Freedom Watch files racketeering lawsuit against Clintons for stonewalling on Hillary’s emails

Hillary Clinton’s email troubles have just gotten worse.

A Florida-based political advocacy group filed a racketeering lawsuit naming as Bill and Hillary Clinton Wednesday over their to produce documents as requested under the Freedom of Information Act.

In addition to the former president an the former first lady, the lawsuit by Freedom Watch names the Clinton Foundation as defendants, according to The Hill.

 Larry Klayman, Freedom Watch founder, called the lawsuit the “only hard-hitting case to address the growing email scandal.”

Filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, the civil lawsuit alleges that the Clinton Foundation meets the definition of a corrupt organization as defined in the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO.

The complaint alleges that Hillary Clinton “arranged donations to … The Clinton Foundation and large speaking fees … in return for official government actions, policies, statements, and/or access to and from State, the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives or other parts of the U.S. Government, and arranging other political benefits using the leverage of her official position.”

Klayman said in a statement:

“This is the first and only hard-hitting case to address the growing email scandal. What Hillary Clinton, her husband, and their foundation have done is nothing new. It is simply part of a criminal enterprise which dates back at least 10 years, all designed to enrich themselves personally at the expense of the American people and our nation. It’s time, however, that they finally be held legally accountable.”

Twitter users gushed support.

And then there was this alternative Hillary 2016 prediction:
