    A lawyer for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has told a London court that her client was indirectly offered a “win-win” deal by President Donald Trump that would see him avoid extradition to the U.S. if he revealed the source of a leak of documents from the Democratic Party before the 2016 election. Assange, who didn’t reveal the source of the leak of the Democratic National Committee emails, is fighting efforts by the U.S. to extradite him to face an array of charges related to his work at WikiLeaks. Jennifer Robinson, who has represented WikiLeaks for a decade, relayed to the...

    Both the White House and former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) have denied offering WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange a pardon in exchange for his denying Russian involvement in stealing emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in 2016. One of Assange’s lawyers, Edward Fitzgerald, said in British court on Feb. 19 that Rohrabacher made the offer on behalf of President Donald Trump when visiting Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in 2017. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham called it “complete fabrication and a total lie.” “The president barely knows Dana Rohrabacher other than he’s an ex-congressman,” she said. “He’s...

    The disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has sparked controversy and the spread of media rumors across the world, including the doubtful information from Turkish sources and wrongful accusations against the Saudi General Consul’s son in Istanbul.According to US media expert Patrick Poole, American media has been just as involved in reporting leaks from multiple unreliable sources.Poole noted that Yahoo News published an article Friday quoting Khaled Saffuri, one of Khashoggi’s associates, that said President Trump's criticism of journalists may have inspired the Crown Prince to have Khashoggi "murdered."The Daily Beast also quoted Saffuri discussing Khashoggi’s efforts to gain freedom...

    Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) said Monday that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was “cowardly” for announcing that he would not defend Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, and would not campaign for his election. Ryan made his announcement on a conference call with fellow members of the Republican caucus on Monday morning, just hours after Trump had turned in a strong debate performance against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in St. Louis on Sunday night. “Leaders are supposed to stand firm and solid in moments of crisis,” Rohrabacher told the Orange County Register. “Instead, he’s in a panic. It’s not good...

    Former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher denied that he spoke with Julian Assange on behalf of President Trump about a pardon. Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, claimed Wednesday that he had been told by Rohrabacher that he could be pardoned by Trump if he stated that Russians were not connected to the hacking of the Democratic National Committee's emails. In a statement, Rohrabacher denied that he promised a pardon to Assange on behalf of Trump. “At no time did I talk to President Trump about Julian Assange. Likewise, I was not directed by Trump or anyone else connected with him to meet...

    The Russian woman who was indicted on charges of acting as an unregistered agent of Moscow reportedly socialized with an associate of then-candidate Donald Trump's during the final months of the 2016 presidential campaign. Citing documents and testimony that was provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee and later described to the newspaper, The Washington Post reported Friday that Maria Butina had many interactions with former Trump campaign aide, J.D. Gordon, over email. Gordon served as the Trump campaign's director of national security for six months until departing in August 2016 for a role on Trump's transition team. The Post reported...

    Very few people took notice when far left Governor Jerry Brown signed the changes in AB1921 into law two years ago. As a result, California lost 7 of its 14 Republican House seats this election cycle. Ballot harvesting is illegal in most states. In Texas, New York and Pennsylvania they arrest people for ballot harvesting. Orange County, traditionally a conservative enclave in Southern California turned all blue after Democrats found hundreds of thousands of votes post election day. Republicans such as Mimi Walters, Dana Rohrabacher and Young Kim were all ahead election night only to lose their races after late...

    Representative Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican fixture in California who represented Orange County for 15 terms, has lost his bid for re-election. His defeat underlines the party’s setbacks in a part of the state that was long a symbol of its political dominance. The Associated Press called the race on Saturday, with Harley Rouda receiving 52 percent of the vote to Mr. Rohrabacher’s 48 percent. Mr. Rouda, 56, is a former Republican turned Democrat who became a symbol of the Democratic efforts to win back Congress this year. Mr. Rohrabacher, 71, was viewed as particularly vulnerable because he defended Russia in...

The poll, conducted by Thomas Partners Strategies, shows Rohrabacher with the support of 50.7% of likely voters in the 48th congressional district, compared to Rouda’s 41.6%.

    With the midterm elections just days away, there’s little indication that California is seeing a “blue wave” of Democratic votes, at least in the early returns of vote-by-mail ballots — and in some key races that will help determine control of the House, Republican voter response has been strong. There are still a lot more ballots to come in, cautioned Paul Mitchell, vice president of Political Data Inc., which supplies voter information to a variety of political campaigns. But so far, according to a mail ballot tracker he runs, Republican votes are keeping pace with the number of Democratic ballots....

Everytown for Gun Safety, which was founded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is targeting 15 suburban districts highlighted in the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's "Red to Blue" target list, according to the news outlet.The districts, which are mostly outside of cities, include communities in New Jersey, Georgia, Virginia, Colorado, Michigan and more, it added. “Suburban swing districts are going to make this election, and gun safety resonates extremely...
  • Congressmen give Paul Manafort donations to hospital, pregnancy center

    The two members of Congress who received campaign contributions from convicted Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort have selected charities to receive the funds, their spokespeople tell the Washington Examiner. Reps. Andy Harris, R-Md., and Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., are the only current members of Congress to receive contributions from Manafort, who pleaded guilty to foreign lobbying and witness tampering crimes Friday after being convicted of tax and bank fraud last month. Harris, who received $500 during his first campaign for Congress in 2008, will give the funds to the Pregnancy Center North, campaign coordinator Nicole Beus said. The Baltimore-based center says...

    A congressman who doubts that Russia hacked Democratic emails during the 2016 election has been unable to speak with President Trump despite a full year attempting to broker a pardon for WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange in exchange for information disproving Russian culpability. It’s unclear why exactly the White House has kept Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., at an arm’s length, and whether the decision is an example of uncharacteristic restraint by Trump or a result of interference by deputies fearing reputational or legal hazards. Rohrabacher told the Washington Examiner he believes that fear of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation has...

    One of President Trump’s outspoken supporters in Congress has still been unable to reach him to discuss “earth-shattering” information shared by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange six months ago in London. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., met with Assange in Ecuador's British Embassy in August and said afterward that Assange can prove Russia didn't hack Democratic emails during the 2016 election, as U.S. spy agencies allege. But Rohrabacher has been blown off repeatedly, and despite months of effort hasn't been able to arrange a meeting or phone call with Trump. "I suspect it’s partly because of the number that’s been done on...

    During a markup of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher asserted that the Assad regime was “the protector of the Christians” in Syria. As Syrian Christians who grew up in Syria, we would beg to differ. Hundreds of innocent Christians seeking freedom have been tortured to death in Assad’s jails or shot to death by his brutal thugs – including the activist Bassel Shehadeh, who was killed at a protest, then killed in spirit because Assad forces prevented his friends from going to church to pray for his soul. Human rights lawyer Khalil Maatouk has been detained in...

    The House Intelligence Committee is set to interview Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and British publicist Rob Goldstone on Monday as part of its ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, CNN reported. Wasserman Schultz resigned as head of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) last July after leaked emails showed party officials appeared to favor Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Wasserman Schultz has also denied knowing about an arrangement for the DNC to help fund a dossier containing salacious allegations about President Trump. Clinton’s campaign and the DNC reportedly paid millions to a law firm involved...
