Rubio once asked: 'Can this country afford to have a president under investigation by the FBI?'
Days before the presidential election, Marco Rubio asked a crowd in Punta Gorda, "Can this country afford to have a president under investigation by the FBI?"
"No," the audience shouted.
That comment, captured by the liberal opposition research group American Bridge, was directed at Hillary Clinton. But it has a new meaning today as the FBI confirmed it has an ongoing investigation into Russian involvement in the election and possible ties to the Trump associates, which would include Roger Stone.
We have asked for Rubio's reaction to today's House Intelligence Committee hearing and will update if he responds.
