Clinton Foundation Donation Numbers SUNK LIKE A STONE After Hillary’s Loss…
Everything has its peaks and valleys and its usefulness, Hillary Clinton is not excluded from this.
Donations to the Clinton Foundation, the so called charity run by seemingly ever member of the Clinton family and possibly even the grandchildren have plunged by a staggering sixty percent in the year and chance since Hillary’s election loss in 2016.
This news is bringing to light once again the questions of what exactly the Clintons were doing with that money.
It has been widely speculated for years that a pay to play scandal was intertwined with the daily business of the Clinton Foundation.
This latest revelation about the dropff in donations certainly will not do anything to quash those suspicions.
Back in January, The Hill reported that the FBI had opened an investigation into the foundation based on such allegations. The heart of the investigation was focused on the time period when former first lady Hillary Clinton was the secretary of state.
Even commentators in liberal publications knew that development looked bad. As Tufts University political science professor Jeffrey Berry wrote in the left-leaning Pacific Standard, his own research had shown most foundations to be scandal free, but not the Clinton Foundation, “which has repeatedly stirred controversy over its unusual fundraising practices.”
As Berry pointed out, the foundation had more than 200,000 donors since beginning in 1997, but the real money was coming from a relatively small pool.
“Despite its vast donor base … much of its funding comes from major donors, including other foundations, wealthy individuals, and, of course, foreign governments,” Berry wrote.
“The foundation’s own records show that it has received seven gifts of more than $25 million and another 19 worth $10 to $25 million.”
This brings us to the latest financial information about the foundation.
In federal tax filings obtained by the New York Post, it is clear that the Clinton Foundation has suddenly seen a massive nosedive in contributions.
Representatives for the Clinton Foundation have consistently denied any wrongdoing. A spokesman also has claimed to the New York Post that the dropoff in funding is due to restructuring within the organization, especially the closure of an arm of the foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative.
