Obama Spent Our Money Trying to Unseat Netanyahu

Given the leadership vacuum in the USA, you might say that Benjamin Netanyahu is the leader of the free world. He is the only prominent leader taking a clear, principled stand in favor of preserving Western Civilization on crucial issues like the spread of Islamic radicalism and Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. Barack Obama consequently dislikes him — so much that he spent our money trying to dislodge him from office:

The Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations disclosed in a massive report on Tuesday that the Obama administration provided U.S. taxpayer dollars to the OneVoice Movement, a liberal group that waged a clandestine campaign to smear and oust Netanyahu from office.

OneVoice, which was awarded $465,000 in U.S. grants through 2014, has been under congressional investigation since 2015, when it was first accused of funneling money to partisan political groups looking to unseat Netanyahu. This type of behavior by non-profit groups is prohibited under U.S. tax law.

That must be why the State Department deleted emails relevant to the OneVoice campaign.

The investigation determined that OneVoice redirected State Department funds to anti-Netanyahu efforts and that U.S. officials subsequently erased emails containing information about the administration’s relationship with the non-profit group. …

“The State Department was unable to produce all documents responsive to the Subcommittee’s requests due to its failure to retain complete email records of Michael Ratney, who served as U.S. Consul General in Jerusalem during the award and oversight of the OneVoice grants,” the report states.

Investigators “discovered this retention problem because one important email exchange between OneVoice and Mr. Ratney … was produced to the Subcommittee only by OneVoice,” the report continues.

Ratney admits to deleting the emails, while gibbering lame excuses about ignorance and server space. This would appear to be a violation of the Federal Records Act.

Shrillary isn’t the only one who should be facing indictment.

Why can Israel still produce leaders but not the USA?
