BuzzFeed’s McKay Coppins has a new book coming out. You might have heard something about it as it’s being pushed everywhere though it’s light on actual new reveals.
McKay wasn’t kind enough to give me a credit or to send me a copy of the book gratis but I’m a source in it.
Don’t believe me? Here’s an extract from the Washington Post.
In fact I was giving McKay a head’s up. It was an act of consideration, not conspiracy, in case you’re wondering.
One of the bigger non-reveals reveals is that Rubio likes to sleep around. This is well known in Tallahassee and even D.C. circles but I guess now everyone else is talking about it.
Firm Rubio hired determined infidelity rumors about him "lacked concrete evidence." Whew! https://t.co/fbCktUXV4o

I wonder if the Rubio PAC that got $40,000 to look into allegations Rubio was sleeping around was the same PAC that received a $300,000 bribe from a casino connection of David Rivera’s?
Coppins insists that these Rubio “zipper” rumors come from the Bush campaign. They don’t. The Bush campaign didn’t know of a lot of them when I spoke to my friends there.
In fact McKay and I spoke about them in 2013 and again in 2014. I’d be happy to produce all of our correspondence, if necessary, though I find that a tad tacky. I’ve been a source behind a lot of BuzzFeed articles even though they’ve made things up about me in the past. McKay even connected me to Ben Smith when I wanted to offload some research I had done.
I may also be the source behind the entirely bogus story that Donald Trump is behind Breitbart when I said to McKay that there’s a billionaire backer of Breitbart. Also, so what if Donald Trump is letting Breitbart reporters fly on his plane?
Here’s what really happened. McKay promised his publisher some salacious stuff about Marco Rubio. He called me numerous times but couldn’t actually get it together. It got so annoying that I may have even messed with him a little. I’m told he didn’t even go to Tallahassee where the Rubio rumors originated. (Rubio has a thing for pretty lobbyists.)
No one has ever vetted Rubio. That’s why I’ve sent out private eyes to investigate his past.
We’ve looked into the bribe he was paid through disgraced congressman David Rivera (who is currently under FBI investigation), the rest of the credit cards (no, not his personal ones, the other ones under his control–the ones he traveled with the girls with), the in-laws connection to organized crime, among many others. I even have the entire oppo file from the Scott Walker campaign.
I’ll have more to reveal on Rubio as we get closer to the material being relevant. Why publish now? It’s not like he’s rising in the polls. Why not wait until the debates or until the January caucus?
Let’s be clear here: I have the names of the women, I have the addresses, and I have the evidence. It is a little funny that people who can’t do the work always seem to say it can’t be done.
But seriously why not wait until all the Establishment people come out in favor of Rubio so that it’s that much easier to screen would be candidates in a Cruz administration?
Here’s what really happened: McKay promised his publisher some salacious stuff about Marco Rubio but couldn’t deliver because he doesn’t have the sources or allies to do it.
