I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Inside a PowerShell script (the "Add-Type" only needs to be done once in a script or a single console session):
Add-Type -AssemblyName 'System.Windows.Forms'

Open in new window

Or to set the clipboard to a given text:
[System.Windows.Forms.Clipboard]::SetText("Some text")

Open in new window

Or with clip.exe (the Add-Type is not required):
$null | & C:\Windows\system32\clip.exe

Open in new window

Or to set the clipboard:
"Some text" | & C:\Windows\system32\clip.exe

Open in new window

For PowerShell, you can also use the *-Clipboard cmdlets in Win10.
Set-Clipboard -Value $null

Open in new window

It would be interesting to know why you would want to do that. In what situation are you that you can't simply populate the cb with whatever manually, why will you have to use code?
