Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio released a statement on Friday admitting that Donald Trump did commit an impeachable offense. But that’s not all Rubio said in his statement.
Rubio claimed that while Trump did commit an impeachable offense, he will still acquit him because it’s in the “public interest.”
Twitter decided to blast the Florida Republican over his ridiculous statements. You can see the responses below:
“Just because actions meet a standard of impeachment does not mean it is in the best interest of the country to remove a President from office." OMG you’re such a coward.

The GOP has abandoned the entire history of the party to keep this momentary hold on power. There is no “back to normal” after this. You have chosen Trump as the hill that you want the words Republican & GOP will die on. The Trump Party is what you are now. Shameful.

If the founders really didn’t want congress to use their power they wouldn’t have given it to you.

Little Marco you are a complete disgrace.
Please resign, you're the worst senator in US history

Marco Rubio keeps quoting the bible because walking without a spine made him believe in miracles.

If Rubio doesn't have the strength of character to do the hard work of supporting and defending the Constitution, then he should resign and let a mature adult replace him.

“I mean, this is unreal. Again, this guy is a con artist. He’s always making things up. No one holds him accountable for it.”

At what point should you rush to the ER because someone cut our your balls, spine and character?

What an enormous disappointment that not a single Republican will put the Constitution and the country above their party and their own careers. I couldn't possibly be more disgusted with the lot of you.
Congrats, man, y'all are ending your own toxic party for a con like Trump.

"Can anyone doubt that at least half of the country would view his removal as illegitimate, view it as a coup" OF COURSE MARCO YOU AND THE @GOP HAVE BEEN FEEDING THAT NARRATIVE. That is EXACTLY what you intended and what you got. All that the citizens get is a loss of our country
