“Offer to Julian Assange in 2017

7:24 am EDT: Jennifer Robinson, a member of Assange’s legal team, had a statement read out in court on her behalf in which she recounted a visit by then U.S. Congressman Dana  Rohrabacher to Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Aug. 15, 2017 where Robison was present.

Robinson said in her statement that Rohrabacher claimed to be representing President Donald Trump on a mission in which the president would look favorably on preventing an indictment of Assange in return for the WikiLeaks publisher naming his source for the Democratic National Committee emails.

The leaks before the 2016 U.S. presidential election had led to a firestorm of allegations that Russia had provided those documents and that Trump was somehow in league with Russia and WikiLeaks to hurt his Democratic challenger, Hilary Clinton.

Rohrabacher told Assange, according to Robinson’s statement, that Assange could help Trump politically as well as to end the dangerous escalation of Cold War-like tensions between Russia and the United States if he could provide evidence of who the actual leaker of the Democratic emails was. “Rohrabacher proposed a ‘win-win’ situation, Mr. Assange can get ‘get on with his life’ – a pardon in exchange for information about the source,” Robinson’s statement said. “Information from Mr. Assange about the source of the DNC leaks would be of value to Mr. Trump.”

Assange refused, Robinson’s statement said.

James Lewis QC for the prosecution rose after the statement was read to say the U.S. government contested the truth of Robinson’s statement.”

“My Meeting with Julian Assange

2/19/2020

There is a lot of misinformation floating out there regarding my meeting with Julian Assange so let me provide some clarity on the matter: 

At no time did I talk to President Trump about Julian Assange.  Likewise, I was not directed by Trump or anyone else connected with him to meet with Julian Assange. I was on my own fact finding mission at personal expense to find out information I thought was important to our country.  I was shocked to find out that no other member of Congress had taken the time in their official or unofficial capacity to interview Julian Assange.  At no time did I offer Julian Assange anything from the President because I had not spoken with the President about this issue at all.  However, when speaking with Julian Assange, I told him that if he could provide me information and evidence about who actually gave him the DNC emails, I would then call on President Trump to pardon him. At no time did I offer a deal made by the President, nor did I say I was representing the President. Upon my return, I spoke briefly with Gen. Kelly. I told him that Julian Assange would provide information about the purloined DNC emails in exchange for a pardon. No one followed up with me including Gen. Kelly and that was the last discussion I had on this subject with anyone representing Trump or in his Administration.  

Even though I wasn’t successful in getting this message through to the President I still call on him to pardon Julian Assange, who is the true whistleblower of our time.  Finally, we are all holding our breath waiting for an honest investigation into the murder of Seth Rich.”

“Phone Calls Between Biden And Ukraine’s Poroshenko Leaked; Details $1 Billion “Quid Pro Quo” To Fire Burisma Prosecutor

Leaked phone calls between Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko explicitly detail the quid-pro-quo arrangement to fire former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin – who Poroshenko admits did nothing wrong – in exchange for $1 billion in US loan guarantees (which Biden openly bragged about in January, 2018).

The calls were leaked by Ukrainian MP Andrii Derkach, who says the recordings of “voices similar to Poroshenko and Biden” were given to him by investigative journalists who claim Poroshenko made them.

Shokin was notably investigating Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company that hired Biden’s son, Hunter, to sit on its board. Shokin had opened a case against Burisma’s founder, Mykola Zlochevsky, who granted Burisma permits to drill for oil and gas in Ukraine while he was Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources. In January, 2019, Shokin stated in a deposition that there were five criminal cases against Zlochevesky, including money laundering, corruption, illegal funds transfers, and profiteering through shell corporations while he was a sitting minister.”

From John Solomon May 19, 2020.

“Ukraine judge orders Joe Biden be listed as alleged perpetrator of crime in prosecutor’s firing”

“The infamous story of Joe Biden’s effort to force the firing of Ukraine’s chief prosecutor in 2016 has taken a new legal twist in Kiev, just as the former vice president is sewing up the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination in America.

In Kiev late last month, District Court Judge S. V. Vovk ordered the country’s law enforcement services to formally list the fired prosecutor, Victor Shokin, as the victim of an alleged crime by the former U.S. vice president, according to an official English translation of the ruling obtained by Just the News.

The court had previously ordered the Prosecutor General’s Office and the State Bureau of Investigations in February to investigate Shokin’s claim that he was fired in spring 2016 under pressure from Biden because he was investigating Burisma Holdings, the natural gas company where Biden’s son Hunter worked.

The court ruled then that there was adequate evidence to investigate Shokin’s claim that Biden’s pressure on then-President Petro Poroshenko, including a threat to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, amounted to unlawful interference in Shokin’s work as Ukraine’s chief prosecutor.

