Media Jump on Assange Court Statement – A Pardon for Truthtelling? – UPDATE Rohrabacher Responds…

If you stay out of the weeds and look at the bigger picture it is clear to see the media are all-in, desperate to retain the Big Lie that Russia was responsible for hacking the DNC servers and releasing the DNC emails.  The reason is simple: the ‘Russia hack of the DNC’ is the foundation for the Russia election interference narrative.

Any review, discussion or investigation (Durham) that starts to question the fraudulent foundation is immediately controversialized.  Today is no different.

(Via NBC) It is being reported that lawyers for Julian Assange noted in court arguments that U.S. officials had offered a potential pardon in exchange for Assange telling the truth about how he obtained the DNC emails.  Immediately the media goes bananas.

President Donald Trump offered a pardon through an intermediary to Julian Assange if the WikiLeaks chief agreed to say that Russia was not involved in hacking emails from Democrats during the 2016 presidential election, a lawyer for Assange reportedly told a court in London on Wednesday.

Assange’s lawyer Edward Fitzgerald made that claim during a hearing related to the U.S. request to extradite Assange from the United Kingdom to face more than a dozen criminal charges in the United States, according to The Daily Beast news site.

[…] The formal extradition hearing for Assange, an Australian national, is due to begin Monday. At Wednesday’s court session, District Judge Vanessa Baraitser reportedly said the evidence about a purported pardon offer is admissible at that hearing.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, when asked about the claim of a pardon offer by Trump, said, “The President barely knows Dana Rohrabacher other than he’s an ex-congressman.”

“He’s never spoken to him on this subject or almost any subject. It is a complete fabrication and a total lie,” Grisham said. “This is probably another never ending hoax and total lie from the DNC.” (read more)

Rohrabacher responds:

The media outrage is somewhat silly. Julian Assange said from the outset he did not receive the DNC emails from Russia; and the emails did not come to him by way of a hack.

It is well known the DNC emails came from a “leak” from inside the DNC.

The Podesta emails, another source of wide disinformation, came from John Podesta falling for an ordinary phishing effort. Neither John Podesta nor the DNC emails came from a “hack”.

However, because the “Russia hacked the 2016 election” was/is needed in order to perpetrate the Trump-Russia collusion and election interference narrative, the media are determined to attack, ridicule and marginalize anyone or anything that starts to expose the original (fraudulent) narrative.

On April 11th, 2019, the Julian Assange indictment was unsealed in the EDVA.

From the indictment we discover it was under seal since March 6th, 2018:

(Link to pdf)

On Tuesday April 15th, 2019, more investigative material was released. Again, note the dates: Grand Jury, *December of 2017* This means FBI investigation prior to….

♦The FBI investigation took place prior to December 2017, it was coordinated through the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) where current FBI chief legal counsel Dana Boente was U.S. Attorney at the time, while also holding jobs in Main Justice.

♦The grand jury indictment was sealed from March of 2018 until after Mueller completed his investigation, April 2019.

Why did the DOJ wait?

What was the DOJ waiting for?

Here’s where it gets interesting….

The FBI submission to the Grand Jury in December of 2017 was four months after congressman Dana Rohrabacher talked to Julian Assange in August of 2017: “Assange told a U.S. congressman … he can prove the leaked Democratic Party documents … did not come from Russia.”

(August 2017, The Hill Via John Solomon) Julian Assange told a U.S. congressman on Tuesday he can prove the leaked Democratic Party documents he published during last year’s election did not come from Russia and promised additional helpful information about the leaks in the near future.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a California Republican who is friendly to Russia and chairs an important House subcommittee on Eurasia policy, became the first American congressman to meet with Assange during a three-hour private gathering at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where the WikiLeaks founder has been holed up for years.

Rohrabacher recounted his conversation with Assange to The Hill.

