Clinton Global Initiative to layoffs, shutting down donations in the midst of dwindling


The Clintons are going to zoom ahead with the plans, your controversial Foundation’s network of branches, a decision, as the powerful family of political influence is waning and their once long donor list is shrinking.

In a decision announced last week, 22 employees were dismissed by the Clinton Global Initiative – known for its annual glitzy collection of high-Power leaders and celebrities. The layoffs are tied to a decision to shutter the CGI, which was originally announced in an Aug. 22 letter from former President Bill Clinton.

At the time, the Clintons were under pressure to explain how the hand would have any potential conflicts of interest with their eponymous Foundation to win if the Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, the White house.

Bill Clinton wrote in his letter to the times: “Nine years ago, in my book,” Give, ” I wrote, ‘I want to continue to build this meet for at least a decade, with the aim of creating a global network of citizens and activists that reach beyond the boundaries of our interdependent world, to real communities of shared opportunities, shared responsibility, and a real sense of belonging.’ … This is exactly what is done in CGI, its members and its dedicated staff.”

Clinton lost the 2016 election, Donald Trump — but the family, however, with its CGI-plans, and of those, the “dedicated employees” getting the axe.

The 22 employees are part of a wave of layoffs.

E-MAIL DETAILS, SUCH AS TOP AIDES CONTRIBUTED TO THE FACT THAT EX-PRESIDENT RICH reported on Oct. 4 a WARN, notice, notification, 74 employees would be laid off. A further notice was issued on Jan. 12 indication 22 additional staff would go. WARN the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, which requires that the employer Deposit 60 days in advance of.

Under the form of the “reason for displacement” section, an employee discontinu station (sic) of the Clinton Global Initative (sic) wrote: “.”

The “date of dismissal” is for April 15.

It is how many employees is unclear, left to the CGI, after the last round of layoffs, or when employees are shifted to other Clinton projects. A spokesman for the Clinton Foundation, declined to comment on the record for this story.

CGI, which began in 2005, is a direct action charity, such as the Clinton Foundation, but brings together the power players to act to address the “major global challenges” due to their own commitments.


During Hillary Clinton’s presidential prospects have been knocked down, mere months after Bill Clinton from the pen of his August letter, other factors may have contributed to CGI’s end, in spite of the disappearance of the threat of conflict-of-interest issues.

During the 2011 CGI meeting boasted a list of 46 sponsors, the number was cut in half, the last September summit, Politico reported. And since Clinton is the presidential election loss in November, cut back other donors, or stopped at the cross-Clinton-Foundation. After 10 years and more than $88 million in donations, the Australian government decided against the renewal of their partnership with the Foundation reported. Norway, the indication of $20 million in the year 2015 was reduced to $ 4.2 million in the year 2016.

The last CGI event came just a few days before the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks published a trove of E-Mails from the account of Hillary Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta. Some of the E-Mails, from as far back as 2008, revealed internal tensions and possible irregularities in the Clinton and CGI-Insider.

“I wrote under a conflict of interest, as a member of the Board of “cgi”,” top-wrote to Clinton confidant Doug Band in Nov. 17 E-Mail to Podesta, in which he also to Clinton by his initials, WJC. “…Strange, wjc does not have such a document to sign, even though he paid for personally by 3 cgi-sponsors, get a lot of expensive gifts from them, some of which are at home, etc.”

He added: “I could 500 other examples of things like this.”


Chelsea Clinton was appointed to the CGI-management Board show at the end of 2011, and of the Podesta, E-Mails, there is no love lost between the Clinton’s daughter and Band, with notes of both the Podesta private wound of the other.

The Band, which began as Clinton’s “body man” in the White house years, was one of the masterminds behind the CGI, and played a key role in securing donations for the Clinton Foundation. He continued to solicit customers for the Clintons, even after the founding of his own firm, Teneo, in June 2011, according to a memo he wrote to his role in the Clinton world. Two of the most important customers, backed up by the Band – The Coca-Cola Company and Barclays Capital does not sponsor CGI in 2016, Politico reported, in spite of years of reliable donation for the event.
