Another Day, Another Doug Band Meltdown Over The Clinton Foundation "Conflict Of Interest...

Recommended Posts

Each new WikiLeaks dump of Podesta emails includes at least one gem from Clinton aide Doug Band who seemingly came under internal attack at the Clinton Foundation for his "conflicts of interest." The constant attacks, initiated by Chelsea Clinton, clearly put him on the defensive which caused him to lash out on numerous occasions, over email, like a cornered pitbull.

 

Fortunately, today's WikiLeaks release was no exception and includes the following email in which Band laments about having to sign a "conflict of interest" agreement while Bill Clinton, despite his many conflicts, did not.

 

Oddly, wjc does not have to sign such a document even though he is
personally paid by 3 cgi sponsors
, gets many expensive gifts from them, some that are at home etc

 

 

 

I could add 500 different examples of things like this
and while I removed lasry bc they are all on the offense, I get the sense that they are trying to put some sort of wrong doing on me after the audit as a crutch to change things and if I don't mention things like lasry where they all have issues,
I may regret it

Of course, this is the just the latest email in a series of gems authored by Doug Band which started when Chelsea raised concerns over potential conflicts of interest related to Band's firm, Teneo, which she thought had sought favors from the State Department on behalf of clients, including MF Global.

 

Below is a recap of some of the past exchanges.

With each new WikiLeaks dump, the rabbit hole in the feud between Chelsea Clinton and Doug Band seems to grow a little deeper. The most recent disclosures included a November 11, 2011 email from Chelsea to John Podesta, Cheryl Mills and the Clinton Foundation lawyers at Simpson Thacher in which Chelsea clearly lists out her issues with Clinton aides Doug Band, Justin Cooper and someone referred to only as "Hannah," which is presumably Hannah Deletto, Director of Membership at the Clinton Foundation. Among other things, the email alleges that Justin Cooper installed spyware on Bill Clinton's computer in order to monitor his email traffic, that both Justin Cooper and Hannah Deletto stole "significant sums of money" from the Clintons and that Doug Band / Teneo "hustled business at CGI."

 

Chelsea's list of complaints from her email:

 

- today that Doug reached out to someone at Harry Walker (who represents my father on all speaking arrangements), to ask for a full list of all his speeches, how much he was paid for each speech, and told the contact person at Harry Walker that all speeches should now go through him, not Terry Krinivic (the scheduler)

 

 

 

- that
Ilya physically saw/caught Justin a couple of days ago reading his bberry and loading the same spyware onto his computer that he loaded onto Bari's computer

 

 

 

- a secret service agent told Marc (my husband) that Justin had asked another secret service agent to lie about the parking pass absurdity [we can talk about this really ridiculous anecdote offline]

 

 

 

- multiple people shared with me how upset they were at hearing
how Justin referred to my father in the last week - in very derogatory ways widely sadly

 

 

 

-
Oscar told my father he knows Justin reads his emails

 

 

 

- my father was told today of explicit examples at CGI of
Doug/ Teneo pushing for - and receiving - free memberships - and of multiple examples of Teneo 'hustling' business at CGI
- and of people now having quit at CGI

 

 

 

- that Doug told Jon Davidson he was never going to forgive him for not reporting that Dad met with John (ie you John) on Sunday and that how could Jon forget who he really worked for

 

 

 

-
Doug told Terry Krinivic she would never work again in this town if she didn't back him up on everything

 

 

 

- Ilya believes
Hannah and Justin have taken significant sums of money from my parents personally - some in expenses - cars, etc. - and others directly

As we pointed out yesterday, long-time Clinton aide Doug Band had a bad habit of being brutally honest over email...particularly when it came to his feelings regarding "spoiled brat" Chelsea Clinton. The following example comes from January 2012 when Band forwards a complimentary email from Chelsea (aka "Diane Reynolds") essentially calling her a two-faced backstabber.

 

She sends me one of these types of emails every few days/week

 

 

 

As they say,
the apple doesn't fall far

 

 

 

A kiss on the cheek while she is sticking a knife in the back, and front

 

While it's unclear exactly which parent Band is referencing with his "the apple doesn't fall far" reference, we have our suspicions.

Of course, this wasn't the first time Band intimated his true feelings about Chelsea to Podesta. Just a couple of months earlier, in November 2011, Band sent the following email after Chelsea expressed her views that Band's firm, Teneo, created potential conflicts of interest in going to State Department officials to seek assistance for clients, including MF Global.

 

"She is acting like a spoiled brat kid
who has nothing else to do but create issues to justify what she's doing because she, as she has said,
hasn't found her way and has a lack of focus in her life.
I realize she will be off of this soon but if it doesn't come soon enough...."

After that, the situation escalated to the point that Band sent the following email two days later saying that Chelsea had pushed Clinton Foundation COO, Laura Graham, to the brink of suicide. Within the email Band describes an encounter in which he received a "late night" call from Graham who was:

 

"...on
staten island in her car parked a few feet from the waters edge with her foot on the gas pedal and the car in park.
She called me to tell me the stress of all of this
office crap with wjc and cvc as well as that of her family had driven her to the edge and she couldn't take it anymore."

Seems the real life Clinton drama is every bit as entertaining as their hit HBO series "House of Cards."
