Chelsea used foundation money for her wedding?


"Podesta replied calling his comments an 'understatement'. (concerning Chelsea)

Band replies: 'I learned from the best. 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….,' Band wrote ominously.

Chelsea Clinton's wedding is estimated to have cost about $3 million, but is unclear how much money or resources went from the Foundation to the wedding and what it went toward, if in fact, funds were used.

The FBI is allegedly looking into the dealings of the Clinton Foundation, but it is unclear what – if anything – is being investigated. 

Hillary Clinton has also previously said emails she deleted from her private server were related to Chelsea's wedding, according to FOX News.  

The Clinton Foundation is also going through the process of an internal audit and is trying to untangle itself from Teneo, an advisory firm and investment banking platform company launched by Band in summer 2011."  Daily Mail


 Just thought we should be aware of this e-mail traffic between Podesta and Band.  pl

    None of this will matter to Hillary supporters. They will excuse everything to justify their vote for the Crooked One. Of course, they were rather shrill while lecturing everyone during George W. Bush’s presidency.
    How can they have any credibility any more?

  2. John Minnerath says:

    What next, and to add to this latest, reports HRC had a Filipino maid who worked for her make hard copy prints of documents received on her computer used for official business while at the home unattended. She was properly vetted to handle classified government material? Yeah, right.

    Come Tuesday, the faithful will be asked to drink the kool-aid.
    The rest of us will have piped into our homes.

  4. ked says:

    I found this segment about the server & emails to ring true to the player’s nature;

  5. eakens says:

    Apparently the law means nothing anymore. Did you all see the video of BO encouraging non-citizens to vote. It’s almost unbelievable.

    Sam Peralta,
    They consider us others to be their inferiors in every way. They could care less what we think of their credibility. They stopped caring what we think years ago. We all know how they refer to The Deplorables. Fewer people know how they refer to us Bernie Backers . . . The Disposables, as it were. Bernie Bros, spoiled entitled Leftists, other terms of endearment. A blog called The Confluence . . . google-able under the three words Riverdaughter The Confluence . . . is a perfect parade of their ilk on display.
    Riverdaughter’s co-blogger took an absentee-silence rest from the blog for the whole election season rather than go through the tensions involved in being a Clinto-sceptic on a Clintophiliac blog.
    How many Berners are bitter enough to vote Not Clinton, one way or another? Just enough to make an electoral difference in just enough key states, I hope.
    With only one day left, I suppose Bitter Berners could have some bitter fun referring to Clintophiliacs as KKK members. ( No, no . . . not THAT KKK . . . the OTHer KKK. You know . . . the Klinton Koolaid Kultists).

  7. different clue says:

    With one full day left before Voting Day, I offer something I heard on Michigan State public radio.
    In Michigan, it is legal for absentee voters who have casted an absentee ballot to cast a fresher one which supersedes and cancels-out the earlier one.
    That could be useful knowledge for all those Early Voters who absentee voted for Clinton before the latest batch of E-mails came out. If any of them are having voter’s remorse and wish they could vote based on what they NOW know, it turns out that they can. If they turn in a fresh superseding absentee vote before the end of bussiness day on tomorrow Monday, they can still change their absentee vote to Not Clinton here in Michigan.
    I don’t know if this ability to absentee REvote is legal in any other state. If it is, remorseful early-voters might want to re-vote in those other states as well.

    This afternoon, 6 November, a report is that FBI Director James Comey announced that they have investigated the Hillary Clinton e-mail server matter further and that the (laughable) decision in July that no charges should be filed is also their new decision–
    Those 650,000 e-mails were a snap to go through–

  9. Lars says:

    I am sure the whining will increase now after James Comey has done his Rosanne Rossanadanna imitation. One important question is: What has Hillary Clinton been convicted of? There is a legal standard that should still be observed.

  10. Sam Peralta says:

    different clue
    Unlike the Deplorables who took a stand and voted out all the GOP establishment candidates in the primary, it seems that many Bernie Bros despite how Bernie was shafted by the DNC and the nomination stolen by the Crooked One, will vote for her.
    We’ll see how it all turns out on Tuesday. A Trump win, while completely unexpected, will be YUUGE!! It would be such a treat just to watch all the Borgist pundits keel over in horror.

  11. TV says:

    Begging your pardon Col., but this is not news.
    The NEWS is that Trump said “pu$$y.”

  12. turcopolier says:

    Yes, a disgrace to the human race. Oh, sorry. It would be difficult to disgrace the human race. pl

  13. turcopolier says:

    I prefer Fr. Guido Sarducci as an analog. pl

  14. Tyler says:

    You’ve convinced me. This is all on the up and up and not proof that the whole system is rigged as Trump has said.
    From the moment Comey announced last week, it was a total Xanatos Gambit for Trump.

  15. Tyler says:

    No matter how this played out, it was a victory for Trump. Indictment goes without saying, but this reeks of someone being made an offer they can’t refuse.
    The hardcore Borg Drones were never going to vote for Trump (witness the Shrew Crew here) but this sort of two tiered legal nonsense is obvious and pisses a lot of people off.

