Lawyer filed supplement with ‘newly discovered information’
Klayman submitted copies of a Washington Times report that the Clintons’ foundation “set up a fundraising arm in Sweden that collected $26 million in donations at the same time that country was lobbying Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department to forgo sanctions that threatened its thriving business with Iran.”
Further, another article submitted by Klayman, from the Miami Herald, reported banks were paying huge fees to Bill Clinton for speeches at a delicate time.
“Many of the speeches and donations were made at times when the host banks were under Justice Department scrutiny. … All told, the same 11 banks have paid more than $81 billion – yes, that’s with a B – over the last six years to resolve federal investigations into alleged corruption,” the report said.
The case charges the Clintons schemed “to reap hundreds of millions of dollars personally and for their foundation by selling government access and influence.”
The server needs to the obtained, Klayman said, because Hillary Clinton used it in place of a required government system for all her emails as secretary of state, and it likely would contain documents pertinent to the allegations, Klayman said.
Hillary Clinton has said the drive was wiped, but he noted there are processes to recover documents.
“The gravamen of the RICO enterprise consists largely of the two major predicate acts as pled in plaintiff’s amended complaint including defendant Hillary Clinton selling waivers to companies doing business in Iran while secretary of state in exchange for donations for The Clinton Foundation and large speaking fees to her husband and later herself,” the motion continues.
“It is these documents concerning the criminal enterprise which are likely to remain on Hillary Clinton’s personal servers,” Klayman wrote. “In addition, documents concerning another major predicate act involve Hillary Clinton’s release of classified information concerning Israeli war plans.”
He explained the details were released and were “designed to thwart an Israeli preemptive strike to damage or destroy Iran’s nuclear weapons capability by revealing Israeli strategic plans to forward base military operations.”
“This is why the court must take custody of the defendants’ email hard drives to preserve this material evidence,” Klayman wrote.
“Defendants, in particular Hillary Clinton, destroyed emails which plaintiff had requested under the Freedom of Information Act, concerning her sale of waivers as secretary of state to do business with the Islamic Republic of Iran and her participation principally in the criminal release of classified government information involving American and Israeli cyber-warfare to destroy or severely cripple Iranian atomic centrifuges and also the release to New York Times reporter David Sanger of classified Israeli war plans to wage a preemptive air attack to eliminate Iranian nuclear facilities,” he said.
WND previously reported a federal judge in Florida scheduled a trial for January for the case charging the Clintons with RICO violations.
Klayman, for years a Washington watchdog, engaged Bill Clinton in court battles during his presidency. Klayman also has taken on terror interests and foreign influences in the United States. Recently, he won a federal court judgment against the National Security Agency’s spy-on-Americans program and brought a case against Obama over his amnesty-by-executive-memo strategy.
The order setting the case for trial comes from Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks, U.S. district judge for the Southern District of Florida in West Palm Beach.
Klayman told WND that it’s time for the Clintons “finally [to] be held legally accountable.”
He alleges their “criminal enterprise” dates back at least 10 years.
When the Clintons left the White House in 2000, they were “broke,” Hillary Clinton has claimed.
Estimates are that since that time, they have been paid well over $100 million, oftentimes in $250,000 and $500,000 increments for speaking. Speaking fees for Bill Clinton have been as high as $750,000.
The Clintons’ foundation also has been embroiled in scandal recently, with foreign governments making donations to the Clinton-controlled organization during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as a senior government official.
“Plaintiff sues the defendants, as individuals operating a criminal enterprise, for violating plaintiff’s statutory rights to obtain documents under the Freedom of Information Act … for violating plaintiff’s due process rights, vested property rights, constitutional rights, and for misappropriating property,” the filing says.
The complaint explains: “Plaintiff has filed many Freedom of Information Act requests for public records created or held by the U.S. Department of State … which records are of the public interest and importance to the citizens of the United States. … As it has now been revealed, a primary reason that the plaintiff did not receive the records to which the plaintiff is entitled by law is that Defendant Hillary Clinton – upon information and belief together with Cheryl Mills and Defendant Bill Clinton and other Clinton ‘loyalists’ – set up a private computer file server operating a private, stand-alone electronic mail system.”
It alleges Clinton’s “off the books” plan “concealed from the plaintiff public records to which the plaintiff was entitled to under the FOIA Act.”
It continues: “Using those concealed communications held on the private email server, upon information and belief, the defendants negotiated, arranged and implemented the sale of influence and access to U.S. government officials and decision-makers and official acts by State and other instrumentalities of the U.S. government in return for gratuitous and illegal payments – bribes – disguised as donations to defendant The Clinton Foundation and extraordinarily high speaking fees paid to Defendant Bill Clinton and Defendant Hillary Clinton.”