“Our three-hour meeting covered a wide array of issues, including the WikiLeaks exposure of the DNC [Democratic National Committee] emails during last year’s presidential election,” Rohrabacher said, “Julian emphatically stated that the Russians were not involved in the hacking or disclosure of those emails.”

Pressed for more detail on the source of the documents, Rohrabacher said he had information to share privately with President Trump. (read more)

Knowing how much effort the CIA and FBI put into the Russia collusion-conspiracy narrative; and knowing how absolutely critical it was to justify all the surveillance that had taken place prior to the 2016 election; it would make sense for the FBI to take keen interest after this August 2017 meeting between Rohrabacher and Assange; and why the FBI would quickly gather specific evidence (related to Wikileaks and Bradley Manning) for a grand jury by December 2017.

Within three months of the grand jury the DOJ generated an indictment and sealed it in March 2018. The EDVA sat on the indictment while the Mueller probe was ongoing.

As soon as the Mueller probe ended, on April 11th, 2019, a coordinated effort between the U.K. and U.S. was executed; Julian Assange was forcibly arrested and removed from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and the EDVA indictment was unsealed (link).

As a person who has researched this three year fiasco including: the ridiculously false 2016 Russian hacking and interference narrative; the “17 intelligence agencies”, Joint Analysis Report (JAR) needed for Obama’s anti-Russia narrative in December ’16; and then a month later the ridiculously political Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) in January ’17; the timing against Julian Assange was far too coincidental.

It doesn’t take a deep researcher to see the aligned U.S/U.K motive to control Julian Assange because the Mueller report was dependent on Russia cybercrimes, and that narrative is contingent on the Russia DNC hack story which Julian Assange disputes.

The Weissmann/Mueller report contains claims that Russia hacked the DNC servers as the central evidence to the Russia interference narrative in the U.S. election. This claim is directly disputed by WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, as outlined during the Dana Rohrabacher interview, and by Julian Assange on-the-record statements.

Now Watch This Brief Interview:

.

The predicate for Crossfire Hurricane was Russia interfering in the 2016 election.

The predicate for the FISA warrant against U.S. Carter Page was a Russia investigation, that included the Steele Dossier as evidence, and the use therein was contingent on Russia interfering in the 2016 election.

The predicate for Robert Mueller’s investigation was specifically due to Russian interference in the 2016 election; and the possibility of Trump-Russia collusion.

All of these predicate claims are demonstrably false or wildly overstated using the most tenuous of stretched interpretations. This is what John Durham is looking at.

The fulcrum for the media to push the Russia interference narrative is the Intelligence Community Assessment; and the primary factual evidence claimed within the ICA is that Russia hacked the DNC servers. A claim that is only made possible by relying on forensic computer analysis from Crowdstrike, a DNC contractor.

When it comes to reviewing all of the predication aspects, the CIA holds a massive conflict of self-interest in upholding the Russian hacking claim. Thus we see members of the CIA and intelligence apparatus within media stories outraged over being questioned.

Without the initiation by the CIA, the FBI also is exposed. Thus the FBI holds a massive interest in maintaining the Russia hacking (Crowdstrike) claim.

Additionally, all of those foreign countries whose intelligence apparatus participated with John Brennan and Peter Strzok also have a vested self-interest in maintaining the Russia hacking and interference narrative.

Most worrisome, Julian Assange is the only person with direct knowledge of how Wikileaks gained custody of the DNC emails; and Assange has claimed he has evidence it was not from a hack – but rather from a leak by a source inside the DNC.

This Russian “hacking” claim is ultimately so important to the CIA, FBI, DOJ, ODNI and U.K intelligence apparatus; and right there is the most transparently obvious motive to shut Assange down as soon as U.S. and U.K. intelligence officials knew the Mueller report was going to be made public.

    If Seth Rich was the “leak” inside the DNC to wikileaks, then the reason he leaked the e-mails is important. It had nothing to do with Trump. He was a Bernie supporter and was angry that Hillary and the DNC were stealing the nomination from Bernie.