But when law enforcement agencies opened the probe they refused to name Biden as the alleged perpetrator of the crime, instead listing the potential defendant as an unnamed American.

Vovk ruled that anonymous listing was improper and ordered the law enforcement agencies to formally name Biden as the accused perpetrator.”

From The Telegraph

March 11, 2017. (date significant)

“What is ‘deep state’ and is a shadowy network of Obama holdovers undermining Donald Trump?

Sean Spicer, the White House spokesman, didn’t reject the idea that a “deep state” may be working to undermine Donald Trump on Friday, as right-wing media fanned theories of a shadowy network working against the president.

When asked if the White House suspected there was such a thing as “the deep state” resisting the new administration, Mr Spicer referred to former President Barack Obama’s two terms in office: “I think there’s no question when you have eight years of one party in office that stays in government [they’re] affiliated with, joined [to] and continue to espouse the agenda of the previous administration.

“I don’t think it should come as any surprise that there are people burrowed into government during eight years of the last administration and may have believed in that agenda and want to continue to seek it. I don’t think that should come as a surprise to anyone.”

His comments came a day after Fox News’s Sean Hannity, a supporter of Mr Trump, called for a “purge” of “deep-state Obama holdovers.””

“The term has gained popularity in the US in recent years, particularly in reference to the intelligence community. When Edward Snowden’s leaks revealed details of mass surveillance conducted by the US, one Wall Street Journal opinion writer wondered if it was being carried out by  “a deep state consisting of our intelligence and security agencies”.

It has since been used to describe the series of leaks that led to the resignation of Michael Flynn, Mr Trump’s former National Security Adviser, and that have plagued his Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”

“In the media, Hannity has been one of the loudest voices to warn of the dangers of a “deep state”. On Thursday, he called for Mr Trump to “purge” the executive branch of Obama-era bureaucrats and appointees.

Comparing the situation to former President Lincoln on the eve of the Civil War, he said: “He fired over 75 percent, nearly 1,200 people out of 1,500 bureaucrats that worked in the executive branch that President Abraham Lincoln feared could be disloyal. It’s time now for President Trump to follow Abraham Lincoln’s example and fire anyone and everyone who was actively working against him in government.””

Where there is smoke there is fire.

So it is with the deep state Democrats, the left.

They are absolute masters of diversions.

Almost the entire period of the Trump Presidency, they have diverted attention away from the DNC leaks and what they revealed.

We now know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the narrative of the Russian hack and collusion is false, fabricated by the deep state.

The last remaining piece of the puzzle is who did it.

Julian Assange is the one person who knows for sure where he got the data.

A mountain of circumstantial evidence points to Seth Rich.

At least 4 prominent court cases have been dragging on and have issued requests for testimony from Julian Assange.

High powered law firms have aided the Rich family.

The obvious intent is to drag this also past the election cycle.

Ellen Ratner, former journalist who met with Julian Assange, was told it was an inside job. She has finally responded after 6 subpoena attempts with sealed documents.

See a trend?

So who is pushing the control of, the extradition, the prosecution, the persecution of Julian Assange?

We were told the Obama Administration dropped this effort.

But we have also witnessed the Obama Administration appointed or controlled DOJ officials who are anti Trump and beholden to the deep state.

Here are just 2 for starters.

From the

REPLY BRIEF FOR COURT-APPOINTED AMICUS CURIAE

filed by John Gleeson September 11, 2020.

“To describe the Government’s Motion to Dismiss as irregular would be a study in understatement. In the United States, Presidents do not orchestrate pressure campaigns to get the Justice Department to drop charges against defendants who have pleaded guilty—twice, before two different judges—and whose guilt is obvious. And the Justice Department does not seek to dismiss criminal charges on grounds riddled with legal and factual error, then argue that the
validity of those grounds cannot even be briefed to the Court that accepted the defendant’s guilty plea. Nor does the Justice Department make a practice of attacking its own prior filings in a case, as well as judicial opinions ruling in its favor, all while asserting that the normal rules should be set aside for a defendant who is openly favored by the President

Yet that is exactly what has unfolded here. There is clear evidence that the Government’s Motion to Dismiss the case against Defendant Michael T. Flynn rests on pure pretext. There is clear evidence that this motion reflects a corrupt and politically motivated favor unworthy of our justice system. In the face of all this, the Government makes little effort to refute (or even address) the evidence exposing its abuses—and the arguments it does advance only further
undermine its position. Instead, the Government invokes a parade of false formalities that would reduce this Court to a rubber stamp. The Government’s motion should therefore be denied.”

“Having obesity, defined as a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above, increases your risk of severe illness from COVID-19.”…CDC

“Severe obesity puts those with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) at particularly high risk of death, more so than related risk factors such as diabetes or hypertension”… Kaiser Permanente study

“This is a wake up call. About 42% of adults in the U.S. are considered obese. This puts people at a highrer risk for Covid-19 complications and other health issues.”…Citizen Wells

 

From AJMC August 12, 2020.

