U.S. Senator Chris Murphy has met privately with Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson and opposes the nomination. Murphy, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, says they had a substantive, frank conversation in which he was up front about the numerous concerns he has about Tillerson's nomination. Murphy says he is looking for a leader who will be an advocate for growing diplomacy, and who doesn’t shy away from confronting countries like Russia over increased aggression. Murphy said he also wants a Secretary of State who will be a voice for protecting international human rights, and who can lead progress on climate change. He came away from the meeting unconvinced that Tillerson is a nominee that meets those standards.
