Rubio: Would Be "Huge Political Mistake" To Pardon Paul Manafort

|

Sen. Marco Rubio disagrees with Rep. Matt Gaetz, who recently called for President Trump to pardon Paul Manafort. Rubio says this would be a "huge political mistake" and warns the president not to do it in an interview on CNN's 'State of the Union.'

MARCO RUBIO: Yes, it would be a mistake, and I would strongly counsel against it. I don't think that, in my view, the presidential pardon power was not created for these sorts of purposes. I just think it would be the wrong thing to do. I think it would be a huge political mistake as well, and I hope that doesn't happen. That would be my position on it.
