“The Clinton days are over.”
During the election cycle, the Clinton Foundation and its funding were a significant issue:
- Did Chelsea Use Clinton Foundation Funds to Pay For Her Wedding?
- Clinton Foundation Confirms (Unreported) $1 Million Donation from Qatar
- Clinton Foundation Received Millions From Merkel Government
After the election, reports were that the donations and the speaking fees were drying up. Perhaps that is why The New York Posts now notes that former President Bill Clinton is offering to match contributions to the foundation in an email plea?
Clinton Foundation chairman Bruce Lindsey, a longtime Clinton crony, announced the family’s latest move in an email Wednesday to supporters.
“As we prepare for a new year, President Clinton and Chelsea remain dedicated to our work providing everyone a chance to succeed,” Lindsey wrote.
The email message asked for donations, claiming Bill Clinton would personally triple “every gift” up to $200,000.
“Your contribution before the end of the year is so important that President Clinton is personally TRIPLING every gift to the Foundation, up to $200,000,” Lindsey said.
The New York Post article indicated that no mention of failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was made in the fundraising request.
Think about it: The power and influence of the Clinton Machine is so reduced, Bill Clinton must use his own money. And the disappointment over Hillary is great, she isn’t part of the new effort.
The instructions ordered agents to “go forward” with their ongoing inquiry into the Clinton Foundation which is focusing on issues of corruption and money laundering, according to the source.
“There were no instructions to shut it down, to discontinue or to stand down on the investigation, but to continue its work,” the former official told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview.
It will be interesting to see where this investigation might go under Attorney General Jeff Sessions in 2017.
What about Hillary Clinton? I will let progressive pundit Van Jones answer that question:
The Clinton family’s grip on the Democratic Party has come to an end and it’s time for a new generation of leadership to lead the party, CNN political commentator Van Jones said.
“You have to understand, I think that the Clinton days are over,” Jones told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview that aired Sunday on “State of the Union.”
The fundraising email should be an intriguing test to see if Bill’s magic remains.DONATE
