Clinton Foundation Struggling Financially With No More Influence to Sell

Clinton Foundation Struggling Financially With No More Influence to Sell

“reported a loss of more than $16 million in 2018, according to newly released tax records”

Since the 2016 election and Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat, the Clinton Foundation has struggled to raise money. As a result, the organization is losing millions of dollars to survive.

In the months leading up to the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton supporters would scoff when critics suggested the non-profit was nothing more than a family slush fund the Clintons used to sell influence. Now that the Clintons don’t control any high office and have no real access to sell, haven’t the critics been vindicated?

Andrew Stiles writes at the Washington Free Beacon:

Clinton Foundation Reports $16.8 Million Loss in 2018

The Clinton Foundation reported a loss of more than $16 million in 2018, according to newly released tax records, marking the second consecutive year of losses since Hillary Clinton’s humiliating defeat to President Donald J. Trump in 2016.

The foundation reported total revenue of just $30.7 million, including $24.2 million worth of grants and contributions, a record low for the alleged “charity.” That figure was well short of the foundation’s total expenses for the year—$47.5 million— resulting in a net loss of $16.8 million.

The previous year, the Clinton Foundation reported a net loss of $16.1 million. In total, the organization has lost a staggering $32.9 million since Hillary Clinton’s lifelong quest for the presidency crumbled to dust in November 2016.

Shockingly, the foundation’s revenues have plummeted compared to the massive figures reported during Hillary’s tenure as secretary of state (2009 to 2013), and during her campaign as the Democratic Party’s essentially unchallenged presidential nominee in 2016.

The sudden crash is a real mystery, isn’t it? What happened to all the $500,000 speaking gigs?

Evie Fordham of FOX Business has a response from a foundation spokesman:

Clinton Foundation bleeding cash

Foundation director Bruce Lindsey saw his reportable compensation stay about the same in 2018 as it was the year prior, when he was paid just over $362,000.

Clinton Foundation spokesman Brian Cookstra pushed back against media reports implying that the foundation is struggling.

“These reports are not accurate. Our entire 990 shows our work was fully funded by donations, grants, savings from prior years, and interest from our endowment,” Cookstra told FOX Business. “In the last year, the Clinton Foundation’s programs have grown to help more people, and we are committed to operating programs that are effective, efficient, and sustainable.”

It’s surprising that the Clinton Foundation is sputtering, now that Hillary has so much free time on her hands. She seems to prefer to use her energy going on late-night shows and hanging out on Twitter:

Does anyone believe the Clinton Foundation would be struggling if Hillary had won?


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


… and it’s ALL TRUMP’S FAULT!!! Bless him!!!

    Trump with Stephen Miller’s help is “Building an America as good as its ideals”, starting with rule of law.

      President Trump Disrupted DC’s Ability to Monetize Government…

      “…..looking at the circular laundry operation where DC politicians send taxpayer funds overseas and then use networks, friends and families to capture those same funds for their own personal financial benefit; while overlaying how much Hillary Clinton corruption the U.S. Justice Department, State Department and intelligence community hid in the 2016 election; the big picture emerges.

      When politicians in Mexico or Afghanistan accept bribes we call it corruption, but when DC politicians participate in the exact same process we call it “lobbying”. It is no wonder the Clinton Foundation starts losing money as soon as the political influence over policy no longer exists. It is also no surprise why those same donors hate President Trump.

      In the larger picture it is clear the Obama administration weaponized institutions of government to target their political opposition. It is also increasingly clear a Hillary Clinton administration would have further monetized the U.S. government.

      President Obama’s team used the IRS, DOJ, CIA, FBI and State Dept. to target their opposition. The intelligence apparatus was weaponized; one small example that scratches the surface is the FBI/NSA FISA(702) database exploitation. Black files on DC politicians, private sector groups and individuals facilitating leverage, and we are still seeing the ramifications.


      Big multinational interests, Big Pharma, Big Ag, Big Global Banking interests, etc, were exclusively supporting both President Obama and candidate Clinton. The domestic politics of the U.S. were/are tools toward an end; and, so long as the person occupying the oval office did not interfere with multinational objectives, they too would benefit financially.

      It is also obvious the opposition to President Trump, those who are really coordinating and manipulating the grassroots sheeple, are funded by these same multinational interests….

Geez, they only have 250,000,000

Hitmen are expensive.

Somebody’s going to buy Epstein’s little black book. Seems like a fit for the Clintons.

    You really have a good point. After the death the FBI was all over his island house and his other houses. That means some people have seen the books, videos and letters that were hanging around. And that agent is having a Blagojevich moment and, yes it is golden.

It’s a cruel world out there. Hildebeast has to buy Chardonnay in a box. Trying real hard to elect the ugly progeny, without any talent will be difficult.

Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of grifters.

Headline you’ll never see: Trump Election Hits Organized Crime Family

“Clinton Foundation spokesman Brian Cookstra pushed back”

I’m pretty sure it’s spelled “Crookstra.”

The Dims are frantically casting about, looking for evidence of quid pro quo.

They should look in their own back yard; this precipitous decline in Clintoon Foundation earnings is all the proof you need of an expectation of quid pro quo on the part of their donors.

This is far and away the most disgusting example of graft by an elected government official ever in the history of our country. That a senior cabinet official would take over a billion dollars into a “charitable foundation”, much of it from countries and companies over which her department had direct influence, and then live like royalty off the money is disgusting. These people make me want to puke.

They should be rotting in jail given their graft and her seditious behavior these past few years.

    Few? Did you say “few” years?

      The blatant, outright sedition on the part of Cankles has only been going on since she got schlonged by Trump. The graft and other various felonies? Yeah, they’ve been going on for decades.

The foundation reported total revenue of just $30.7 million, including $24.2 million worth of grants and contributions

So, not including “grants and contributions”, revenue was $6.5 million.

Why was it even that much? Who is expecting to get $6.5 million worth of favors from these has-beens? For that matter, why is anyone shoveling “grant” money at this crime syndicate?

‘Expenses’ are where scams like this thrive. Have a second cousin with feckless taste? He becomes ‘Chief Investment Manager’ and clocks in a quarter-mil a year putting all the cash assets into a no-load fund. Want a trip to Tahiti? Find a like-minded scam and organize a mutual visit for ‘Purposes of discussion about future endeavors’ while sipping mixed drinks and watching the beach life. Got a crony with a failed building? Have them donate it as a tax write-off at over market value. The list is endless, and you still get fuzzy-minded idiots sending the scam cash money like it’s really for useful charitable purposes.

I guess her mentor Tony Soprano didn’t teach her how to diversify. Even first year business students know that influence and bribery are in the same economy driven sector.

The Clintons should follow the advice of Antifa and the other left-wing terrorist groups to conservative events:

could get tough for slick willie and the crone when the big boys(and not just here in the US)call in all those markers that are now worthless

same for the kenyan

Pant suits are expensive, as are underaged little girls

Feel good story of the day.

I think it’s proof that the Obama economy was fantastic, but the Trump economy is disastrous.
