Three firings today so far now.
From the NY Times:
Ms. Haspel, who has spent most of her career undercover, would certainly fall within Mr. Pompeo’s description. She played a direct role in the C.I.A.’s “extraordinary rendition program,” under which captured militants were handed to foreign governments and held at secret facilities, where they were tortured by agency personnel.
The media has been speculating that I fired Rex Tillerson or that he would be leaving soon – FAKE NEWS! He’s not leaving and while we disagree on certain subjects, (I call the final shots) we work well together and America is highly respected again!https://t.co/FrqiPLFJ1E

His days were numbered since he called Trump a fucking moron. But I guess he found out about this from Trump’s tweet?
CNN is now reporting that Tillerson definitively learned he had been fired from this tweet. https://t.co/rFQYi57mH9
