Former Secret Service Agent Gary J. Byrne, an outspoken critic of the Clintons since he left the White House and their employ, has filed a RICO lawsuit against former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a list of others.
The nature of the suit, according to the filed documents, is “racketeer-influenced and corrupt organizations.”
In addition to the Clintons, Byrne names a number of Clinton associates and supporters as defendants, including:
* Clinton Foundation
* Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership
* Media Matters For America
* Correct the Record
* American Bridge 21st Century
* David Brock
* George Soros
* John Podesta
Byrne also names fellow veteran Secret Service Agent and CNN Law Enforcement Analyst Jonathan Wackrow as a defendant in the suit.
As of Wednesday, electronic summons had been issued to all named defendants and Byrne had filed a certificate of disclosure titled “Corporate Affiliations and Financial Interests.”
Byrne threatened to file suit against several of the defendants in 2016 following the release of his tell-all book, “Crisis of Character.”
Media Matters and David Brock had referred to Byrne at the time as a “smear merchant,” and he responded during an interview with Breitbart’s Alex Marlow, “Everything in the book is true. I want to set the record straight. And since I can’t get on mainstream media to set the record straight, I’m going to have to do it in court.”
