Report: DOJ may use mafia-inspired RICO charges against protesters who stormed US Capitol

The U.S. Department of Justice may be using a law intended for the mafia to charge rioters involved in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol, according to a new report on Wednesday.

The DOJ may use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) which combats organized crimes with large penalties, such as prison time up to 20 years, Reuters reported, citing two law enforcement sources – one currently working in the administration and one recently separated from the federal government.

The sources said the decision to use RICO is currently under consideration in the DOJ.

 No STORMING OF CAPITOL.  Doors were opened by congress people and Capitol Police.  ONLY ANTIFA/BLM...did any damage.

PAID PROTESTERS....paid $35.00 dollars an hour.  Told to wear TRUMP GEAR. 

ANTIFA/BLM...were inside, about half hour,  before POTUS TRUMP...EVEN  FINISHED HIS SPEECH.  Stop listening to MAIN STREAM MEDIA.  No Trump patriot did any damage.

Wish I could find a statistic of how many DOJ hours have been spent on this, versus that on the hundreds and hundreds of hours of rioting by BLM and Antifa.
I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

So what kind of evidence have they prepared in advance to hide the fact that these intruders were (b)LM and Aunty Fa?
The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.

Apparently, these DOJ people never watched Law & Order. Jack McCoy trotted out RICO charges at the drop of a hat. Didn't even need a reason. :laugh:

Bet that is going to piss off the Mob.  The Mob prefers special treatment.