      The “official” story was that Seth Rich was killed in a robbery. Except, he didn’t get robbed. And the FBI said they don’t know about Seth Rich. Except, they did. And as just came out through the work of Judicial Watch, FBI suppressed information that they did know about it.

      The Russians did not (materially) interfere in our elections. The DNC and the Deep State did.

If there was interest in getting him here back then it was to snuff if they could. Obviously Wikileaks thought so too, or at least bad faith, because they released a tranche of CIA weapons grade malware for public to see not long after that.

                  Thanks for that Patrick, I had to look. So in December 2010 Assange was arrested in London for the charges in Sweden. He got out on bail. In May of 2012 the English Supreme court decided Assange needed to be arrested and sent to Sweden. The next month Assange went to seek asylum at the Embassy of Ecuador.
                  3 years later, Sweden dropped the charges against Assange for rape, August of 2015.
                  Everything was moving along nicely,
                  In July of 2018 Ecuador started getting pressure from England to resolve their issues with their tenant Assange. That didn’t go well. Australia then sent Assange a passport so he could go home, the end of 2018. On April 11th, 2019, England arrested Assange for failure to appear in court and gave him 50 weeks in jail. That was his crime in England. The Mueller report came out 7 days later on the 18th of April, 2019.
                  Timing is everything.

    This is all old news. I remember hearing about this back in 2017 and being angry that John Kelly didn’t pass on Dana Rohrabacher’s information. I thought President Trump should have pardoned Julian Assange and was angry that it didn’t happen. But according to the media this is big breaking news and that President Trump, contrary to their own previous reporting, was behind the pardon offer in the first place? An offer that was only suggested by the congressman and was never acted on in any way.

    I also wonder if Assange’s lawyers cut a deal with the deep state. Claim that President Trump did something wrong and we will improve your conditions. Given how horribly Assange has been treated, I wouldn’t be surprised if he took that deal.

      I share your concerns

      Why wasn’t the Assange-Rorabacher story and Assange’s claim “not Russia” fully exposed in August 17? To the point where it would now be the accepted narrative among all but the stubbornest of the “Resistance”.

      Because the story was never exposed fully then, NOW the MSM gets to front-run the narrative and pretend it’s new news and it’s all about the scandal of “Assange offered a bribe by the Trump Administration”

      To a large extent it seems to me that the Left just play the game better
      They establish the public narrative by front-running stories such as this
      Any proper response then becomes “a coverup” or “illegal influence”

      I appreciate that the Mueller obstruction-sham immobilized all the President’s men and actions for years

      But why couldn’t this story have been blown into the open in Aug 2017 when Rorabacher brought the information back?

      Yeah, maybe Solomon reported it and tweeted a bit at the time
      And I know that the Left controls the MSM

      But I’m talking about blowing it wide open in the press – Pres or spokesperson at the podium with big poster boards of the language – so that it couldn’t be ignored.

      I also appreciate that some things must be kept hidden for some undetermined time for some undisclosed (to us) reasons.

      But this incident really illustrates the risks of not getting there first to establish the narrative before it gets front-run and co-opted.

      How does that happen? What about a claw back? What about suing them to force the restitution of taxpayer funds?

      I hope Blago from Chicago founds a non-profit activist group to lead a national campaign to strip prosecutorial immunity where bad faith prosecutions are brought, where malice animates prosecutorial behavior, where civil rights are trampled, where a “reasonable person” standard can be used to make prosecutors individually liable for their misconduct in a manner no different than would be so for any other American profession.

Is it just me or is it not a good thing that the American people have as much information as possible before casting their votes?

  5. Our country has been though 3 years of hell, and Assange could have stopped it on day one if he had provided the proof of how he got the information. Assange let this happen, and has been laughing his azz off while President Trump’s supporters have been horrified at what the ‘resistance’ is capable of. I say hang Assange, and drag his carcass though the streets to show we are sick of being played..

