More nonsense being spouted by the U.K’s Marxist rag.

Rohrabacher said that not only did talk of a Trump pardon take place during his meeting, but he also followed up by calling then White House chief of staff John Kelly to discuss the proposal.

Sounds like people above him weren’t happy he admitted to the situation so he’s trying to walk it back.

Really? He wrote his statement before that supposed Yahoo interview, and you are saying he is trying to walk it back?

By the way…I guess you accidentally did not include this sentence (right after the one you c-p): He did not, however, ever speak to Trump about it, he said.

You also failed to include this: When he spoke to Kelly, the then chief of staff was “courteous” but made no commitment that he would even raise the matter directly with the president. “He knew this had to be handled with care,” Rohrabacher said, and that it could be spun by the news media in ways that would be “harmful” to the president. In fact, Rohrabacher said he never heard anything further from Kelly about the matter, nor did he ever discuss the subject directly with Trump.

Selective reading?

Yet another reason to impeach.

Trump has dodged a bullet here, he obviously sent his man over to coerce Assange and has had time to cover it up. Hm.
