While there is much to be desired about both major political parties in America, there is little question that, in the age of Barack Obama, the Democratic Party has essentially become a criminal enterprise.
That’s the only way to explain the lengths the Obama administration goes to in order to protect the president’s heir-apparent , Hillary Clinton.
While the lamestream establishment media and politicians express faux outrage over comments about women that GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump made in private 11 years ago, Politico was reporting that the administration has dropped its charges against a Libyan arms dealer who was set to expose Clinton if the case had gone to trial.
The political news site reported that a deal struck between the administration and the suspect – an American named Marc Turi – averts a trial that would have put additional scrutiny on Clinton’s private emails as secretary of state, as well as exposing reported CIA attempts to arm rebels battling the late Libyan leader Moammar Qadhafi.
The trial was officially set to begin on Election Day, though Politico says it likely would have been delayed by protracted arguments over classified information in the case.
But an associate of Turi’s claimed that the Justice Department dropped the case because the proceedings would have revealed embarrassing information regarding Obama and Clinton by putting new scrutiny on their reported role in supplying weapons that wound up in the hands of Islamic militants.
“They don’t want this stuff to come out because it will look really bad for Obama and Clinton just before the election,” the associated told Politico .
In the motion to dismiss, prosecutors said “discovery rulings” from U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell contributed to the administration’s decision to drop the case. The joint filing asks the court to accept a confidential agreement to settle the case through civil means (out of court, where the final settlement can be kept confidential).
Robert Stryk, an advisor to Turi from the government relations and consulting firm SPG, accused the administration of attempting to scapegoat his client so Obama could cover up Clinton’s mishandling of the situation in Libya.
He said the U.S. government spent millions of dollars and “went all over the world” to bankrupt Turi and destroy his life, “all to protect Hillary Clinton’s crimes,” alluding to the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, in which four Americans – including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens – were killed.
Of course not. Wouldn’t want our public servants to be held accountable for criminal conduct, would we?
No. Better to focus on what a successful businessman who has never held public office said during a private conversation instead.
