While once residing in the White House, the future hasn’t been that bright for either former President Bill Clinton or Hillary Clinton. Not only did Bill disgrace the Oval Office by having an affair, but in 2016, Hillary, trying to become the first female President, found herself stunned when America sided with Donald Trump. And that comes after numerous other scandals and accusations like Hillary’s emails. But while it appeared to be the end for the Clintons, as both seemed to disappear from the spotlight, they are back in full force now with the return of the Clinton Global Initiative after the Clinton Foundation was accused of being operated like the global fund in Geneva, Switzerland by dealing in pharmaceuticals.
Excited about the upcoming week, Bill Clinton tweeted, “Very excited for the return of Clinton Global Initiative next week — now is the time for us to work together and get good things done for people and the planet.” The Clinton Foundation even wrote, “Today, we celebrate the @ClintonGlobal commitments that have transformed communities and countries since 2005. Tomorrow, we re-convene our community at #CGI2022 to make the commitments that will change the future for millions more.”
But as mentioned above, the Clinton Foundation received a great deal of interest back in 2018 when the House Oversight Subcommittee on Government Operations investigated the foundation on Capitol Hill. One of JFM’s Associates, John Moynihan, admitted that a staggering 60% of donations to the foundation were supposedly used on “administration fees.” Looking at other foundations operating in the same space, they spend around 15%. The whistleblower, Lawrence Doyle, added, “The investigation clearly demonstrates that the [Clinton] Foundation was not a charitable organization per se, but in pointed fact was a closely held family partnership.”
Lawrence Doyle insisted, “As such, it was governed in a fashion in which is sought in large measure to advance the personal interests of its principles as detailed within the financial analysis…and further confirmed within the supporting documentation and evidence.”
When asked by Congressman Jim Jordan if the Clinton Foundation was participating with foreign governments, Doyle explained, “They were brokering money, and they were brokering pharmaceuticals — they were an agent of money through these donors, they would take a vig (fee), broker the money and then they negotiated these relationships with the pharmaceutical companies — by the same token they were brokering the pharmaceuticals and again taking the vig (fee).”
Users online voiced their opinions, claiming, “Translation: ‘The DNC has told us that they’re not going to let Hillary run again, and they’re not at all interested in running Chelsea, so it’s time for us to break out the old grift machine again!! We have to make sure that when we’re gone, Chelsea and the grandkids don’t ever have to work in their lives, after all — they’re above that!!'”
