Journalist Who Met With Assange: ‘I Am Willing to Testify Before Any Government Body’

Published

on

Charles Johnson, the journalist who arranged and participated in the meeting between Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and Julian Assange, is so convinced that there was no Russian involvement in the leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee that he is willing to go to jail to make the point.

The historic meeting marked the first time that a US Congressman has ever went to meet with the publisher in person.

“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.”

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.

“Thus if he comes up with that, you know he’s going to expect something in return. He can’t even leave the embassy to get out to Washington to talk to anybody if he doesn’t have a pardon,” Rohrabacher told TheDC.

“I think the president’s answer indicates that there is a wall around him that is being created by people who do not want to expose this fraud that there was collusion between our intelligence community and the leaders of the Democratic Party,” Rohrabacher added.

Though the United States has never filed charges against WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, President Donald Trump has the ability to grant a preemptive pardon for any crimes he may have committed — and he should. Preemptive pardons are rare, but not unheard of — with one being granted most famously by President Ford to Richard Nixon soon after he replaced him in the White House.

Assange entered the Ecuadorian Embassy in London on June 19, 2012, where he applied and was granted political asylum. Since that time, the building has been encircled by police waiting on standby to arrest him.

In 2016, after 16 months of investigation, the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (UNWGAD) concluded that Julian Assange is the victim of arbitrary detention. Not only did the group, made up of lawyers and human rights professionals, release an opinion that Assange should be released, they reported that he should be compensated by the governments of Sweden and the United Kingdom for “deprivation of liberty.”

When asked for comment, Assange referenced the quote in my Twitter bio, which is from the (fantastic) comic book series Transmetropolitan:

“You’re miserable, edgy and tired. You’re in the perfect mood for journalism.”

HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist

Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.

Published

on

New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.

Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.

Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.

More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.

Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.

Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.

Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
