Le Pen under investigation for sharing photos of terrorist violence.

A previous presidential candidate  in France has been charged for sharing images online that expose the brutality of the Islamic State terrorist group.

French prosecutors filed charges on Thursday against Marine Le Pen for tweeting images of radical Islamic terrorists killing innocent civilians.

La Pen now faces up to three years in prison and a 75,000-euro ($90,000 in U.S.) fine for the “distribution of violent images.”

The tweets she shared are from December 2015 and revealed ISIS extremists carrying out acts of violence against civilians.

One photo depicted the killing of American reporter James Foley, which shocked the world in 2015 as the Obama administration sat idle and did nothing.

Le Pen said she tweeted out the photographs during the presidential election to show voters the French government needed to do more to combat the terrorist group.

On Thursday, Le Pen told BFM television the charges against her are “clearly aimed at silencing me. Yet I will not be silenced.”

She said she would consider a potential criminal conviction as a “medal of patriotism and defense of the French people.”

Rodolphe Bosselut, Le Pen’s lawyer in the case, said the French government is clearly using trumped up charges against her.

Le Pen’s French-first, anti-mass migration stances propelled her into the national spotlight as she aimed to mimic President Donald Trump’s 2016 election strategy.

While she lost the election to Emmanuel Macron, she has continued to lead the National Front to oppose the French government’s open borders policies.

Le Pen is clearly being targeted for sharing information that keeps the attention on the barbaric terrorist group, which exposes France for failing to help in the war on terror.

As the United States has been endlessly bombing and annihilating ISIS, Le Pen was tweeting the photographs to show the world why the radical terrorist group must be defeated.

It’s sad to see someone could be charged for sharing photos exposing ISIS’ brutality and the need to wipe them off the face of the earth.
