Bill Clinton just can’t stay out of trouble.
He and Hillary are apparently addicted to grasping for power.
And now Bill Clinton just made a stunning announcement that suggested he’ll soon face a major new scandal.
No matter how much Americans want to dream of a Clinton-free political landscape, Bill and Hillary continue to haunt Washington, D.C.
They stayed largely out of the spotlight during Donald Trump’s presidency for an obvious reason – he wasn’t afraid to call them out for their dirty deeds.
But now they’re back and once again aiming to get Hillary into the White House.
Hillary’s been pushing herself through a film project, another book, and making the rounds through the corporate-controlled media.
She even managed to land a key speaking role at the New York Democrat Party convention.
Things have been going so well Bill was even emboldened to make a bold money-grabbing move that could land the family back in the scandal sheets before long.
He recently announced that the dormant Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) is back in business and is “relaunching” to address “our world’s most pressing challenge.”
The program is part of the crooked Clinton Foundation but has been swept under the rug since early 2017.
The Clintons are using the chaos that’s grown out of Joe Biden’s failed diplomacy and disaster of a presidency to relaunch the initiative which is more likely to act as their personal cash cow than actually make a major difference in the world.
But Clinton claims the program is being brought back from the grave to deal with climate change, the Ukraine-Russia conflict, global refugees, and “inequities and vulnerabilities across our global community.”
The Clintons are planning to hold the first official meeting for their next conspiracy in September.
They’ll use drizzling out details about it as an excuse to stay in the media for the next few weeks.
The program was criticized as a “pay for play” operation during Hillary’s 2016 campaign.
It completely ran out of steam in 2017 after Trump beat Hillary.
The CGI follows an unusual process for a charity and has been accused of being a money making vehicle for the political power couple.
“Instead of issuing traditional grants to groups in need, the Clinton Global Initiative’s primary function is to convene powerful figures from the business, political or entertainment worlds and encourage them to pledge contributions for future projects called ‘commitments,’” The Washington Examiner reported. “However, the group’s most recent philanthropic portfolio indicates fewer than half of the thousands of commitments made since 2005 have ever been completed. The charity’s financial structure has also raised eyebrows, since most direct contributions go toward the annual meeting or salaries rather than philanthropy.”
Joe Biden’s public mental decline is giving the Clintons hope Hillary might be able to move them back into the White House.
But her past misdeeds may be her downfall as Special Counsel John Durham investigating the Russian Collusion Hoax filed court documents showing Clinton operatives were spying on President Trump.
Chances are, this new effort focused on getting involved in the Ukraine mess could be the perfect distraction to get Hillary some positive press coverage ahead of another presidential campaign.
The CGI also gives the Clintons an excuse to rally potential wealthy campaign donors ahead of the 2024 election cycle.
But based on their scandal-ridden past, this latest effort also has potential to go sideways fast and become a political liability for Hillary a couple of years from now.
