On Thursday, the conservative website Breitbart.com did a story on a "a new mysterious website exposing" Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
The website, "www.rubioamnestyplan.com," seeks to expose Rubio's record on immigration as insufficiently conservative.
On Wednesday evening, BuzzFeed News noticed the website. A Trump aide, Dan Scavino, had tweeted out a link to the site.
On Wednesday evening, a search of the link to the website on Twitter showed that only Scavino had tweeted the link at that time.
Here's a screenshot of the search on Twitter of the site on Wednesday night showing only Scavino tweeting it:
Here's Scavino's original tweet, since retweeted by Trump. Before Trump retweeted it, there were almost no retweets.
BuzzFeed News searched internet records on Wednesday evening after seeing only Scavino had tweeted it. Records show the domain was registered this week.
The Trump campaign didn't return a request for comment, Scavino didn't respond to tweet last night asking if he made the site.
