Prosecutors Drop Charges Against 11 of 15 Turkish Officials in D.C. Brawl

Prosecutors Drop Charges Against 11 of 15 Turkish Officials in D.C. Brawl

Last year, tensions between America and Turkey rose after members of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s security detail attacked and beat up protesters outside of the Turkish embassy.

Those tensions may ease since federal prosecutors have decided to drop charges against 11 of the 15 men charged…even though people caught the brawl on tape.

From The Wall Street Journal:

Prosecutors first asked a judge in November to dismiss charges against four members of Mr. Erdogan’s security detail. Then they dropped charges against seven others on Feb. 14, the day before Secretary of State Rex Tillerson flew to Ankara for a meeting with Mr. Erdogan meant to ease tensions. Among those freed of legal jeopardy immediately before the high-level meeting was the head of Mr. Erdogan’s security team.

U.S. officials said that no one pressured prosecutors to drop any of the charges for political reasons. Instead, the decisions were the result of investigators misidentifying some of the suspects and failing to develop enough evidence against others, according to the U.S. officials and an attorney who provided some free legal advice to defendants in the case.

Mr. Tillerson, in his private talks with Turkish leaders, pointed to the decisions to drop charges—which hadn’t been publicized or announced—as an example of how the U.S. had addressed Mr. Erdogan’s grievances, according to administration officials familiar with the talks.

Here’s the video if you need a reminder what these thugs did to the protesters. Just a reminder, we have the right to a peaceful protest in America. I know this is foreign under Erdogan’s dictatorship.

This brawl sent nine people to the hospital. The jerks injured one police officer and two members of the Secret Service.

Erdogan lashed out at the arrests and charges as he insisted his security detail did all this to protect him…except he was YARDS away from the fight. He also placed blame on the police and Secret Service because they didn’t do enough to keep the groups separate.

Okay, bro. The State Department summoned the Turkish Ambassador to the US Serdar Kılıç, which led the Turks to recall our ambassador.

this what happens when we leasve our NATO base in Turkey after an I-Slamist thug has taken over.

Time to remove our Nukes from Turkey, they are there to PROTECT the EuroTrash.

If we want to keep Nukes in Europe, we need to think about Poland as a destination.
I’m not fond of the Poles, but they have a memory of Russia and the Muslims.

Is this credible?

    Sure, but only after someone from the State Department probably visited and ‘helped’ clarify issues of identification for the investigators.

    Milhouse…all those Turkish bodyguards look alike…

    Given the Assistant US Attorney (AUSA) was (were?) sufficiently sure of the ID and actions of the individuals to take it to a Grand Jury and obtain indictments against all these people – not really likely.

Nothing says how Muslims intend to rule us like a set of crystal-clear pictures, plus videos, taken on a beautiful sunny day in our own nation’s capital, of Muslims kicking American citizens. Jihad for all the world to see. Now if the world would only remove their blindfolds.

Your new masters will not be kind.

wow. Is this what we have to look forward to in the future?
