President Barack Obama expanded the unit's mission at the end of his term after intelligence agencies concluded Russian Federation had flooded social media with fake news and phony Twitter accounts to influence the 2016 elections, and lawmakers from both parties want a stronger US response.
Tillerson conceded that the vote was representative of the American people's view "because it was made by their representatives in the Congress". Tillerson also has fumed over the slow pace of White House approvals for senior State Department positions.
Tillerson said he understood why Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the U.S.to drastically cut its diplomatic presence in Russia, even though the move was in retaliation for a similar USA action previous year under President Barack Obama.
"And the question, I think, of the events of the last week or so, is it getting worse or can we maintain some level of stability in that relationship?"

"I would say our conversation following the actions has been professional. The sequencing of all of that, we're open to, as long as that is the that's is achieved at the end", he said.
We initiated a sustained and continued intensified campaign on what I like to call peaceful pressure, because the options available to us, I think as all of you well understand, are limited, and particularly if we think we are operating under a short period of time.
