Not surprisingly, the mainstream media chose not to focus on that angle and decided instead to focus all of their efforts on branding Rohrabacher as a Russian spy. That said, here is how Rohrabacher recounted the details of the meeting with Assange to The Hill:
"Our three-hour meeting covered a wide array of issues, including the WikiLeaks exposure of the DNC emails during last year's presidential election," Rohrabacher said, "Julian emphatically stated that the Russians were not involved in the hacking or disclosure of those emails."
Pressed for more detail on the source of the documents, Rohrabacher said he had information to share privately with President Donald Trump.
"Julian also indicated that he is open to further discussions regarding specific information about the DNC email incident that is currently unknown to the public," he added.