  16. JMGavin says:

    You clearly don’t understand the nature and purpose of the law. The law serves to keep the rabble in line.
    It will all be over soon…

  17. GulfCoastPirate says:

    Do some of you folks never learn? You’ve got the alt-right throwing spaghetti against the wall over and over and over and NOTHING ever sticks. Comey’s statement today:
    After all we heard on here about how terrible this was and how this was going to lead to the end of the Clinton’s it turns out to be a nothing-burger. NOTHING. Now you folks are going to pin your hopes on this supposed investigation of the foundation? When are some of you folks going to figure out you’re being used – and not by the so-called establishment?

  18. turcopolier says:

    All we can do is thank you for your patience with us. pl

  19. eakens says:

    Actually that’s why I said it’s almost unbelievable.

  20. Tyler says:

    But what if the exoneration is a ploy by the dastardly Alt Right to make it look like innocent lamb Hillary actually pressured the FBI to clear her before the election??? That would be the kind of thing that all powerful cabal would do, the villains!
    Wheels within wheels my friend. Trust no one.

  21. steve says:

    Who would’ve thought that Iowa a resolutely dem state in presidential elections, of all places, would turn out to be a reliably red state?
    Saves me the dilemma of considering a vote for Trump and, instead will vote for Jill Stein with the reassurance that my state will not go for Hillary regardless.

  22. Mike P says:

    David Brooks: Less Educated Will Vote For Trump No Matter What, “Going With Their Gene Pool”
    Univ. of Texas– currently teaching at Harvard Law– professor Sanford Levinson “Trump is a sociopath and if elected it might be necessary to stage a military coup to take him out.”
    The neocons are bitterly against Trump and anti-Russia. I follow the younger neocon tribesmen (Ian Bremmer, Michael Weiss, et al.) on Twitter. They are more foaming at the mouth against Putin and Russia than they ever were before ginning up the goyim for war against Iraq. But it no longer matters if the American people are against a military or geopolitical action. They have no say anymore.

  23. Nancy K says:

    Almost all of the Bernie supporters I know are voting got Hillary. For heaven’s sake even Bernie is voting for Hillary.
    Hillary may not win by a landslide but she will win. My hope is Dems will win the Senate also.

  24. Mike P says:

    Borgist think long term. First they seek to degrade and eliminate Christians and Christian culture. This is that the root of the push for multiculturalism in the white Christian societies. If you haven’t seen this short news piece on multiculturalism in Sweden, please do. Very revealing:

  25. Bobo says:

    As to the topic of the thread and not to blow the kids mind but the wedding was the reason for her parents party for all their friends, benefactors and future benefactors to their various foundations. While Chelsea was cherished by all that day she is the daughter of wjc and his foundations footed the bills in his behalf and if ever questioned on it I’m sure he can quote every deal cut that day in behalf of his foundation.
    To that other news it really does not matter much as it just provides a taste of other future investigations to come should she be lucky enough to prevail though running around to Michigan, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Nevada, Iowa tells us all that a few of these will pop the other way. It’s close, closer than most thought on either side so “May the Best Man Win”.

  26. gowithit says:

    Probably able to put in a program to topic/word search the emails. Then also exclude having to read emails addressed to/from non-pertinent individuals

  27. doug says:

    Yes, the peasants are revolting.
    But so are the elites and they have less of an excuse.
    God help us all.

  28. TV says:

    Trump never had a chance and probably no other Republican would have done much better.
    Here’s why:
    ~ 20% of the voters have a stake in Obama/Clinton all government all the time.
    Academics, unions, public employees, anyone inside-the-beltway.
    Then there’s the ~ 30-40% of clueless dimwits who aren’t sure if the Sun comes up in the east or the west but are experts on …the Kardashians, for example.

  29. GulfCoastPirate says:

    I trust you are a man of your word and will be sending a check to Planned Parenthood Wednesday morning.

  30. Stephanie says:

    No, he’s Emily Litella. (“Never mind.”) Nothing must come of nothing.
    I assume now the conspiracy-minded will turn to the Clinton Foundation. There is in fact a foundation of a presidential candidate in this cycle that has run into legal trouble with the authorities and seems to have been used as a family piggy bank, but the name on it isn’t Clinton…..

  31. Daniel Nicolas says:

    Clinton was not cleared by the FBI. They only said that they do not recommend prosecution by the DOJ.
    Why do they not recommend? Because the Obama DOJ has been purchased by the Clintons. The Future Trump administration DOJ can ask the FBI for all the files and move the case forward.

  32. LondonBob says:

    Last day of campaigning will be dominated by Hillary and her trysts with the FBI. Looks really rigged to anyone except her core support, what a turnoff for independents, and motivator for Republicans.

  33. Tigermoth says:

    In South Africa when we had the referendum whether or not to transition to a new government, pretty much anybody in the country at the time was allowed to vote. So as a “permanent resident” I voted.
    Once the new government took over, only SA citizens proper where allowed to vote this of course, was made to include the entire prison population, as they would be, for the most, part ANC supporters. I was good enough to get them in, but no more voting for me.
    Personally, I don’t have a problem with only a country’s citizens being able to vote, I think one should have that commitment to the country first. But I also feel that if one has been convicted of breaking the country’s laws that that right should not be available at least while serving time.

