Turi says he was specifically “targeted by the Obama administration “and “lost everything–my family, my friends, my business, my reputation.” … but charges have now been DROPPED? Why?
They spent $10 M investigating him. Why did they suddenly drop his case? They couldn’t POSSIBLY be putting politics before the National interest, could they?
EXCLUSIVE: American arms dealer Marc Turi, in his first television interview since criminal charges against him were dropped, told Fox News that the Obama administration — with the cooperation of Hillary Clinton’s State Department — tried and failed to make him the scapegoat for a 2011 covert weapons program to arm Libyan rebels that spun out of control.
“I would say, 100 percent, I was victimized…to somehow discredit me, to throw me under the bus, to do whatever it took to protect their next presidential candidate,” he told Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge.
The 48-year-old Arizona resident has been at the epicenter of a failed federal investigation led by the Justice Department spanning five years and costing the government an estimated $10 million or more, Turi says.
Turi says the Justice Department abruptly dropped the case to avoid public disclosure of the weapons program, that was designed to force the ouster of Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi during the 2011 Arab Spring.
“Those transcripts from current as well as former CIA officers were classified,” Turi said of the evidence. “If any of these relationships [had] been revealed it would have opened up a can of worms. There wouldn’t have been any good answer for the U.S. government especially in this election year.” The Justice Department faced a deadline last week to produce records to the defense. — Fox News
(It would NOT look good during the Presidency of a UN Peace Prize recipient, Either!)
Crazy coincidence, isn’t it? Just after Hillary wins the nomination, and just BEFORE Americans go to the polls, a case which could implicate Hillary in VIOLATING UN WEAPONS SANCTIONS, he’s free to go?
This is why the politicization of Government departments, especially the ones that administer justice is LETHAL to citizen freedoms. POLITICIZED application of the law is TYRANNY.
And the Left seems to love it.
