Our government has officially become corrupted to the core. In fact, it’s so corrupt that it’s willing to commit treason to protect former members of it, like Hillary Clinton.
Under Obama’s watch, the Department of (in)Justice has actually committed a treasonous act in order to protect Hillary’s shot at the White House. This is no joke either.
A bombshell report from Politico (not exactly a conservative media outlet), it has been revealed that Obama’s Justice Department dropped charges against the man responsible for peddling arms to Libyan terrorists. On Monday, lawyers for the DOJ filed a motion to have the charges dismissed because testimony from Marc Turi would cast additional scrutiny on Hillary over her private email server right before the election.
And we just can’t have that, now can we?

The deal averts a trial that threatened to cast additional scrutiny on Hillary Clinton’s private emails as Secretary of State, and to expose reported Central Intelligence Agency attempts to arm rebels fighting Libyan leader Moammar Qadhafi.
Government lawyers were facing a Wednesday deadline to produce documents to Turi’s legal team, and the trial was officially set to begin on Election Day, although it likely would have been delayed by protracted disputes about classified information in the case.
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.
“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.
In the dismissal motion, prosecutors say “discovery rulings” from U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell contributed to the decision to drop the case. The joint motion asks the judge to accept a confidential agreement to resolve the case through a civil settlement between the State Department and the arms broker.
Representatives of the Justice Department, the White House and Clinton’s presidential campaign either declined to comment or did not respond to requests for comment on the case or the settlement.
Turi was indicted in 2014 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. The charges accused Turi of claiming that the weapons involved were destined for Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, when the arms were actually intended to reach Libya.
Turi’s lawyers argued that the shipments were part of a U.S. government-authorized effort to arm Libyan rebels.
Is there any depths the Obama administration isn’t willing to go in order to protect itself?
