Excerpt from Heat Street
Written by Emily Zanotti
One of the most interesting (and, maybe, entertaining) aspects of the Clinton Wikileaks release is the ongoing feud between Chelsea Clinton and her father’s close aide, Doug Band, a sometime leader of the Clinton Foundation. It’s clear the two were at war during Band’s final years at the foundation, with Chelsea firing up investigations of Band’s alleged “hustling”, and Band not only questioning Chelsea’s character, but also her fitness for any kind of employment.
Sunday morning’s Wikileaks dump provided a new wrinkle to the internal hot war: Band, while railing to Clinton family confidante John Podesta about Chelsea’s indiscretions, suggested that Chelsea herself could be on the hook for financial irregularities. In his email to Podesta, Band suggests that Chelsea could be investigated for how she paid for her lavish, $3 million wedding among other things.
