Of all the discoveries revealed as part of the Wikileaks Podesta email dump over the past month, perhaps none has been as damaging to the reputation of the Clinton family as those made by the disgruntled employee of consulting firm Teneo (which was closely linked to the Clinton Global Initiative and Clinton Foundation), Doug Band.
As we previously reported, in the last email dump released overnight, as part of Band's ongoing feud with Chelsea Clinton and her allegations that he was misusing the Clinton name to enrich himself, Doug Band accused Chelsea Clinton of using Foundation money to pay for her wedding:
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
In the latest email batch, Doug Band also revealed that Chelsea's husband Marc Mezvinsky had abused the Clinton Foundation's influence, and his wife's family name, to help him find sources of cash for his hedge fund, Eaglevale, which included such seed sponsors as Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
Marc mez[vinsky] had an idea to put together a poker night for the foundation to raise money. His raising money for his own fund hasn't been going well and he has cvc [Chelsea Clinton] making some calls for him to get mtgs with some clinton people.
Marc has invited several potential investors and a few current business ones to the poker night. I assume all are contributing to the foundation, which of course isn't the point. What is the point is that he is doing precisely what he accused me of doing as the entire plan of his has been to use this for his business which he is.
