Office politics and associated drama can be difficult to navigate in any organization, but it is allegedly far worse in the Clinton Foundation, where working there could be hazardous to your health.
This is the same charity that critics claim is a pay-for-play scheme whereby foreign governments and multinational corporations made huge cash donations in exchange for favorable treatment from the US State Department while Hillary Clinton was in charge of the agency.
The tension inside the so-called nonprofit almost caused a top Clinton Foundation official to consider suicide, new emails released by Wikileaks suggest.
Then-Clinton Foundation Chief Operating Officer Laura Graham allegedly almost drove her car into the water because she couldn’t take it anymore. Top Clinton aide Doug Band talked her out of it, according to a December 2011 leaked email chain.
From The Daily Caller:
‘She was on Staten Island in her car parked a few feet from the waters edge with her foot on the gas pedal and the car in park,’ he wrote. ‘She called me to tell me the stress of all of this office crap with wjc and cvc as well as that of her family had driven her to the edge and she couldn’t take it anymore…’
WJC and CVC likely refer to William J. Clinton and Chelsea Victoria Clinton, the husband and daughter of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton…Band went on to criticize Chelsea for not caring about how her supposed office drama harmed two top foundation officials.
In the hacked emails, Doug Band also allegedly referred to Chelsea Clinton, 36 as a “spoiled brat” for meddling in Teneo, his consulting firm.
Chelsea Clinton considers herself a long-time environmentalist, but last month she traveled by gas-guzzling private jet to several stops in North Carolina while campaigning for her mother, thereby contravening the campaign’s promise to be carbon neutral.
