WikiLeaks, however, keeps on leaking, and a hacked memo posted Wednesday seems to show what inspired Bill Clinton aide Doug Band to describe Chelsea Clinton as “a spoiled brat kid who has nothing else to do but create issues to justify what she’s doing.”
Teneo’s co-founder called Chelsea Clinton “a spoiled brat kid” after she said the firm was “hustling” for business. https://t.co/uYiO0F9YtV

What Chelsea was doing was retaining a law firm to review just what was going on at the Clinton Foundation, and that’s something Band certainly didn’t need, according to the newly released memo.

Hacked memo: Clinton Foundation fundraisers pressed donors to steer business opportunities to Bill Clinton https://t.co/LobbUZUWhY ?

And here’s the Daily Caller’s take, which includes a little word the other headlines don’t: “illegally.”

In a memo for the law firm of Simpson Thacher, which was conducting the governance review of the nonprofit Clinton Foundation, Band explained how he leveraged his activities within his for-profit consulting firm Teneo to raise funds for the foundation and steer lucrative activities to the Clintons:
… we have in effect served as agents, lawyers, managers and implementers to secure speaking, business and advisory service deals. In support of the President’s for-profit activity, we also have solicited and obtained, as appropriate, in-kind services for the President and his family — for personal travel, hospitality, vacation and the like.
Did somebody say lucrative?

One example of how Clinton, Inc. works can be found in Band’s citation of the for-profit Laureate International University, which donated more than $1.4 million to the Clinton Foundation while paying Bill Clinton $3.5 million a year to serve as “honorary chancellor.”

@washingtonpost Where are the investigations, the probes into illegal practices; other Americans have been arrested for less.

Other Americans have been arrested for less, yes; the Clintons … not so much.
