Co-Sponsored Legislation

Senator Rubio is an original co-sponsor of S.RES.489, a resolution that calls for the appointment of an outside special counsel to investigate the recent national security leaks from the Obama administration. The recent leaks of classified and highly sensitive information on US intelligence operations present a grave threat to our nation’s national security interests.

As a member of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Senator Rubio wants to ensure that these leaks are investigated in a thorough and timely manner. As he recently wrote with Senators Dan Coats (R-IN) and Richard Burr (R-NC) in an op-ed in The Washington Post, “These leaks are inexcusable, and those responsible should be held accountable. FBI and CIA investigations are a good start, but more must be done to prevent intelligence disclosures of this magnitude.”
