Sen. Marco Rubio dropped a bomb question to the former FBI director that caught him off guard.
Rubio asked why the detail of Trump not being under investigation seemed to be the only detail which did not leak.
Comey’s response: “I don’t know.”
Rubio’s full question:
“This investigation is full of leaks left and right. We’ve learned more from the newspapers than we do from our open hearings. Do you wonder why of all the things in the investigation that the only thing that has never been leaked was the fact that the president was not personally under investigation, despite the fact that both Democrats and Republican and leadership of Congress knew that and have known that for weeks?
Comey’s full answer:
“I don’t know. I find matters that are briefed to the gang of eight are pretty tightly held in my experience.”
