senators: Jeff Flake, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Little Marco and Lyin´ Ted. Say all you want, but confirmation comes down to math.

Little Marko continues to shrink. He seemed to have so much potential when he first came to the Senate. Then he sold his soul to join the gang of eight.

Regarding the math in the comments, who is to say that Democrats will vote as a block; not ONE or more will stand up for the President elect´s choice ? Not one is a Patriot who will put Country before party in the choice of a S. of S. Do they ALL want to anger the new president even before he takes office? Somehow I think not.

It showed a combination of stupidity/vindictiveness/bitterness in trying to force a prospective Sec. of State into calling a "leader" of a potentially dangerous country a war criminal . . . not very smart !

The Women’s March on Washington, a celebrity-endorsed event planned for the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, is backed by a who’s who of far-left organizations, including scores of groups financed by billionaire George Soros. The march has been described by the news media as a female protest against Trump, with reports that hundreds of thousands might attend.

The Senate is already rolling back President Barack Obama’s legacy. It passed the continuing resolution, S. Con.Res. 3, that tears away the fees, taxes and subsidies from the 201o Patient Protection and Affordable Cart Act, Obamacare, shortly after 1:25 Thursday morning, 51-to-48. All Republicans, except for Sen. Rand Paul (R.-KY), voted for the resolution. Paul criticized the budget resolution for not addressing the federal debt and for not having a companion replacement bill. (Snip) As senators waited for their names to be called by the clerk, Paul approached the clerk’s desk from side and whispered: “No.”

Senator Marco Rubio exited the confirmation hearing for Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State nominee and, important to note – RUSHED TO CNN, to tell media he was “uncertain” and “doubtful” if he’d support Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State. Moments earlier Senator Marco Rubio engaged in the following questioning of T-Rex: (Video)Important to remember, Marco Rubio openly supported John Kerry and voted yes on his confirmation.While I shall never be accused of defending Vladimir Putin, factually, the assertion of who was/is the enemy in Syria -and as a consequence who was/is attacking whom- was/is entirely false.

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

While we learned earlier that John McCain was responsible for handing over the 35-page "dossier" of compromising, if arguably fake, revelations about Trump´s connections to Russia over to the FBI, the identity of the actual creator, who was said to be an ex-British intelligence service, remained a mystery. No longer. Courtesy of the WSJ, we now know his name: the former MI-6 officer, now working for a private security-and-investigations firm "who produced the dossier of unverified allegations about President-elect Donald Trump’s activities and connections in Russia" is Christopher Steele, a director of London-based Orbis Business Intelligence.... and before readers google

President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment." “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.” “It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…” He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen."

Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly also being considered for the position. Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was in

CNN´s exclusive reporting on the Russian matter was separate and distinctly different from the document dump executed by an online news property," Smith said during his closing monologue. "Though we at Fox News cannot confirm CNN´s report, it is our observation that it´s correspondents followed journalistic standards and that neither they nor any other journalists should be subjected to belittling and delegitimizing by the president-elect of the
