Did you try to straighten the rotors or did you replace them? if you replaced them and bled the brakes it might be the forks with a bend issue. I can't see the wheel not being true but not impossible. Keep us posted.

A bent fork or forks will not cause the brake discs to wobble.

Bent wheel would if it was bent at the hub where the brake rotors mount but that is very unlikely. Most likely to bend at the rim and possibly the spokes but not the hub.

Sounds like the rotors are bent to me. While parked... pump up the brakes. If you get a firm feeling once they get pumped up... then there's no air in the lines.
Then once you get a firm feeling... roll the bike or just spin the wheel if you have stands and if the feeling changes... bent rotors.
