Obama DOJ Drops Charges Against Indicted Arms Dealer After He Threatened To Expose Clinton’s Crimes

by Matt Agorist, Activist Post:

This week, the Obama administration dismissed charges against an arms dealer accused of selling weapons destined for Libyan rebels after said dealer threatened to expose Hillary Clinton’s crimes.

Lawyers for the Justice Department filed a joint motion to dismiss with prejudice in a US Federal court to drop the case against the arms dealer, American, Marc Turi.

According to Politico, the trial threatened to cast scrutiny on Clinton’s private emails and to expose reported Central Intelligence Agency attempts to arm rebels fighting Libyan leader Moammar Qadhafi.

A Turi associate asserted that the government dropped the case because the proceedings could have embarrassed Clinton and President Barack Obama by calling attention to the reported role of their administration in supplying weapons that fell into the hands of Islamic extremist militants, according to Politico.

“They don’t want this stuff to come out because it will look really bad for Obama and Clinton just before the election,” said the associate.

According to the motion:

In light of the Court’s discovery rulings, the administrative resolution between DDTC and the defendant, and other factors, the government seeks leave of the Court to dismiss the criminal matter with prejudice pursuant to Rule 48(a). Dismissal is appropriate under Rule 48(a) in these circumstances.

According to the agreement, Turi admitted no guilt in the trading of arms but agreed to refrain from dealing arms under US regulations for four years. As long as Turi abides by the agreement, a $200,000 civil penalty will be waived.

“Mr. Turi cooperated with the Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls in its review and proposed administrative settlement of the alleged violations,” said the official, who asked not be named. “Based on a compliance review, DDTC alleged that Mr. Turi…engaged in brokering activities for the proposed transfer of defense articles to Libya, a proscribed destination under [arms trade regulations,] despite the Department’s denial of…requests for the required prior approval of such activities.”

In 2014, the federal government indicted Turi on four felony counts: two of arms dealing in violation of the Arms Export Control Act and two of lying to the State Department in official applications.

According to Politico, Turi adviser Robert Stryk of the government relations and consulting firm SPG accused the government of trying to scapegoat Turi to cover up Clinton’s mishandling of Libya.

“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,” he said, according to Politico, alluding to the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Turi’s attorney alleges that the weapons were destined for the hands of the Libyan rebels but in a statement to Politico on Tuesday, the State Department claimed: “The proposal did not result in an actual transfer of defense articles to Libya.”

However, multiple sources suggest that weapons have moved from Libya to Syria where the US is engaged in a proxy war with Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

World-renowned journalist Seymour Hersh has revealed, in a series of interviews and books, that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria.

    We have a runaway criminal government and central bank. Plain and simple as that.

    The rule of law doesn’t matter anymore to them. Just propaganda as a means of controlling the message spewed out to the masses. We have a secret government with unlimited spending. As for the markets they are all rigged. The economic data and reports are rigged. The action of the gold and silver market makes the case that the whole system can be manipulated, no true price discovery, even our elections are shown to be rigged. Hillary stole the election from Bernie. She should be in jail instead of running for the highest office of the land. The list of offenses by Hillary are many for me to list here. Federal agencies are proven to be front organizations to steal money from them in order to fund secret programs. HUD is a good example.

    We have been played far too long and we know what they are doing now. The weight of their criminality alone will lead us to greater disfunction of government and the markets. Our national reputation has been diminished in the eyes of other world leaders as demonstrated at the G-20 meeting. Government has employed a Machiavellian strategy and I am afraid things will not end well. It may be too late. I say it is too late because of the highly secret compartmentation of government. It has a life of it’s own, and is untouchable.
