GOP congressman reportedly offered Trump a deal on absolving WikiLeaks' Assange

GOP congressman reportedly offered Trump a deal on absolving WikiLeaks' Assange | 15 Sept 2017 | A Republican congressman perceived as sympathetic to the Russian government tried to strike what he described as a "deal" with the White House to get WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange out of legal trouble with the United States government, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday. In exchange, Assange would produce alleged evidence that Russia did not provide the hacked emails released by WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential election, the newspaper said. In a phone call with White House chief of staff John Kelly on Wednesday, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Ca., described a possible agreement to pardon Assange or "something like that," the Journal reported.
