With the presidential elections just one day away, Hillary Clinton was able to clean up all of her scandals but the recent rumors that her daughter Chelsea has used foundation money to pay for her $3 million wedding are harder to get rid of.
The secret was discovered in a conversation between Doug Band, Bill Clinton’s aide and John Pedesta, the chairman of Hillary’s presidential campaign. Although the emails did not contain any specifications on what kind of resources were taken for the personal interest of Chelsea, we can attest that Chelsea was removing money from non-profit Clinton Foundation.
The first email from Band to Podesta is from back in 2012: “I just received a call from a close friend of (William Jefferson Clinton) who said that cvc told one of the (George W Bush) kids that she is conducting an internal investigation of money within the foundation from cgi to the foundation,” he said. “The Bush kid then told someone who told an operative within the republican party.” Added Band, “I have heard more and more chatter of cvc and (Bari Lurie, chief of staff to Chelsea Clinton at the Clinton Foundation) talking about lots of what is going internally to people. Not smart.”
Podesta’s reply to Band’s email was suspicious, saying that what he said was an understatement. At which Band messaged him that: “I learned from the best. 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 goes on, “I hope that you will speak to her and end this. Once we go down this road…”
Oh no! That sounds so shady and just wrong on so many levels. Let’s just hope that Hillary can somehow explain all of this as well. What if the emails are fabricated in order to create more scandals around Hillary before the big showdown on Tuesday? If they are real do you think they might affect Hillary’s chances to win the elections?
