Sen. Marco Rubio advised his fellow Republicans on Wednesday not to use revelations in WikiLeaks as political ammo against Hillary Clinton and other Democrats. ... "As our intelligence agencies have said, these leaks are an effort by a foreign government to interfere with our electoral process and I will not indulge it," Rubio explained.Rubio, of course, isn't trying to desperately find anything that will give his campaign traction.
Rubio, a member of the Senate Intelligence and Foreign Relations committees, added: "I want to warn my fellow Republicans who may want to capitalize politically on these leaks: Today it is the Democrats. Tomorrow it could be us."
But Rubio also knows that being seen as a tool, however unwittingly, of Vladimir Putin and the FSB is a stench that will hang on the GOP for a very long time. Trump doesn't care about any of that, for he is an opportunist member of the GOP. He has no loyalty whatsoever to the party or any whit of concern about its long-term prospects. If the GOP gets pulled down in ruins around his campaign, he's just fine with that.
I'd call Trump an "opportunistic jackal", except that if jackals were able to contact a lawyer, I could be sued for defaming their character.
