The Clinton foundation has crumbled, with donations crashing, strong evidence that the donors were not giving to support charitable causes, but instead, were buying influence.

The story the Clintons told was their foundation was doing charitable work, than the hundreds of millions in donations from plutocrats and governments were to help the world. Funny thing. Now that Hillary has disappeared from the world scene and is no longer a power broker the donations are drying up.

In an article,

The Clinton Foundation Shuts Down Clinton Global Initiative,the Observer reports that the Clinton Foundation was closing down its Global initiative, terminating 22 employees.
"The Clinton Foundation's long list of wealthy donors and foreign government contributors during the 2016 elections provoked critics to allege conflicts of interests. Clinton partisans defended the organization's charitable work, and dismissed claims that it served as a means for the Clintons to sell off access, market themselves on the paid speech circuit, and elevate their brand as Hillary Clinton campaigned for the presidency.
But as soon as Clinton lost the election, many of the criticisms directed toward the Clinton Foundation were reaffirmed. Foreign governments began pulling out of annual donations, signaling the organization's clout was predicated on donor access to the Clintons, rather than its philanthropic work. In November, the Australian government confirmed it "has not renewed any of its partnerships with the scandal-plagued Clinton Foundation, effectively ending 10 years of taxpayer-funded contributions worth more than $88 million." The government of Norway also drastically reduced their annual donations, which reached $20 million a year in 2015."

As Hillary's critics long believed, the Clinton Global Initiative was not what it seemed. The Observer article makes it pretty clear that the Clintons were dirty, misleading and deceiving their supporters, reporting,

WikiLeaks revealed several criticisms of the Clinton Foundation were true, as pay-to-play schemes and the foundation's corrupt management were exposed. On October 26, The Washington Post reported a memo detailed how the Clinton Foundation was used to boost Bill Clinton's income.

"The memo, made public Wednesday by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, lays out the aggressive strategy behind lining up the consulting contracts and paid speaking engagements for Bill Clinton that added tens of millions of dollars to the family's fortune, including during the years that Hillary Clinton led the State Department," reported The Washington Post. "It describes how Band helped run what he called "Bill Clinton Inc.," obtaining "in-kind services for the President and his family--for personal travel, hospitality, vacation and the like."

The Clinton Foundation's downward trajectory ever since since Hillary Clinton's election loss provides further testimony to claims that the organization was built on greed and the lust for power and wealth--not charity.

This is another nail in the coffin of the false narrative that the Clintons were good people doing good work. The truth is the Clintons, working with the neoliberal leaders of the DNC-- who are still, for the most part, leaders of the Democratic Party.

Mediate, which also has an article on the Clinton Global Initiative shutdown, finishes its article with the admonition,

"It is worth noting that the Observer is owned by Jared Kushner, who is both son-in-law and upcoming senior adviser to President-Elect Donald Trump.

That suggests the Observer's analysis should be considered to be coming from a potentially anti-Clinton source on the right. Even so, the Foundation filed the shut down with the New York Department of Labor, as they are required to do. So there is fact involved here.
