"The president barely knows Dana Rohrabacher other than he’s an ex-congressman. He’s never spoken to him on this subject or almost any subject. It is a complete fabrication and a total lie," she said.

Soon, we will have many pictures plastered everywhere showing Trump with Rohrabacher together.

We’ve seen that pattern before.

I really don't see why Trump continues with this. He's trying to rewrite history to say that Russia didn't interfere with the election to his benefit, despite all intelligence agencies cementing it in stone already. No amount of spinning flimsy evidence and weak links is going to make a bit of difference.

The GOP has failed at every single investigation since the first Benghazi investigation. It's astounding that they still have people who believe their narratives as they've been humiliated time and time again when the investigations don't come anywhere near the claims their politicians made.

A dozen Benghazi investigations, the Clinton email investigation, the investigation into the Clinton email investigation, the investigation into FISA, the first IG investigation, and second IG investigation, the investigation into Uranium One, the investigation into The Clinton Foundation, Obama wiretapping Trump Tower.

Take your pick. Seriously. None of the conclusions remotely match the accusations made by the right-wing media and politicians.

But hey, there's always the Durham investigation, right?

Donnie always keeping it classy - gives a medal to a white supremacist drug addict, pardons one of the most disgusting swamp creatures ever, and now offers another "QPQ" to someone who hates America, colluded with Chelsea Manning to steal and publish classified information, and has close contacts with Russians...

And the Trumpers here keep saying "Get over Russia"....

Sure, maybe you need to say that to your Great Orange Comrade...

Hey Trumpers - time for another question;

Assange is under indictment for rape in 2010, he colluded with Chelsea Manning to steal and publish US classified information - information that put US military personnel at risk, and worked with Russian intel agencies to publish Russian stolen DNC emails...

So, is he a hero or scum?

Exactly. But remember, many Trump supporters are also pro-Russia. They've said they admire Putin's 'strongman' style, some even called him a stud. They've admitted they believe the Kremlin's reports, but not those from 'western' intelligence agencies. They welcome a further weakening of the US's sovereignty as long as their Trump can stay in power.

At Westminster Magistrates' Court, Assange's barrister, Edward Fitzgerald, referred to a witness statement by former Republican U.S. Representative Dana Rohrabacher who visited Assange in 2017, saying he had been sent by the president to offer a pardon.

Ho ho ho. Another unconfirmed rumor to give the usual suspects (Democrats and Hillary-worshippers) another chance to run around in circles tweeting their hatred of all things Trump. And the usual suspects still wonder why some people still find their shrill caterwauling to be unbelievable.

No answer - Figures. Notice how Trumpers avoid answering any question that Hannity or Ingraham hasn't issued talking points for...

Maybe there are other reasons to ignore your question?
