For the transcript of the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative speech written for then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton see https://popsciencetv.wordpress.com/2016/06/15/hrcremarks2009/
In August 2009 an email including Hillary Clinton’s then- Chief of Staff Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy Jake Sullivan Cheryl then-Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy Jake Sullivan shows that the State Department coordinated with Clinton Foundation staff and helped write Hillary Clinton’s thank you speech to Clinton Foundation supporters, partners and donors for their financial commitments.
In the email chain Mills asked Desai for a “list of commitments during whole session so she can reference more than those just around her speech.”
Caitlin Klevorick the Senior Advisor to the Counselor for the Chief of Staff to the Secretary of State who previously worked for the Clinton Foundation wrote: “one question is if we want to see if there is a decent mass of funds related commitments to announce together at closing as a ‘mega’ commitment.”
Several other government departments besides the State Department were noted as official partners and finance providers for the Clinton Foundation besides including the Centers for Disease Control and various United Nations entities whose funds originate from the U.S. taxpayer.

The transcript of Hillary Clinton’s speech provided confirms that Secretary of State thanked personally those who made financial commitments to her family run foundation.
Clinton stated: “And so I congratulate all who helped to put on this (inaudible) CGI [Clinton Global Initiative]. I especially thank you for having a separate track on girls and women, which I think was well received for all the obvious reasons. (Tremendous Applause.) And this is an exceptional gathering of people who have made exceptional commitments to bettering our world.”
A big thank you to our ‘friends’ for helping point this out and for providing us with video, transcript and emails.
As well a second fundraiser for the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative in 2012 shortly before Hillary Clinton left the post as Secretary of State she also utilised State Department resources for this personal fundraising event
