A former criminal prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday filed a RICO ( Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) complaint in federal court in the District of Columbia against President Barack Obama and present or former members of his administration -- including Hillary Clinton and John Kerry -- for their alleged material support for the terrorist group Hamas.
According to a 54-page RICO complaint filed in civil court by attorney Larry Klayman, who served in the Reagan Department of Justice, the defendants in the complaint created and used a State Department "slush fund" to provide the Islamic terrorist group Hamas millions of taxpayer dollars despite the group being listed as a designated terrorist organization.
Hamas is an extremist Muslim organization considered a subsidiary of Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood. Klayman, on behalf of several family members of dual-citizens (Israel and the United States) who were killed by Hamas members, filed the complaint against: President Barack Hussein Obama; Hamas; Secretary of State John Kerry; former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; Ban Ki-Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations; and President Obama's half-brother Malik Obama who is listed as an officer with the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a U.S. corporation.
While Obama's sycophants call Klayman a Republican partisan, his past lawsuits were filed against Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and other Democrats and Republicans.
Klayman, who founded Judicial Watch and later Freedom Watch, while a DOJ prosecutor is credited with helping to break up AT&T in a landmark case. On behalf of the complainants he has filed a civil lawsuit -- Case No. 14-1484 -- under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act "RICO" for criminal acts. Freedom Watch is a nonpartisan, nonprofit government watchdog that claims to use the civil court system to expose political and government corruption regardless of party affiliation.
The complaint alleges that defendants laundered cash and gave it to the terrorist group Hamas who control the Gaza Strip that borders Israel. "This money has been been foreseeably used to buy rockets and construct tunnels to attack Israel and terrorize and kill American and dual American-Israeli citizens who reside or are located in Israel," according to Klayman.
The RICO complaint filed on Thursday accuses President Obama, Secretary Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and others of being involved in a conspiracy to provide hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars to Hamas. While the money was given as humanitarian aid for the Palestinian people it was allegedly used to purchased weapons including guns, rocket propelled grenades and launchers, missiles, and other military contraband. It was allegedly used to also purchase materials to build hidden tunnels to be used by terrorists to attack targets in Israel.
According to news stories from Voice of America (VOA) and the New York Times, when Hamas' chief financial officer's bomb-charred auto was examined by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) "they confirmed that these U.S. dollars, only some of which was found in his bombed out car, has predictably fallen into the hands of HAMAS's terrorist wing which controls and was elected by Gazans to govern over them."
"The nation and the world have increasingly come to see that Obama views himself primarily as a Muslim and acts accordingly in favoring Islamic interests over Judeo-Christian ones, and the complaint lays out Obama's history in documented detail. This includes his actions calculated to harm the nation of Israel. His facilitating and ordering financial and other material aid to HAMAS, along with his equally anti-Israel Secretaries of State Kerry and Clinton, and the U.N. Secretary General, is just the latest deadly chapter in what amounts to criminal activity which has logically resulted in harm and death to Jews and Christians and threatens the continued existence of Israel. That is why he and the other defendants were sued under RICO and other relevant laws."
Besides the RICO lawsuit, Klayman is representing the families of members of Navy SEAL Team 6 -- the elite special forces who killed Osama bin Laden -- who died after their helicopter was shot down by the Taliban in Afghanistan three months after the bin Laden raid. Klayman contends the Obama administration put the Navy SEALs at risk by disclosing the team's identity.
