In a blatant act of political assassination Obama is using his personal hit man, Eric Holder, to destroy a fellow Democrat who had the audacity to disagree with him on Iran.
After Senator Menendez Stood Up to Obama on Iran, Holder to Charge Him w/Corruption
Let’s get one thing out of the way, the administration bringing charges has openly sold ambassadorships to donors and bundlers.
It has arranged for huge grants to companies owned by its donors. Holder, who moved these charges forward, got involved in the pardon of Marc Rich, a wanted fugitive, in the hopes that he would get the Attorney General spot.
So whatever the merits of the case are, this is political. Top Democrats like Rangel and Reid have committed blatantly illegal acts. As Senate Majority Leader, Reid worked to aid Chinese business interests linked to his son. Hillary Clinton’s brother got a special mining concession from Haiti. Menendez isn’t being charged because of the merits of the case.
He’s being charged because he stood up to Obama on Iran. The timing here isn’t coincidental.
