It’s time again for another episode of The Moron Squad, our semi-regular check in with the bit players in the Russia Show — the ones that make Donny Jr. and Jared look like criminal masterminds by comparison. That’s right, we’re talking about Julian “I’m No Rapist” Assange, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-Moscow), WORLD FAMOUS AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST Chuck C. Johnson, and Roger Stone.
When last we left the dipshits, Chuckles and Rohrabacher had taken a road trip to visit Assange in his rat cage at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. They sat around drawing I LUV PUTIN hearts on their Trapper Keepers for a while, debating whether the Putin on a Horse photo or Putin with a Tiger photo is sexier. Then Assange gave Rohrabacher proof Donald Trump won the election fair and square with his massive man hands. Well, it was actually a sheet of blank paper Assange wrote a secret message on using his own spit. But Rohrabacher has big plans to visit Trump and hold it over a lightbulb to prove that Hillary was the real Russia collusion-doer. Then Trump can pardon Assange, freeing his pasty ass to shit-tweet about Hillary Clinton for all eternity.
You may know Chuck C. Johnson as a Holocaust-denying traitor wanker and internet troll. He tells anyone who’ll listen that he’s an AWARD WINNING JOURNALIST! But no one listens, so he spends most of his time trying to insert himself into other people’s stories while frantically shouting, “Someone look at me! I AM TOO important! Stop calling me a loser!” But when he donates Bitcoins to his buddy Dana Rohrabacher, Little Johnson refers to himself as an “investor.” Via The Daily Beast:
[A]fter Johnson set up a meeting between the California Republican and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Johnson donated $5,400 in Bitcoin to Rohrabacher’s campaign, according to a new filing with the Federal Election Commission, which listed Johnson’s occupation as “investor.” He confirmed the donations in a text message with The Daily Beast, adding, “I’m rich now.”
Yes, I’M RICH NOW is definitely a thing that IRL rich people say. And in case you were wondering, yep, he’s still a dick:
Chuck called me up after I asked him about this and we talked for a bit. Here’s a fun comment he had on Steve Bannon’s political operation pic.twitter.com/5lKGBRdb7o

Remember that time House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy got recorded saying, “There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump?” What a funny, funny joke to make about a guy who’s taking contributions in untraceable Bitcoin, huh?
Sadly Rohrabacher hasn’t been able to deliver his super-secret memo from Assange to the president yet because of a DEEP STATE PLOT. Via Business Insider:
“The White House staff and other top people in the administration are trying to protect the president from himself. That’s what they think and in fact they are usurping his authority to make decisions — the important decisions — himself.”
So far, John Kelly has told Rohrabacher to GTFOH with that bullshit about an Assange pardon. But who knows what will happen if Trump’s chief foreign policy advisor Sean Hannity takes up Assange’s cause?
After five years, the Ecuadorian Embassy has gone from Julian Assange’s political asylum to a single-occupant home for the (allegedly!) criminally insane, if his Twitter feed is any indication:
OK buddy. It’s bad enough that the Ecuadorian embassy’s guest is crazier than a shithouse rat. But a closer look at his Twitter timeline shows Assange attempting to insert himself into the Catalan independence movement, and that is not pleasing his Ecuadorian babysitters!
Indeed, new Ecuadorian President
Rafael Correa Lenin Moreno has had it up to here with that asshole flinging his shit everywhere and is ready to cut him loose if the US pinky swears not to execute him.
So that sucks for him, we guess.
Keep tweeting, asshole! You’ve got them right where you want them!
But where does old Roger fit into this? Well, just last week he was flouncing around saying he couldn’t possibly tell House Russia investigators the name of his connection to Julian Assange because JOURNALISM. Was his connection possibly an AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST who moonlights as an investor in Bitcoins? Hmmmmmm.
Naturally, Stone folded like a cheap suit the second Congressmen Mike Conaway and Adam Schiff threatened to subpoena him. Via CNN:
An attorney for Roger Stone says the longtime confidante to President Donald Trump has complied with the House Russia investigators’ request for him to provide the identity of his intermediary to WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange.
But Stone’s attorney, Grant Smith, would not say whether that meant Stone had in fact revealed the identity of his WikiLeaks go-between to the House intelligence committee.
“Mr. Stone has complied with the committee’s requests. No further statement will be issued,” Smith said, declining to answer any additional questions.
NOT ENOUGH EYE ROLL IN THE WORLD for this attempt to be coy. Your client crapped in his silk boxers at the mere mention of a subpoena! Boy, please!
But if any AWARD WINNING JOURNALISTS with little Johnsons (allegedly!) happened to be the go-between for Assange and Roger Stone, congratulations! You finally found a way to insert yourself into a real story. You better start saving your Bitcoin for a lawyer, rich boy, because Robert Mueller might just be coming for you!
