Rex Tillerson Testifies


The former secretary of state says “it was evident” Jared Kushner was engaging in freelance foreign policy during the Trump Administration

As I said last week, the Tom Barrack trial could shed light on what was possibly the most corrupt, self-dealing piece of the Trump presidency’s foreign policy in the Middle East—that is, the administration’s response to the 2017 blockade of Qatar. The trial’s look into the blockade involves everyone from former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to Jared Kushner (whose name is on the witness list for the government, and whose testimony, in my opinion, the defense would be crazy not to commandeer).

Tillerson was brought in yesterday as a government witness and was asked about Barrack (whom he could barely remember) and also, thankfully, about Kushner (whom he definitely did remember).
