According to a report from The Hill in his recent meeting with Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), Wikileaks’ founder Julian Assange is reported to have told the congressman that he can prove the leaked DNC documents published during last years’ Presidential Election, did not come from Russia.
The meeting took place in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where Assange has been granted political asylum for the past five years. During their three-hour meeting, Assange stated that the Russians were not involved in the hacking of the DNC emails.
If Assange does publish such information, it would prove groundbreaking for a number of issues thoroughly reported in recent months by Disobedient Media. However, Assange also wrote via Twitter:
This tweet implies strongly that we should not rely on third parties to ascertain Assange’s statements – such third parties would necessarily include Congressman Rohrabacher.
When questioned on who was the source of the disclosure of the documents, Rep. Rohrabacher stated that he needed to share the information in private with President Trump. Rohrabacher also indicated that Assange has further information regarding the DNC email leak that is currently unknown to the public, and that Assange requested that Wikileaks be given a seat in the White House Press Room.
Whether Assange will actually reveal such groundbreaking documentation, and what the response might be from various entities including the DNC, remains to be seen.
