It looks like the Clintons are running for cover.
After Donald J. Trump devastated the once formidable Clinton political machine in November – the Clinton Global Initiative, the centerpiece initiative of the Clinton Foundation, the former first couple’s political and financial power structure – is being shut down.
According to a notice filed with the New York Department of Labor, the Clinton Foundation will lay off 22 members of the Clinton Global Initiative.
The initiative apparently became unsustainable after Hillary Clinton’s defeat, as foreign governments began reducing or even withdrawing their donations. The Australian government, for example, ended a decade of funding the organization, and the government of Norway reduced its contribution by more than $15 million.
The abandonment of CGI soon after the Clintons lost political power will only further accusations the foundation was the hub of a “pay-to-play” network of influence peddling that existed to personally enrich Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton.
Indeed, one of the reporters who has been investigating the Clintons for years and whose articles and book helped expose corruption in the Clinton Foundation said the Clintons are “running scared.”
