Marco Rubio Attacks DOJ, Defends Trump After Fox News Host Rips Former President For Keeping Classified Docs In Drawer
GOP Sen. Marco Rubio on Wednesday slammed the Justice Department and defended former president Donald Trump’s hoarding of classified documents at his Florida residence.
During an interview on Fox and Friends, Rubio criticized the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago after host Steve Doocy chided Trump for storing nuclear secrets in an unsecured desk drawer.
“You can understand why when you first heard about this stuff, you heard, well, maybe it’s things like a note from Kim Jong-un to President Trump,” Doocy said. “But then, if true, this Washington Post report, highly classified documents at Mar-a-Lago that only a cabinet-level officer or higher could even look at!”
“That doesn’t seem like the kind of thing you should have in your post-presidential desk drawer,” he added.
But Rubio refused to acknowledge the substance of the report, saying:”We really don’t know because let’s go back and understand that all of this information is coming from one side and one place,” the Florida Republican said. “And that is sources with knowledge of the investigation. Well, who are the sources with knowledge of the investigation? The FBI and the Justice Department and they are leaking to the media.”
He added that the leaks indicate that the investigation is about “politics.”
“I’m skeptical,” he griped.
