From Humphrey:

Republican Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker was reportedly a contender to become President-elect Donald Trump’s secretary of state, but internal documents provided by a Trump confidant reveal that insider trading allegations lowered Corker’s chances of being chosen, reports The Daily Caller.

Additionally, two sources close to the Trump transition process told The Daily Caller that Sen. Corker’s short stature was a trait the president-elect did not want in his top diplomat.

The documents provided to The DC were crafted before and after the time Sen. Corker was also being considered to become Trump’s vice president. One of them is titled, “Bob Corker: Mixing Public Service with Personal Profit.”

This article is certain to smear a little mud on Senator Corker's public service. But mixing public service with personal profit is a longstanding Tennessee tradition, isn't it?
