Rex Tillerson found out when the rest of the world did yesterday, via Twitter, that he was out as Secretary of State and current CIA Director Mike Pompeo was in.

McMaster and Chief of Staff John Kelly are all in the president’s crosshairs.
Jennifer Braceras, a conservative columnist and attorney who knew Mike Pompeo at Harvard Law School, and Gautam Mukunda, a Harvard Kennedy School fellow and member of the Council on Foreign Relations joined Jim Braude to discuss.
