The Clinton Global Initiative Closes Up Shop

A great editorial from the Washington Examiner:

The Clinton Foundation has confirmed that it always was what we and many others said it was.

Its latest tax filing declared that the Clinton Global Initiative is closing its offices and sacking 22 staff. This comes amid reports that donations dried up after Hillary Clinton lost the election November 8.

It was always obvious that the Clinton Foundation was not simply a charity. As Hillary’s opponents but also neutral observers discerned, Hillary was a coin-operated policymaker and the Clinton Foundation and CGI were toll collectors for access to her State Department and a future Clinton administration.

The CGI was innovative and quite unlike a normal charity that takes donations and uses them to dole out grants or do good works. Instead, the theory was that it would be the locus of meetings and connections among big business organizatiions that wanted, for example, to alleviate drought in Africa or help educate women in Asia.

There was a big gap, however, between theory and practice. Most of CGI’s undertakings were not completed, according to the organization’s own report.

CGI wasn’t really delivering financial education to Haitian youth, to take another example, but selling access to the Clintons and siphoning money from the coffers of the corporations meeting at the CGI, enriching the Clintons and their friends.

Obama: “We Have to Compete Everywhere. We have to Show Up Everywhere “

Seems like a bit of a dig at Hillary. President Obama today emphasized the importance of retail politicking, something Hillary Clinton has never shined at. Her schedule was light on campaign appearances and long on attending fundraisers and making phone calls for money. She was, frankly, outhustled by Donald Trump, and comparatively, outhustled by Obama’s… Continue Reading
