Just two weeks ago, Hillary went from being one of the most powerful people in the world to losing the presidency and it keeps getting worse for the former Secretary of State.
The Clinton Foundation is not raising money like it once had, and it could get a lot worse.
In 2014, the year before Hillary announced her run for the White House, the Clinton Foundation raised $172 million and she earned $3.6 million making speeches.
In 2015, she announced her run and the Clinton Foundation lost 37% in donations by only raising $108 million and getting paid $357,500 for speeches.
Currently we are in 2016 and the Clinton Foundation came under fire from the Trump Campaign and there is a criminal investigation going on in the FBI right now about Hillary’s ties to the foundation and the State Department.
The Clinton Foundation was the subject of many WikiLeaks emails that had a tremendous negative affect on Hillary’s public perception. WikiLeaks didn’t help Bill or Chelsea too much either. It can’t be good for the Clinton brand.
We are just learning the numbers for 2015, and it will be a while until we really know how bad the Clinton Foundation dropped this year.
With so much airtime and column inches dedicated to the criminal activity of the Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s subsequent loss, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if the Clinton Foundation changed its strategy and downsizes.
The prevailing thought inside the Democratic Party is that Obama is going to pardon Hillary on his way out of office.
Obama might be able to keep Hillary out of prison, but if that happens, the Clinton Foundation will lose a lot of the credibly, power and any prestige it still has left.
The only hope for the future of the Clinton Foundation is to begin to push Chelsea into the spotlight and towards positions of power.
Hillary and the Clinton’s have their future up in the air right now. They never planned for this. They thought they would be filling the new Hillary administration with Clinton Foundation donors right now. They are just trying to figure out what to do next and their only option to save their empire may be Chelsea.
Do you think the Clinton Foundation will continue to function five years from now? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
