Sen. Marco Rubio told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos Sunday that he has not seen evidence that former national security advisor Susan Rice committed a crime by allegedly unmasking private U.S. citizens, a claim made last week by President Trump.
“I usually try not to opine on those issues,” the Florida Republican stated when asked if he, as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, had seen evidence to support the president’s claim. “Suffice it to say, I have not seen anything like it.” (VIDEO: Trump — ‘Yes, I Think’ Rice Committed A Crime)
“Let me just say we have learned over the last couple of weeks how bad it is to kind of be talking and debating these things in front of the media,” he continued. “If you’re serious about a fact-finding mission, you wait for the facts to come in, you write a report, you make them public, and then you and members of the Senate, the House the American public can look at those facts and decide where we should go from there.”
“That’s what we’re in the process of doing,” he told Stephanopoulos. “And I’m very proud of the work the Intelligence Committee is doing in the Senate.”
