Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirmed that the attempted assassination of a former spy in the UK had originated from Russia. But he didn't go so far as to formally accuse the Russian government, saying that he didn't know if the attack had been sanctioned by Moscow. Tillerson said the incident would "certainly trigger a response." On Monday, Tillerson released a statement saying he had "full confidence in the UK's investigation and its assessment that Russia was likely responsible." Tillerson's comments were firm compared to an earlier statement from White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. After being pressed on whether Russia was responsible for the attack, Sanders said only that the US was "standing with our UK ally."
