Republican California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher made a controversial trip in August to meet the infamous Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he has been forced to live for years due to literal fake charges in Sweden that were filed in an obvious attempt at hurting a man that was directly exposing some of the biggest intelligence secrets ever.
At the time Rohrabacher told The Daily Caller that, "Assange promised him information that reveals Russia is not behind the hacking and leaking of Democratic National Committee emails during the 2016 election, as U.S. intelligence officials have claimed."
The DC report continued:
Rohrabacher said that a pardon would likely have to occur for Assange to give up this information about the source of the DNC emails. Assange has long maintained that he would never reveal a source, but Rohrabacher said that Assange now "wants to get out of the Ecuadorian embassy."
