Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) was dragged into this Russian mess by the Democrats, so he’s finally speaking out.
On Tucker Carlson Tonight, Rohrabacher told Carlson that, “This whole thing with the Russians supposedly [being] responsible for these emails – this is a fraud.”

Somehow the Democrats are still using the Russia “scandal” as a distraction from more important issues, and as a ball and chain with which they can hamper their biggest competitors.
Rep. Rohrabacher is a top political opponent of the Democrats, and thinks that the root of the Democrat’s accusations is his support of President Trump’s perspective on Russia.
Like the president, Rohrabacher argues it would be ideal if we could work with the Russians to defeat ISIS. It’s a simple, common-sense idea that Democrats cannot seem to wrap their heads around. He’s no friend to Russia, he was one of President Reagan’s speech writers after all, but he’s kept up with how the globe has changed since the Cold War.
Rep. Rohrabacher, as the chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats, has to take a logical position on dealings with Russia. It is reasonable that he wants to focus on our primary threat, terrorism. Ideally, he would be able to focus on this, and his other work for his constituents, without having to deal with conspiracy theories from the leftists.
But, seeing as Rep. Rohrabacher was dragged into this, he took it seriously. To get to the root of the Russian “scandal” Rohrabacher actually took the time to visit Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
The Hill reported on the meeting between Assange and the Congressman, and quoted Rep. Rohrabacher as saying, “Julian emphatically stated that the Russians were not involved in the hacking or disclosure of those emails.” Assange has long been clear that Russia was not behind the leak.
To Tucker Carlson the Congressman added, “quite frankly there’s no reason for [Assange] to be lying about it.” That’s exactly right. In fact, there’s a good reason Assange would be discouraged from lying about this issue. Right now, Wikileaks has a record of one hundred percent accuracy. He wouldn’t want to tarnish his organization’s perfect reputation.
The Congressman also mentioned that Assange says he has more information about the DNC leak, which he is willing to discuss. As the recipient of the DNC emails, Assange knows the truth, and that must terrify the DNC.
The DNC’s deputy communications director could not come up with a good excuse not to believe Julian Assange, simply dismissing him and dismissing Rep. Rohrabacher as “Putin’s favorite Congressman.”
No matter how many knowledgeable and logical people speak out against the DNC’s conspiracy theories, and against their mid-slinging at good Congressmen, they refuse to stop. There is absolutely no association between Rohrabacher and Putin, nevermind a friendly one.
The website leftists have published on this “issue” proves it. The virtual pinboard calls the accusations a “conspiracy theory” and draws connections which simply don’t exist.
