Despite being informed that no questions would be fielded by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during a recent photo-op, NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell fired away regardless – and got booted from the seventh floor of the State Department for her efforts.
The meeting involved Tillerson and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin.
Mitchell spat out question after question – on national security matters, on Russian activity in the Ukraine, on whether Klimkin could trust Trump to be tough on Putin – but it was to no avail, as she was rushed out of the room.

She asked Tillerson about threats from China and Russia’s relationship with Ukraine and was met with silence.
