Forging even ONE passport is a federal felony. McCain didn’t know that.

Rubio didn’t know that this new item was put into the bill, thus negating the previous law.

That is why Rubio screwed up.

“Rubio didn’t know that this new item was put into the bill, thus negating the previous law.”

This new item does not negate the previous law. This new item would be in addition to the previous law. If this new provision passed (either in the Rubio bill or in some other law), forging one passport would still be a federal felony (”Forgery or false use of passport”), but forging three or more would now be a separate, additional federal felony (”Trafficking in passports”). Rubio’s answer was correct - CNS was wrong.
