Rubio: If Trump Camp Colluded, 'It Would Have Been Leaked A Long Time Ago'

Source: Talking Points Memo




By Matt Shuham | May 17, 2018 11:01 am

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said Thursday that if there had been collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, “it would have been leaked a long time ago.”

-snip-

“What do you think? Do you think there was collusion during this election or not?” Hemmer asked.

“We’ve seen no evidence of that to this point,” Rubio said, repeating a Republican talking point with regard to the various probes of Trump’s campaign. He argued that “the best thing that can happen here for the President is for all the facts to come out.”

“Even it takes another year or even two years?” Hemmer asked. “Is that what you’re saying?”

“Let me tell you this,” Rubio responded, “if there was anything about collusion, it would have been leaked a long time ago and everybody would have been talking about it. But, you know, we’re still doing our work. Mueller’s still doing his work. We’ll see. But let me just reiterate what I said, and read into it what you might. Let the truth come out. I think that’s the best thing for the country and the President, believe me.”

1. I guess the Trump Tower meeting between the Trump campaign and the Russians is not evidence.

Go figure.

22. I guess "Russia, if you're listening..." is not evidence.

Collusion on TV in a loud voice is collusion.

16. There have been constant leaks from the get go. but I suspect Rubio means leaks from Mueller's

investigation. Mueller has let a few strategic leaks out, but nothing that would damage a future case. No Republican could understand people with the integrity and work ethic of Mueller's team.

3. This man is in danger

If he were in a burning house, his denial would keep him on the couch watching Fox News while the smoke filled the room. As the flames engulf him, the screams of "DAMN OBAMA!" would be his final words.

5. It always amazes me how many idiots get elected to political office.

"If there was collusion it would have been leaked a long time ago...." and then a moment later "...let the truth come out..." Rubio is a dope who rode into office on his fake story of his parents fleeing Castro. And then the people of Florida re-elected him after he talked endlessly about how much he hated his job. He can't make up his mind in the same sentence.

6. Nice going, Rubio. Talking out of both sides of your mouth.



On the one hand, if they found evidence of collusion it would have leaked out already. On the other hand, let the truth come out. That way, no matter how it turns out (collusion verified, NO collusion found) you can claim you were on the right side. Sniveling coward, you are. No courage to come out for one view or the other, so you choose both.

7. Evidence???

What is his definition of evidence? These people would be better off saying nothing at all. Every time they open their mouths, they just make things worse. Rubio should have gone with his first instinct, not to run for the Senate again.

12. Who needs leakers with this bunch? Who would leak their act of crime?

Papadapolous got drunk and blabbed. Page was on the FBI watch list for years. There was an informant in the campaign

Now Flynn Manafort Cohen and the rest are on the hook squirming.

There tons of crimes involved. It would be stupid to leak because it would all comE back to you and you'd be on the hook too

As far as a Russian leaking, well you'd be dead

Beyond that there was one major source of leaks: the Steele dossier

13. Flynn essentially pled guilty to it!

See, these guys always conflate "Trump campaign" with "Donald Trump". The only thing they care about is protecting Donald Trump. It doesn't matter what happens to anybody else, they don't count.

Last edited Thu May 17, 2018, 01:47 PM - Edit history (1)

the reports of the meeting in July 2016 at trump tower was—all about adoption?

He's just trying to find a safe space to openly come out on trump's and the repug's side as he always eventually does.

19. 40+ happenstance meetings

26. So Marco thinks Trump beat him in the primary "fair and square"

It was fine for Trump to use intelligence provided from a foreign government to win the Presidential Election, but also the Republican Primary? If Rubio had somehow overcome Trump and his foreign help and won the nomination, would he or his campaign have actively sought out Wikileaks, The likes of CA, and not bothered to worry if Russia lodged a disinformation campaign and broke into state databases on his behalf? Good to know where Rubio stands. Pathetic.