  34. Freudenschade says:

    This is an intriguing excerpt from one of Band’s emails. It tempting to view this as sour grapes on his part at being elbowed out by WJC’s daughter. I’ve been looking for additional information on this but have not yet found any FBI leaks on the topic. Will wait and see.

  35. Tyler says:

    Your power of denial, if harnessed, could be used to run the Northeast power grid.

  36. Tyler says:

    You are smoking something stronger than menthols if you think this changes anything for HRC.

  37. mike allen says:

    Tyler –
    And don’t forget our smoked-salmon/muledeer-jerky bet. But if you miss out on bagging your deer, then I will consider it payed off if you post a picture here of yourself wearing a Hillary Tee and surrounded by work associates. And smiling, you have to be smiling to discharge the debt.

  38. Cee says:

    I know quite a few of us who didn’t or aren’t voting for HRC. Some are keeping it secret because of the rancor involved. Me, I don’t give a damn, i voted for Trump to try to stop that criminal, crazed bitch. Bring it. I was even screamed at by friends when visiting their home a few weeks ago.
    I told them I’ll still be a shoulder from them to cry on IF HRC wins and fks up as much as Powell says she will but I will also remind them I TOLD THEM SO!!! BTW, I haven’t been wrong about the events since 9/11 till now and I reminded them of that is well. What is everybody’s choice of booze for tomorrow night?

  39. Bobo says:

    Sounds like torture to me….though you will be sending that nice piece of Salmon to him. On your other bet Tyler remember Donald mentioned that there is some value in Planned Parenthood.

  40. robt willmann says:

    I think that Trump has the edge in prospective voters and in that sense should win. Since it has not been possible to verify the validity of the constant barrage of opinion polls since the Democratic National Convention, the only objective indicator is the size of the crowds at campaign rallies. The numbers at Trump events are overwhelming, and people who go to the trouble to go to those rallies are very likely to be voters.
    However, none of that matters, as I have mentioned before. The electronic voting machines, tabulating computers, and any computers that aggregate voting results will decide the election. If they are programmed correctly and run correctly, they will reflect the vote. If they have been programmed for fraud, or have been or will be penetrated and hacked, they will produce a false result for the desired winner. There is no way to know whether the result of the election is correct or not, and you cannot tell whether any fraud has occurred. It is impossible to do a recount and is impossible to do an audit.
    If there is going to be computerized voting fraud, in my opinion it will be done in favor of Hillary Clinton. Trump has constantly and correctly attacked the deceptive and job-destroying trade agreements, which have been a taboo subject, and has pointed out the obvious bias of the mass media, another taboo. He has been stirring a lot of people up to oppose the status quo, still another taboo.
    So I cannot guess how the election will turn out.
    But some people are guessing (or maybe not guessing), as Newsweek magazine put out its edition to bookstores and its cover says, Madame President, with a flattering photo of Hillary. A bookstore worker took a photo and put it on the Internet. Newsweek says it has a cover for a Trump victory, but only the full magazine that has been printed has Hillary winning–

  41. different clue says:

    Nancy K,
    Bernie promised and pledged ahead of time that in return for being permitted by the Party to run as a Democrat in the primaries, that he would support the Party’s choice if it wasn’t him. So Bernie voting for Clinton is in keeping with the spirit of that pledge.
    There may well be Berners who give in to “reality” and vote for Clinton. It will be interesting to see how many do and how many don’t. I am still torn between voting for an obscure little party which has clawed its way onto the ballot in Michigan . . . or voting Trump to stop the Clintons before they kill again.
    Here is the obscure little party of which I speak.
    Behold! The Working Class Party.

  42. Valissa says:

    OMG Cee, that’s a very good question 😉 I will need to meditate on that and figure out what to drink depending on who wins. This is complicated by the fact that I leave for a Kentucky road trip right after I vote. So if I don’t want to get stuck with the limited choices of a hotel bar in the middle of nowhere in western PA, I’ll have to bring my own.
    On the plus side, I will enjoy watching the election results by myself for a change and freely speak my mind to the television. My current political opinions and related wise-ass cynical sense of humor about politics today are not very popular with my friends or family (though my husband mostly tolerates).

  43. Cee says:

    Enough with this partisian, vagina fueled DENIAL!! HRC hasn’t even denied the bribes!!

  44. rjj says:

    I like Cee’s idea of taking to drink to follow the returns. Probably won’t do it, though – it is likely to backfire badly if The Golden Calf Party prevails.

  45. Tyler says:

    <3 <3 <3 Welcome to the big tent. <3 <3 <3

  46. Tyler says:

    This is all psyops against the US people to make Hillary look “inevitable”.
    I wasn’t around for Reagan, but heard the 1980 election was much like this one.

  47. Cee says:

    I’m glad I’m traveling. My husband is furious that I was right again!!LOL!
    I made Horseradish Bloody Marys last night.

  48. Cee says:

    Rather be the camel in the tent than in the sand. Plus, the truth is truth.:)