“Kaiser Study: Severe Obesity Boosts Risk of COVID-19 Death, Especially for the Young

“Severe obesity puts those with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) at particularly high risk of death, more so than related risk factors such as diabetes or hypertension, according to a study of patient records that researchers from Kaiser Permanente published today.

The study, appearing in Annals of Internal Medicine,1 showed that obesity is especially dangerous for men and younger patients who contract COVID-19, and that obesity stood out from racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic disparities when isolated from those factors.

Data from the 6916 patients in the study show that compared with those at normal body mass index (BMI) of 18.5 to 24 kg/m2, the risk of death more than doubled for patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 to 44 kg/m2 (relative risk of 2.68; 95% CI, 1.43 to 5.04) and nearly doubled again for those with a BMI of 45 kg/m2 (relative risk of 4.18; 95% CI, 2.12 to 8.26).

“This risk was most striking among those aged 60 years or younger and men,” the authors wrote.

In an accompanying editorial, David A. Kass, MD, a cardiologist at John Hopkins University, wrote that these findings, when taken with prior research, “should put to rest the contention that obesity is common in severe COVID-19 because it is common in the population. Obesity is an important independent risk factor for serious COVID-19 disease.”

“His assessment was stark: COVID-19 makes it hard to breathe, and excess fat only makes this worse.

“As a cardiologist who studies heart failure, I am struck by how many of the mechanisms that are mentioned in reviews of obesity risk and heart disease are also mentioned in reviews of obesity and COVID-19,” Kass wrote. Things like sleep apnea and increased inflammation are all at work, damaging lungs and particularly the air sacs that do the heavy lifting in the respiratory system.

Not only does being severely obese make it harder to breathe, but the adipose tissue fuels mechanisms that act like magnets for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the COVID-19.

“Fat deposited in skeletal muscle may be sought after by top-end steakhouses but, in vivo, it compromises muscle metabolic efficiency, nutrient uptake, and performance,” Kass wrote. “It requires more muscle force to displace the diaphragm downward when a substantial fat mass lies below it. Abdominal obesity also makes it more difficult to breathe in a prone position that is favored to improve ventilation in patients with COVID-19.””

First, I am sorry for the Urquiza family loss.

However the father, Mark Anthony Urquiza, was already at a high health risk due to his obesity prior to the Covid-19.

The daughter, Kristin, is now supporting corrupt career politician Joe Biden based on a false precept. However, that is a natural progression for those unable to hold themselves accountable.

From Biz Pac Review.

“Daughter exploits Trump-supporting dad, who was obese and died of Covid 19, for Dems’ convention”

“Urquiza outrageously declared that the president was responsible for the death of her father, Mark Anthony Urquiza, who died in June. She contended that Trump’s remarks were somehow responsible for her father’s own decision back in May when he ignored the fact that he was in an at-risk category for the coronavirus and visited a karaoke bar when the stay-at-home order was lifted in Arizona.

“He had faith in Donald Trump,” Urquiza said of her father. “He voted for him, listened to him, believed him and his mouthpieces when they said that coronavirus was under control and going to disappear. That it was OK to end social distancing rules before it was safe. That if you had no underlying health conditions, you’d probably be fine.”

Though lockdown orders may have been lifted, older adults had been considered at a higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, as seen in many of the pandemic’s first victims.”

“In the US it is always someone else’s fault.

If you are arrested by the police for breaking the law it is the police fault.

If you get Covid-19 it is Trump’s fault.

However, long before Covid-19 happened, we already had an epidemic in the US.

Obesity.

The elephant in the room.

Nobody wants to talk about it including the fake news media.

Recently I learned of the death from Covid-19 of a young woman in her mid twenties. The mother stated that her daughter had no pre existing conditions.

The photo of the young woman appeared to reveal that she was overweight.

This is a wake up call.

From Houston Methodist.

“Anyone can get infected with the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19. But, as we continue to learn more about this new disease, it’s becoming increasingly clear that some people are more vulnerable to severe illness than others — including those who are very overweight.

“People may not realize this, but obesity in and of itself is a risk factor for being hospitalized or placed in the ICU as a result of COVID-19,” says Dr. Kyle Stephens, weight loss surgeon at Houston Methodist. “And this is particularly concerning since we also know that about 42% of adults in the U.S. are considered obese.””

“Re: Seth Rich, keep an eye on the National Security Division of the Justice Department. As you can see from the federal complaint, the NSD ignored a FOIA request that I filed back in 2018 for records about Seth Rich. And look at Paragraph 16, plus Exhibit 8.

“Assange testimony requested in Rich v Butowsky et al  August 24, 2020”…Citizen Wells

 

From Consortium News September 8, 2020 UK lunch break.

