This is the guy that also claimed ignorance regarding Russian interaction with his own election campaign, despite the preponderance of evidence that says otherwise.

Trump lies. Trump always lies.

Rohrabacher has said that Assange has evidence that would clear that country of any allegations of interference

Assange can prove a negative now?

I wonder how much Putin's paying Rohrabacher.  I bet he came cheap.

Well they're both in Putin's pocket. You think they would have bumped into each other a few times.

Are we sure Rohrabacher is a US representative?

I don't remember the federal government convicting Assange of a crime... pardon him for what? Raping someone in Sweden?
 
2017-09-25 03:24:58 PM  
Now get some trumpkins to claim ignorance.. about any one single thing. Good farking luck. Judging by fark, having a conservapedia ged in Supply-Side Jesus goes to Washington is all you need out of life, and definitely beats our being a scientist, doctor, or other kind of educated professional.

I can easily believe Kelly refused to forward that message. After he stopped laughing.

Rohrbacher wants to prove a negative, like there is some alibi that will show Russia was really at the movies when the hacking occurred.

In a break with tradition, Trump has the dragons burn you alive when you do bend the knee.

Were I Assange and in possession of evidence exhonorating Russia, I'd probably want to find a Russian agent to show it to... oh, wait.

Kelly did not deliver Rohrabacher's message to Trump, instead telling the congressman that the idea "was best directed to the intelligence community."

I wonder how much Putin's paying Rohrabacher.  I bet he came cheap.


Also, what is the value of this to America? If Assange had evidence to prove Russia influenced the election, I get why you pay for that. I also get the value to Trump personally as a propaganda tool, but it is in Trump, Russia, and Assange's best interest to have any "proof"out there.  Where is the leverage to get a pardon for this?

Well that is true. If you have evidence that either exonerates or implicates somebody in a crime, you probably should take it to the people who are investigating it. Unless your "evidence" is a bunch of bullshiat propaganda that you are going to pass off to the public to attempt to muddy the waters.

I think the claim is that this info would should WikiLeaks got the e-mail leaks from anyone but Russia, not that it exonerates his leaking of classified information, or receiving stolen goods.
 
2017-09-25 03:49:26 PM  
someone should tell Rohrabacher that Trump doesn't like "leakers".

exparrot: Rohrbacher wants to prove a negative, like there is some alibi that will show Russia was really at the movies when the hacking occurred.


Indeed. The very concept of evidence proving that Russia didn't help is absurd. Is it a note from Putin's mother saying that he is a very good boy and was not meddling? What possible evidence could there be that you never had an affair, that you never ate bacon, that you have never gone swimming naked? It's just stupid through and through.

Not according to TFA:
Though the U.S. intelligence community agrees that Russia was behind a multi-faceted "influence campaign" to disrupt the U.S. presidential race, Rohrabacher has said that Assange has evidence that would clear that country of any allegations of interference.

 My first thought was all the things he'd be called if he went to the CIA for guidance on getting Assange pardoned.

It also shows that Assange is willing to sell out leakers for a pardon. IF he did have evidence of an internal leaker from the DNC how would he get himself off the hook without giving that person away?

/my guess, he'll say it was Seth Rich

:: head shake :: I truly weep for our nation right now. People voted for this person to put him office - more than once.

Julian Assange thinks himself clever and a hero. There is a portion of the world that agrees. I don't want him here.

BTW, has anyone checked on Edward Snowden lately?

yeah the leaks from the election, but he wants to be pardoned for the before leaks. Remember Bradley/Chelsea Manning?

Trump thinks pardons are immunity idols, so he wants to pardon Assange in case someone tries to go after him later.

Assume for a second (minute, month, presidential term) that Rohrbacher is a Russian stooge of the worst kind, betraying every oath he's ever made to cover up the trivial money he got.  We all see something like that, should we suppose the FBI/Mueller doesn't.  We haven't heard much about Rohrbacher from the investigators, but would we, necessarily?  The doctor always knows the extent of the disease more than the patient.

I would think Mueller would be interested. It would make his life easier. Certainly Trump would give a lot to wrap that investigation up.

This is what you get when you hire a guy who thinks financial capital equals political capital, and the guy has neither, but he knows he only needs 18 months to get some kind of capital.  From somewhere.

The FBI warned Rohrbacher he was being aggressively recruited by the Kremlin in 2012. If they had Manafort and Page under wiretap warrants for years, I can't imagine Rohrbacher isn't being surveilled.
 
2017-09-25 05:54:53 PM  
How is this even possible?
How could anyone have a piece or even a trove of evidence that would exhonerate everything that has allegedly gone on. That's impossible unless you were at the meeting at Trump tower, you were monitoring every computer and could show that voting wasn't hacked, You were privy to every communication between any one in Russia and anyone in the campaign. On and on ad nauseum

Unless it is some secret tape of Putin saying "no we didn't do anything to influence the elections" I guess that would change my mind.....WTF
