Before you dismiss this out of hand. Take a look at the Law. It seems to apply.




The RICO Act was created as part of the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970. As a product of two sets of Congressional hearings that took place in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the act's main focus was on measures that would be prohibitive to gambling organizations. Sponsored by Senator John Little McClellan and drafted by G. Robert Blakey, the Rico Act was signed into law by President Richard Nixon on 15 October 1970.


Yes, it was designed for Organized Crime. Since then it has been applied to many activities.

Here is one example of how broad this law is...



RICO has been applied to cases in which at least one component of racketeering is involved. A prime example is the Mohawk Industries case that the U.S. Supreme Court reviewed in 2006, in which the flooring company was charged with hiring illegal aliens — one of the violations the RICO Act classified under racketeering. In this case and many others in which the RICO Act has been used, the Mafia was not even involved.


The sentences can be quite long.



RICO sets criminal penalties for racketeering activity. Convicted persons are fined or sentenced to prison for as long as 20 years. In some cases, however, the defendant can receive a life sentence. This can occur when the violation is based on a crime for which the maximum penalty includes life imprisonment.


This poorly written law was a desperate attempt to go after organized crime.

I believe this law would cover the illegal activities of the IRS.



In legal terms, racketeering refers to conducting a business, or business activities, in an illegal manner or by using illegal means. Sometimes the entire business itself is illegal, such as drug trafficking, child pornography, or human trafficking. In other examples, however, the business itself may be legal, but the tactics or practices used in the business are illegal, such as extortion or money laundering. There are a number of crimes that may be part of an illegal enterprise, such as loan sharking, theft, and embezzlement, as well as bribery, counterfeiting, and kidnapping.


To be serious for a second. I really do not want to see the President impeached.

However, I think it is time to end the IRS. These people are out of control.

Look at these people. The balls it takes to waste our money on this crap.



I would like some feedback on the Rico Act and it's impact on the current situation.

Wouldn't it be something if the law written to give the prosecutors sweeping power.

Is the very law that takes down the IRS....Al Capone would be smiling in Hell.

That would be too good to be true.
There is wishful thinking however.

I bet at the bottom in fine print it says:
'U.S.Government Agencies exempt from prosecution'

RICO should apply.

The U.S. Government 'officials' ARE organized criminals.

But who prosecutes ?

Holder


Fat chance.

We will have to wait.

Obama's legacy will be as good as rusty water dripping on an old concrete floor.

You are probably right.

Not sure if the IRS employee can be prosecuted under Rico.

Yes the law applies.

But if you think the IRS, The Fed and all the other string pullers don't already own the courts....

If they have gotten to the Judicial Branch.

We are in worse shape than I thought.

If this IRS stuff is proved....It definitely is a Conspiracy.

The Internal Revenue Service is NOT a "business", as defined by law, so the RICO Act would not apply to either the organization itself, nor to any employee of the IRS who is/was engaged in the execution of his/her assigned duties as an employee of the IRS.

No laws broken.


If you do not like the laws, as they are written, seek to change the laws.

Either was the Mafia?

Rico is a very broad law. It is so broad (If you read it) you could make a case.

Don't think the IRS is untouchable. They have no specific immunity from criminal prosecution.

PS...Never said anything about not liking any laws?

The mafia is/was engaged in (multiple) business(es) enterprise(s); many of which are/where defined as illegal.

The IRS is not engaged in any "business" enterprise (as defined by law).


Although individual employees of the IRS may have engaged in illegal activities, and would/should be subject to prosecution; the agency itself, has not violated any of the provisions set forth under the RICO statute.

OK, I said it was a stretch.

However, a conspiracy by people in the IRS to deny groups the right to assemble.

At very least it is a civil rights violation. But you are probably right.

They will find some way to weasel out of it. I was kind of reaching.

We could also use "RICO" on other corrupt groups like the FDA, or the DEA.

What about congress taking bribes to enact laws from which businesses will profit? Aren't they functioning as part of an ongoing criminal conspiracy?



Very clever, OP. Nicely done.

Yeah but Rico is designed to take down EVERYONE involved in the case to be tried the same....How would the president, or anyone in his office get out of a Rico trial on the IRS????

You said you don't want the president held accountable but I don't think that is possible in this case....

Good luck trying to get hundreds, if not thousands of IRS employees, government officials, political friends, etc tried on the same charge......It would be thrown out so fast it wouldn't even see a judge for a looksy

Lots of laws apply to lots of said traitors and crooks.

No one falls from grace unless it was planned and serves the puppet masters and their globalist goals.

Clinton was outrageous but sailed through RELATIVELY easily. 1/10th what he sailed through would have scuttled Nixon far earlier.

Now we have O committing 100's of times worse treason and destruction to the Constitution and the Republic.

They MAY have scheduled him to be a scapegoat for achieving the great destructions they ordered him to achieve . . . but I don't think quite yet. He won't fall from grace unless they have planned it and order it regardless of how many laws he has broken how outrageously.

THEY are immune from the laws they eagerly burden the rest of us with.

As Kissinger said . . .





133."The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer." Henry Kissinger


132."Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy." Henry Kissinger, quoted by Bob Woodward in The Final Days, 1976



And as TEDDY ROOSEVELT said:




26. Teddy Roosevelt "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned that way".





twoday.net...


twga...


One can hope and pray .. . . . however, I suspect that whoever supplants O will be even worse, if that's remotely possible. Hillary would likely be meaner and even MORE ruthless and murderous.
