We Agree with Senator McCain on Tillerson (Not A Joke)

Earlier today, Senator John McCain was asked if he’d support Rex Tillerson’s nomination as Secretary of State and replied, “Sure. There's also a realistic scenario that pigs fly." In response, Arizona Communications Director Enrique Gutierrez released the following statement:

“For once, we agree with Senator McCain. Rex Tillerson simply cannot be our next Secretary of State. His ties to Russia are incredibly troubling – particularly because we now know that Putin personally directed ‘how hacked material from Democrats was leaked and otherwise used’ --  and people on both sides of the aisle agree.”

“In short, what we need is not a Putin-puppet in the Cabinet – what we need is for Congress to launch a full, independent investigation as soon as possible.”
