Chelsea Used ‘Foundation Resources for Her Wedding and Life for a Decade,’ Emails Show

An internal investigation revealed Chelsea Clinton used “foundation resources for her wedding and life for a decade,” including campaigning. In an email released by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, Doug Band, a longtime aide to Bill Clinton, lamented over Chelsea’s stewardship to Clinton campaign chair John Podesta.

The bush kid then told someone else who then told an operative within the republican party

Not smart

Worth noting, as you can see from the email, the Bush family remains very close to the Clintons, which may help to explain their antipathy and lack of support for Republican nominee Donald Trump. As insiders have long-known, the Bush and Clinton families are close friends and faux political  rivals. The only difference between Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton winning the White House in 2016 would’ve been a matter of who’s donors were set to benefit.

Mr. Podesta, who other emails released show was a frequent ear for a frustrated Band over Chelsea, wrote back:

—– Original Message —– From: John Podesta [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Wednesday, January 04, 2012 05:00 PM To: Doug Band Cc: [email protected] <[email protected]>; [email protected] <[email protected]> Subject: Re:

You are perfecting your skills for understatement.

Band, a founding partner at Teneo Holdings, an advisory and investment firm knee-deep in the family’s charities, then responded to Podesta with, “I learned from the best,” meaning Bill Clinton.

“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….,” he wrote to Podesta. “I hope that you will speak to her and end this Once we go down this road….[sic]”

The Clinton Foundation is currently the subject of a criminal probe by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI’s White Collar Crime Division is handling the investigation, which was characterized as a “very high priority” probe into allegations of corrupt pay-for-play between Mrs. Clinton and the foundation during her tenure as secretary of state.

Multiple FBI offices–including regional Bureau’s in D.C., New York, Arkansas and California–have been investigating the Clinton Foundation for at least a year. Agents familiar with the case say they have been receiving pushback from officials at the Department of Justice, who are withholding “invaluable” tools, such as wire taps, supoena power, warrants and ability to convene a grand jury.
