JUST IN: Rep. Ted Lieu Threatens Secretary Of State Rex Tillerson: ‘Lawyer Up’


There has been a lot of talk about the roles that members of Donald Trump’s cabinet have played in his alleged illegal collusion with the Russian government. One of the names that has come up repeatedly where connecting the pieces of the Trump-Russia puzzle is concerned, is Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Tillerson’s tenure with Exxon Mobil has led to Donald Trump making comments and business decisions that not only allow Russian investors to have a fit with Trump’s agenda, but calls to question Tillerson’s overall role in the Trump administration. Now, someone who has a definite metaphoric dog in the fight to hold the Trump administration accountable for their actions, is speaking up and sharing his thoughts about what Trump staffers, specifically Rex Tillerson, should be looking to do.

Democratic Congressman and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ted Lieu (CA) posted the tweet below and his candor has many people wondering if there is anything subliminal in his message:

Naturally, Lieu’s blatant message is clear, if Rex Tillerson had anything to do with helping Trump fire James Comey so Comey’s investigation into Trump’s relationship with Russia would end/be negatively impacted, Tillerson needs to get legal counsel, immediately. However, the unintended message that Lieu is sending is one that sounds a lot like he feels Tillerson is guilty of being part of Trump’s conspiracy to obstruct.

Lieu didn’t stop with the tweet above. He also reminded that Tillerson has been a party to Donald Trump’s admission of wrongdoing:

He also called about National Security Adviser, General H.R. McMaster:

Lieu is no stranger to going straight for the jugular where Donald Trump is concerned. On Saturday, Lieu trolled Trump and those closest to him by pointing out that Lieu is a member of the House Judiciary Committee and is also reading up on the impeachment process:

Needless to say, Lieu is playing zero games with the Trump administration.
