White House Plans Tillerson Ouster From State Dept., to Be Replaced by Pompeo, Within Weeks

This wouldn’t be surprising at all if it does happen. Trump is still fuming about Tillerson calling him a fucking moron and has been looking for a way to get rid of him for some time. But Cotton at the head of the CIA???

WASHINGTON — The White House has developed a plan to force out Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson, whose relationship with President Trump has been strained, and replace him with Mike Pompeo, the C.I.A. director, perhaps within the next several weeks, senior administration officials said on Thursday.

Mr. Pompeo would be replaced at the C.I.A. by Senator Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas who has been a key ally of the president on national security matters, according to the White House plan.
