Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California has returned from Europe with a plan to brief President Trump on a meeting with WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange that he says touched on information disproving Russia’s role hacking Democratic emails.
The Orange County Republican visited Assange inside Ecuador’s London embassy last week and told the Washington Examiner on Thursday, shortly after his return, that “I would not talk on the telephone” with the president about the three-hour conversation.
“There is a meeting arranged, and I forgot the exact day it is right now, but it’s coming up,” he said.
Rohrabacher spokesman Ken Grubbs was unable to provide additional details on Friday, and Rohrabacher did not respond to a text message. The White House did not immediately respond to an inquiry about whether a meeting is scheduled.
