(Truth Revolt) Fox News analyst and former judge Andrew Napolitano recently posted a Washington Times op-ed called “Hillary’s Secret War,” in which he declares with certainty that Hillary Clinton “provided material assistance to terrorists and lied to Congress in a venue where the law required her to be truthful.”
Napolitano came to this conclusion after reading the transcript of an interview with a lawfully licensed American arms dealer named Marc Turi, as well as emails to and from the State Department and congressional officials while Hillary was Secretary of State.
In 2011, Turi received approval from the Departments of State and Treasury to sell “hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of arms to the government of Qatar, which then, at the request of American government officials, were sold, bartered or given to rebel groups in Libya and Syria.”
Napolitano states that Clinton “obtained permission from President Obama and consent from congressional leaders in both houses of Congress and in both parties to arm rebels in Syria and Libya in an effort to overthrow the governments of those countries.”
Many of those rebels were terrorist groups who are our sworn enemies. “There was no congressional declaration of war, no congressional vote, no congressional knowledge beyond fewer than a dozen members, and no federal statute that authorized this.”
When Sen. Rand Paul asked Clinton at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Jan. 23, 2013, whether she knew about American arms shipped to the Middle East or anywhere else, she denied any knowledge. But at that time,
she and her State Department political designee, Andrew Shapiro, had authorized thousands of shipments of billions of dollars’ worth of arms to U.S. enemies to fight her secret war. Among the casualties of her war were U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three colleagues, who were assassinated at the American consulate in Benghazi, by rebels Mrs. Clinton armed with American military hardware in violation of American law.
This secret war and the criminal behavior that animated it was the product of conspirators in the White House, the State Department, the Treasury Department, the Justice Department, the CIA and a tight-knit group of members of Congress. Their conspiracy has now unraveled. Where is the outrage among the balance of Congress?
Hillary Clinton lied to Congress, gave arms to terrorists and destroyed her emails. How much longer can she hide the truth? How much longer can her lawlessness go unchallenged and unprosecuted? Does she really think the American voters will overlook her criminal behavior and put her in the White House where she can pardon herself?
