WikiLeaks: Top Clinton Adviser Said Calling Chelsea Clinton ‘Not Smart’ Is An Understatement

Published

We know Chelsea Clinton as the first daughter of the former president Bill Clinton and Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. For years, the media has protected Chelsea and sent the word out that she is out of bounds when it comes to criticism.

A newly released WikiLeaks email has revealed that John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman lamented that Chelsea Clinton is “not smart” for revealing sensitive information to one of George W. Bush’s daughters. Podesta’s email expresses how he felt about Chelsea’s actions.

In an email exchange from 2012, John Podesta wrote to John Band as well as other Clinton aids that branding Chelsea’s loose lip “not smart” was an “understatement.” Band had sent an email to Podesta complaining that Chelsea had told one of George W. Bush’s kids that she had launched an investigation of the Clinton Foundation’s money.

Band went ahead to claim that Bush’s daughter then told someone else, who then shared the information with the Republican Party. Band concluded his email saying that he had heard more chatter made by Clinton’s daughter talking about many other things going on within the foundation to other people. To which he finalized his email, “Not smart.”

The email was sent by Podesta with one line included as a confirmation of Doug Band’s concerns. These emails were sent when Chelsea was working as a special correspondent for NBC. She later quit her job, having made reports that by a single account she made $26,724 for every minute she was on-air.

This was not the first time the ex-first daughter of former president Bill Clinton has been implicated in hacked emails in negative light. Band also branded Chelsea a “spoiled brat kid” for trying to seize his position in yet another email. Chelsea Clinton and Band appeared to differ in another email, but it was unclear what the difference was.

John Band worked as a top adviser for Bill Clinton in the White House and he was influential in the Clinton Global Initiative as well as the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton campaign team has alleged that WikiLeaks is working with the Vladmir Putin’s administration in a bid to throw the presidential election to Donald Trump. While it is yet to be confirmed the legitimacy of those emails, the Clinton campaign team hasn’t denied their accuracy.
