Right. So Kelly wants Rohrabacher to take his proof to the people who concocted this wacky Russian farce to begin with. That's a great idea. I'm sure the upstanding people at the CIA will be forever grateful to Rohrabacher for his patriotic contribution. What a joke. The congressman will be lucky if he can ever show his face in public again after these cannibals get through with him. Does he really know who he's messing with? Like Chuckie Schumer said, "These people have a million ways to get to you." And they will, too.

Naturally, the media is doing its level-best to bury the Rohrabacher story. The media's strategy, so far, has been to divert attention from the central issue (proof that Russia did NOT hack the election) to the trivial prospect of a "deal" between Trump and Assange. Assange wants guarantees that the US will not prosecute him if he provides evidence that Russia did not hack the election. While this "deal" may be meaningful for Assange, it pales in comparison to the possible revelation that the "Russia hacking" narrative is a fraud perpetrated on the American people by elements of the permanent government who are employing a massive propaganda campaign to advance their political agenda. That, of course, is much more important. Not surprisingly, virtually 100 percent of the mainstream coverage has focused on the "deal" aspect of the story. Here are a few of the more than hundred headlines appearing at Google News:

"GOP Congressman Sought Trump Deal on WikiLeaks, Russia" Wall Street Journal

"Report: Congressman Chats With WH About Potential Assange Pardon" Daily Caller

"A GOP congressman reportedly offered Trump a deal on absolving WikiLeaks' Assange" CNBC

"Republican lawmaker 'sought a deal with Trump to pardon WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange'" International Business Times

GOP rep proposed Assange pardon deal: report" The Hill

"Congressman tries to broker White House pardon for Julian Assange," New York Daily News

"Lawmaker tried negotiating deal with Trump to help WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange", Business Insider

Do you see the common thread here? The media is trying to divert attention from the real story until they get their bearings and figure out a way to dispose of Rohrabacher. As soon as they settle on an approach, they'll be off to the races.

Rohrabacher should be applauded for trying to reveal the truth, but he's probably bitten off more than he can chew.

I hope not.
