OMG, finally an intelligent, rationale, although self-serving, statement by a Republican. Maybe next Mitch McConnell will come out in support of hearings to consider the appointment of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. And pledge to support Hillary when she is elected President. Sorry folks, it’s not going to happen. You can put away your long underwear and down jackets for at least another four years.
Marco Rubio Calls Out Republicans for Suddenly Being Fans of WikiLeaks: The GOP once reviled the website, but now supports it for publishing Democrats’ hacked emails.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) issued a stern warning to his Republican colleagues this week over their newfound love for the website WikiLeaks.
“These leaks are an effort by a foreign government to interfere with our electoral process and I will not indulge it,” Rubio told ABC News in a statement published Wednesday. “Further, 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.”
Rubio, who ran against Donald Trump in the Republican presidential primary, said he would refrain from discussing any information that wouldn’t have come to light without the help of the website known for publishing classified and leaked information.
“I will not discuss any issue that has become public solely on the basis of WikiLeaks,” the senator said.
Trump has shown no such reluctance, regularly attacking his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, using findings published by WikiLeaks. Many senior Republican figures and Fox News personalities who were extremely critical of WikiLeaks in the past now speak positively about it.
