It was in 2012 that the former top aide for Bill Clinton wrote that Chelsea Clinton had been using the resources of the Clinton Foundation “for her wedding and life for a decade” and a top Foundation donor was responsible for “killing” unfavorable press coverage – all as an internal Foundation audit uncovered numerous conflicts of interest and “quid pro quo benefits,” according to emails released Sunday by WikiLeaks.
It was Doug Band, the founder of a global strategies group and Bill Clinton’s former personal assistant who wrote this email the campaign manager for Hillary, John Podesta. After Chelsea had said to “one of the [President] bush 43 kids” and others about “an internal investigation of money within the foundation.” Band wrote such chatter was “not smart.”
“The investigation into her getting paid for campaigning, using foundation resources for her wedding and life for a decade, taxes on money from her parents….,” Band wrote. “I hope that you will speak to her and end this[.] Once we go down this road….”
The FBI has reportedly been looking into the Foundation for some time now and this email sequence posing a lot of suspect questions.
