EXCLUSIVE: Rachel Maddow uncovers Vladimir Putins treacherous tratment of his political opponents and ties it to Rex W. Tillerson, President of Exxon Mobil and Trump’s pick for Secretary of State. Tillerson has a reputation for ignoring U.S. Foreign Policy specifically with regard to sanctions placed against Russia for their invasion of the Ukraine. Russia’s aggression halted the massive $500 billion oil exploration partnership which included Exxon Mobil. Putin invited “Big Oil” Executives to an Oil Expo to be held in St Petersburg. The US Government communicated to the US based executives that participating in the expo would be against the interests of the United States. Tillerson attended anyway and mocked the US during the proceedings.
