Doug Band Accuses Chelsea Of Using Clinton Foundation Money To Pay For Her Wedding

Tyler Durden's picture

A couple of days ago we shared a Podesta email from Doug Band about Chelsea talking openly in public about her "internal investigation" into the Clinton Foundation. 

As with many of the Doug Band email chains, the rabbit hole just got a little deeper today with Band accusing of Chelsea of "using foundation resources for her wedding and life for a decade" among other accusations.  He also concludes with another veiled threat on the consequences "once we go down this road...."

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....


Doug Band


The implications are troubling: as our friends from the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation point out, "*If true* people (then) worth well into 8 figures used 501c3 $ to pay for a wedding."

The latest Band email comes after he previously accused Chelsea of talking about her "internal investigation" in the Clinton Foundation with "one of the bush 43 kids."

I just received a call from a close friend of wjcs who said that cvc told one of the bush 43 kids that she is conducting an internal investigation of money within the foundation from cgi to the foundation


The bush kid then told someone else who then told an operative within the republican party


I have heard more and more chatter of cvc and bari talking about lots of what is going on internally to people


Not smart

Something tells us that Chelsea and Doug may not be on speaking terms for a while after all the WikiLeaks revelations.

Why the little fraudlette! I wonder where she ever got an idea like that from?

All that whining was going on when everything was still honky-dory for the Clintons and the Foundation.

Now, after the shit has hit the fan, all those rats won’t be leaving the ship – they’ll be eating each other alive.   ;-)

God I hope so. I hope they all start turning on each other, and sink the Clinton Cartel straight into the deepest, darkest prison we have.

If it was anyone else (except perhaps the Obamas), they would already be in prison. We are certifiably into banana republic territory if the hildabeast is elected.

Forward (over the cliff)!

It was just a charity wedding. Relax everyone!

What good is a slush fund if you can't use it?

Bill, Hillary, Chelsea for Prison!

It is funny to see the focus totally on the Clintons. Sure, they go down and everything is rosy, right? No chance. The US is grifter-occupied territory. Once you start, you have to go full in, all or nothing. Every occupied department has to be cleared of grifters. No stopping until it is done.

This one will have to go down in history. Royalty celebrates at fabulously epensive wedding while Haitians starve to death.

The vendors will have payment records for the FBI to look through. In Hillary's mind, the wedding is a justifiable Foundation expense. Probably listed it as a fundraiser on the 990 for 2010.

According to estimates and reports, the $2 million to $5 million event held in Rhinebeck, NY included:

$750,000 for catering, according to Brides magazine deputy editor Sally Kilbridge

$11,000 for the cake, which is reportedly gluten-free

$250,000 worth of jewelry for the bride

$109,000 for the tables and crockery for around 400 to 500 invitees

$600,000 in air-conditioned tents, complete with glass walls

$200,000 in extra security, paid for by the Clintons

$15,000 in high-class toilets, according to online gossip site TMZ

$500,000 in flowers arranged by Jeff Leatham, who’s worked with Madonna and other celebrities

Wine as a party favor from Clinton Vineyards (which has no relation to the presidential family)

How much for the Ghislaine Maxwell travel, accomodations, & expenses? (or was that included in the high class toilet budget)

No wonder Hillary deleted the wedding e-mails. Bet she used foundation money to pay for her yoga classes too.

jcaz's picture

Here's the moment of truth for Hillary-

She COULD just blame the wedding on Chelsea.  Now that Chelsea is in charge,  she's culpable.  If I am a prosecutor, I'm going for Chelsea's throat here- all out;

Does Hillary throw Chelsea under the bus for this?

My guess is that she'll try.

THAT is the evil we're dealing with here-  Hillary will literally eat her own young if she has to........

I think all trumpeters and their friends will get a good laugh out of this one...

The Insane Asylum the US is...

So Hillary and Trump walk into a bar ;-)

Clinton Campaign suggests having Hillary "beat the shit" out of a staffer so she will act charming in an uncoming interview.

If ever an email deserved it's own thread:

Subject: Villarreal--potential flag


So, not to be a complete pain in the ass, but I found a potential flag about Jose Villarreal. I was re-reading the self research documents and it looks like he's snared up in the conflict of interest stuff at State...not the WORST thing in the world, but there's a real argument here that he was at the nexus of foundation/state issues. Mostly trumped up, but I'd question if we want him as an officer. Again, sorry to be a pain on this, but I think it's important.

