Racketeering Lawsuit Filed Against Hillary Clinton
The conservative group Freedom Watch has filed a racketeering lawsuit against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that accuses her of failing to produce documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The civil suit, filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, argues that Clinton used her private emails to sell access to other officials in return for donations to the Clinton Foundation.
It alleges that, during her tenure, Clinton withheld documents requested under FOIA regarding State Department waivers given to businesses or individuals doing business with Iran, possibly undermining U.S.-imposed sanctions.
The complaint, which lists Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation as defendants, alleges the Clintons sold access to other U.S. government officials in return for donations to their organization, which they concealed, allegedly, by using a private computer server for her emails operated from their home in Chappaqua, New York.
The Court Complaint File
Plaintiff sues the Defendants, as individuals operating a criminal enterprise, for
violating Plaintiff’s statutory rights to obtain documents under the Freedom of Information
Act (“FOIA”), 5 U.S.C. § 552, for violating Plaintiff’s due process rights, vested property
rights, constitutional rights, and for misappropriating property. The Defendants have
systematically and continuously, over the last ten (10) years and more, conducted a corrupt
enterprise in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (“RICO”) Act,
all of which acts are continuing in nature. As grounds therefore, Plaintiff alleges as follows:

It is about time. We need to start holding these criminals accountable for their fleecing of the American People and flagrant disregard for the law.
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding potential criminal violations of law in Hillary Clinton’s conducting official State Department business using a private email account:
“The latest news that Hillary Clinton, while serving as Secretary of State, conducted all of her official business on a private account may impact nearly a dozen of our Freedom of Information Act lawsuits now active in federal courts as well as dozens of pending FOIA requests. As with what happened when Judicial Watch forced the disclosure of the ‘missing’ IRS emails, I am convinced that these emails would never have been disclosed but for our FOIA lawsuits that broke open the Benghazi scandal and first exposed the scandal of her and Bill Clinton raising money illicitly while she was Secretary of State.
“We are concerned that the Obama administration may have withheld material information and may have purposely misled and lied to Judicial Watch, as well as at least one federal court about these emails.

I've never heard of a lawsuit for racketeering. If the allegations they make are correct she should be charged under the RICO act,
Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. ......
