Shocking revelations from a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing unveiled that Russia targeted Marco Rubio for hacking after he announced his intention to seek re-election to the U.S. Senate.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) revealed at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Thursday that IP addresses from unknown locations in Russia targeted his presidential campaign staffers shortly after he announced his intention to seek re-election.
“In July of 2016, shortly after I announced that I would seek re-election to the United States Senate, former members of my presidential campaign team, who had access to the internal information of my presidential campaign, were targeted by IP addresses with an unknown location within Russia,” Rubio told the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Earlier in the day, national security expert Clinton Watts had told Rubio that Russia targeted the Florida Senator with a disinformation campaign during his unsuccessful presidential run.
Watts said that Russia sought to “sink the hopes of candidates more hostile to Russian interests” even during the presidential primaries.
While no direct evidence appeared that would confirm a Russian attempt to sabotage Rubio’s re-election, defeating the Republican Senator would have removed a unyielding opponent of Moscow’s aggression in Washington.
