White House Denies Assange Accusation Trump Sought to Get Him to Lie

According to the Washington Examiner:

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham slammed accusations made by lawyers of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

London’s Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard from Assange’s lawyer, Edward Fitzgerald, that President Trump offered the Australian whistleblower a pardon contingent on him lying about how his organization gained access to leaked emails from Democratic National Committee and then-candidate Hillary Clinton. Fitzgerald said former┬áCalifornia Republican┬áRep. Dana Rohrabacher was instructed by Trump to visit Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy, where he was living under asylum, and offer a deal if Assange said, “Russia had nothing to do with the DNC leaks.”

Grisham shot back at the claims, calling the alleged deal a “complete fabrication and a total lie.”
