Wednesday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) warned first in a statement and then to the press that using the WikiLeaks hack of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s email account for political gain is dangerous because it is an effort by a foreign government to interfere with the American electoral process that could in turn be used against Republicans one day.
Rubio said, “What I would say to my Republican colleagues, some of whom may be disappointed by the position I’ve taken is, today it’s them and tomorrow it could be us. And just think about this, do we want to be a country where foreign leaders or foreign intelligence agencies can blackmail our elected officials?”
He added, “I think there is plenty of material we can line up to take on Secretary Clinton. This one is an invitation for chaos and havoc in the future.”
