Original Message Jennifer Robinson, one Assange's lawyer's, made statement at Old Bailey today
She recalled a meeting with two Trump allies in Ecuadorian embassy in 2017
She claimed they touted a deal that would let Assange 'get on with his life'
Assange is fighting extradition to the US following the leak of classified files

She said: 'They stated that President Trump was aware of and had approved of them coming to meet with Mr Assange to discuss a proposal - and that they would have an audience with the president to discuss the matter on their return to Washington DC.

'Congressman Rohrabacher explained he wanted to resolve the ongoing speculation about Russian involvement in the Democratic National Committee leaks to WikiLeaks, which were published by WikiLeaks and other media organisations in 2016.

'He stated that he regarded the ongoing speculation as damaging to US-Russian relations, that it was reviving Cold War politics, and that it would be in the best interests of the US if the matter could be resolved.

'He and Mr Johnson also explained that any information from Mr Assange about the source of the DNC leaks would be of interest, value and assistance to Mr Trump.'
Ms Robinson said Mr Rohrabacher said he had come to London to talk to Assange about 'what might be necessary to get him out' and presented him with a 'win-win situation' which would allow him to leave the embassy and 'get on with his life' without fear of extradition to the US.
