Unable to peddle influence, Hillary and Bill Clinton are shuttering their Clinton Global Initiative effective April 15. This means 22 people will lose their jobs.
Fortunately, the election of President Trump means plants are hiring.
Unfortunately, the election of President Trump also means the draining of the swamp in Washington.
That means tough times for lobbyists, political flunkies, and hangers on -- particularly those of the Democratic Party persuasion.
With 4,000 or so appointees of President Obama drawing their final paychecks on Friday, what little market remains will be flooded with unskilled but credentialed job applicants.
Having actually worked in the White House instead of the staff of the biggest Democratic Party loser since Mike Dukakis gives the Obamaniacs a leg up.
From Zero Hedge:
In a "mass layoff" event reported late last week by the Department of Labor, the Clinton Foundation announced it would lay off some 22 employees at the Clinton Global Initiative, which attained notoriety during the John Podesta leaks, when the various details of the fallout between between CGI head Doug Band and Chelsea Clinton were revealed; it also emerged that long-time Bill Clinton friend Band was soliciting donations for Clinton through his PR firm, Teneo in an sordid example of "pay for play" which most of the mainstream media refused to cover, especially after Band emailed Podesta "If this story gets out, we are screwed."
Filed as mandated by the Department of Labor's Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, or WARN notice, on January 12, the Clinton Foundation's Veronika Shiroka advised the DOL that as part of a "Plant Layoff" it would layoff 22 workers on April 15, with reason for the dislocation stated as "Discontinuation of the Clinton Global Initiative." The layoffs are part of the Clinton plan put in motion ahead of the presidential election, to offset a storm of criticism regarding pay-to-play allegations during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.The shutting down of the foundation is prima facie proof that this was a sham charity used to launder foreign bribes. Given how easily a preponderance of evidence can be found, the U.S. attorney in New York City -- where this foundation operated -- should be able to win a large judgment against the Clintons under the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization act.
Civil action would hit them in the wallet without raising questions about victor's justice -- especially if an Obama appointee litigates the case.
Which is why I am hoping Barack Obama pardons the bitch. That will be his legacy.
And she will still be punished.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel.
