    Rohrabacher, Rand Paul Met To Discuss Assange Giving Up WikiLeaks Source To US Government

    Republican California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher met with Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul last Thursday and discussed leveraging Paul’s close relationship with President Donald Trump to let the president know that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is willing to divulge information about the source of leaked emails.

    Rep. Rohrabacher told The Daily Caller about the meeting during a phone interview Tuesday.

    “Rand Paul says the president calls him every now and then. I wanted to make sure that when [Trump] calls him that [Paul] knew enough about the Julian Assange offer that I found something of value for the president to look at,” Rohrabacher told TheDC.

    He added that Paul was “very open to the idea of mentioning it to the president next time the president called him.”

    Sen. Paul’s office declined to comment. Rohrabacher said that Paul was joined by a few of his staffers, and that the California congressman brought along top aide Paul Behrends and conservative journalist Charles C. Johnson.

    Rohrabacher met with Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London in August in a meeting that Johnson claimed to have arranged...

    ... The meeting with Paul came a week after Rohrabacher told TheDC that top White House aides are blocking information about the WikiLeaks founder’s offer to prove that Russia was not behind the hacking and leaking of Democratic National Committee emails during the 2016 election. The U.S. intelligence community has alleged that the Kremlin was, in fact, involved....

    Interesting story, but why is the creepy Charles C. Johnson involved?

    Trump still ignoring Rohrabacher? http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/29/politi...ous/index.html

    He was trying to set up a meeting in August.

    Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher said Monday that a "rendezvous" is being set up between him and President Donald Trump to relay information he received from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange about the hack of the Democratic National Committee last year.

    Rohrabacher, who is considered to be among the most pro-Russia members in Congress, met with Assange earlier this month and claims Assange told him that Russia was not involved in the hacking. Rohrabacher said after the meeting that he wanted to brief Trump on what Assange told him. Appearing on the Sean Hannity radio show Monday afternoon, the California congressman said that meeting was in the process of being set up.

    "It is my understanding from other parties who are trying to arrange a rendezvous with myself and the President, it is being arranged for me to give him the firsthand information from (Assange)," Rohrabacher said.
    Blames it on Kelly:

    John Kelly is blocking a pro-Russia congressman from talking to Trump

    WASHINGTON — California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican known for his fondness of the Russian government and ties to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, said he is unable to even speak to President Donald Trump due to barriers put in place by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

    Rohrabacher told Business Insider on Tuesday that Kelly and "a coalition of people in the White House" are preventing him from having a conversation with Trump that would entail clearing Assange and the Russian government from allegations they meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

    Several government agencies expressed "high confidence" that Russian government agents directly attempted to interfere in the 2016 election, according to a January report from the Director of National Intelligence.

    But Rohrabacher is unconvinced. Last month during a phone call with Kelly, Rohrabacher requested a pardon of Assange in exchange for evidence that would clear the fugitive's name.

    Weeks later, he is still unable to speak directly with Trump, but said that "there are others involved who are talking to Trump" about Assange.

    Rohrabacher added that he is imploring a similar strategy in talking to Assange, who currently lives in asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

    "I have not spoken to [Assange] directly, but we're going through a period of time where a lot's getting done one person removed in a lot of different ways," he said.
    Hold on a sec- this week he says he never spoke with Assange yet in August he says he met face to face with him.

    met with Assange earlier this month and claims Assange told him that Russia was not involved in the hacking.

    The optimists built this country and made it great- not the fearful. Fear can only destroy.

    I am Zippy and I approve of this post. But you don't have to.

    There must be somebody in Trumps inner circle that is keeping him and Rorabacher from meeting. Somebody like Trump would jump on the chance to stick it to the media.

    Default update - Not quite accurate

    Assange says this is not entirely correct.

    Update:

    Assange disputed some of Rohrabacher’s comments in a tweet Wednesday.

    Disgraceful reporting. WikiLeaks never has and never will reveal a source. Offers have been made to me–not the other way around. I do not speak to the public through third parties. — Julian Assange

    He didn't say that. Reporters use "[ ]" when people don't mention exactly who or what it is that they are talking about but it is important for the context of the story for people reading to know what or who is being talked about so they insert the name or person or thing in to the sentence themselves and indicate it is not part the actual quote by offsetting it with brackets. In this case however, the reporter or editor who did that clearly screwed up. The unnamed person Rohrabacher was talking about not having talked to directly was Trump, not Assange.
