U.S. Senate Democrats plan to enlist accountants and legal experts to pore through the business records of ExxonMobil Chief Executive Rex Tillerson, President-elect Donald Trump's pick for secretary of state, Democratic aides said.Tillerson could face a rocky confirmation process, given concerns among both Democrats and Republicans about his ties to Russia. Aides said Democrats began assembling experts to prepare for Tillerson's confirmation even before his nomination was formally announced Tuesday.Marco Rubio, a Republican member of the Foreign Relations panel, who ran against Trump for the Republican presidential nomination, said he had "serious concerns" about Tillerson's nomination.Even critics said, however, they were open to the appointment, if Tillerson gives satisfactory answers during the confirmation process.
