Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio says he does not believe that former President Donald Trump committed any kind of crime in bringing presidential documents to Mar-a-Lago.  

Last month, the National Archives and Records Administration recovered 15 boxes of White House documents from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida. It was later reported that classified documents had been discovered among the boxes.

While speaking with host Bret Baier on a recent episode of Fox News’s “Special Report,” Rubio was asked why Republicans were not expressing the same degree of outrage they displayed when it was disclosed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had used a private email server while working for the White House.

“Well, first of all, I don’t know what’s true and what’s not because they’ve made up so many stories about Donald Trump over the years that, I mean, things that I just knew were flat out untrue,” Rubio said.

The Florida senator, who is up for reelection in November, argued that the situation with Clinton’s emails was different because it was handled by the federal government and not disclosed by the media.

According to excerpts from an upcoming book written by New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman, White House staffers regularly found documents clogging the toilet in the White House residence during Trump’s time in office; she also claims that Trump “routinely” tore up documents that staffers had to tape back together.

“Nowadays, in the mainstream media, you just need one source to smear Donald Trump, and maybe you don’t even need that. So it’s hard to tell anymore what really happened and what didn’t. The documents that were in Mar-a-Lago by all accounts were turned over,” Rubio said.

“Look, if the process wasn’t followed there, then that there needs to be something that happens about that. It’s not a crime, I don’t believe, but the stuff about flushing paper down the toilet — who knows if that’s even true?”

Rubio claimed to have seen “at least a dozen things” about Trump reported by the media as well as written in books written that he knew were false.

Democrats are claiming that the storage of White House documents at Mar-a-Lago was a possible violation of the Presidential Records Act. The National Archives reportedly alerted the Department of Justice after discovering the possibly classified documents.

As of yet, no action has been taken by the DOJ.

  1. Time to leave Trump alone and go after Clinton Russia gate, Pelosi January 6th set up, Biden Afghanistan disasterous withdrawal and Marxism regime and the Squads radial jihadi policies!

  2. Obviously, we’re heading into election season. Rubio is supporting PRESIDENT Trump which he only does when he needs something. Rubio is a hand puppet of Romney and if someone primaried him, I’d support the other Republican. To me, Rubio is useless and I hate voting for him, but I’ll never vote for a DEMONrat again.
