We reported earlier on news at The Hill that there would be a change at the White House in the New Year…Many different outlets have reported that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will be out in January. He’ll be replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo. The White House is avoiding any confirmation of this move but publications on both sides of the aisle are confirming that this move will happen in 2018. The best thing about this report is that Senator Tom Cotton aka as the ‘Trump Whisperer’ will be the CIA Director…
Biz Pac Review reports:
Senator Cotton is widely respected in conservative circles. A New Yorker article once asked if he was “The future of Trumpism?”, pointing to the “influence” he exercised behind the scenes in the early days of the Trump administration. He has also acquired the nickname “the Trump whisperer.”
Not only is Cotton a decorated veteran of the Iraq War, he is also a Harvard law graduate. Cotton has been described as a “realist” when it comes to foreign policy, and “hawkish” on military affairs. His stance against a potential nuclear weapon armed Iran, in particular, has earned him the reputation as a “hard liner.”
Axios, the start-up website of former Politico insiders Mike Allen and Jim Vandehei, echoed the New York Times assessment that Cotton could take over at the CIA. As reported:
Cotton is one of the few senators with an easy relationship with Trump, talking to him a few times a week, giving him advice about top jobs (that Trump has taken), and planting the seed for the Iran policy announced Friday.
Senator Cotton recently grabbed headlines for supporting the Trump administration’s CFPB director appointment, stating that the employee at the “rogue agency” attempting to block Mulvaney from taking over should be “fired summarily.” Via: BPR
