Sometimes a great idea comes to mind but is presented in such a way that accepting the terms that the idea offers is impossible. For example, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has just told that world that President Trump’s innocence can be proven in regards to the Russian hack narrative. The facts exist to show it and Assange has said that he is willing to put an end to the rumor of Putin helping the White House if in return he gets a presidential pardon.
Now most conservatives and just about all of the Trump base have known of his innocence for eons. Past that, anyone with a knowledge of programming and computer protocol knows that this hack didn’t happen (it attempted), but for Assange to make the offer as PJ Media reports that he just has, if Trump takes the offer, the White House could appear dishonest.
This was a TERRIBLE way to request and offer this. Perhaps the endless days trapped in an embassy are taking its toll on the judgment of the great founder.

Trump may have even stretched the truth (ok, he lied) in an effort to try and figure out how to respond. He claims that he “never heard” of the offer from Assange. Can we blame him?
On one hand, most of his problems of legitimacy vanish overnight if Wikileaks does this wonderful thing. However, since Assange presented it like a shady back-alley drug deal instead of employing a more subtle approach, it seems all but impossible that Trump can bite.
If he does, some will say, “Oh, he was guilty. Assange bribed his way out of jail.”
Then again….if the proof is that clear, that may not be something that can be said. Assange can’t make this up, so the offer is likely honest. Wikileaks has a proven track record, that is without question from either side. If they say that they can show PROOF, it won’t be ambiguous, on that we all agree.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) told The Daily Caller that Trump is being “being blocked from knowing about the potential deal with Assange,” which seems like a foolish opinion since at this point since it is clearly being written about by everyone. It is public knowledge!
Still, the California Republican said, “I think the president’s answer indicates that there is a wall around him that is being created by people who do not want to expose this fraud that there was collusion between our intelligence community and the leaders of the Democratic Party.”
That seems like a stretch when talking about a man as powerful as the president on such an open letter kind of offer, but this is what he thinks.
We know that the Caller has said, “The congressman spoke to chief of staff John Kelly two weeks ago about the potential deal with Assange. The Wall Street Journalthat Kelly told Rohrabacher to bring the information to the intelligence community.”
So the Caller, the WSJ, PJ Media, the Daily Post, OAN, and Wikileaks all know but Trump doesn’t? That is a stretch too absurd to believe, so one is left to assume that Trump is thinking about the offer, one that he probably SHOULD take.
“This would have to be a cooperative effort between his own staff and the leadership in the intelligence communities to try to prevent the president from making the decision as to whether or not he wants to take the steps necessary to expose this horrendous lie that was shoved down the American people’s throats so incredibly earlier this year,” added Rohrabacher.
Now if this statement is analyzed, it could imply that either those around Trump don’t want Assange out and/or that those around America’s leader are not fully on his side and don’t want him proven innocent. Many have suggested these very things.
Assange keeps government and our rulers honest and they don’t tend to like that very much. Wikileaks has even called and threatened Trump over his taxes so no one can call Assange biased towards the Commander in Chief. He could get a pardon, Trump could break the law, and Wikileaks would bust him. Sorry, that is how Assange plays the game.
Besides the fact that Trump is likely 100% innocent of this whole Russian accusation, let us remember that Assange is a good man. He has given his life, his freedom, his reputation, and his talent (which lets the average person know facts) to all of us for free and his batting average is near .500.
He does not print half-truths, lies, or fake. That means, above all else, he does not deserve to rot in an embassy any more that Trump deserves to have these Russian myths attached to his name.
So, perhaps Assange presented this just fine after all.
