The Clintons have been criticized for inappropriately using The Clinton Foundation, by giving large donors access to the highest levels of our government. Now it turns out that First Daughter Chelsea Clinton may have been involved in some shady activity in relation to the charity, too.
Failed former Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton got into a great deal of hot water during the campaign for her management of her so-called “charity” the Clinton Foundation, which was finally unmasked as a pay-to-play scheme. Now we are finding out more about Chelsea’s central role in the organization, and how she used money to fund her own interests.
According to internal Clinton emails recently leaked by Wikileaks, reported on by Fox News, Chelsea diverted a significant amount of money from the charity, which was supposed to spent on providing healthcare to needy people around the world, to pay for her extravagant wedding.
If this is indeed what happened, Chelsea could face steep consequences, including jail time.
Bill Clinton’s former top aide Doug Band referred in a January 4, 2012 email about Chelsea’s spending of charity money, saying, “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.” He said to John Podesta, “I hope that you will speak to her and end this. Once we go down this road…”
The email also revealed that Chelsea was foolish enough to tell George W. Bush’s daughters about it, saying, “The bush kid then told someone else who told an operative within the republican party.”
