The Young Turks' reporter Jordan Chariton made an interesting discovery about Marco Rubio in the latest Wikileaks release.

You may remember that earlier this week, Marco Rubio bucked the trend of Republicans and came out against Wikileaks. Now we may know why.

Marco Rubio in the Wikileaks Emails

In the emails, Hillary Clinton staffers wrote about seeing Rubio with a big hedge fund manager:

Wow! Great Intel. Great seeing you. And thanks for hanging in in the tough days. Means a lot. Best to Amalia.


Interesting sighting at our residence in Chicago. Walking in lobby from dinner. Marco Rubio leaving , escorted by Ken Griffin from Citadel - Griffin had small event for him at residence. super pac money to follow- Thought you should know. Great couple of weeks for Hillary. Amalia and I enjoyed lunching with you in Chicago.

Chariton believes that this may show that Rubio was unlawfully colluding with his Super PAC -- a serious offence.

Earlier this week, Rubio said "as our intelligence agencies have said, these leaks are an effort by a foreign government to interfere with our electoral process, and I will not indulge it." He also said "Further, I want to warn my fellow Republicans who may want to capitalize politically on these leaks: Today it is the Democrats.

Tomorrow it could be us."

Could it be possible that Rubio was aware that he may be in the leaks and decided to get out ahead of them?

Russia Today wrote the following about Griffin:

Hedge fund manager Griffin has been named as one of the financial backers of the Future 45 organization which supports Donald Trump's presidential run. Future 45 produced the aforementioned video criticizing Clinton over the Benghazi attack in which four US citizens, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed.
