Rohrabacher, Whitehouse Call On Assange Leaked To Press

Rohrabacher, Whitehouse Call On Assange Leaked To Press Disobedient Media previously reported events surrounding Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in the wake of his meeting with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London last month. Rohrabacher claimed that the Wikileaks editor in chief had assured him of the existence of proof against the Russian hacking narrative.

This sequence of events has been churned into a misleading narrative casting Rohrabacher as a direct intermediary between Trump and Assange.

The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday on the content of the leaked conversation between Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and Whitehouse Chief of Staff John Kelly. The call was said to include a discussion regarding a physical storage device that holds evidence disproving Russian hacking allegations. An important aspect of the Wall Street Journal’s coverage of the leaked conversation is the statement that: “Assange would probably present a computer drive or other data-storage device that Mr. Rohrabacher said would exonerate Russia in the long-running...