As Secretary, Clinton took advantage of her financial networks and corporate connections to raise over $72 million from 66 corporations for the United States Pavilion at the World’s Fair in Shanghai in 2010. She also appointed a longtime friend of the family, Jose Villarreal, to be the Commissioner General of the U.S.’s Expo in Shanghai. When soliciting contributions, Clinton had little consideration for ethics, as the corporations who were featured in Shanghai also contributed to her foundation and received accolades from the State Department. For example, some of the biggest contributors to Shanghai, including Proctor & Gamble, Boeing, and General Electric, all received favorable treatment from the State Department. The corporate contributions were a boon for Clinton,giving her a public relations win as she helped save the privately-funded U.S. pavilion. But in doing so, Clinton allowed the corporations to become the centerpiece of an exhibit that is supposed to emphasize American values. As the Washington Post noted, the American pavilion was “larded with corporate advertising” but contained “no messages about democracy or freedom of expression or religious beliefs.” In her haste to help herself and her corporate allies, Clinton forgot the purpose of American participation in events like the expo.
The last line? A true definition of HRC.
CuttingEdge's picture

Only my opinion, but it actually bears a more accurate reflection on the woman and her personal agenda than anything else released.


Oh, in case (like me) anyone missed the Anonymous expose on Huma Abedin with everything else going on...some seriously disturbing shit right there.

How about her $10million NY apartment?

She only wants an internal investigation into others who are taking her slice of the pie. How dare they!! It's all MINE!!!

If Hillary walked into it then it must be a pretty low bar..

(Maybe that 'splains the staggering and left-eye discombobulation..)

I believe she's due a refund for those yoga lessons...

Probably in here under "other" expenses.

Clinton Foundation 2010 IRS 990 form. An unusual amount of money went to "salaries and other compensation". And millions of dollars cannot be accounted for without a full audit.

To be "charitable" about $715k of that stuff was probably rented. Either that or they have THE BEST garage sales. Who wouldn't pay bargain prices for a tent you can fit a split level ranch house and garden into?

I agree, mindful that there's a final snowflake for every avalanche. And since the Clinton Crime Syndicate is a growing snowball, look out below.

FreedomGuy's picture

That is my fear, that virtually all government agencies are corrupted from the top down. Hillary not only cements but expands it. In fact, the corruption will expand exponentially to elections themselves. America will become a kind of depressing Pottersville while the fascist press tells us all is well. All failures will be due to the opposition party even if a minority.

I can go on but even those Republican RINO'/0s you see will become an extended branch, not just the level you see now.

Trump is no savior or ideological enlightenment. He IS a loose canon but he is from outside the corruption.

jcaz's picture

If nothing else,  Trump is the right step in getting a grip on this out-of-control train.

We need an asshole in charge, who isn't afraid of pissing off all the establishment that needs to go.

Who else but Trump?  ANY of the other candidates are more of the same.....

They are all corrupt.

You don't get anywhere if you aren't.

When I read the Franklin Cover up 20 yrs ago I was sickened and part of you thinks it may not be true because it is so horrific.

Pluto comes mid Capricorn and it is exposed and it is WORSE than you ever dreamed possible.

Its all been a lie. For 100 yrs they have been killing our own people for POWER in all these wars.

People who tried to expose them were ruined, and or murdered!

I can't take this anymore, it all makes me SICK.

I feel physcially ill from reading all this crap.

As they took Capone down on TAX FRAUD... so they can now already take down Chelsea the Clinton Brat for not paying taxes on her "income".

That money she took for her wedding? was taxfree....

expenses? taxfree....


or should go to jail unless mama becomes dictator....


One of the reasons the FBI was created was for stuff like this. So this gives them the ammo to take down the syndicate.

Al Capone's mom was not President or we'd still be reading about how he bought his own barrier island, retired and lived happily ever after.

If it were my decision, I'd just ~


- take all the Clinton Foundation holdings & convert them to cash

- stack the cash on pallettes

- send them ALL to Alcatraz Island (with the pallettes of cash stacked right there in front of their rotting decrepit cells)

- Let them all try and use their vast intellects to plan an escape from the island (with their pallettes of cash in tow) "sort of like CLIMBING FOR DOLLARS from 'The Running Man'"


You could charge admission to the public to pay visits to the island & watch them scheme &/or allow 'charitable donations' such as leaky rowboats to be delivered.

If they slip enough to the warden, can they get a condo cell with entertainment center, spa tub and executive chef.  You know,so they don't have to be with the riff-raff.

You sometimes wonder why they all push so much for Hillary, with often illogical resolve? (making them look stupid and ridiculous <I'm looking at you Cuomo>)

Another proof of that - the infinite number of dirt on her would grant you the life you can't even imagine!


Are you a peeedo? No problem! Bill knows someone to serve your needs!

Are you CEO of some telecom corp? Clintons have already experience with Erickson and Haiti!

The transition of the Clinton’s abusing taxpayer money (even more) as they do foundation money is just a few votes away.  Scary

let's take a few clicks out for some additional perspective: the groom set up a hedge fund with Clinton money and Clinton contacts (eg Goldman, etc) only to go down in flames shortly after opening up shop, from tens of millions of easy grifter money to zero.

When you have a loose end in a tangled ball of twine, grab it and start unraveling, don't waste time and energy looking elsewhere around the ball of twine wondering if some other loose end might exist - if there is one you'll come upon it sooner or later.
