WATCH: Rex Tillerson Won’t Say Vladimir Putin is a War Criminal

During his confirmation hearing this morning, Rex Tillerson, Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, faced tough questions from Florida Senator Marco Rubio, and Tillerson refused to say that Vladimir Putin is a war criminal.

Senator Rubio first asked Tillerson about Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Tillerson said that the report on Russian hacking is “clearly troubling” and that it’s a “fair assumption” that Putin would have been involved if these actions occurred.

Rubio then asked Tillerson if Vladimir Putin is a war criminal. Tillerson responded, “I would not use that term.”

Rubio proceeded to describe the situation in Aleppo, Syria, including the bombings of hospitals and killing of thousands of civilians. Tillerson still said the he would want to have “much more information” before saying whether Putin committed war crimes. Rubio said that he finds this answer “discouraging.”

The Florida senator also entered into the record a list of journalists and political opponents of Putin’s who were killed under suspicious circumstances.

“Are you aware that people who oppose Vladimir Putin wind up dead all over the world…?” Rubio asked.

Tillerson said that he would need more information before blaming this on Putin.

“None of this is classified, Mr. Tillerson,” Rubio responded. “These people are dead.”

A few minutes later, Tillerson said that he and Donald Trump have not discussed U.S. policy towards Russia. Senator Bob Menendez responded to this by saying, “That’s pretty amazing.”

War criminal !

The Democratic party that is backed by the Muslim Brotherhood and the Obama Administration setting the Middle East on fire !

The Benghazi arms deal that went bad. Giving a billion dollars in cash to our enemy.

Allowing cop killers into the White House !

Nothing to see here folks,Move Along ! Move Along !

It’s a good thing ,that these things are not war crimes ?

Or how about this cute little thing.
Having your eight-year-old little girl in the bathroom with a pedophile and being sodomized in the bathroom stall.

You can thank the Muslim King Obama for that.

I am almost positive the Secret Service will not allows Obama’s children in the bathroom with pedophiles.

But it’s okay for our children to be sodomized in a bathroom stall by a pedophile.

Thank you President Obama and your Administration.

The Muslim Brotherhood said they would attack the United States from within !

I guess they were right they have been attacking us from within.

All hail the Muslim King Obama !
