BOOM: Major Clinton Donor Faces ‘Criminal Profiteering’ Charges

Hansjorg Wyss, a prominent Clinton foundation donor and wealthy bankroller of liberal activist groups, will face charges of running a “criminal profiteering enterprise” through the illegal use of a drug and in violation of federal patient safety rules that resulted in the death of a 67-year old woman, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

Washington State Superior Court Judge Dean Lum agreed Oct. 30 that Wyss, a Swiss billionaire who has given more than $5 million to the Clinton Foundation, can stand trial under the state’s racketeering laws for leading a criminal enterprise that caused the death of Reba Golden. She died during an illegal drug test conducted by Wyss’s company in 2007.

The Washington suit charges Wyss, the former CEO of a Pennsylvania-based medical device company called Synthes and his co-defendants with murder in the second degree as a class A felony, second degree assault and criminal profiteering under the Washington Criminal Profiteering Act.

Wyss faces a statutory civil penalty of $250,000 for each violation, amounting to $9.2 million for “personal injury to and death of Mrs. Golden. He is charged in 37 violations.

Isn’t it strange how the Clintons know a lot of shady, foreign people with tons of cash?
