Trump promised Assange help to remove suspicions of hacking Democrats from Russia

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Attorney Edward Fitzgerald said that in 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump promised Julian Assange a pardon for removing suspicions from Russia regarding the hacking of the data of the National Committee of the Democratic Party. About it reported The Guardian newspaper.

Assange defender said the proposal from the US president was delivered then by the incumbent Republican Congresswoman Deina Rorabaker.

Mr. Rohrabacher was going to meet with Mr. Assange and say, according to the president’s instructions, that he (Assange. – ) is offered a pardon or some other way out if Mr. Assange <…> says that Russia has nothing to do with leaks from the National Committee of the Democratic Party , – reports The Guardian.

Hacking data from the National Committee of the Democratic Party occurred during the 2016 election campaign in the United States. The Wikileaks portal, whose founder Julian Assange, has published numerous data and emails from the US Democratic Party system. Democrats are confident that hacking has significantly affected the election results.