    What happened to the Dead Man Drop?

    Assange could’ve saved himself alot of trouble of he would’ve come forward the day after Seth Rich was dumped in the heart of DC for all the world to see!

    Instead, he sits in solitary being slowly driven insane by Deep State…of course he did not want to identify a source but the SOURCE WAS DEAD! Seth Rich should be remembered as a US Republic Martyr if true!!

    Don’t feel this is 2020 Monday morning quarterbacking as Wikileaks protects source identities but many have been discovered and then prosecuted…

      It’s possible Seth Rich was a source for Wikileaks, but not the source of the DNC emails. It’s possible he was a potential source of different information, including evidence having to do with a lawsuit over Exit Polling data during the primaries, a lawsuit that was filed the week he was murdered. It’s also possible Assange doesn’t know exactly who leaked the DNC emails, even if he knows how it came to him and from where. He has offered to show members of Congress and our intelligence agencies how he knows it was not Russia.

      In his interview with the Dutch television program Nieuwsuur, Assange indicated that he offered a reward for information about Seth Rich’s murder because his U.S. sources were alarmed. He said, “I’m suggesting that our sources take risks and they become concerned to see things occurring like that… We have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States. Our sources are, you know, our sources face serious risks. That’s why they come to us, so we can protect their anonymity.”

      I don’t think his interview established that Rich was the DNC leaker. But it did establish that his U.S. sources saw Seth Rich’s murder as a possible threat to their own safety if their anonymity was violated.

    Interesting. Waldman was meeting with Assange in 2017 around the same time he was texting Warner, at the same time he was texting Ohr, meeting with Steele and Deripaska, and then Assange ends up being indicted.

    Timelines.

    ‘The Podesta emails, another source of wide disinformation, came from John Podesta falling for an ordinary phishing effort. Neither John Podesta nor the DNC emails came from a “hack”.’

    One minor quibble… Podesta was specifically targeted with a phishing attempt for the purpose of leaking his emails (apparently). I would call that a “hack”. Phishing is a type of “social engineering” in the sense of hacking people’s behavior to gain access and information. We don’t know who was behind that, though.

    Not sure where some comments are coming from tonight re Julian Assange.. Getting ahead of the story the Lame Stream Media (LSM) is. Assange’s hearing for extradition is this week. And I believe the story about the Attorney saying something – when it comes from the LSM – “reporting” about as much as I believe the Earth is flat.
    What I do believe is that the CREEPIEST, POWER HUNGRY/ MONEY AND POLITICIAL STAKE HOLDER”S on this planet HAVE BEEN SCREAMING FOR ASSANGE to be NUKED. FOR SO LONG NOW. GEEZ. TALK ABOUT ISSUES and THE FERVOR to SINK THEIR CLAWS INTO this man. FANGS COMING OUT. JUST LIKE VAMPIRES.Twitter shut down the Wikileaks Twitter account this week.
    But that’s just my perspective. Had to play this song for myself tonight. Might be crushed re what happens with Assange in the days ahead But I am so happy his EXISTENCE is NO LONGER BEING IGNORED. Am enjoying the freak out. MAXIMUM SUNLIGHT PLEASE.

    Two things:

    1. This is the absolute reason that Bill Binney was not allowed by that obama witch to testify in his trial. Bill would have cremated the hacking hoax and shown that it was IMPOSSIBLE for Russia to have hacked those emails. Bill Binney is feared by the MSM and anybody remotely connected to the DNC or Democrats because they know he’s the ticking time bomb that shatters the 100% BS story. He’s blacklisted everywhere and they’re twisting themselves into pretzels preventing him form ever becoming known to the public.

    2. I HAVE BEEN SAYING IT. I do not trust Boris Johnson anymore than I would trust a convicted pedophile to babysit. And here is more proof that I’m right if it is true that Trump is readying a pardon for Assange, which would be the most fantastic thing he could do to destroy the democrats and their crusade to destroy him. Assange is the third-rail for the conspirators. He’s a stake through their heart.

