Since his wife’s loss in 2016, Bill Clinton hasn’t been doing much.
He struggles with even filling a small auditorium for his speaking engagements.
But that could change after Bill Clinton made a huge announcement about his future.
Bill Clinton’s presidency is a dark stain in the history of the United States.
During his presidency, the man who has been credibly accused of sexual assault and rape engaged in sexual activities with a White House intern, only to later lie about it.
Since that day he has been on the sidelines in politics, only jumping back in majorly during his wife’s presidential campaigns.
Now with that over, nobody takes him seriously.
But he’s hoping to change that, while at the same time elevating his daughter Chelsea, who is the future of the Clinton family.
He is launching a new podcast, with his daughter called “Why Am I Telling You This?” to tell stories about his political career, as well as promote causes of the Clinton Foundation.
The former Secretary of State and two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will have no major role in the podcast.
This shows just how far the former President has fallen.
While former President Barack Obama is gaining massive television deals, Bill Clinton is stuck doing a podcast to promote his scandal-ridden foundation.
In the announcement of the podcast, the former President states:
“Growing up in Arkansas just after World War II in a family that didn’t have a lot of money, most of our entertainment revolved around storytelling. Listening to my relatives and neighbors tell stories showed me that everyone has a story, and that everyone’s story has value.”
This is also one of the biggest recent developments with his family’s foundation.
The once powerful foundation has been the subject of much controversy for accusations of a “Pay to play” scandal.
It alleges that Hillary Clinton was using her influence both as Secretary of State, and later a possible President to gain donations to the foundation to enrich her own family.
The 2015 book Clinton Cash, explains exactly how the process works.
It works like this:
A wealthy individual or government official wants favors from the well-connected Clinton family.
So in order to gain those favors, they donate a huge sum to the Clinton Foundation.
In dozens of cases, large donors to the Clinton Foundation have been receiving high-level government jobs and deals.
The most infamous scandal relating to the Clinton Foundation is Uranium One.
Uranium One is a Russian company that gained a majority stake in a Canadian company with mining rights on Uranium in the United States.
Immediately after the 2010 deal, a Russian investment bank paid Bill Clinton $500,000 to speak in Russia.
That same investment bank was promoting the Uranium One stock, giving them a huge incentive to be friendly with the Clinton family.
The foundation is losing tens of millions of dollars since the failure of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, proving that many donors only care about political power.
Do you think Bill Clinton is done for as a political figure?
