Aide Said He Was Running 'Bill Clinton Inc.' in New Wikileaks Dump
A 12-page memo written by a former aide to President Bill Clintonillustrates how he and other advisers raised millions of dollars for the Clinton Foundation and the Clintons after they left the White House, according to a new batch of emails released by WikiLeaks.
The purported memo from Doug Band details how he and his team locked in lucrative speaking deals for Bill Clinton and how Band leveraged his work at his global consulting firm, Teneo Strategies, to persuade clients to contribute to the Clinton Foundation. Band described his work as running "Bill Clinton Inc."
"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," Band allegedly said in the document.
A Teneo representative told ABC News in a statement, "As the memo demonstrates, Teneo worked to encourage clients, where appropriate, to support the Clinton Foundation because of the good work that it does around the world. It also clearly shows that Teneo never received any financial benefit or benefit of any kind from doing so."
Band, the Clinton Foundation and staffers for Bill Clinton did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
