Let's See How This Plays Out; Assange v. Trump Ed.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange plans to claim during an extradition hearing that the Trump administration offered him a pardon if he agreed to say Russia was not involved in leaking Democratic National Committee emails during the 2016 U.S. election campaign, a lawyer for Assange said Wednesday.
...
At a preliminary hearing held Wednesday in London, lawyer Edward Fitzgerald said that now-former Republican congressman, Dana Rohrabacher, visited Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in August 2017.

Fitzgerald said a statement from another Assange lawyer, Jennifer Robinson, recounted “Mr. Rohrabacher going to see Mr. Assange and saying, on instructions from the president, he was offering a pardon or some other way out, if Mr. Assange ... said Russia had nothing to do with the DNC leaks.”
Trump's spokesweasel denies this, of course, but given that almost every word that has come out of the Trump administration, whether from his mouth or from his people, have been proven to be lies, it will be interesting to see what is true in this matter.

You can't believe anything from a deep state democRat like Julian Assange.

So okay, Mr. Assange. You won't say the Russians weren't involved in the election. Would you at least consider saying there was no quid pro quo with Ukraine? Well then, how about saying you saw the biggest crowds in history at the Trump Inauguration?

Yours crankily,

Tod, really? Assange is an Australian who has both Aussie and Ecuadorian citizenship.

Since he's not an American citizen, he can't be what you claim he is.

Please put down the Trump Kool-Aid.

So does this count as an admission by Assange that he did get the stolen files from Russia? If so, he'll never get anything out of Fergus, and will probably be killed in a drone strike instead.

Sorry comrade, forgot the tags. A jest. But watch for a trumpite cultist to say it and mean it.
