Murphy Suggests Tillerson Is Inviting Russians to Disrupt 2018 Elections

US could ban imports of Venezuelan crude oil

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that Russian Federation is already meddling in America's 2018 midterm elections, and that the U.S.is not necessarily better prepared to deal with the Moscow's influence than it was in 2016.

Speaking at Colombia's presidential palace, Tillerson said the United States was also studying the idea of helping Colombia financially as it deals with more than 600,000 Venezuelans who have fled across the border in recent years amid an economic meltdown.

He said the U.S.is no more prepared now than it was before the 2016 presidential election to prevent Russian interference.

"I don't think that President Trump is referring to Colombia, because Colombia is not laughing at the US", President Juan Manuel Santos said at a joint news conference with Tillerson.

Cheddar Man does not share any direct ancestry with the people who inhabited Gough's Cave almost 5,000 years earlier. Once that information had been confirmed, palaeontological reconstruction experts reconstructed his face.

He added, though, that if Moscow decides to meddle in an election, "it's very hard to preempt it". "Obviously it will be the president who decides", said Tillerson, who was chief executive of Exxon Mobil Corp before joining the government.

Tillerson also said that U.S. Vice President Mike Pence would attend the opening of the Olympics this week in South Korea, but not clear if the Trump administration would speak with North Korean officials there.

Oil posted the biggest decline in more than two months Wednesday as record crude production from US fields reignited worries that supplies will swamp demand.

A U.S. embargo on Venezuela's main export could deal a decisive blow to President Nicolas Maduro's beleaguered regime, but would also hurt USA oil companies operating Gulf Coast refineries.

USA officials have said they won't object to Maduro's presence at the summit because it would give him a chance to hear from regional leaders critical of his authoritarian path. The two get mixed together in Venezuela and shipped back to the United States.

Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness suggested the region is already moving on following years of dependence on subsidized Venezuelan oil.

"Obviously sanctioning the oil, or in effect prohibiting the oil to be sold in the United States... is something we continue to consider", he told reporters on Sunday. “With the new dynamics in the global trade and energy and the United States is becoming a net exporter of energy resources, Jamaica can in this new paradigm benefit from that.”. "We wish the best for the people of Venezuela", the prime minister said. Any action must be taken to target the Maduro administration, and not the people of Venezuela, he said. "'If you don't, you're going to just continue to invite consequences for yourself'".
