Joe Scarborough Takes Marco Rubio To The Woodshed For Defending Trump Stealing Top Secret Docs



Marco Rubio and Morning Joe

During Tuesday’s edition of MSNBC “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough unloaded on Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for dismissing concerns about Donald Trump hoarding top secret documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

Asked to comment about the FBI’s raid at Mar-a-Lago where agents seized dozens of stolen documents a month ago, Rubio attempted to downplay what Trump was doing by saying, “This is, really, at its core, a storage argument that they’re making.”

“I don’t think a fight over the storage of documents is worthy of what they’ve done, which is a full-scale raid and then these constant leaks,” Rubio said in an interview over the weekend.

However, as noted by Joe Scarborough, Rubio ignored the fact that Trump was breaking three separate laws –including obstruction — and the documents were far from secure.

‘I mean, there is no line,” the Morning Joe host began. “Marco Rubio was running the Senate Intel Committee, so you have Marco Rubio saying, top secret documents are only at risk if they’re mishandled by Democrats. Top secret documents mishandled and actually taken, removed from a government office, removed from the White House and illegally, improperly hidden at Mar-a-Lago, even after the FBI negotiates and tries to get them all back, it just doesn’t matter. So, again, is there any line? No, there’s no line.”

“Now it’s a storage issue?” Scarborough asked. “No, it’s not a storage issue. Nobody ever believed it was a storage issue. Marco Rubio never believed it was a storage issue. If you take top secret documents out of a government building, Marco Rubio would be the first person to say, like me in the past, you go to jail. You go to jail.”

“The hell with institutions, according to people like Marco Rubio. The hell with top secret documents, the hell with the FBI, the hell with the CIA the hell with the Justice Department, the hell with the rule of law,” he added.
