Whoa! Clinton Global Initiative To Lay Off ENTIRE Staff?

Clinton Global Initiative to be “discontinued,” according to notice to NY DOL.


[Updated.] Following a bitter and controversy-filled 2016, the staff at the Clinton Global Initiative received even worse news earlier this week when CGI announced that it would be laying off its nearly two-dozen staffers.

Founded in 2005, CGI “had become the networking event of choice for corporations, nonprofits, nongovernmental organizations and wealthy philanthropists,” according to the Washington Post.

According to a WARN notice filed by CGI Director of Employee Relations Veronika Shiroka with the New York Department of Labor, CGI plans to lay off its 22 employees on April 15, 2017.

The reason cited for the layoff is “Discontinuation of the Clinton Global Initiative.”


As issues surrounding the Clinton Foundation/CGI and potential conflicts of interest plagued Hillary Clinton throughout her campaign—along with an ongoing FBI investigation—the Clinton Foundation has seemingly seen its donations drop substantially following Hillary Clinton’s loss in November, causing Bill Clinton personally pledge to match donors’ contributions.

In September, the Washington Post reported that the Clinton Foundation would be undergoing a major restructuring—which included the discontinuation of CGI—regardless whether Hillary Clinton won the presidency.

  3. Imagine that – as stated here the ongoinf investigation onto the foundation and all the other scandals including Hillary’s failed bid for the WH has dried up the potential players who thought they’d get a free ride under her administration.

    Corruption begets corruption, and as Lord Acton so clearly stated: “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men (or in this case a woman) are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority; still more when you super add the tendency of the certainty of corruption by authority.” The Clintons have a history of using their “influence” to get what they want any way they can without reservation of concern for the laws or the nation.

    So, good riddance to them both and anything associated with them – their own level of corruption was their undoing – and it could not have happened to two more deserving P’sOS!
