Ripped From The Headlines: Memo Outlined Clinton Enrichment Schemes

The Clinton Foundation’s record of scandals is being splashed across front pages once again. A new memo by former top Bill Clinton aide Doug Band details how the Clintons’ corporate ties enriched both the family and the Clinton Foundation:

“When top Bill Clinton aide Douglas Band wrote the memo, he was a central player at the Clinton Foundation and president of his own corporate consulting firm. He made a case that his work had served the interests of the family and its charity. In doing so, Band also detailed a circle of enrichment in which he raised money for the Clinton Foundation from top-tier corporations such as Dow Chemical and Coca-Cola while pressing many of those same donors to provide personal income to the former president and sign on as clients of Band’s firm, Teneo.”
