Rubio To Comey: Only Thing Not Leaked Is That Trump Was Not Under Investigation (Video)

Out of all the leaks coming from inside the White House, why was the fact that President Donald Trump was not personally under investigation for Russian collusion not leaked?

That is the question that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) asked former FBI Director James Comey Earlier in the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, Comey said Trump did not ask him to end the Russia investigation as a whole. He also said he believed he was fired by Trump because of the Russia investigation.

Rubio wondered about all the leaks that have occurred during the Trump-Russia investigation, saying “we’ve learned more from the newspapers sometimes than we do from our open hearings.”

“Do you ever wonder why, of all the things in this investigation, the only thing that’s never been leaked is the fact that the president was not personally under investigation, despite the fact that Democrats and Republicans and the leadership of Congress knew that and have known that for weeks?” he asked.

Comey answered that classified briefings to Congress on such matters are “pretty tightly held.”

The Blaze reported that the subjects of leaks from inside the Trump administration has been an ongoing source of frustration for Trump and Republicans in particular, who have frequently criticized both the leakers and the media who have carried the leaks in the media.

During the course of the hearing, Comey also indicated that many of the stories that have been based on allegedly leaked classified information have been substantially false and incorrect.
