Charles Johnson: I Will Testify That Michael Isikoff Printed Fake News About My Meeting With Assange

Published

on

Journalist Charles C. Johnson is taking aim at Yahoo reporter Michael Isikoff, who is now at the center of the growing Memo-Gate scandal.

 

Johnson says that he has “damaging information” concerning Isikoff, who wrote a hit piece on Johnson after the GotNews founder and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher met with Wikileaks chief Julian Assange at London’s Ecuadorian embassy. Johnson and Rohrabacher met with Assange to learn details of the Wikileaks DNC email release, which Johnson claimed was absolutely NOT a hack by Russian operatives. Johnson and Rohrabacher have also tried to obtain a presidential pardon for Assange, so that he may leave his place of confined exile and come to the United States to provide his data to lawmakers.

Isikoff claimed in his August Yahoo piece that Johnson was unwilling to cooperate with the Senate Intelligence Committee, but that claim conflicts with Johnson’s statement to Big League Politics that he was willing to testify before any government body regarding his meeting with Assange.

Isikoff wrote an article that was presented alongside the debunked Christopher Steele dossier in order to obtain a FISA warrant on President Trump’s team. However, it turns out that British spy Steele — the originator of the dossier — leaked information directly to Yahoo News for Isikoff’s article. This fact was not presented to the FISA court, which presents another in a series of fabrications or non-disclosures by the anti-Trump conspirators that could prove obstruction of justice or perjury on their part.

Here is the section from Rep. Devin Nunes’ bombshell memo that pertains to Isikoff’s role in the sordid affair:

“2) The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016, Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff, which focuses on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow. This article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News. The Page FISA application incorrectly assesses that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News. Steele has admitted in British court filings that he met with Yahoo News—and several other outlets—in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington D.C. in 2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS where this matter was discussed.”

Cassandra Fairbanks interviewed Johnson for Big League Politics following Johnson’s meeting with Assange. Fairbanks reported:

“Assange proved without a shadow of a doubt who was involved in the 2016 DNC leaks,” Johnson told Big League Politics. “I am willing to testify before any government body about it.”

Johnson added, “and I am willing to go to jail to make the point.”

When asked if he had been contacted by any authorities or threatened with jail in relation to his meeting with Assange, Johnson stated that he had not.

“They want it to go away so we won’t embarrass the intelligence agencies,” Johnson said.

Rohrabacher reportedly met with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly two weeks ago, providing him with details about his meeting with Assange in August, and requesting that Assange be pardoned in exchange for the information.

On Sunday, President Donald Trump was questioned about the offer — and told a reporter that he has “never heard that mentioned.”

“I’ve never heard that mentioned, really, I’ve never heard that mentioned,” Trump told a reporter at a New Jersey airport on Sunday.

Johnson is now claiming that Kelly is blocking the information and offer from reaching the president.

“Kelly is blocking this from getting to the president’s attention. I would fire Kelly for that,” Johnson told BLP.

Johnson is now calling for someone with the president’s ear to alert him of what has been going on.

“I have learned that John Kelly is blocking Congressman Dana Rohrabacher from telling the President the truth about the Wikileaks publication of the DNC. Please alert the president,” the well-connected journalist wrote on Facebook.

Rohrabacher told the Daily Caller that he believes the request for a preemptive pardon is justified.”

WATCH: Joe Biden Reads Teleprompter Incorrectly: “I Got to the Senate 180 Years Ago”

That kind of experience is unmatched.

Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.

Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.

It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.

However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
