This past weekend, a writer for the Huffington Post reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) will pursue a criminal indictment against Hillary Clinton. However, it’s what happened next that has everyone talking.
According to The Political Insider, the piece was called “Hillary Clinton to be Indicted On Federal Racketeering Charges” and it was quickly removed after it went viral. The article was written by scientist Frank Hugenard, who had his account disabled without explanation by HuffPo editors after his article was deleted.
Hugenard claimed to have sources in the FBI who say the agency is preparing to recommend racketeering charges against Hillary. Here’s an excerpt from his article:
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.
Huffington Post Politics senior editor Sam Stein claimed to not know why the post was removed and refused to comment on it.
“Sorry. I don’t know,” he said. “I’d direct your question to a blog editor.”
