Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida said he believes the Department of Justice and FBI have been "strategically leaking information" to the media about items seized during the raid at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home.
Rubio said, "We really don’t know. Let’s go back and understand that all of this information is coming from one side and one place, and that is sources with knowledge of the investigation. Well, who are the sources with knowledge of the investigation? The FBI and the Justice Department. And they are leaking to the media."
Rubio continued, "So generally, when there’s an investigation by the FBI or the Justice Department, they’re not even acknowledging there is an investigation, much less leaking. These people, every single day, are strategically leaking information that can’t be rebutted or in any way analyzed for a reason."

Then Rubio said a really hard and true thing that should be a wake up call for Americans:
"And that is politics, to influence the narrative," Rubio said.
"If it was really that sort of urgent problem, why didn’t they immediately demand their return? Why didn’t they come to the Gang of Eight or the Intelligence Committee heads and say, 'We’ve got this major problem on our hands?'" Rubio asked.
"Instead, what we get is these constant leaks, and the only reason to leak to the media is to influence the narrative. Which tells you this is being politicized, which is doing damage to the FBI, the Justice Department, to important institutions, to our country."
