Suffice it to say I don't have any basis, I've never heard that allegation made before by anybody. I've never seen anything about that anywhere before. But again, the president put that out there, and now the White House will have to answer as to exactly what he was referring to.

My staff was told the State Department as of today was ordered not to talk to Congress about this issue. I don't know the reason, maybe perhaps they're still kind of working through how this is going to apply and so perhaps they don't want to give us information that is wrong. Not just with Congress, Look, I believe it was a mistake not to coordinate more closely with the agencies that were going to be tasked with implementing this and I would hope that had they have to do it again they would have approached it differently.

Despite my reservations, I will support Mr. Tillerson's nomination in committee and in the full Senate.

I will do my part to ensure he receives a full and fair but also thorough hearing.
