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

Published

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.

Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.

Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!

Published

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
