Rubio: I Won't Talk About WikiLeaks Emails and Neither Should Trump
At PJMEDIA by Rick Moran --
Citing "an effort by a foreign government to interfere with our electoral process," Senator Marco Rubio told ABC News he would not discuss or use the hacked emails published by WikiLeaks.
Rubio's stand puts him directly at odds with Donald Trump and other Republicans, who have been relentlessly hammering Clinton and her campaign over the content of the hacked emails.
"WikiLeaks has provided things that are unbelievable," he said at a rally in Colorado on Tuesday, accusing the media of ignoring the leaks. "The media, you have to remember, is an extension of the Hillary Clinton campaign. It's an extension. And without that, she would be nowhere."
While Trump regularly slams the news media for not paying enough attention to the stolen emails, Rubio argues that making an issue out of the WikiLeaks disclosures plays into the hands of the Russian government.
"I will not discuss any issue that has become public solely on the basis of WikiLeaks," Rubio tells ABC news.
