For years we have been told that people who contributed to the Clinton Foundation did so only because of the great work they do. But, what happens when you follow the money? You would see this:
This is jaw-dropping. The Clinton Foundation’s 2017 annual report is finally online–WOW. Lots to unpack but digest this nugget:
2015 Total Contributions: $182.5M
2016 Total Contributions: $135.4M
2017 Total Contributions: $22.8M ?
WHEN THEY CAN’T PLAY–NOBODY WANTS TO PAY!

In 2016 the Clinton Foundation took in a whopping 135.4 million dollars and the very next year, they took in a measly 22.8 million. What happened? What happened in 2016? Hillary was soundly defeated and would not become Madame President. The Clinton Foundation thrived on quid pro quo but once the quo was gone, so was the dough.
The Hill reported Wednesday:
“Mr. [John] Huber with the Department of Justice and the FBI has been having an investigation – at least part of his task was to look at the Clinton Foundation and what may or may not have happened as it relates to improper activity with that charitable foundation, so we’ve set a hearing date for December the 5th,” he told Hill.TV during an interview on Wednesday.
Meadow’s said the committee plans to delve into a number of Republicans concerns surrounding the foundation, including whether any tax-exempt proceeds for personal gain and whether the Foundation complied with IRS laws.
President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton previously had this to say about Hillary Clinton selling influence and power through her foundation while she was Secretary of State:
“It is shameful that Hillary Clinton attempted to delete or hide classified information and that Obama appointees James Comey and Loretta Lynch refused to prosecute her. It is clear that the Clintons were using the State Department to run an extensive influence peddling scheme. Americans should be concerned that while untold resources are devoted to the abusive Mueller special counsel investigation of President Trump, this Justice Department seems uninterested in prosecuting the Clintons.”
So, either the Clinton Foundation was used to funnel money to the Clintons in return of favors or they suddenly quit doing “great work.” You get three guesses and the first two don’t count.
