  • Dana Rohrabacher still hasn't told Trump his 'earth-shattering' Russia news six months later

    Washington Examiner ^ | Feb. 15, 2018
    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...
  • Don't be fooled: Assad is no friend of Syria's Christian minorities

    The Hill ^ | 2017 | Syrian Christian contributors
    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...

    WASHINGTON — California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican known for his fondness of the Russian government and ties to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, said he is unable to even speak to President Donald Trump due to barriers put in place by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. Rohrabacher told Business Insider on Tuesday that Kelly and "a coalition of people in the White House" are preventing him from having a conversation with Trump that would entail clearing Assange and the Russian government from allegations they meddled in the 2016 presidential election. But Rohrabacher is unconvinced. Last month during a phone call with Kelly, Rohrabacherrequested...

    Rep. Dana Rohrabacher said someone leaked information about his call this week with White House chief of staff John Kelly, possibly to undermine his ability to speak directly with President Trump about WikiLeaks. The Republican congressman from California spoke with Kelly on Wednesday regarding his recent meeting with WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange in London, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday evening, and broached a possible trade.

    California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher spoke to White House chief of staff John Kelly Wednesday about a potential deal with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in exchange for info that exonerates Russia of hacking allegations, according to a Friday report from The Wall Street Journal. The Daily Caller first reported that Rohrabacher met with Assange in mid-August. Rohrabacher later spoke to TheDC and said that Assange could potentially be pardoned for “information that will be of dramatic importance to the United States.” Assange has been in asylum since 2012 in the Ecuadorian embassy in London following sexual assault charges in Sweden...

    I think we are about to see President Trump pardon Julian Assange. Republican Representative Dana Rohrabacher met with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London this week. Rohrabacher said that Assange “reaffirmed his aggressive denial that the Russians had anything to do with the hacking of the DNC during the election, and he has given us a lot of information. He said there is more to come. We don’t have the entire picture yet.” Rohrabacher made a shocking statement: the information would have “an earth-shattering political impact.” Assange said: “It wouldn’t be so important if Democrats hadn’t...

    WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange told a visiting congressman the secret-spilling site would like a seat at White House press briefings. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a California Republican, told the Washington Examiner he supports the primary source publisher's goal. "It didn't sound unreasonable to me," he said in a phone call from London on Thursday, two days after what he said was a three-hour meeting with Assange in Ecuador's U.K. embassy.

    Republican California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher met with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange Wednesday at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, The Daily Caller has learned. Charles Johnson, a conservative journalist, told TheDC that he arranged the meeting for Assange because the WikiLeaks chief wants to strike a deal with the U.S. so he can stop living in asylum. Rohrabacher’s spokesman Ken Grubbs told TheDC, “I can confirm that the meeting happened” and said that Johnson was in the meeting.

    [Subtitle: “I hope that my story will help you understand the methods of Russian operatives in Washington and how they use U.S. enablers to achieve major foreign policy goals without disclosing those interests,” Browder writes.]The financier Bill Browder has emerged as an unlikely central player in the ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Sergei Magnitsky, an attorney Browder hired to investigate official corruption, died in Russian custody in 2009. Congress subsequently imposed sanctions on the officials it held responsible for his death, passing the Magnitsky Act in 2012. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government retaliated, among other ways,...

    Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) says that one of his staffers was knocked unconscious during a protest at his Huntington Beach, Calif., office on Tuesday. In a statement, Rohrabacher’s office said that the protesters were part of a nationwide movement calling themselves Indivisible, which has vowed to resist President Donald Trump’s agenda by trying to occupy Republican congressional offices. Kathleen Staunton, 71, who has managed Rohrabacher's office since his first term in 1989, apparently attempted to leave through the front door to go to the bathroom, when “a protester yanked the door open, causing her to fall and hit her head."...

    Staunton was trying to exit through the front door of Rohrabacher’s office to visit a restroom when, according to Rohrabacher, a protester yanked the door open, causing her to fall and hit her head. The door also pushed over a 2-year-old child who was apparently brought along with the crowd, but she was not injured, the congressmen said. Staunton, who has managed Rohrabacher’s office since his first term in 1989, was treated by paramedics and taken to a local hospital, Rohrabacher said. ... “I am outraged beyond words that protesters who mobbed my Huntington Beach office violently knocked down my...

    Limp-fisted Democratic Party opponents have not done it. Term limits he himself championed when first elected to Congress in 1988 have not done it. (He has been reelected every two years since.) And too-close associations with slimeballs like Mike Carona, Dave Garofalo, Jack Abramoff, Jeffrey Ray Nielsen, Joseph Medawar and even his felony fraudster wife Rhonda have not done it. No, the only way the Orange County congressional delegation is finally going to rid itself of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Havana) is if Donald Trump nominates him for Secretary of State. Years ago, working at a daily newspaper, it was revealed...

Dana Rohrabacher, a top House foreign policy expert, according to sources. Rohrabacher, once a Reagan speechwriter and a House member since 1989, emerged Tuesday night as a possible Trump pick. His views jive closely with Trump's on foreign policy, immigration and global warming...

    As the current rhetoric between the Kremlin and the White House appears to be riddled with contradictions, US congressman and former Reagan speechwriter Dana Rohrabacher spoke with RT about the past, present, and future of US-Russia relations. “The relations between our countries in the last 3 years have gone from dismal to worse. It’s become hurtful for both our nations,” says Rohrabacher, adding that the communications on both sides has always been disappointingly lacking in mutual trust and cooperation. “Instead of an understanding that Russia is no longer the Cold War threat and thus they should be our friends, our...

    Weeks after accusing President Bush of "shameful" behavior over the imprisonment of two Border Patrol agents who shot an unarmed suspected drug smuggler along the U.S.-Mexico border, a federal lawmaker turned up the heat further Wednesday, suggesting the president should be impeached if either of the two men is murdered in prison. Speaking after the Federal Bureau of Prisons confirmed that agent Ignacio Ramos was assaulted by inmates in his Mississippi prison over the weekend, California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher had a warning for the White House. "I tell you, Mr. President, if these men -- especially after this assault...

    At this point, it’s abundantly clear that the US is on the wrong side in the Mid-East. Washington has always resorted to covert operations and support for unsavory characters on the way to bringing about regime change in countries whose governments aren’t deemed conducive to American interests. That’s nothing new. Usually, however, there’s at least a semi-plausible argument to be made for why Washington feels the need to support one side over the other. In Syria, there’s no such argument.
