Julian Assange’s lawyer says that, in 2017, Comrade Trump offered to pardon Assange if he’d agree to say that Russia had nothing to do with the 2016 hack of DNC emails. Trump really wants to be the Kremlin’s employee of the month, huh?
Allegedly, Former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Kremlin) served as The Russian Usurper’s go-between in extending the offer. The meeting, which was reported at the time, was also attended by Charles Johnson, a
rat-fucker political activist, an alleged white supremacist now banned for life on Twitter.
In a statement, press secretary Stephanie ‘3-Olives’ Grisham claimed
“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. This is probably another never ending hoax and total lie from the DNC.”
Just a quick trip to the Twitter Way Back Machine…
Dana Rohrabacher has been a great Congressman for his District and for the people of Cal. He works hard and is respected by all – he produces! Dems are desperate to replace Dana by spending vast sums to elect a super liberal who is weak on Crime and bad for our Military & Vets!

Congratulations to Dana Rohrabacher on his big California win. We are proud of you Dana!

Oh, and for shits and giggles:
Grisham denied that Trump knew anything about Rohrabacher, despite the fact that an administration official confirmed in 2017 that then-Chief of Staff John Kelly had spoken to Rohrabacher about a deal to free Assange.
It would might be believable if Comrade Stupid hadn’t 1) claimed daily that Russia had nothing to do with the 2016 Goat Rodeo hacking and that his BFF Vlad is a man whose word we can trust, and B) if he didn’t insist that he can do whatever the hell he wants.
Look, if Supid thinks it’s swell to extort another country for personal gain, then obvs offering pardons in exchange for little favors like this would be totes cool.
Just ask Bill Barr.
