Trial Date Set For RICO Lawsuit Against The Clintons and Their Foundation
With each news cycle revealing some new way that Bill and Hillary Clinton are mismanaging their fame and running a seemingly-corrupt political empire, the news that a trial date has been set for a lawsuit against the Clintons and their foundation is relieving.
On January 20, 2016, a judge in the Southern District Court of Florida will hear a Racketeering, Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) lawsuit filed on behalf of a watchdog legal organization "Freedom Watch."
That date will be important to the Clintons as it is near the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire Primary, key events in the upcoming 2016 presidential race. A poor showing or suspicious dodge of the suit could have Hillary slinging mud on her own presidential campaign.
Of special note with the lawsuit is the request by the plaintiff, Larry Klayman, that a private and neutral forensic expert seize Hillary Clinton's private email server that she used while serving as Secretary of State. That request could look bad for the Clintons if the email server is somehow "misplaced" or destroyed.
Perhaps the most damning portion of the lawsuit against the Clintons is the allegation that Hillary Clinton used her clout as Secretary of State to wheedle donors into giving to the Clinton Foundation. This point, though hard to verify if it's true, would significantly harm Hillary's credibility, especially if she seeks to use her experience as Secretary of State to inflate her bona fides for being president.
Thankfully, this lawsuit isn't swilling around in the ether waiting to be brought to trial. The district court judge who scheduled the trial should be commended for not bowing to political nobility and scheduling the trial without delay.
For Hillary and Bill I have only a few words--the buck stops here. It's time for the American public to know and understand what you've done with your political clout and, if you've done wrong, we expect justice to be served.
