The Clinton Foundation is struggling to haul in as much cash ever since Hillary’s epic presidential loss in 2016.
The Daily Wire reports:
According to the group’s most recent financial report, contributions fell from $29.6 million in 2019 to $16.3 million in 2020 — a 45% decline amid COVID-19 and the lockdown-induced recession. In 2016, when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ran for President, the group raised $62.9 million, indicating an overall 74% donation decline in a four-year period.
The Clinton Foundation works with “strategic partners to develop and implement programs that create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement and service.” Its programs relate to increasing crop yields, battling climate change, and providing relief after natural disasters.
The organization, however, has often been accused of political motives and pay-to-play schemes. Last year, President Trump’s Department of Justice investigated how the FBI dealt with claims of such corruption at the Clinton Foundation.
“There was a clear double standard by the Department of Justice and FBI when it came to the Trump and Clinton campaigns in 2016,” commented Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) at the time. “[The] Bureau, as it is supposed to do, required that Hillary Clinton be defensively briefed about the matter so she could engage in corrective action. When it came to the Trump campaign, there were four counterintelligence investigations opened against Trump campaign associates. Not one time was President Trump defensively briefed about the FBI’s concerns.”
The Clinton Foundation previously dismissed the investigation. More recently, Clinton-connected lawyer Michael Sussmann was indicted for allegedly lying to the FBI.
