The funny thing about running for president is, it becomes much more difficult when you are constantly tangled up in the legal system.
Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been ordered to give depositions in a civil case investigating the pair’s growing email scandal.
Mrs. Clinton will giver her deposition on the morning of July 28 in Washington, and Mr. Clinton will give his the following morning, according to copies of the notices of deposition reviewed by The Washington Times.
The case, filed by Freedom Watch founder and former federal prosecutor Larry Klayman, alleges the couple committed criminal violations under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
According to a statement from Freedom Watch, the suit alleges Mrs. Clinton, the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic nomination, covered up these crimes by destroying her personal emails sent during her time as Secretary of State.
It’s nothing new for the Clinton’s to break rules for their own personal gain, but if lost, this case could have serious political and personal consequences for the Democrat power couple. Racketeering is no joke.
The Hill explains what Bill Clinton will be forced to address:
The racketeering lawsuit, which lists Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation as defendants, alleges that the former secretary of State used a private email server at their home in New York to sell access to other officials in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation.
