Julian Assange: Trump 'offered pardon for Russian Federation denial'

Bennie Garza | 20 February, 2020, 19:41

Baltasar Garzon, the Spanish coordinator of Assange's team, reiteratedhis client's plan to claim during his extradition hearing that the Trump administration offered him a pardon.The alleged condition was that Assange must agree to say that Russian Federation was not involved in leaking Democratic National Committee emails during the 2016 US election campaign.

Emails embarrassing for the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign were hacked before being published by WikiLeaks in 2016.

At Westminster Magistrates' Court, Assange's barrister, Edward Fitzgerald, referred to a witness statement by former Republican US Representative Dana Rohrabacher who visited Assange in 2017, saying he had been sent by the president to offer a pardon. "However, when speaking with Julian Assange, I told him that if he could provide me information and evidence about who actually gave him the DNC emails, I would then call on President Trump to pardon him".

District Judge Vanessa Baraitser said the evidence is admissible.

While then-Congressman Rohrabacher's meeting with Assange is already public knowledge, until now it has been reported he did so on his own rather than under the orders of President Trump.

In a statement to CNN, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham issued a typically outrage-laden denial: "The President barely knows Dana Rohrabacher other than he's an ex-congressman". He's never spoken to him on this subject or nearly any subject. "At no time did I offer a deal made by the President, nor did I say I was representing the President".

U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election to try to help Trump win, in part by hacking and releasing emails embarrassing to Clinton. "This is probably another never ending hoax and total lie from the DNC".

If extradited to the States, Assange faces 18 charges that could see him spend the rest of his life behind bars. If found guilty in the US, Assange could face up to 175 years in the slammer.

Trump is obviously still the president even after an investigation into those allegations, but if Assange's legal team is to be believed, he tried really, really fucking hard to distance himself from any suggestion of colluding with a foreign power - and allegedly offered one of the America's most-wanted men a Get Out Of Jail Free card in exchange for some positive testimony. The full hearing on the extradition is set to start on Monday. His extradition hearing will begin next week.
