In Rocky Hearing, Rex Tillerson Tries to Separate From Trump

The former chief executive of Exxon Mobil found himself on the defensive over his reluctance to declare that some dictators were violators of human rights. On climate change, Mr. Tillerson said he did not view it as the imminent national security threat that some others did. On Iran he tried to strike a middle ground between Republicans who said the deal should be scrapped – including Vice President-elect Mike Pence – and those who simply call for tougher enforcement of its provisions.
