The lawyer for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claimed in court that President Trump offered his client a pardon if he released information showing that the Russians had nothing to do with the DNC leaks from 2016.
British authorities are determining whether or not Assange will be extradited back to the United States, where he has been charged with 18 felonies, 17 of which come under the Espionage Act. He is accused of helping former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning obtain illicit information for damaging leaks in 2010.
Assange’s attorney Edward Fitzgerald, QC, alleges that former Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher acted as a liason on Trump’s behalf in 2017. He allegedly told Assange that the President would give him a pardon if he was able to testify that Russians were not responsible for the 2016 DNC leaks.
Assange’s four-week extradition hearing was set to begin on Feb. 24, but his lawyer was able to get it delayed for several months. The first part of the case will begin on the scheduled date and proceed for one week, and the second part will begin on May 18 and proceed for three weeks.
Fitzgerald claimed during a preliminary hearing that a witness statement would reference “Mr. Rohrabacher going to see Mr. Assange and saying on instructions of the President offering pardon or some other way out if Mr. Assange said the Russians had nothing to do with the DNC leaks.”
They will attempt to use Manning’s case to argue that Assange should stay in Britain and not be extradited into the U.S., where the federal deep state will attempt to make an example out of the famed information liberator.
“Chelsea Manning’s plea and mitigation to the military commission has key passages which we will be relying on so we would seek to extract that and key press reports so the court has key materials,” Fitzgerald said in court.
“What we say is it is an abuse to seek extradition for a political offense so that is really part of the abuse argument,” he added.
Assange has previously stated in media appearances that Russians did not provide him with any of the leaks that his agency released during 2016 as the U.S. presidential campaign played out.
“Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false. We can say that the Russian government is not the source,” Assange said in Nov. 2016 in an interview with an Australian broadcaster.
“Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President,” Assange told Sean Hannity during a Fox News interview, explaining the genesis of the Russia lie.
“We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,” Assange told Hannity.
If Trump offered a pardon to Assange for telling the truth in an official capacity, that is an encouraging sign for supporters of legitimate journalism and draining the swamp.
Disgraced Former CIA Chief John Brennan: Biden White House Will Use Homeland Security to Crush Trump ‘Insurgency’
A Soviet-style regime is taking shape.
Disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan is promising a Big Brother crackdown against Trump supporters throughout society following the successful installation of the Biden regime by the deep state.
Brennan made the psychopathic, authoritarian declaration during an appearance on MSNBC.
“This is the most relaxed I’ve been in the course of the many inaugurations I’ve watched,” Brennan said, reveling in the fact that he got away with all of his crimes without repercussions.
“I know looking forward that the members of the Biden team who have been nominated or have been appointed are now moving in laser-like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements that we have seen overseas,” he said.
Brennan is laying the groundwork to treat President Trump’s supporters like ISIS militants, which Democrat officials have been openly pining for many years to accomplish. He named “religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, and even libertarians” as the type of groups that will be targeted, profiled and ultimately deprived of their 1st Amendment rights during the Biden administration.
“I really do think that the law enforcement, Homeland Security, intelligence, and even defense officials are doing everything possible to root out what seems to be a very, very serious and insidious threat to our democracy and our republic,” he said.

Big League Politics has reported about the many crimes of Brennan, who was influential in setting up the Russia-gate scam that ultimately failed in unlawfully overturning the results of the 2016 presidential election:
Former CIA director and Deep State-linked career bureaucrat John Brennan praised the willful insubordination of the “intelligence community” when speaking at an event at the National Press Club with other military-industrial complex figures on Thursday…
Brennan’s remarks make it clear that the career national security bureaucratic elite couldn’t care less about fulfilling their traditional role of carrying out the democratically elected President’s policy. The Deep State instead seeks to impose an unpopular and stale agenda against the wishes of the President, preventing the American people any real say in directing the national security policy of their own country…
The use of the phrase ‘Deep State’ by Brennan is telling. For years critics of the permanent Washington, D.C shadow government were told such a thing didn’t exist. For the intensely partisan former CIA director to not only describe the intelligence community apparatus with such a phrase- but to even endorse them as such- reveals how fundamentally disconnected legacy institutions such as the CIA and FBI are from democratic oversight.
It’s hard to paint the Trump administration as anything but a colossal failure with criminals like Brennan gloating and reveling in the destruction of America. Trump did not even have the courage to pardon whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Julian Assange on his way out of office. The deep state wins again.
