WikiLeaks: Bill and Chelsea Clinton's 'Office Crap' Almost Drove Clinton Foundation Official to Suicide
In 2011, the office behavior of Bill and Chelsea Clinton almost drove the Clinton Foundation's chief operating officer to suicide. This information was revealed in a hacked email released by WikiLeaks today.
Doug Band, an adviser to Bill Clinton at the time, sent an email to Cheryl Mills and copied John Podesta and Justin Cooper. Band informed them that he had just talked the Clinton Foundation's COO out of driving her car into the New York City bay.
“Late last night, laura graham called me as she couldn’t reach my brother or her shrink,” Band wrote in a Dec. 2011 email chain titled "Draft Infrastructure Model”:
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. 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 refers to William Jefferson Clinton and Chelsea Victoria Clinton.
Band wrote that this wasn't the first time he had prevented Graham from killing herself in recent months.
I spent a while on the phone with her preventing her from doing that, as I have a few times in the past few months, and was able to reach roger and her shrink.
Band also described how working at the Clinton Foundation office had stressed out Chairman of the Board Bruce Lindsey to the point that Lindsey's health was seriously affected.
