I signed on to Facebook today, and noticed a headline by The Huffington Post that read, “Hillary Clinton to be Indicted on Federal Racketeering Charges. RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act).” However, once I clicked on the post, it brought me to a page that said the article was no longer available. Luckily, I was able to find another source reporting on the upcoming indictment for Hillary Clinton.
According to USA Politics 24, “FBI Director James Comey will present evidence, and a recommendation to Loretta Lynch, Attorney General for the Department of Justice, that includes a cogent argument that the Clinton Foundation is an ongoing criminal enterprise engaged in money laundering and soliciting bribes in exchange for political, policy and legislative favors to individuals, corporations and even governments both foreign and domestic.”
For those who aren’t aware, RICO is a Federal Law passed in 1970 that is usually used by law enforcement as a means to prosecute organized crime, and drug cartels. RICO grants law enforcement the ability to target these organizations for a myriad of crimes such as bribery, counterfeiting, money laundering, embezzlement, illegal gambling, kidnapping, murder, drug trafficking, slavery, and other racketeering activities.
It seems that the investigation into Hillary’s private server has produced evidence well beyond violations of State Department regulation, and the Federal Records Act, since the scope continued to expand and cover suspicion of espionage, perjury, and influence peddling.
In the past, many journalists have investigated claims of both Bill and Hillary selling their influence through the family’s foundation. The New York Times investigated Bill’s association to Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining financier, who sits on the Clinton Foundation’s board, and has given millions of dollars to the Foundation, including previously undisclosed donations adding up to $2.35 million. In the article, the NYT suspects Clinton aided Giustra’s company in procuring a profitable uranium-mining deal in Kazakhstan, in exchange for “a flow of cash” to the Clinton Foundation.
Thanks to such journalistic investigations, we know that tens of millions of dollars that have been donated to the Clinton Foundation were channeled through a Canadian shell company, thus making the donors practically impossible to connect. We also know that the Foundation has taken in much more than it has given out. According to the Foundation’s own documents, only 10% has gone out to any form of charity. When Hillary learned an official investigation had been launched into her use of a private server, she ordered her computer maintenance employee to delete over 30,000 emails, as well as any backups of emails. Reportedly, the FBI was able to recover most, if not all, of these deleted emails, that reveal evidence of her attempts to cover up much of her illegal activity.
In order to obtain a RICO conviction, the DoJ will have to prove the defendant participated in two or more acts of racketeering, and show the defendant maintained an interest in, or participated in criminal enterprise involving interstate or foreign commerce. Section 1503 (obstruction of justice), section 1510 (obstruction of criminal investigations), and section 1511 (obstruction of State or local law enforcement) of the RICO law, will most likely be Hillary’s biggest downfall.
These revelations go well beyond negligence, and improper handling of classified information, which is also a Federal Crime under United State Code (USC) 18 section 1924.
Given the fact that Bill and Hillary have had political careers for over 40 years, it’s possible the extent of their crimes stretch out to others in their party, or even the DNC itself. Since The Hillary Victory Fund has been set up by the DNC, has been operating much like a Ponzi scheme, and has had millions of dollars funneling into it from Democratic State Parties, as well as from political donors, it’s entirely possible there are strong links of criminal activity between the DNC, and Hillary Clinton. Ironically, this could very well be the end of the Democratic Party, after months of predicting that Donald Trump, the Republican presumptive nominee, would be the cause of the RNC’s demise. Now, the Republican Party has banded together behind their pick for president, and the DNC is now in danger of “going down” with what WAS their likely presidential candidate.
R.I.P. Democratic National Committee (1848-2016). You’ve lived a good 168 years. I’d say we will miss you, but then I’d be lying.