    And I had just posted that OAN reported that there was a very heated conversation two days ago between Johnson and Trump with Trump slamming the phone down on him. And it involved Boris Johnson REFUSING to extradite Assange. Now we know why. GCHQ was head deep in spying on Trump and Boris Johnson at that time was the Foreign Minister WHO HAD TO APPROVE IT!

    Which he absolutely did. Johnson is a snake! An interview that I saw with Edward Snowden, he said Britain GCHQ has BY FAR the most sophisticated equipment and spy technology of anybody in the world, “including the United States.” They were doing it because no judge here would give them the warrant. Brennan, Rice, Clapper and obama requested it and renewed it several times each time the 3-month term had expired, with the eager and willing conspirator approval’s signature–Boris Johnson.

    Johnson can not POSSIBLY let Julian Assange tell what he knows.

    I will repeat—BORIS JOHNSON IS A SNAKE !

    Champagne,
    Wonderful analysis. I am glad you laid all that out, it saved me some typing.
    Sadly our American friends (including the majority on this great site) have been fooled into believing Blundering Boris is a conservative, with similar tendencies to their great President.
    You on the other hand sum him up perfectly – a snake.
    One point you did not make is the ridiculous poisoning of the Serkils (?) by British spies from Port on Downs and Boris and Teresa May blaming the Russians almost before they had inhaled the nerve gas.
    If that was not an attempt by Britain to tip the scales against President Trump nothing was.
    Keep up the good work.

    It defies logic that no one followed up on Dana Rohrabacher’s meeting with Assange, I cannot understand it at all.
    One can only hope that all Assange’s files, including stuff that may not have been published are safe somewhere and still retrievable. Then Bill Binney or some other person with similar trusted expertise can examine them and prove they’ve not been altered or messed with.

      The only thing we have Assange on, as far as I can tell, is he is fighting against being extradited to the US.
      He has been charged with computer fraud or some such by the bent democrats/fbi/cia/injustice department.
      In the distant past the only thing they had him on was a subsequently dropped charge of rape in Sweden. Sweden wanted to extradite him. He resisted because he maintained they would ship him out to America. Hence the Marxist Ecudorian president at the time gave him refuge in their London embassy. Once the Ecuadorian leadership changed, they bowed to pressure from your injustice department to get the British police to put him into solitary.
      Basically it must be your Attorney General who wants him in the US. I would say he has not been found guilty of any crime.
      But then as in the case of Mannafort, Flynn, Coen and anyone associated with your President who needs a crime to lock someone up.?

    All of DC at the time was in on it 2016/2017. IMO
    That’s why the silence during Mueller Russia, Russia, Russia!
    EVERYBODY (including RINO’s, Military, Deep State, DC elites etc.)

    Assange thought he was safe. He was in contact with Seth Rich’s family. He NEVER reveals a source without their permission (the source). With Rich’s death, that fell on the family.
    They were silenced (more than likely), or clammed up (didn’t want to destroy the Democrat Party) so Assange never talked.
    He has openly said he received the emails from a leak…aka Seth Rich. He just won’t confirm his source.

    Once US unsealed indictment in 2019 (see CTH above), he was jailed awaiting extradition.
    IMO, NOBODY wants to see him in the US, except us Deplorables and PDJT.

    His hearing interestingly, is one week, then 3 weeks in May (May 18)
    WHY???
    This week… BUILD THE NARRATIVE. Assange is crazy, AND President Trump is abusing his power again (this time pardon for a lie…which we all know is the truth)

    THREE MONTHS!!! To nonstop belittle Assange, badger PDJT and run the false narrative, because now the REAL story is slowly being exposed. They could not hide it forever.
    His death before the end of the trial would be an unfortunate (not really) consequence, and they can blame his death on the evil US trying to destroy free speech.

