Congressman Rohrabacher Wants Julian Assange to Get a White House Press Pass

As for the Russia hacking story he says: '99 % it's a total lie'

Rohrabacher recently returned from a London meeting with Assange, and is reportedly trying to negotiate a deal with the White House which would allow Assange out of his house arrest.

Via the Washington Times:

Mr. Rohrabacher recalled the request after spending roughly three hours Wednesday meeting with the WikiLeaks chief at his residence in London’s Ecuadorian Embassy.

“He hoped that WikiLeaks — an award-winning journalistic operation — might be granted a seat in the White House press corps,” Mr. Rohrabacher told The Hill afterwards. “As a former newsman myself, I can’t see a reason why they shouldn’t be granted news status for official press conferences.”

“It didn’t sound unreasonable to me,” Mr. Rohrabacher told the Washington Examiner in a separate interview published Friday.

He also told Sean Hannity that the Russian collusion delusion is a 'total con-job, a fraud, and that it is masking a power-grab.

Hannity: Do you believe that this Trump-Russian collusion narrative will be proven false and do you believe he holds the key?

Rohrabacher: The answer is absolutely ‘yes.’ And I think this Russian narrative ..., this idea that is unrelenting, sinister story about how Trump colluded with the Russians in order to steal the elections is a total con-job. It’s a fraud. And it’s masking a power grab…

Right on, Congressman. America needs more like you.

And by the way, Hannity has been destroying the Democrats and their friends in the Republican party over the whole Russia thing. Between him and Tucker Carlson, it's a scorched earth policy on this - so Russia friends, things aren't looking all bad.
