UPDATE: Wednesday February 1, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. PST – Rex Tillerson, the CEO of Exxon Mobile, has just been confirmed as Donald Trump's Secretary of State. Tillerson adds to a troubling trifecta of Trump cabinet appointees with long-held relationships with Russia. Tillerson has had a lucrative oil deal with Russia since 1999, and in 2012 was awarded the "Friend of Russia" award directly from Russian President Vladimir Putin himself.
PREVIOUSLY: Last week, while Americans pored into the streets expressing their outrage over Donald Trump's immigration ban that seeks to prohibit entry into the United States by Syrian refugees and muslims from seven Muslim countries linked to terror, some troubling global developments occurred quietly and out of the glare of the public spotlight that may be of dire concern.
Indeed, Rosneft, the Russian Government-owned oil company, sold off 19.5% of their stock in a highly suspicious manner last week, particularly in light of Donald Trump's continued reluctance to present the American people a copy of his tax returns, and a highly-anticipated telephone conversation between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that transpired on Saturday.
