(National Sentinel) False Narrative: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who has said all along that the Russians did not provide him the documents related to the Clinton campaign that he leaked last year, now says he’s willing to trade evidence of this to authorities in exchange for a pardon.
As reported by PJ Media, Assange has already made the offer, but President Donald J. Trump told reporters earlier this week he has “never heard” of it.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., told The Daily Caller that aides in the White House are not permitting the deal to go through, as much of ‘official Washington’ either doesn’t believe Assange or considers him a national security threat after previously leaking information about NSA, CIA, and U.S. government operations.
“I think the president’s answer indicates that there is a wall around him that is being created by people who do not want to expose this fraud that there was collusion between our intelligence community and the leaders of the Democratic Party,” Rohrabacher said.
“The congressman spoke to chief of staff John Kelly two weeks ago about the potential deal with Assange,” The Daily Caller reported. “The Wall Street Journal reported that Kelly told Rohrabacher to bring the information to the intelligence community.”
“This would have to be a cooperative effort between his own staff and the leadership in the intelligence communities to try to prevent the president from making the decision as to whether or not he wants to take the steps necessary to expose this horrendous lie that was shoved down the American people’s throats so incredibly earlier this year,” Rohrabacher said.
The congressmen met with Assange at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, where he has been in exile for years. But, as reported by One America News Network he said he has yet to see the information that Assange claims to have.
Rohrabacher said that he needs Trump to be on board with a preemptive pardon before the information can be exchanged.
The U.S. intelligence community has repeatedly claimed that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign last year, then leaked the information to WikiLeaks in order to help Trump win the election. It’s important to note that throughout its 11-year history, WikiLeaks has never been proven wrong.
The president has also called the narrative false. So, too, have former officials with the Trump campaign, including longtime Trump associate Roger Stone. He told OANN recently that the allegations are false.
“I am aware of no evidence whatsoever of collusion by the Russian state or anyone in the Trump campaign or anyone associated with Donald Trump,” he told reporters earlier this week after testifying behind closed doors, and reportedly not under oath, before the House Intelligence Committee to answer questions related to the Trump-Russia narrative.
Before he appeared, Stone released a statement criticizing Democrats on the panel for making “false” and “irresponsible” statements and claims regarding the alleged collusion.
“I am most interested in correcting a number of falsehoods, misstatements, and misimpressions regarding allegations of collusion between Donald Trump, Trump associates, the Trump Campaign and the Russian state,” he wrote.
“I view this as a political proceeding because a number of members of this Committee have made irresponsible, indisputably, and provably false statements in order to create the impression of collusion with the Russian state without any evidence that would hold up in a U.S. court of law or the court of public opinion.”
As for Trump being in the dark about all of this, Rohrabacher said, “This would have to be a cooperative effort between his own staff and the leadership in the intelligence communities to try to prevent the president from making the decision as to whether or not he wants to take the steps necessary to expose this horrendous lie that was shoved down the American people’s throats so incredibly earlier this year.”
His comments have been carried in a number of media outlets, but it has recently been reported that Kelly is blocking certain news articles from reaching the president’s desk.
“This happens in every administration, and it’s a great disservice to the president,” said the congressman, who once worked as a speechwriter in the Reagan administration.
“I am confident that if the president is permitted to know that this avenue is open to him to debunk the horrible lie that was told to the American people about him stealing the election with the help of the Russians… that I think the president will accept it if he’s permitted to know,” he said.