“US Tries to Narrow its Espionage Charge to Only Naming Informants; Defense Quotes Indictment to Prove Otherwise

Julian Assange was also warned by Judge Baraitser that he would be removed if he makes another outburst. U.S. crimes abroad on display.”

“Prosecution had tried to establish on cross that Assange is not being charged with publishing classified information, but only publishing names of informants, which happened to be in classified documents.

There is no specific U.S. statute against revealing informants names, as there is regarding the names of covert government agents, as readers will recall in the Valerie Plame case.  But James Lewis QC for the prosecution argued that informant names are national defense information and thus protected by the Espionage Act.

This is a sleight of hand and speaks to the public relations nature of the U.S. case. Lewis on the one hand argues Assange is not being charged with publishing, but only with publishing documents with informants’ names. That is an appeal to First Amendment concerns. But that is still a charge of publishing classified information, even if restricted to those with informant names.

The U.S. appeal to the public is to depict Assange as an ogre who doesn’t care for human life, while at the same time portraying the United States as being concerned for a free press.

Lewis read from the book by David Leigh and Luke Harding, Wikileaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy, in which the authors say that Assange was unconcerned about revealing the names of informants, and quotes from a dinner in which Assange was alleged to have said that informants deserved it, if they were killed.

Lewis asked the defense witness Smith if he agreed with Leigh about this or with Assange?  It was a below-the-belt question, which Smith evaded by returning to a point he repeatedly made that Lewis, as a British lawyer, didn’t know how U.S. trials are conducted the way Smith, an American lawyer, does.

Julian Assange Extradition Hearing coverage September 7, 2020, Journalism historian and professor Mark Feldstein begins testimony

Julian Assange Extradition Hearing coverage September 7, 2020, Journalism historian and professor Mark Feldstein begins testimony

“Ellen Ratner can confirm that the Saturday before the Election 2016, she met with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for 3 hours. He told her that Russia did not “hack” the DNC, it was from an internal source.”...Ellen Ratner’s attendance at Embry University symposium on November 9, 2016

“Why John Brennan, Peter Strzok and DOJ Needed Julian Assange Arrested”…The Conservative Treehouse November 3, 2019

“Letters Rogatory have been sent to the UK requesting the testimony of Julian Assange in at least 2 Seth Rich cases.”...Citizen Wells

 

From Don’t Extradite Assange September 7, 2020.

“Journalism professor begins testimony

Mark Feldstein, journalism historian and professor at the University of Maryland, gives testimony. See his witness statement here as to his determination that what Assange and WikiLeaks practice is journalism: Mark Feldstein witness statement

Feldstein testifies to the ubiquity of leaks of classified information:

“There are so many of them – thousands upon thousands – it is routine; every study in the last 60 years has said the leaks of classified information inform the public about government decision making but they also evidence government dishonesty….and they go back to George Washington’s presidency.”

Some journalists make a career of this?

Feldstein says, “Yes, Pulitzer prize winners and some of the most respected journalists in the nation.”

Would you expect publishers to be prosecuted for this criminal conduct?

“Well no…because the First Amendment protects a free press and it is vital that the press expise wrongdoing….not because journalists are somehow privileged but that the public has a right to be informed.”

Has there ever been a precedent of the prosecution of a publisher?

“There has always been a divide, the source-distributor divide….they have charged whistleblowers or sources, but have never charged a publisher, a journalistic or other news outlet.”

There have been other attempts to prosecute journalists before?

“There have been extraordinary efforts to punish presidential enemies…”

Presidents going after journalists but never to the point of a grand jury returning charges?

“That’s correct”

At this point, the court had technical issues with Prof. Feldstein’s videolink, and adjourned for the day. Court resumes tomorrow, 10am London time.

Flynn case update minute order Sept 6, 2020, General Flynn, Government and  Court-appointed amicus curiae deliver documents by September 10, Signed by Judge Sullivan

Flynn case update minute order Sept 6, 2020, General Flynn, Government and  Court-appointed amicus curiae deliver documents by September 10, Signed by Judge Sullivan

“Instead of doing so, the government has continued to defy its
constitutional, ethical and legal obligations to this Court and to the defense, and to hide evidence that it knows exonerates Mr. Flynn. As is the essence of the problem here, instead of protecting its citizens, the “government” is protecting its own criminal conduct and operatives.”…Attorney Sidney Powell October

“her client was “totally set up” because he threatened to expose wrongdoing by top intelligence officials in the Obama administration.

“He was going to audit the intel agencies because he knew about the billions Brennan and company were running off the books,” Powell said, referring to former CIA Director John Brennan.”…Sidney Powell, Vickie McKenna Show

On Judge Sullivan: “if there was any doubt up to this point whether his conduct gives the appearance of partiality, that doubt is gone.”...Judge Rao dissenting opinion
