Since Hillary Clinton lost in 2016, donations for her family’s very questionable charity are significantly down.
All of this is happening as the Justice Department conducts its own investigation into the Clinton Foundation for improper activity.
Even President Donald Trump chimed in, hinting that the Clintons were involved in peddling political influence.
Bad Days Ahead
While Barack Obama was in office, Hillary Clinton had a gold-plated Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free card.
But during his 2016 campaign, Donald Trump promised the American people that Clinton would be brought to justice.
That day may soon be approaching with this current investigation.
The release of tax documents has both the Justice Department and the American people asking some very serious questions about the activity at the Clinton Foundation.
President Trump also has a few questions of his own:
Clinton Foundation donations drop 42% – which shows that they illegally played the power game. They monetized their political influence through the Foundation. “During her tenure the State Department was put in the service of the Clinton Foundation.” Andrew McCarthy

While making his point, President Trump apparently got his figures a little mixed up. (In 2017, the Clinton Foundation only received $26.6 million in donations, which is 42.2 percent of the 2016 total of $62.9 million.)
Either way, with Obama no longer in office and Clinton no longer involved with our government, donors clearly no longer see the need to donate to the “charity.”
And Trump is not alone in his assumption. Several high-ranking Republicans have brought their concerns to light as well.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said the sudden drop in donations “raises grave concerns their operations were not above board.”
While the investigation started back in January, the Justice Department expects to hold hearings on the Clinton Foundation in early December.
If the allegations end up being true, any momentum Democrats had from midterm elections will quickly be lost.
Their so-called “Blue Wave” will quickly be put down, and Republicans will no doubt use this to shred Democrats once the 2020 campaign season kicks in.
We can’t wait.