    GOAL? Russia hacked US and PDJT is making up a story. Julian Assange will never be extradited unless our Great POTUS can jail break him somehow. He will die in the UK if the Globalists and Corruptocrats get their way. They can extend this trial forever. The UK government has already spun their population to think extradition will be BIG BAD US imprisoning the world’s freedom fighter for life.

    They always play the game better than us.
    WHY???
    Easier to play a game when you don’t follow the rules,

    Something I have never understood about this whole DNC file release. Why was this assumed to affect the 2016 election? Yes, it showed the DNC removed Bernie for Clinton, but that’s an intramural squabble and people were pretty suspicious before Wikileaks confirmed it.
    I saw nothing in the leak dump that showed DNC campaign tactics.
    Some nasty comments about people sure, but nothing as bad as Hillary’s deplorable basket comment.
    So tell me, why was this hyped as so very consequential? Only because it gave the IC/FBI an excuse to hunt Trump.
    Absolutely none of the MSM has ever discussed why we should care about a bunch of smarmy, unsavory emails?

      It is not the content (which helped submarine Hillary because they showed her campaign and the DNC conspired against Bernie. Bernie supporters were mad and didn’t vote for Hillary) Podesta’s emails were hacked at the same time (he was phished is the theory)

      The emails were leaked by a Bernie supporter (Seth Rich) to Wikileaks (Julian Assange). Seth Rich was murdered at 2am in DC a short time later(a “robbery” where nothing was taken, he was shot in the back)
      They used Crowdstrike to fabricate the “Russians hacked the DNC” and tried to tie this fabrication to the Trump campaign. (the FBI says Wikileaks got the emails from Russia)

      The DNC “hack” was part of the set up of PDJT Russian conspiracy Mueller hoax.
      If you can prove it was a leak and not a “hack”, the WHOLE story unravels.

      Welcome to CTH.
      It is clear as mud trying to explain 4 years of blatant corruption in a few sentences.
      The Obama administration and the HRC campaign corrupted the 2016 election, AND tried to overthrow a duly elected President while trying to cover up their corruption.

      This is the place to be for the REAL info. I think I started around Jan 2016.

    The Story they are putting out can and should be debunked by Hannity as he is the one that talked to Assange before anyone else ever did and Assange told him in that interview that it was not the Russians and even at that time there is no way the President would have done anything to bring Assange here I don’t know what happened with Rudabacker but he has already changed his story so how can any one believe anything he says now. We were all aware at the time of him talking to ASSANGE that he was not able to get the information to the President because of being stopped by the Chief of Staff at the time. So there is no way this story is true

      One thing I have noticed with the MSM and the Democrats is this. Since Seth Rich was murdered ANY mention of his name brings an immediate hostile reaction from them. I think Hannity came close to being fired over it as he has never brought his name up since (about 2 yrs ago). There’s a reason these swamp rats and media are having that response. If Seth Rich was the leak and was murdered by the DNC for it, the Democratic party is done. Nobody, not the MSM, hollywood etc can openly condone or side with the Democrats again if that were to be exposed.

    Here is another way of looking at this hacked emails thing that nobody brings up….

    If Russia hacked the email then why would they release them out to the public? Here’s an example.

    Say I’m a business owner in a large city that is currently in the campaigning stages of the election for mayor. The two candidates are Mr Red and Mr Blue. I don’t have anything on Mr Red, but I have an embarrassing photo of Mr Blue. I agree with Mr Reds policies, but I stand to gain more if Mr Blue wins. Why because I have the photo (dirt) to blackmail him with. If I want that photo I have to hold value then Mr Blue must win the election, if not, it is worthless. I also do not want Mr Blue to know of what I have until after he wins the election so there is more for him to lose. Also if he doesn’t go for the extortion (exposes himself) and still wins now I’m an enemy. I endorse and support him, he wins I pull out the photo and get whatever I want.

    Russia would not use material they have on Hillary to help Trump. They would hold it and try and help Hillary win.
