‘Putin’s favorite congressman’ setting up Trump meeting to pass on Wikileaks info on DNC hack

Published

on

After meeting with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, a California Republican known as “Putin’s favorite congressman” says the White House is setting up a “rendezvous” so he can pass along Wikileaks information to President Donald Trump.

“It is my understanding from other parties who are trying to arrange a rendezvous with myself and the President, it is being arranged for me to give him the firsthand information from (Assange),” Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) said on the Sean Hannity show per a CNN recording.

“I’m trying to get this out in the public now where we can get this Julian Assange thing straightened out so that people know that it wasn’t the Russians that hacked into the system, and that’s not how this information was released,” he said of the DNC hacking.

Rep. Rohrabacher hung up on a CNN reporter who called for comment.

In 2012, Rohrabacher was taken to a secure room in the Capitol for a warning from the FBI that Russian spies where targeting the Republican lawmaker.

“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told a gathering of reporters.

“No leaks — this is how we know we’re a real family here,” Speaker Paul Ryan responded to McCarthy’s allegation.

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
