Rubio Says Trump Should Welcome Russia Investigation

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, on Sunday said President Trump should be welcoming the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election, despite the President’s claims that it is a “witch hunt.”

“If I were the President, I would be welcoming this investigation,” Rubio said during an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “I would ask that it be thorough and completed expeditiously and be very cooperative with it.”

Rubio also took a shot at the President’s use of Twitter to fight back against the allegations during a separate interview.

“The FBI doesn’t sit around all day and read tweets. The FBI’s going to do their job. Mueller’s going to do his job,” Rubio said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”

Rubio added that “a full and thorough and credible investigation that reveals everything” is “the best thing that can happen for everybody,” even Trump.
