Is Obama DOJ Dropping Case v. Arms Dealer to Protect Clinton?

A potential bombshell report published by Politico Tuesday suggests that the Obama administration is dropping a case against an American arms dealer, noting that, “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.”

The irony of the Libyan arms story has not been lost on gun rights activists. It has been the launch pad for sarcastic remarks about an administration that seemed to have no problem supplying guns to foreigners without background checks, but demands all kinds of scrutiny on U.S. citizens wanting to purchase firearms.

Political reported that gun dealer Marc Turi was something of a scapegoat “to cover up Clinton’s mishandling of Libya.” The story 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.”
