Secretary of State Rex Tillerson may soon be fired and replaced with CIA Director Mike Pompeo within weeks, a new bombshell report from The New York Times claims. According to the story, the White House has already developed a plan to force out Tillerson, who has an increasingly strained relationship with President Trump. Pompeo, in turn, would be replaced by Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR). The Times did not specify whether Trump had yet approved the plan.
