The latest news about the Clinton Foundation confirms what many of us have known for quite some time – it was nothing more than a front organization to peddle government influence.
For years, the Clinton Foundation has raked in hundreds of millions of dollars, the vast majority of which all came from foreign governments, yet Bill, Hillary, and their supporters have tried to convince us that it was a “charitable” organization with philanthropic intent. However, if that was truly the case, then why is it the “charity’s” “donations” have all but dried up entirely?
According to a new report from the New York Post, the Clinton Foundation is struggling to get people to donate to it ever since Hillary suffered an embarrassing election defeat. In fact, for the second year in a row, the organization has seen a massive drop in revenues, with this year’s falling a full 42 percent from the year prior.
Philanthropy, you say?
From the Post:
Donations to the Clinton Foundation took a precipitous dive for a second year in a row as Justice Department officials mulled whether they would appoint a special prosecutor to probe the non-profit’s “alleged unlawful dealings.”
Contributions to the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation fell by 42 percent, from $108 million to $63 million in 2016 — the year that Hillary Clinton lost her bid for president — according to the group’s latest federal tax filings which were released last week.
Donations had already plummeted 37 percent in 2015, when the non-profit was in disarray amid pay-to-play allegations and following the resignation of one of its key executives.
Just $63 million for 2016? That’s odd, considering that in one year alone – 2010 – the Clinton Foundation took in $145 million from a single group of donors – Russian billionaires trying to buy 20 percent of America’s strategic uranium reserves.
Even odder is the fact that while Hillary was serving in some form of public capacity, “donations” to the “charity” often far exceeded hundreds of millions annually. In fact, in 2013, the year after she left the office of Secretary of State, the organization took in $252 million.
So what happened to the group’s donors?
Well, considering the Justice Department is about to open an investigation into the Uranium One deal, that Wikileaks exposed pay-to-play schemes between Hillary and other countries, and that Hillary was known for selling her influence in the American government, it’s safe to say that with her defeat, the foundation’s “donors” no longer saw it worth their investment to throw money at Hillary, knowing she doesn’t wield the power she once did.
If we had an honest media, they would actually ask her why it is her once-extremely influential “charity” can’t seem to muster up enough money to even cover its bills any longer.
