It may also be of assistance for you to know Rohrabacher has now admitted he offered the patdon to assange.

 

So the wh lies yet again. 

No, Rohrabacker offered a pardon to Assange if he passed over documents that proved that the Russians had not been the source of leaked E-mails . 

  That is quite different to what the story in the OP is about

That’s what Rohrabacher claims, he is also careful in his choice of words not to directly and explicitly address the accusation made by Assange. 

 

He can of course take the stand under oath.

 

For sure he’s going to be invited to do so.

Rohrabacher cannot offer a pardon, he has no authority to pardon. 

 

So assange was correct.

I think it is fairly easy to presume, that when anything diabolical, underhanded, unethical, or illegal is reported about Trump, there is at least a possibility that it is true. After all, the man has shown himself repeatedly to have no honor, and to consider only the end, and never the means, to which something is achieved. Morality, ethics, and a code of honor are never consideration with him.

Perhaps the same could be said of you? No? I should assume otherwise? You look like a bit of a scoundrel in your photo. 😀 The American media again today is claiming Trump is in cahoots with Russia again. Have you ever considered that perhaps MSNBC and CNN, are not the good guys?

Apropo to this post, Trump just announced Ambassador Grunell as the new National Security Advisor. This is part of what makes Trump such a danger to the nation. He deliberately chose personal loyalty over competence and experience. Even Republicans are saying this job is way over his head. Another example of the bottom of the barrel selections of this incompetent President. 

 

Let's go Little Mike. You really need to beat and humiliate this guy. I suggest better debate prep!

In the name of saving the American Republic which you care about so much, you push a billionaire media mogul who literally bought his way to debate stage by paying off the DNC to break their own rules and let him in as a latecomer. The same Democrat party that shut out Bernie the socialist last time is doing it again, and you approve. 

 

The same people here support US intelligent services imbedded party operatives to wield the Intel apparatus against US citizens. Again they do it again. No, we Americans do not need people like you throwing your hat in with the totalitarians. You aren't with us man, you are against us.

oh, and everybody knows the white house will NEVER deny a true story..., you must be kidding, even when caught with their hand in the cookie jar they will deny it

The cookie jar? That implies someone who takes, or is on the take. Who is that? Joe Biden through his son Hunter, and its all coming out. The ones who got millions. And Assange? He embarrassed primarily a very crooked Democrat party.

And conversely (and more likely..) if Trump said the Earth was flat and Assange said it was round and had lots of emails from top scientists confirming its shape, you would believe Trump.

Are the Trump haters here arguing they want want Assange forever jailed? A now proved false accusation of Trump offering a Pardon seems to have set them off?

Once again the accusation has not been ‘proved false’.

Please explain why any of this story is important. The problem is Trump has so little credibility that his denial is unimportant. On the other side, his attackers have so little credibility that it is quite easy to believe they would fabricate information in order to disparage him.

 

When nobody is considered trustworthy, who cares what anyone says?

 

Why do you believe the story is true rather than false?  Do you have a sworn affidavit in front of a judge under penalty of perjury testifying the claim is 100% factually true and correct in every detail?  I don't believe either side is telling the truth.  There are likely small elements of truth on both sides, but both sides are also probably lying more than they are admitting.

What reason do you have for calling Dana Rohrabacher a liar? Why do you believe his statement that he DID NOT offer a pardon to be suspect?

This isn't exactly a new story. This is from the Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal dates Sep 15, 2017:

GOP Congressman Sought Trump Deal on WikiLeaks, Russia

California’s Dana Rohrabacher asks for pardon of Julian Assange in return for evidence Russia wasn’t source of hacked emails

A U.S. congressman contacted the White House this week trying to broker a deal that would end WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s U.S. legal troubles in exchange for what he described as evidence that Russia wasn’t the source of hacked emails published by the antisecrecy website during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The proposal made by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R., Calif.), in a phone call Wednesday with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, was apparently aimed at resolving the probe of WikiLeaks prompted by Mr. Assange’s publication of secret U.S. government documents in 2010 through a pardon or other act of clemency from President Donald Trump.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/gop-congressman-sought-trump-deal-on-wikileaks-russia-1505509918

Dana Rohrabacher himself, directly quoted, has explicitly denied carrying any message of a pardon from the President to Assange. Now what do you say about the story? The source is posted earlier.
