Barack Obama’s administration already boosted Hillary Clinton when the FBI decided not to recommend charges be brought against her.

Now, news of how Obama helped cover up a new Hillary scandal is breaking.

And the details are ugly.

Marc Turi is an American arms dealer who was about to stand trial in Phoenix on four counts involving illegally shipping arms to Libyan rebels.

Controversy has surrounded arms shipments to Libya as evidence has emerged that these weapons were routed to the Syrians in their civil war, and ended up in the hands of terrorists.

Turi and his attorneys were set to argue in court that emails on Hillary Clinton’s server proved that she and her aides were set to authorize the exact types of arms shipments Turi is accused of participating in that violated U.S. law.

Politico reports:

“At a court hearing in 2015, Cabou said emails between Clinton and her top aides indicated that efforts to arm the rebels were — at a minimum — under discussion at the highest levels of the government.

 “We’re entitled to tell the jury, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the Secretary of State and her highest staff members were actively contemplating providing exactly the type of military assistance that Mr. Turi is here to answer for,” the defense attorney said, according to a transcript.

 Turi’s defense was pressing for more documents about the alleged rebel-arming effort and for testimony from officials who worked on the issue with the State Department and the CIA. The defense said it planned to argue that Turi believed he had official permission to work on arms transfers to Libya.

 “If we armed the rebels, as publicly reported in many, many sources and as we strongly believe happened, and as we believe at least one witness told the grand jury, then documents about that process relate to that effort,” Cabou told Campbell at the same hearing last year.”

 Julian Assange released emails showing that Hillary’s emails contained discussions of arms shipments to Libya that flowed into Syria and ultimately ended up in the hands of ISIS.

Democracy Now reports:

“So, those Hillary Clinton emails, they connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, creating a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office, but more broadly, how the U.S. Department of State operates. So, for example, the disastrous, absolutely disastrous intervention in Libya, the destruction of the Gaddafi government, which led to the occupation of ISIS of large segments of that country, weapons flows going over to Syria, being pushed by Hillary Clinton, into jihadists within Syria, including ISIS, that’s there in those emails. There’s more than 1,700 emails in Hillary Clinton’s collection, that we have released, just about Libya alone.”

 Rather than have Hillary’s Libyan arms shipment scheme exposed to the public, the Obama administration dropped the case against Turi.

Turi’s lawyers said a trial would have embarrassed the administration and shed light on how Obama and Clinton armed radical Islamists like ISIS.

Poltico also reports:

“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.”
