CGI Is Shutting Down

The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) is shutting down. Did the Initiative run out of influence to peddle? Where is the media?

In a curious side note, it’s ironic that the workers aren’t union workers. The “warn notice” captured in a screenshot below indicates that the workers are not protected by a union.

This was first tweeted out by right-wing journalist Mike Cernovich.

A document filed on January 12, 2017 shows the layoff of a specialist employed by the Clinton Global Initiative as part of a “plant closure”. The reason given was the “Discontinuation of the Clinton Global Initiative.”

This notice comes after reports late last year that the so-called charity was laying off dozens of workers at their New York offices.

The Clinton Global Initiative was founded in 2005 by Bill Clinton and associate Doug Band. A document released by Wikileaks revealed Band was soliciting large numbers of donations for Clinton through his public relations firm, Teneo. CGI had been the source of accusations of corruption for years.
