President-Elect Trump Nominates ExxonMobil CEO For Secretary Of State

Posted: Updated:

After weeks of anticipation, President-elect Donald Trump officially announced his choice for Secretary of State.

The President-elect's transition team made the much-anticipated announcement Tuesday morning, calling on ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson to head the state department.

Tillerson's nomination could lead to a heated senate confirmation battle due to his close ties with Russia.

The CIA believes Russia leaked hacked e-mails from the Democratic Party to help Trump win the election.

Trump believes this is all to discredit his victory.

Now, Congress is calling for a bi-partisan investigation.
