Clinton aide says Foundation paid for Chelsea’s wedding, WikiLeaks emails show

Former President Bill Clinton’s top aide wrote in 2012 that Chelsea Clinton used Clinton Foundation resources “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.

Doug Band, founder of global strategies company Teneo and Bill Clinton’s personal assistant since the 1990s, wrote the Jan. 4, 2012, email to future Hillary Clinton presidential campaign chair John Podesta and two other Clinton aides after receiving word that Chelsea had told “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….”


What else is a 501©3 good for if not funding lavish lifestyles. :shrug:


Too late…Trump’s own words on film cost him the election on October 7th.


this thread is not about the election. it is about the Clinton Foundation.
Do you think if Trump loses the investigation of the foundation will stop?


Chelsea’s husband allegedly used foundation ties to boost hedge fund


Of course the thread is about the election. Pure and simple.


Way to answer the question, Neo. :rolleyes:

So what do you think of the investigation? Will it stop once we crown our new queen of crime?


And Trump uses his “foundation” to pay off his business lawsuits and to buy paintings of himself for his hotels, and spends his campaign money on his family. Same trash different candidate.:shrug:


Maybe a separate thread on this topic would be better; this is about the Clinton Foundation… just a thought.


Hoping to hear comments on this topic ( and not Trump, just sayin’)


No one (particularly those on the left) want to address the issue.

My opinion: If Clinton wins tomorrow, nothing will come of this or any other criminality she does over the course of her presidency. If Trump wins, he may or may not follow through with investigating her criminality. If Gary Johnson wins…sorry, he won’t be winning.


No, Gary Johnson won’t be winning… But wouldn’t it be nice if he did? He’s far more honest than either of the two major candidates!

I’m sick of the repeated scandals of both Clinton and Trump. Sick of it.


Don’t hold pour breath!! Many Catholics and all Christians, still have time to wake up!!! God Bless, Memaw


Is there NO end to all this??? God Bless, Memaw


There won’t be if hillary wins. She’s been planning for this her whole life.




so if Hillary wins, the FBI will stop the investigation?


They’ll pretend to wind it down with “nothing found”. Why? Because they know it will be futile since Hillary can pardon herself if she wins, and because the Clinton organization will take revenge if they don’t.


Bill Clinton didn’t pardon himself after being impeached.


So that makes it alright? If you want to talk about Trump’s foundation, start another thread.
