Clinton Global Initiative closing main Office

By TwoScoopsMcGee   Jan 15, 6:03pm   4 links   967 views   14 comments   watch (1)   quote      



The Clinton Foundation’s long list of wealthy donors and foreign government contributors during the 2016 elections provoked critics to allege conflicts of interests. Clinton partisans defended the organization’s charitable work, and dismissed claims that it served as a means for the Clintons to sell off access, market themselves on the paid speech circuit, and elevate their brand as Hillary Clinton campaigned for the presidency.

But as soon as Clinton lost the election, many of the criticisms directed toward the Clinton Foundation were reaffirmed. Foreign governments began pulling out of annual donations, signaling the organization’s clout was predicated on donor access to the Clintons, rather than its philanthropic work. In November, the Australian government confirmed it “has not renewed any of its partnerships with the scandal-plagued Clinton Foundation, effectively ending 10 years of taxpayer-funded contributions worth more than $88 million.” The government of Norway also drastically reduced their annual donations, which reached $20 million a year in 2015.

On January 12, the Clinton Foundation received more bad news: a WARN notice was filed with the New York Department of Labor. The main office of the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City would be closing, laying off 22 employees.

The truth eventually emerges.

Here's what's in store:

IHLlary is arrested after attempting to shoot Billfuck, missing and accidentally blowing the back of the head off of a 13 year old girl while she was servicing the twisted monster and former president. IHLlary will have been, typically, shitfaced and wandering around the house brandishing her gun without her glasses and would be thinking she was going to shoot Bill in the gonads.

They need an independent prosecutor for this. However I don't think it will happen-I am guessing 99% of all congress critters are doing something similar in a smaller scale.

Is it that ? OR is it that the kind of propaganda storm against the Clinton's is fairly effective in altering peoples opinions.

The all time most negative campaign in history tarnished the Clinton's image ? I'm shocked.

The campaign really worked its self.

The Liberals handed Trump a campaign so great. That all he had to do is act like a Ten year old calling them out on it.

And HE STILL WON!!!

Had Trump been Hillary Clinton, and he believed none of that was True. Trump would have the world's largest legal team today sending a bunch of people to the poorhouse.

Now either tell Hillary to put up or Shut up.

The evidence is there, your partisan hatred of White American Conservatives, does not pardon Hillary's devious crimes against this country.

Trump didn't defame her, the truth simply came out.

Right. Your perception of the degree of wrongs committed by Hillary don't have a lot to do with your partisan hatred ?

Republicans have hated Hillary since 1992. Rush Limbaugh and the right wing media machine have been bad mouthing her every chance they get ever since then. It takes an amazing amount of intellectual dishonesty to deny the magnitude of the industry that has been built around bashing Hillary. But it's true, the degree to which people disliked her, and didn't want to listen to her, and possibly also not being ready for a woman President (or not her as the first) all played a part in making Trump's election possible.

I'm not saying that none of the criticism is justified. But it was blown out of proportion in many ways (including the Russia fake news factor) that I'm sure will be studied for a long time.

Van jones was yapping with whoopi goldberg and co. this morning on view talking about michigan recount. The dishonest twat left out the part that there were more registered ballots than actual voters when claiming that Trump " only won by 10K votes"
