(WorldNetDaily) – Bill and Hillary Clinton, a former president and a candidate for the Oval Office, on Friday were notified through court filings in federal court in Florida of the dates of their depositions in a case that alleges they violated the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
The filings, submitted by attorney Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, sets Bill Clinton’s deposition for 9 a.m. July 29 at the offices of a Washington law firm and Hillary Clinton’s deposition a day earlier at the same time and place.
“Such deposition will be upon oral examination conducted before a Notary Public in and for the District of Columbia, or some other officer duly authorized by law to take depositions, and will continue until completed and is being taken for discovery purposes, for use at trial, or any other purpose permitted,” the notices state.
Klayman earlier argued against a motion that the case be dismissed.
The well-known Washington watchdog has sued the Clinton Foundation and Bill and Hillary Clinton under RICO for allegedly running a criminal enterprise.
A federal court in Florida already has scheduled a trial for early next year.
“This is a classic RICO lawsuit,” Klayman argued in a recent filing, “Indeed … few people – if any – can even attempt to refute the hard evidence that Bill and Hillary Clinton and their foundation have over a 10-year history of actually selling government access and influence in exchange for hard cash to fill their coffers and the coffers of their foundation, which not coincidentally, as pled, does not operate as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization but instead operates as defendants Bill and Hillary Clinton’s own alter-ego in furthering their criminal enterprise.”
He said the case is about much more than access to hidden documents, which he is seeking.
“The production of documents at issue is relevant because they evidence a criminal enterprise under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act … created and further by each of the defendants, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, acting in concert as part of a conspiracy, to extort hundreds of millions of dollars in money – that is, bribes – from individuals, entities and persons upon which the defendants have bestowed favors and gratuities, principally in the form of granting waivers to do business with Iran. ”
The allegations, he explained, set “forth all of the operative facts to plead a valid RICO claim.”
