When it began there was push back to Pres. Trump’s nominee for State, Tillerson. The leaders of the “opposition” were Sens. McCain and Graham….very vocal and defiant toward the appointee….
With all the chest thumping I said that it might be just theatrics like so much else done or said by senators…..
Appears I called this one also……
Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain will support Rex Tillerson as secretary of state in a move that all but clinches his nomination, reports Politico. Graham confirmed his position on CBS’ Face the Nation and in a joint statement with McCain; Marco Rubio still hasn’t decided, but McCain and Graham make that all but irrelevant. “Though we still have concerns about his past dealings with the Russian government and President Vladimir Putin, we believe that Mr. Tillerson can be an effective advocate for US interests,” they said in a joint statement. McCain says the decision “wasn’t an easy call” but he says Tillerson assuaged worries about Russia in private meetings. McCain says he also believes in giving incoming presidents “the benefit of the doubt” on their picks.
Typical political games that runs rampant in Washington…..AH the games played in the name of governing….
