Rubio to GOP: Ignore WikiLeaks
Sen. Marco Rubio called on the Republican Party to ignore WikiLeaks and all the information they are leaking.
“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,” Rubio told ABC News.
“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.”
The Hill reports:
Many Republicans, including presidential nominee Donald Trump, have seized upon a trove of emails that were purportedly stolen from Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman in a hack and published by WikiLeaks.
The U.S. intelligence community has blamed Russia for similar hacks in the past year as part of an effort to undermine the presidential election.
“I will not discuss any issue that has become public solely on the basis of WikiLeaks,” Rubio told ABC.
