Dana Rohrabacher Also Met With Kremlin Linked Lawyer
Dana Rohrabacher-Russia’s favorite Congressman. The picture above reminds us of that time Rohrabacher went on an excursion to see Julian Assange along with the Alt Right hacker Charles Johnson.
In that case, he floated the idea of pardoning Julian Assange in exchange for Assange somehow proving it wasn’t Russia who gave him all those Democratic emails. Of course, if you believe Assange, it doesn’t make any sense how’d he know. After all, Assange insists he’s just a journalist who receives anonymous leaks through in a mail box.
If so, how does he know either way?
It turns out this wasn’t Rohrabacher’s first highly problematic foreign excursion. It turns out that he, too, during the campaign met with: the same Kremlin linked lawyer who had the Russia meeting at Trump Tower with Donald Jr, and Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort.
Yes, Rohrabacher met with her too:
“A report out Tuesday connects Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), the ardently pro-Russia congressman, to yet another player in the ever-widening Trump-Russia scandal: Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Kremlin-linked lawyer who promised to bring damaging information about Hillary Clinton to a June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump, Jr. and other Trump campaign officials.”
And Rinate Akhmetshin was also at the Donald Jr Russia meeting a couple of months after Rohrbacher met with them in Moscow.
A little more about this ‘former Soviet operative.’
“Soviet Veteran Who Met With Trump Jr. Is a Master of the Dark Arts.”
“Rinat Akhmetshin, the Russian-American lobbyist who met with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower in June 2016, had one consistent message for the journalists who met him over the years at the luxury hotels where he stayed in Moscow, London and Paris, or at his home on a leafy street in Washington: Never use email to convey information that needed to be kept secret.”
“While not, he insisted, an expert in the technical aspects of hacking nor, a spy, Mr. Akhmetshin talked openly about how he had worked with a counterintelligence unit while serving with the Red Army after its 1979 invasion of Afghanistan and how easy it was to find tech-savvy professionals ready and able to plunder just about any email account.”
“A journalist who visited his home was given a thumb drive containing emails that had apparently been stolen by hackers working for one of his clients.”
“On another occasion, at a meeting with a New York Times reporter at the Ararat Park Hyatt hotel in Moscow, Mr. Akhmetshin, by then an American citizen, informed the journalist he had recently been reading one of his emails: a note sent by the reporter to a Russian-American defense lawyer who had once worked for Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the anti-Kremlin oligarch.”
“In that instance, the reporter’s email had become public as part of a lawsuit. But the episode suggests Mr. Akhmetshin’s professional focus in the decades since he immigrated to the United States — and the experience that he brought to a meeting last June in New York with President Trump’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and the then-head of the Trump presidential campaign, Paul J. Manafort.”
But then, Rohrabacher has met a lot of hackers-Charles Johnson. Assange(though Assange is not supposed to hack himself anymore, not since he was in juvenile court back in 1991 in Germany).
Akhmeshin is certainly right about emails. Wow what we’ve learned about emails the last couple of years.
