From The Dallas Morning News:
WASHINGTON – Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sought to subvert President Donald Trump’s agenda as part of an effort to “save the country,” according to a new book by Nikki Haley, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
Tillerson, the former ExxonMobil chief executive, worked on that aim with former White House chief of Staff John Kelly and tried unsuccessfully to recruit Haley to the cause, she said.

“Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country,” Haley wrote in “With All Due Respect,” which is set to be released on Tuesday.
“It was their decisions, not the president’s, that were in the best interests of America, they said. The president didn’t know what he was doing,” she wrote, according to an advanced copy obtained on Sunday by the Washington Post.
Tillerson went so far to tell Haley that if he didn’t resist Trump’s decisions “people would die,” Haley wrote.
Trump has not commented on the alleged activity by Tillerson and Kelly, though he took to Twitter on Sunday to tell his followers to get a copy of Haley’s tome. Tillerson, in turn, didn’t respond to the Post’s request for a comment.
Kelly, however, has told news outlets that “if by resistance and stalling, she means putting a staff process in place … to ensure the (president) knew all the pros and cons of what policy decision he might be contemplating so he could make an informed decision, then guilty as charged.”
In case you were wondering about the logos, Haley joined the board of Boeing months after leaving the administration. Empty Barrel Kelly was hired by Caliburn International, a military contracting conglomerate. One of its subsidiaries, Comprehensive Health Services, operates the facility in Homestead, Floriduhhh where they separate immigrant children from their parents.
