Assange Lawyer Claims Congressman Offered Pardon On Behalf Of Trump In Exchange For Absolving Russia In WikiLeaks DNC Case

In keeping with his lying ways, Trump says he "barely knows" the former congressman; Dana Rohrabacher.

Hardly.

Rohrabacher was a Russia loving Trumpster, who held his seat in Orange County, for quite a while, before being swept away by the 2018 Blue Wave.

Looks like Trump could find himself involved in this case.

Yes, Donnie.

When you lie and hang out with criminals, the trouble just keeps coming at ya!

Yawn. 

What case are you talking about and exactly how do you think Trump would be in trouble?

"At no time did I talk to President Trump about Julian Assange. Likewise, I was not directed by Trump or anyone else connected with him to meet with Julian Assange,” wrote Rohrabacher in a statement.'

It is interesting, that Trump only refers to the justice system being "unfair" when he is talking about criminals convicted for the same crimes he is guilty of.

Apparently, the justice system is only "unfair" and a "sham," when it comes to White, males, convicted of lying, tax evasion, fraud and political corruption.

Because those are the folks Trump pardons in bulk, while other folks, perhaps more deserving of mercy, and not of White skin tone, whose crimes don't resemble those of Trump, receive no pardons.

Anybody know how many children, caught up in Trump's zero tolerance policy at the southern border, still haven't been reunited with their parents?

Pardons/commuted sentences: 

Obama - 1900ish

Trump - 35

I just finished reading: Voices From Chernobyl.

Fantastic book.

And it gives Western readers an inkling, of how Soviet propaganda worked.

I see examples of Soviet style propaganda coming from Trump and the Cult, daily.

However, it does require a certain amount of awareness to recognize it as such.

Expect unhinged rants today, as another convicted criminal orbiting Trump is sentenced.

But Judge Jackson has shown she isn't intimidated by criminals like Roger Stone or Donald John Trump.

I met Dana Rohrabacher many times over the decades he was in office. He was almost always angry. I remember when a group of us nurses had an appointment with him when he showed up. He did not want to hear about safe nurse ratios. He said it would ruin healthcare in California. 

When we told of how safe staffing saves lives he asked us to leave. Although we had an appointment he told us we were trespassing. Six of us were inside his office and several hundred nurses were across the highway on the Huntington Beach Pier.

Thankfully we passed the safe staffing law that resulted in these regulations that save lives. ( https://govt.westlaw.com/calregs/Document/I8612C410941F11E29091E6B951DDF6CE?viewType=FullText&originationContext=documenttoc&transitionType=CategoryPageItem&contextData=(sc.Default) )

Assange Lawyer Claims Congressman Offered Pardon On Behalf Of Trump In Exchange For Absolving Russia In WikiLeaks DNC Case

 A lawyer for Julian Assange said in a British court Wednesday that former Republican congressman Dana Rohrabacher, an ally of President Trump, made an offer to the WikiLeaks founder on behalf of Trump to pardon Assange in exchange for saying that Russia had nothing to do with the 2016 hack and leak of emails from the Democratic National Committee.

Assange is in a British prison while he awaits a decision on an extradition request by the United States. The U.S. government wants him to stand trial on charges that he violated the Espionage Act by allegedly helping to obtain and then disseminating secret government documents in 2010 and 2011 relating to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan...

...   District Judge Vanessa Baraitser ruled that Robinson’s statement was admissible in court, thereby possibly dragging Trump into the proceedings.

Rohrabacher’s meeting with Assange at the embassy was no secret.

Following his trip to London, Rohrabacher told the Orange Country Register that Assange “reaffirmed his aggressive denial that the Russians had anything to do with the hacking of the DNC during the election.” https://www.ocregister.com/2020/02/19/lawyer-assange-was-offered-us-pardon-if-he-cleared-russia/?clearUserState=true )

He added: “I think it will have an earth-shattering political impact.”

In a statement posted to his website on Wednesday, Rohrabacher said, “At no time did I talk to President Trump about Julian Assange. Likewise, I was not directed by Trump or anyone else connected with him to meet with Julian Assange.”...

I was just reading an article on CNN's web site, about a NY man who threatened Adam Schiff and Chuck Shumer.

The offender is clearly a member of the Cult, as he raged about Impeachment Trial of Donald John Trump, and used Trump's nickname for Schiff.

The rank and file members of the Cult are just as deranged as their leader.

I wasn't looking to debate if Obama deserves credit for the economy.  That is tired and irrelevant at this point. 

I was simply pointing out that some posters here say the economy isn't that good while at the same time Obama and Biden are trying to take credit for it.

Obviously, you disagree with those posters.  I'm not surprised, as you are much more astute then most of the liberal members here.

So, how do you think a Sanders, Warren, or Bloomberg agenda would make things better and how?

I don't actually disagree that there are aspects of the economy that are concerning, and that Trump certainly hasn't helped reduce these concerns.

I'm not a supporter of Sanders, Warren, or Bloomberg, but as much as I disagree with various policies of theirs they would still actually be better than Trump.  As an example, the ACA (aka Obamacare) was better than doing nothing, but much not much better.  One of Trump's main campaign promises was healthcare reform, promising at least some version a plan to reduce our bloated healthcare costs, instead he's done none of what he's promised and all he's being doing is trying to make the ACA even worse, which is hard to do.  While I don't particularly agree with the plans of those three candidates, they are clearly superior to Trump's plan, or lack thereof.

I'd also be glad to see the some fiscal responsibility return to the Federal government, the fact that we now have to look to democrats to do that speaks volumes of Trump.  And while I don't believe an a full Robin Hood type "redistribution of wealth", I do think the rapid shift in overall wealth from the middle class to the wealthy needs to be curbed, and while Trump promised to do just that, in reality he's done just the opposite.

I don't think there's been any criticism of Trump's commutations in terms of shear numbers, it's been the basis for them.  The common theme has been to commute the sentences of those who have given him money or who are personal acquaintances, or secondary acquaintances, with the exception of a woman who stole over $200 million from Medicare, this from the man who claims fighting Medicare fraud is a defining policy.   Giving people political favors because they gave you money is the basic definition of corruption.
