The Democrats and the mainstream media must be held accountable for lying to the American people for over a year.
Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), recently appeared on Fox News‘s Hannity to discuss his trip to England where he met with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. When asked specifically about the Russia collusion narrative, Rep. Rohrabacher said, “And I think this Russian narrative that you’re talking about, this idea that is [an] unrelenting, sinister story about how Trump colluded with the Russians in order to steal the election, is a total con-job. It’s a fraud. And it’s masking a power grab…”
Rep. Rohrabacher further explained, “‘Cause what they are doing is trying to undermine the ability of the person the voters voted for; they are undermining his ability to assume the power and authority and appointments that the president of the United States is given authority to do by the voters.”
WikiLeaks, a non-profit intelligence agency, published thousands of emails on July 22, 2016 that were pilfered from the Democrat National Committee (DNC) email server. The emails contained damaging information for the Democrat Party. It revealed that they were colluding with mainstream news agencies to help candidate Hillary Clinton at the expense of her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
The Democrats hired private cyber security firm CrowdStrike to investigate the DNC server after the leak. No official government intelligence agency was granted access to the DNC server. CrowdStrike concluded that the server was hacked, and a group of Russian hackers known as Fancy Bear were responsible. American intelligence agencies relied on the CrowdStrike report and concluded that Russia was responsible for the leak.
However, from the beginning, Julian Assange denied that Russia, or any other government actor, was responsible for leaking the information. Instead, Assange heavily insinuated that murdered DNC staffer, Seth Rich, was their source, according to Fox News.
Now, after meeting with Julian Assange, Rep. Rohrabacher is convinced that the Russian narrative is a huge scam.
“So, let me be clear,” stated Sean Hannity, summarizing Rep. Rohrabacher’s admission. “It is possible that the media has lied to the American people and the Democrats have lied to the American people for nearly a year. And they’ve disrupted the flow of information and manipulated the flow of information in this country for nearly a year. What is the percentage certainty that this has all been a lie?”
“99 percent,” replied Rohrabacher, expressing extreme confidence.
If Rep. Rohrabacher is correct, the American intelligence community would be humiliated, and lose whatever trust they have retained since being caught lying about the Iraq war and existing stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction. Every major intelligence agency has concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election by sharing DNC emails with WikiLeaks.
To date, there isn’t a shred of evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian entities to affect the 2016 General Election. Do you believe that Democrats are responsible for advancing a false narrative to hurt President Trump’s agenda?
Additionally, if Rep. Rohrabacher is correct, it would relieve President Trump of the nuisance pressure exerted by the specter of Russian collusion. American-Russian relations have noticeably suffered since the rise of the Russian collusion allegations, and American-Russian relations are at an all-time low.
This false narrative needs to be put to rest, both for the well-being of our country and for the well-being of US-Russian relations.
