By Gary Berntsen:
Never has there been such an avalanche of information to indicate corruption, cronyism, pay for play, influence peddling and illegality in the handling of classified information as there has been around Bill and Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, The Department of State and the Campaign to elect Hillary Clinton to the Presidency. The daily dumps from Wiki-leaks, revelations from emails released by the U.S. Government in regards to the Clinton Foundation and Department of State, and the most recent revelation of yet another load of emails coming off the computer of repeat sexting offender ex- Congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged spouse of Clinton principal staff aide Huma Abedin, are in total record breaking. The only thing equally astounding is the almost universal willingness of a corrupt media to turn a blind eye.
The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act was created in the 1970’s to deal with organized crime. Specifically, RICO allows the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes which they ordered others to do or assist them in doing. RICO is the perfect tool for use against The Clintons and their Foundation for her sale of influence at the Department of State. Hillary’s other offenses seemed limitless and include destruction of government records (33,000, emails), mishandling of classified material, perjury, the establishment of double dipping schemes for her key Department of State staff where her key employees all got second salaries from the Clinton Foundation, and payoffs that gave the Russians control of 25 percent of U.S. Uranium production and dozens of instances of dollars given to her husband in return for access to her. No rules, no laws applied to her. No shame is felt. With acts of crime ten times more significant than Ma Barker, Hillary looks into the camera and says earnestly, “I just want to take care of the children”.
Should Hillary Clinton win the Presidency, she will immediately become the Defendant-in-Chief and her staff aides all re-titled as co-conspirators. A judge somewhere will hear this case. One would have to be a far-left partisan or a moron not to believe that pursuit and prosecution of Hillary Clinton is certain to follow. Should she lose the Presidential race, President Obama is likely to issue her a pardon. President Obama knows all too well that Hillary’s time at the helm of the Department of State will be a humiliating Exhibit A in the RICO prosecution to come, which will draw close to him. Other pardons such as that of former senior IRS officials that targeted conservative organizations on behalf of the White House and Democratic Party prior to the 2012 Presidential Election will also need to be cauterized to protect President Obama’s legacy.
We are days away from learning whether Americans fully appreciate the size and scope of crimes committed by Hillary Clinton, the Obama administration and the criminal enterprise that she has built and continues to leverage.
