Rohrabacher meets with Assange, who denies Russia was involved with DNC leaks

Source: Orange County Register

“WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told Costa Mesa congressman Dana Rohrabacher on Wednesday that Russia was not involved with leaking controversial emails from the Democratic National Committee during last year’s presidential campaign. ‘He reaffirmed his aggressive denial that the Russians had anything to do with the hacking of the DNC during the election,’ Rohrabacher said from London. ‘He has given us a lot of information. He said there’s more to come. We don’t have the entire picture yet.’ The emails disrupted Hillary Clinton’s campaign by fueling criticism that the DNC had taken deliberate steps to favor Clinton over opponent Bernie Sanders. Some believe that the criticism that Democrats had rigged the primary contributed to her loss to Donald Trump.” (08/16/17)
