Something very curious is going on at the Clinton Foundation.
The once POPULAR and busy foundation has become a mere shadow of its former self.
Back when Hillary and Bill were top names in presidential politics, the duo was raking in the cash.
They had money to burn…
But since they’ve become less relevant and have no actual power to “sell” anything, the foundation has dried up.
Western Journal reported that the organization seems to have lost much of its fundraising power since Hillary Clinton gracelessly exited presidential politics in 2016 after her surprise loss to Donald Trump in that year’s tumultuous election.
While the Clintons remain power players on the political stage, the 2016 defeat almost certainly sealed Hillary off from any hopes of returning to the presidential field. (Bill, of course, is out of the presidential stakes thanks to the 22nd Amendment limiting presidents to two terms.)
And while the foundation blames 2020’s notable lag in donations on the pandemic, it appears that the downward trend began immediately after Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations were crushed.
According to tax documents reviewed by Axios, the Clinton Foundation’s donations dropped by almost 75 percent in 2020 as compared to 2016, when fundraising was at its peak and Clinton was running for the White House.
So not only does philanthropic interest in the organization appear to have plummeted once Hillary lost her big chance, but it had previously grown to its highest point when she appeared to have a good shot at being elected president.
In 2020, the Clinton Foundation brought in just $16 million, down from $29.6 million in 2019.
In 2016, when the Clinton name was on the ballot for the office of the presidency, the organization brought in $62.9 million.
Well, I think those figures tell us all we need to know about what was really going on at the Clinton Foundation, wouldn’t you agree?
