Senior U.S. officials say President Donald Trump is considering ousting Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and replacing him with CIA Director and former Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo following less than a year on the job. 

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn't deny that's what Trump has been thinking of doing. But she suggested that no move was imminent, saying the president and Tillerson planned to work together to close out the year.
