Marco Rubio is being lauded by many for his devastating questions when interviewing Comey in the Senate hearing this morning. In fact some suggest that the hearing need not even continue after Rubio’s questions.
Here’s Rubio’s full seven minutes of questioning Comey:
Rubio got Comey to admit that Trump wanted the Russian investigation to continue and that even if some of his own people had done something wrong, he wanted that to come out too. That kills the narrative that Trump hated the Russian investigation.
The other thing that’s getting a lot of attention is one of Rubio’s last points, that the only thing that never leaked was that Trump wasn’t being investigated, despite the fact that both Republicans and Democrats in Congress new it.
Rubio: Ever wonder why the only thing that's never been leaked "is the fact that the president was not personally under investigation?" pic.twitter.com/Kc2odyRHnM

And with that Rubio exposes how the leaks are solely meant to destroy Trump.
I expect Rubio will be getting a thank you tweet (or phone call) from Trump later on today.
Here are a few of the things people were saying about Rubio’s interrogation:
Rubio — in glasses! — seems to offer a pretty forceful defense of Trump in his Comey questioning.

So, not only did Trump NOT try to stop the Russia investigation, but he actually ENCOURAGED the investigation. Huge blow to Democrats.

Rubio…who took a beating from Trump during the election…may have done him best during this hearing

Rubio's questioning & comments outstanding; in fact, when he finished, you had to wonder why the hearing continues.
