House Speaker John Boehner on David Rivera: "We're waiting to see how this plays out"

Asked at a press conference today about the drumbeat of stories involving inquiries into Miami Republican Rep. David Rivera's finances, House Speaker John Boehner said the House is "waiting to see how this plays out.

He prefaced his remarks by noting, "As I understand it, the allegations against Mr. Rivera, they don't involve any of his congressional service. These are activities that took place before he was elected."

Earlier, Marco Rubio -- a close Rivera associate -- sought to keep a distance, reiterating that he only knows what he's read in the press.

"When something like that is happening, you generally let the process work itself through, I have confidence in our judicial process," he said.
