WASHINGTON, Nov 30 (Reuters) – The White House has developed a plan to replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with Mike Pompeo, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, within weeks, a senior Trump administration official said on Thursday.

The Times, the first to report the plan, said it was not immediately clear whether President Donald Trump had given final approval to the shakeup.
