The Clinton Global Initiative is shutting down!
On 12 January, The Clinton Foundation just did a WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) filing. It says the reason for the firing of 22 employees is “Discontinuation of the Clinton Global Initiative.”
Here’s a screenshot of the filing:
Twenty-two workers are affected.

In September, it was announced that the Clinton Global Initiative was cutting back.
CGI at its peak employed around 200 full-time staffers. Many of those have sought — or accepted — new jobs in recent months as the fate of the initiative became uncertain. It’s not clear how many remain employed, precisely how many jobs are being eliminated at the end of the year or how many would be retained in 2017. A Clinton Foundation spokesman would not answer those questions, but he defended the foundation’s handling of CGI’s wind-down.
“All full-time CGI employees will have their jobs with benefits at least through the end of the calendar year,” said the spokesman. The foundation is providing departing staff with “a wide range of resources that include career coaching, access to job leads in a variety of fields, and resume and job search strategy,” the spokesman said, explaining, “we informed CGI staff of this transition more than four months before the end of the year, and have provided information about CGI-related roles that will continue.”
Now, it looks like those who made it past the end of the year are being fired, too.
With no more influence, the Clinton Empire is crumbling.
