Rex Tillerson, Donald Trump’s pick to be Secretary of State, said he looks forward to working with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in imposing new sanctions on Russia Wednesday.
“I look forward to engaging with this entire committee, particularly on the construct of new sanctions … what I would hope is that the executive branch and then my role at the State Department, if confirmed, would be the latitude to use those sanctions in efforts to cause modifications in Russia’s positions,” Tillerson told the Committee.
Tillerson was responding to questions from Senator Chris Coons (D-DE). Coons remarked that the Senate voted 99-0 to reject Secretary Kerry’s request that Congress not impose new sanctions on Iran.
