Representative Dana Rohrabacher told Sean Hannity Wednesday he’s 99% certain the Russian hacking narrative the media and deep state have pushed for almost a year is a “total lie.”
Rep. Rohrabacher met earlier this month with Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London and is working to schedule a meeting with President Donald Trump to share his findings.

Sean Hannity: Do you believe that this Trump-Russian collusion narrative will be proven false and do you believe [Assange] holds the key?
Rep. Rohrabacher: The answer is absolutely ‘yes.’ And I think this Russian narrative that your talking about, this idea that is unrelenting, sinister story about how Trump colluded with the Russians in order to steal the elections is a total con-job. It’s a fraud. And it’s masking a power grab..
Sean Hannity: So let me be clear. It is possible that the media has lied to the American people and the Democrats have lied to the American people for nearly a year. And they they’ve disrupted the flow of information and manipulated the flow of information in this country for nearly a year. What is the percentage certainty that this has all been a lie?
Rep. Rohrabacher: In terms of what I believe and after looking into this I think it’s about 99% that it’s a total lie… This is not something that Russia colluded with Trump.
CNN reacted to this news with a story claiming the Senate Intelligence Committee now wants to investigate Rep. Rohrabacher.
From CNN, “Senate intel may want to speak with Rohrabacher,” by Jake Tapper, Manu Raju and Tom LoBianco:
The Senate intelligence committee is considering calling on Rep. Dana Rohrabacher to talk about his meeting earlier in August with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, two congressional sources told CNN this week.
Senate investigators are pondering how to proceed with Rohrabacher, in part because the California Republican is a member of Congress, the sources said.
CNN also went out of their way to paint Rohrabacher — who has served as a congressman for 28 years — as a Russkie agent:
There is no indication that Rohrabacher is being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. But Rohrabacher does have connection to a person involved in something that has drawn the interest of investigators: the June 2016 meeting that Donald Trump Jr., Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort had with a group of Russians, including lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Rohrabacher was not at that Trump Tower meeting, but he was working closely with Veselnitskaya and others to try and repeal the Magnitsky Act, which targets Russians whom the US considers human rights abusers.
“He hasn’t been contacted by the committee, but is happy to talk with them after he talks with President Trump,” Ken Grubbs, a Rohrabacher aide, said Wednesday, of the Senate intelligence committee’s possible interest in speaking with him.
Let’s reread this fine journalism: “Rohrabacher does have connection to a person involved in something that has drawn the interest of investigators…”
Could this con-job get any more obvious?
