Hillary Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, allegedly used Clinton Foundation money and other charity resources to fund her wedding to Marc Mezvinsky. This was discovered through a new batch of WikiLeaks emails from top Bill Clinton aide, Doug Band. On January 4, 2012, Band wrote in an email that Chelsea used Foundation resources “for her wedding and life for a decade.” He also alleged a top Foundation donor was responsible for “killing” unfavorable press coverage, according to Fox News. The Clinton Foundation is a non-profit charity run by the Clinton family and formally referred to as the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
Doug Band, who is also the founder of the global strategies company Teneo, emailed a Clinton Foundation Global Initiative board member to complain about Chelsea. He used the initials “cvc” in reference to Chelsea Victoria Clinton, according to Fox News.
“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… I hope that you will speak to her and end this[.] Once we go down this road…”
Podesta said Band’s comments were an “understatement.”
