Trump’s insisting his campaign was spied on is part of ‘propaganda machine’: Democrat

“As far as what I have seen to date, it appears that there was an investigation not of the campaign, but of certain individuals who have a history that we should be suspicious of, that predate the presidential campaign of 2015, 2016,” Rubio said on “This Week.” “And when individuals like that are in the orbit of a major political campaign in America, the FBI, who is in charge of counterintelligence investigations, should look at people like that.”

The president has claimed repeatedly there was an FBI “spy” in his presidential campaign.

Rubio said he thinks the president and his lawyers are “reacting … they’re responding to what, what they’re facing and the things that are happening to them.”

He added, “If there is an FBI informant or any sort of inappropriate action that’s been taken targeting a political campaign, the president’s or any, we want to know about it and it should be punished.”
