In a name that has become synonymous with corruption, the Clinton Foundation is curtailing some of its operations. Those of a liberal bent might bemoan this as a reduction in all the good work the organization alleges to have done, yet in so doing they must overlook details like influence peddling, as well as actually find something that the organization has done to benefit humanity unattached from any private benefits to the Clintons. This is no easy task.
Of course this organization bears the hallmarks of your typical slush fund, although the size of operation and the publicity surrounding it is rather on the large size. The “in your face” nature of this monstrosity is appalling. It almost seems like the Clintons think they have transferred their own imagined invulnerability to prosecution to the the organization bearing their name. One has to wonder if these people think they might ever be called to account for their behavior.
As the Clinton Foundation begins downsizing questions come to mind. What does this mean? What parts are being lopped off? Why are they doing this?
The Clinton Global Initiative is one part of the Clinton Foundation. This is what is being eliminated. In fact, we note that, “The Clinton Foundation announced it’s laying off 22 staffers on the Clinton Global Initiative, keeping with a plan to deal with the negative spotlight put on the organization during former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.”
Note that the reason given is the “negative spotlight.” Well, no one would expect them to take responsibility or admit that the Clinton Global Initiative is anything less than the most pure of institutions.
Apparently this downsizing was planned for some time: “The layoffs were reportedly announced internally in September, ahead of Clinton’s stunning loss to President-elect Donald Trump. Many other employees had already begun looking for or accepting other jobs at that time, as it had become clear the future of the initiative was in doubt.”
There should be no doubt about the future of the Clinton Foundation or any of its parts. It should be closed and those involved, including the Clintons, should also be investigated for corrupt practices.
“It’s unclear how many of the once 200 strong staff might remain at the Clinton Foundation in some other capacity.” Let’s finish that sentence by adding this phrase at the end: “or who might be joining Mr. and Mrs. Clinton in jail for corruption.”
