Sen. Marco Rubio came out swinging Wednesday at anonymous White House employees who revealed how President Donald Trump called Russian President Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on his re-election — despite being warned not to do so by national security.

"No I don't like that he did it, but you know what I like even less is that there's someone close to him that's leaking this stuff out," Rubio, a Florida Republican, said Wednesday in an interview on CNN.

"If you don't like the guy, quit. But to be this duplicitous and continue to leak things out, it dangerous."

On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that Trump "did not follow specific warnings" from his national security advisers when he congratulated Putin.

That warning included a section in his briefing materials stating in capital letters "DO NOT CONGRATULATE," officials familiar with the call told the Post.
