While Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., admits President Donald Trump is justified to be “annoyed” by the cloud of Russia and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, it is “best” for the president and the country if the investigation concludes unimpeded. “I believe it’s in the best interest of the president and of the United States of America and the American people for that investigation to run the course for all the truth to come out,” Rubio told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace. “And I think it’s the best thing that could happen for him, and I think it’s the best thing that could happen for the country.”Rubio did acknowledge the president has reason to be frustrated, particularly amid President Trump’s tweets this week calling for recused Attorney General Jeff Sessions “to stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further.” “Obviously he is annoyed by that investigation continuing to go on because it’s about him – and he believes and has said repeatedly and emphatically that he did not collude with the Russians,” Rubio told Wallace. “I’m limited to what I can say because the Senate is still doing our investigation, but I am comfortable in saying this: If there was evidence, strong evidence of collusion, I guarantee it would have been leaked by now.” The best-case scenario for all, including the president and especially the American people, is for the “truth” to be revealed, Rubio concluded. “But let’s wait for the process to play itself out, and I think that’s what should happen,” Rubio said. “Mueller shall continue and finish his work and the truth should come out, and I think that’s in the best interest of everyone.”
