And she's still running for president

Marc Turi, an American arms dealer who threatened to reveal information about Hillary Clinton's alleged role in arming Islamic terrorists until his case was abruptly dropped by federal prosecutors on Tuesday, told Fox News that the case cost him everything.

Turi was charged with selling weapons to Libyan rebels.

The feds faced a Wednesday deadline to turn over discovery documents to Turi's lawyers. Late Tuesday they announced that the government was dropping the case, which was scheduled to go on trial on November 8th (aka Election Day).

It smells like the feds are worried that the discovery documents, if flushed out, may reveal information that could potentially cause Hillary a legal problem that only Obama can pardon.

"I am glad this horrific five-year ordeal is over and I am pleased to be able to move on with my life," Turi said in a statement. "The American public has the right to know that an injustice was committed against an innocent American." 

Turi's legal team advised him to accept the deal but he insisted that his actions were to further his ongoing support of U.S. foreign policy. In other words, he was selling weapons to the government because the government (in this case, Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration) wanted to supply the weapons to Islamic militants in Libya.

In a TV interview on Fox News last year, Turi provided them with emails and documents between him and high-level members of Congress, State Department employees and military personnel, that backed up his claim that the Obama administration authorized in 2011, a covert weapons program that spun out of control. This was at the height of the Arab Spring.

"The government took away my life, my savings, and my company that I worked so hard to build to serve our nation, and for what?" Turi said, "I still don't really know who the unjust actors were who launched this attack against me from the shadows. I just hope that someday there will be someone that will be held accountable."

"That's where I came up with this 'zero footprint' Arab supply chain, whereby our foreign ally supplies another Arab country," he said, depicting the plan as one in which the US would supply conventional weapons to Qatar and they would then supply them to Libya, as a workaround to hide the deal.

"If you want to limit the exposure to the US government, what you simply do is outsource it to your allies. The partners--the Qataris and the Emiratis did exactly what they were contracted to do."

And that's why four Americans died in Benghazi and Clinton is still running for president.

Turi said he never supplied weapons to Qatar. That honor went to the US government and the State Department's Bureau of Political and Military Affairs headed by Andrew Shapiro, a key Clinton aide. His responsibility was to oversee the export control process at the State Department and he answered to Clinton, who used incompetence as her defense when testifying.

And she is still running for president.

Documents reported last year by Fox News were cited showing US officials supported Turi's efforts to get weapons to Libyan rebels while Clinton was in charge as secretary of state. As we later learned, many of the weapons that were supposed to go to Libyan rebels fell into the bloody hands of Muslim militants, even those in Syria.

Turi described how once the weapons landed in Libya, half went one way and half went the other way, ending up in Syria.

In the motion to dismiss, federal prosecutors acknowledged that discovery rulings from U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona factored into the decision. The motion includes a request that Judge David Campbell accept a confidential agreement to settle the case civilly, making the deal struck to keep things under wraps very plausible.

Turi's advisor Robert Stryk accused prosecutors of charging Turi in order to cover up Clinton's mishandling of Libya and he total incompetence.

And she is still running for president.

Something is rotten in Denmark and in Washington D.C.
