Russian interference in 2016 election has been 'well documented,' Tillerson says


To watch Chuck Todd's exclusive interview with Rex Tillerson, tune in to "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "And my values are those of the country".

Tillerson, who ran Exxon Mobil before serving as one of Trump's top Cabinet positions, also said he is not concerned about his own independence from the President following Comey's dismissal.

In his conversations with the Russian officials, Trump appeared to be boasting about his knowledge of the looming threats, telling them he was briefed on "great intel every day", an official with knowledge of the exchange said, according to the Post.

Asked about USA intelligence reports that Russia meddled in last year's United States presidential election campaign, Tillerson said, "I don't think there's any question that the Russians were playing around in our electoral processes". It's certainly not healthy for us.

"I am devoted to helping the president achieve his objectives, helping him be successful", Tillerson said. "Policy has to be tailored to the individual situation". "There are many, many important areas which require our attention if we are to bring it back to a relationship that we believe is necessary for the security of the USA".

The secretary of state added that the term "reset" would not be applicable to the US-Russian relations.

According to the sheriff's department, Wright was identified after she posted details of the incident on Facebook. Deputies say the two had been at a town hall meeting on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Martin.

"The relationship with Russian Federation, as he has described, and I have described as well, is, I think, at an all-time low point since the end of the Cold War, with a very low level of trust".

"I think it's important to understand we're not trying to start with a clean slate". In the wake of Comey's firing, opposition Democratic lawmakers and some Republicans have called for a special prosecutor to be appointed to lead the investigation into Russia's meddling in last year's US presidential election.

"We're starting with the slate we have and all the problems that are on that slate".

Trump's presidency has been dogged by the Russian-meddling allegations and investigations by the FBI and congressional committees about contacts between his associates and Russian officials.

"The president is being very careful to understand how such a decision would impact the peace process", Tillerson said.
