Schiff: ‘I Have Deep Concerns’ About Tillerson and ‘Profound Questions’ About Trump’s Russia Policy

‘I also have severe questions about whether he can put the business interests aside of the company that he long ran’

RUSH EXCERPT:

SCHIFF: “Well, I have deep concerns about this candidate for secretary of state. I think his pro-Russian views, and this is somebody who received the order of friendship from Putin himself, caused me great consternation. I also have severe questions about whether he can put the business interests aside of the company that he long ran. He did not, I think, give very convincing answers as to whether he would be tough on sanctions on Russia, so, there are a lot of profound questions, you know, I think he will do his best to implement President Trump’s policies, but the Russian interests are not aligned with ours, and the president, when he was a candidate, talked about how the Russians were attacking ISIS in Syria, in fact, the Russians have been attacking the opposition, been doing very little about ISIS, as, in fact, the president’s own nominee for CIA director has said, so, a lot of profound questions about what the trump policy will really be here and I would put no trust in Russia whatsoever.”
