With Obama in office, liberals can get away with anything. Hillary Clinton has gotten away with an email scandal that merited an FBI investigation, and that was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes so Obama’s culture of corruption.
A criminal case that had raged for more than two years against an alleged Libyan arms dealer came to an abrupt end on Monday after a Federal judge ordered the Obama administration to produce documents related to the “covert transfers of weapons” to rebels in Libya between 2010 and 2011.
The Turi Defense Group was indicted in February of 2014 for illegally providing “a substantial quantity of weapons” to Libyan rebels despite “knowledge that such activities were prohibited by United States law,” court documents show. The case was called the United States V. Turi. The defense contractor argued that the government was aware of and complicit in the sale of arms to rebel groups — some of which may have ended up in Syria.
Of course, when any story has a connection to Hillary Clinton, you know what there won’t be any criminal consequences.
And why was the case dropped? As the Federalist Papers reported:
The Department of Justice has moved to drop the charges filed against Marc Turi, who was alleged to have sold arms that were intended for Libyan rebels. The likely reason why is that he threatened to expose former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s actions leading up to the Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi, Libya terror attacks.
So – corruption – to cover up more corruption.
It has been surmised that the move to drop the charges is an effort to protect Clinton from having information revealed that may point to a role in the Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi, Libya terrorist attacks that left four Americans dead.
Government relations and consulting firm SPG’s Robert Stryk advised Turi and had this to say about the case and its connection to Benghazi: “The U.S. government spent millions of dollars, went all over the world to bankrupt him, and destroyed his life — all to protect Hillary Clinton’s crimes.”
Perkins Coie partner Jean-Jacques Cabou served as Turi’s court-appointed defense counsel and said, in response to the dropped charges: “Our position from the outset has been that this case never should have been brought and we’re glad it’s over.” Cabou added, “Mr Turi didn’t break the law. We’re very glad the charges are being dismissed.”
The deal that Turi received did not require him to admit guilt; however, he will have to cease U.S. regulated arms dealings for four years in order for a $200,000 civil penalty to be waived.
Barack Obama promised that his administration would be the most transparent in history. It’s transparently corrupt, so I suppose we can give him credit in that regard.
Hillary Clinton promises to continue the legacy of the Obama administration – and if special legal favors like this are part of that legacy, another two terms of corruption are to be expected.
Of course – we can all change that. Get out and vote in November – and get the word out by sharing this post on Facebook and Twitter.
