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.
