An attorney for Julian Assange alleged in court Wednesday that President Trump offered a pardon to Julian Assange if he would deny any Russian involvement in the Democratic National Committee (DNC) hack in 2016.

Edward Fitzgerald, Assange’s lawyer, said in a London court that Trump’s message had been passed on to Assange by former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.).

Fitzgerald said a statement made by Jennifer Robinson, another lawyer for Assange, shows “Mr. Rohrabacher going to see Mr Assange and saying, on instructions from the president, he was offering a pardon or some other way out, if Mr Assange… said Russia had nothing to do with the DNC leaks.”

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham released the following statement on the report:

“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. This is probably another never ending hoax and total lie from the DNC.”

Multiple people are now sharing an old Twitter post by the president, in which he praised Rohrabacher.
