The Senate confirmation hearing has begun for President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to be secretary of state.

Former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson will be appearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee all day today and possibly again tomorrow.

Democratic senators plan to question Tillerson about his ties to Russia during the time he was leading the international oil giant.
