Huffington Post takes down item claiming Hillary will be indicted


The Huffington Post removed an article on its website Sunday that claimed the FBI plans to pursue an indictment against Hillary Clinton on federal racketeering charges.

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a United States Federal Law passed in 1970 that was designed to provide a tool for law enforcement agencies to fight organized crime. RICO allows prosecution and punishment for alleged racketeering activity that has been executed as part of an ongoing criminal enterprise.

Activity considered to be racketeering may include bribery, counterfeiting, money laundering, embezzlement, illegal gambling, kidnapping, murder, drug trafficking, slavery, and a host of other nefarious business practices.

James Comey and The FBI will present a recommendation to Loretta Lynch, Attorney General of 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.

Strange that a left wing site would allow such an item to be posted. Some are suggesting the publication of the item is some kind of play to pave they way to real FBI action against Clinton.

Maybe, but my own view at this stage is it was just a rogue blogger at the Huffington Post. The post can be seen at this archive service.
