Serious Concerns Rasied Over Trump’s Selection Of Tillerson for Secretary Of State

Senator John McCain, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, has raised concerns abort Tillerson’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin While Republican senator Marco Rubio stated that while Rex Tillerson is a respected businessman, he has serious concerns about his nomination.

Senator Bob Corker called Tillerson “a very impressive individual” and said the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a hearing on his nomination in early January. His statement indicated the hearing would be held before Trump’s inauguration on January 20.

Amnesty International said the nomination was “deeply concerning.”

“We know that Tillerson has been successful in safeguarding the interests of a massive oil company – will he be as invested in safeguarding human rights abroad?” Eric Ferrero, director of communications for Amnesty International USA said in a statement. “The U.S. must have a Secretary of State that will hold all countries accountable for human rights violations – even countries that have profited from his business.”
