If you had the opportunity to ask Rex to ask questions today. Obviously you guys are not. When relations who's been. What would you want to ask him in regards to your. That he passed. This country and the world decades and smoke my teens highlights and Italy and share parents about the chance happy note that that is true we know. Reports are there generic current investigations by non six and its collapse of climate steam so I would want an analytic skills like.

When you guys want you to raise awareness among senators. And on the hill this is not so. That you believe is the right. That's.

May everything distributed in action on Monday where people are going to there's offices and air district says. I'm asking for candidates to reject this and it's really listened to act and not the interests that. You can show us your teacher through questionnaire. And you know player. Hold him accountable for its. Your senator being Cory Gardner left wing Josh Haskell. Delivered to you I'm not Cory Gardner but I think I know I followed Cory gardener and I take it that you written him letters and tried. Sort of being here showing your presence currently living crap I think one of the things that Republicans that this really. This beyond a partisan issue. It's still my reference on and I'm hoping to hear me that I'm extremely concerned about it. And it ain't. Game and it's a nominee and now we just because your mind about men and national security gains as cholera and really hope that. There are now represents in the air and actually asked right. We will we don't wanna hold you guys up fully involved. Looks although it's only three feet and no matter how the line is we show you right now it's not too long there are. People here that oppose Rex Tillerson and there are people here that support Rex Tillerson. Mr. Sanders correct yes Josh Haskell with ABC. I mean you were telling me didn't have a background in foreign affairs and yours because you wanted to see what Rex with an asset. Yes that's right she would have to say. Health news putting together that are national security. Policy. Here is supportive putting business. Have broad experience but we'll let us. Local and president orders from the department state. I think. Statement which performances and more effective. Rex Tillerson has spent his whole career ExxonMobil. He worked his way up as an engineer. That's what is his background has always been. That doesn't concern you would only. Lack of experience. Abroad is or is it government in the military. And on their own versions of the private sector infected I think I think it's good to have great respect. State Department should be able to tape. The department city and it will take some business experience and global business experience and that leads. All around the world really expensive. Homes corporation we've offices and most of the countries of the world. Mr. Phillips and sort of broad experience and park running. Effective way. And the part. Differed with him opus.

His relationship with what your prudent. Of course in light. Our intelligence sneezing rushing here or election is that something that concerns you two. For a solution relationship. With Russia would keep. Tough on Russia because he has it. In the past pre button you wouldn't. Just. I think I think there's a New Year's Day. That's been forceful and effective representative and American people because it. Two men are being open and trying to make progress advance America's interest so can he do that. With. Would Russia with the Russian Federation meant more effectively than someone else probably so inside Rex Tillerson says. Can you blame the failure the Phillies to Russia on President Obama on what he called the lack of leadership which allowed Russia. And the actions they took corn that some that you believe I think.
