Sen. Marco Rubio told ABC News that Republicans and Donald Trump are making a mistake by “indulging Wikileaks’ and jumping on the alleged hacked emails because it’s an attempt by a foreign government to influence our election process.
The Florida Senator also is worried the the next round of hacks could expose Republicans next.
This may be the motivation behind his words, but it’s still the right thing to say.
Rubio said, “As our intelligence agencies have said, these leaks are an effort by a foreign government to interfere with our electoral process and I will not indulge it.
He continued, “Further, I want to warn my fellow Republicans who may want to capitalize politically on these leaks: Today it is the Democrats. Tomorrow it could be us.”
Nobody has confirmed all the information that Wikileaks has released pertaining to the Clinton campaign, but it hasn’t stopped Fox News and many others from reporting them as verified facts.
The latest bogus scandal culled from the documents is a supposedly “quid pro quo” with the FBI, but that was easily refuted — check out Rachel Maddow’s debunking of Rep. Chaffetz’ on latest leaked emails.
