Larry Klayman and seven others are filing a RICO complaint against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Ban Ki Moon and the Hamas Organization in the US District Court in Washington DC, case no. No. 14-1484. According to WND, the case has been advanced to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

A person might say “so what? Klayman has made a career out of filing lawsuits against individuals and government entities, even his own mother”. But whether you consider that to be legitimate or not, this RICO complaint lays out the law and the reasons why these people are liable under the US RICO statutes for the damage they have done by their support of Hamas, and in exactly what ways they have supported Hamas illegally in its attacks on Israel, Jews and Christians. In other words, whether you are a fan of Larry Klayman or not, the RICO complaint is educational.
Shurat HaDin in Israel has had considerable success at suing organizations, individuals and banks for damages caused by terror attacks and support of terror organizations. Larry Klayman’s suit follows along that line, using the RICO organized crime statute for the first time. His lawsuit calls for monetary damages to be paid to the American citizens and their families who are victims of Hamas attacks on Israel, and a jury trial that includes each defendant, whether individually or as a group.
How likely is this to bring Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Ban Ki Moon and Hamas representatives to court? Not very likely, even if the case is heard, which is also unlikely. the problem is of course that the Justice Department, the Federal Courts and the Federal Agencies and the State Department are all controlled by the executive branch, which is to say, the president. Seeing this case being brought to trial would mean either that Obama was willing to allow himself to sued, or that he has lost control of his administration.
