The Trillion-Dollar Trump - Putin - Exxon Plot Thickens

120

This pending trillion-dollar oil deal is probably the reason Rex Tillerson was chosen Secretary of State. Install Tillerson, end sanctions on Russia, and cash in. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, and David Sirota, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go

"The “Russian hack news … is delegitimizing,” explained former George W. Bush speech writer David Frum in a recent article. The conservative Frum was famous for authoring Bush’s controversial “axis of evil” speech about the danger posed by Iran, Iraq, and North Korea.

But it appears our democracy and our children have a new axis to worry about: Putin, Trump, and ExxonMobil, whose CEO Rex Tillerson — an extreme Russophile and long-time director of a US-Russian oil company — is Trump’s puzzling choice for Secretary of State.

I say “puzzling” because the long-serving Exxon employee (from age 23!) has no qualifications to be secretary of state — other than a history negotiating major oil deals with countries like Putin’s Russia, which in any sane world would actually disqualify him or at least force a recusal from all State Department dealings with Russia.”*
