WH Uses Trump’s Tactics To Claim He Had Nothing To Do With New Assange Bombshell

When Donald Trump gets caught in the middle of an illegal act he likes to say that he doesn’t know the people involved and thus he has nothing to do with the matter.

That is the same tactic White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham used on Wednesday after WikiLeaks CEO Julian Assange claimed that he was told to keep quiet about Russia hacking the DNC in exchange for a pardon.

Assange claimed that Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) offered him the deal on Trump’s behalf. But according to Grisham, Trump “barely knows” Rohrabacher.

Grisham insisted to CNN’s Jim Acosta that Trump knew nothing of the deal.

One Twitter user put together a series of tweets noting all the times Trump praised Rohrabacher, which completely contradicts Grisham’s claim.
