Rubio: ‘If I Were President, I Would Be Welcoming This Investigation’

Written by  Susan Jones

(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla), a member of the intelligence committee, had some advice for President Donald Trump on Sunday:

“It is in the best interests of the president and the country to have a full investigation,” Rubio told CBS’s “Face the Nation.

“I really -- if I were the president, I would be welcoming this investigation. I would ask that it be thorough and completed expeditiously and be very cooperative with it.”

Trump on Sunday once again tweeted his displeasure with the ramped-up Russia investigation, now led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller: “The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt,” the president tweeted.

Rubio said it’s in the best interests of the country to have a “full-scale investigation that looks at everything, so that we can move forward.”

The Washington Post reported last week that Mueller may be investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice for firing of FBI Director James Comey.

CBS’s John Dickerson asked Rubio if obstruction should be part of Mueller’s investigation as well:

“Well, I just think it is important to answer questions, because, otherwise, if people have any doubts, it undermines confidence in our system of government, in our elections, in our leaders," Rubio replied.
