Hillary And Bill Clinton: The "Bonnie & Clyde" Of American Politics

Submitted by Wayne Madsen via Strategic-Culture.org, Whether the information originated from hacked e-mails and computer files or Freedom of Information Act requests, the revelations about the political and business activities of Hillary and Bill Clinton and their cronies hearken back to another era, the Great Depression of the 1930s and the crime spree of another unscrupulous couple: bank robbery desperados Bonnie and Clyde. Aside from Hillary Clinton running her own lucrative «off-the-books» foreign policy via her private email servers and e-mail chain of associates and flunkies, it was her and her husband’s joint Clinton Foundation and Teneo Capital operations that scream out the word «corruption.» The servers were merely a mechanism by which the Clintons ran their own «pay-to-play» racketeering operation, something that would have been the envy of a contemporary of Bonnie and Clyde, Chicago crime boss Al Capone. Teneo, which runs a hedge fund operation and a «private intelligence» service jam-packed with former Central Intelligence Agency operatives, is where Mrs. Clinton’s «gal pal» and aide Huma Abedin worked simultaneously to her government employment with the State Department. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s probe of 650,000 emails found on the laptop computer of disgraced former New York Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Abedin, is but the proverbial tip of the iceberg. While FBI agents pore through Abedin’s emails that were discovered on the laptop and looking Mrs. Clinton’s emails that were either not destroyed by her aides or which were never accounted for, the real story is the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation and Teneo. Five FBI field offices are investigating the racketeering of the foundation and the foreign connections of Teneo. The offices include New York; Los Angeles; Washington, D.C.; Little Rock, Arkansas; and Miami. Little Rock is the home of the Clinton Foundation, while New York is the home base of Teneo. The addition of the Miami field office to the Clinton probe is significant. One of Teneo Intelligence’s many global offices is located in Bogota, Colombia. A secretive Colombian private equity fund, «Fondo Acceso», financed by Mexican mega-billionaire Carlos Slim and Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra, is run out of the Clinton Foundation’s Bogota office. Tracking the money being fed into the Clinton Foundation may include proceeds from the illegal narcotics traffic in Colombia and other nearby countries. The Bogota activities of the Clinton Foundation, «Fondo Acceso», which ironically means «Access Fund», and Teneo appear to be concentrated in the Chico Business Park in the Colombian capital. Therefore, the involvement of the Miami office, in investigating Clinton Foundation funding, including the major donations from Slim and Giustra, makes a world of sense. Teneo was co-founded by longtime Bill Clinton associate Doug Band, who served in Clinton’s White House Counsel’s Office and later as Clinton’s chief aide in the Clinton Foundation and its associated Clinton Global Initiative. Band’s brother is Bill Clinton’s medical doctor who accompanies the ex-president on foreign trips. Doug Band was the point person who lobbied the incoming Barack Obama administration in 2008 to appoint Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Mrs. Clinton’s tenure at State ensured that there was little separation between her department, the Clinton Foundation and Global Initiative, and Teneo. Abedin served as Mrs. Clinton’s «transition team» leader as the Secretary of State left the department to launch her presidential candidacy after the November 2012 election. From that time on, Mrs. Clinton, Abedin, Doug Band, Clinton’s campaign chief John Podesta, and others engaged in an email flurry to 1) ensure that the files in the private servers were either scrubbed or sanitized; 2) to officially sever all links between them and the Clinton Foundation and Teneo; and 3) to paint a picture for the public that all was well and legal with Mrs. Clinton’s term as America’s chief foreign policy executive. Unfortunately, the entire Clinton team has been exposed with the publication of emails from Mrs. Clinton’s swearing in as Secretary of State in 2009 to after she launched her campaign for the White House in 2013. The picture painted by the emails is one of modern-day gangsters milking everything they possibly could out of supposed public service. The FBI’s New York field office is also likely looking at Teneo’s dealings with other Clinton allies. It was Teneo that advised former New Jersey Democratic Governor Jon Corzine's MF Global investment firm as it was collapsing amid charges of major fraud by Corzine, a Clinton loyalist. It is also known as Mrs. Clinton communicated with President Obama over her private server and that Obama used a pseudonym. Obama lied to the American people when he stated that he first learned of the existence of Mrs. Clinton’s server from news media reports. There is little wonder why Obama has refused to condemn FBI director James Comey for re-launching his probe of the Clinton emails, based on the discovery of the additional traffic on Weiner’s laptop. Presidents who dug themselves deep into scandals by lying about «what they knew and when they knew it» helped sink the administration of Richard Nixon and almost cost Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton their presidencies. Obama was wise not to interfere in the FBI’s many criminal cases now building up like a tidal wave against Mrs. Clinton. The many Clinton scandals also involve the illegal shipment of U.S.- and foreign-manufactured weapons to jihadist rebels in Libya and Syria against U.S. law. When Clinton and Abedin oversaw the jihadist rebellions in both countries, the U.S. was subject to imposing a United Nations arms embargo directed against both civil war theaters. The sudden decision on October 5, 2016, by the Justice Department to drop all charges against the State Department-licensed Turi Defense Group of Arizona and its owner, Marc Turi, for violating U.S. law by shipping unregistered weapons to Libyan rebels, some of which were transferred to Syrian rebels by the CIA station in Benghazi, indicates that Attorney General Loretta Lynch wanted the Turi case to disappear before the November 8th election. The federal trial of Turi and his company was due to begin on November 8th. The indictment of Turi was brought in the U.S. Court for the District of Arizona in Phoenix. Phoenix's Sky Harbor International Airport was the scene of an impromptu and highly-questionable tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lynch on June 27, 2016. Turi claims that approval for the secret weapons shipments to Libya and onward to Syria were personally approved by Mrs. Clinton and had a green light from the CIA. Any new email or other evidence that Mrs. Clinton authorized illegal weapons shipments to jihadist terrorists would have required the FBI to broaden its investigation of both Hillary and Bill Clinton, as well as Lynch. Mrs. Clinton may have violated federal law by permitting the shipment of weapons to belligerent parties in Libya and Syria; Mr. Clinton may have obstructed justice in talking to the Attorney General; and Lynch may have violated her oath of office in misusing her position as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer in furtherance of a criminal conspiracy to obstruct justice. The Clinton scandal, in many ways, resembles the Iran-Contra episode more than it does Watergate. In Watergate, the cover-up by Nixon and his cronies, in many respects, was worse than the original crimes. In Iran-Contra, the arms and drugs smuggling crimes were equal to the cover-up, including the criminal role of then-Vice President George H. W. Bush in the entire affair. With the Clintons’ «E-mailgate», shipping U.S. weapons to terrorists and accepting foreign campaign donations from dodgy regimes in Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Qatar are every bit as bad as the obvious ensuing cover-up by Hillary Clinton and her and her husband's cronies. If these many cases are what the FBI and its offices in Washington, New York, Little Rock, Los Angeles, Miami, and possibly Phoenix, are now looking at, the FBI director had every right and a constitutional responsibility to inform Congress and the voting public. And FBI director Comey has every right not to tip off to the Clinton gang what he and the bureau may have on them, evidence demanded now by Mrs. Clinton and her supporters. This evidence may become material to the impeachment of Mrs. Clinton from the office of president of the United States should she be elected on November 8th.

Latest WikiLeaks Dump Includes Full List Of Fees From Clinton Global Initiative Donors

The latest WikiLeaks dump from this morning includes a very detailed list of 2012/2013 donors to the Clinton Global Initiative.  Like the donors to the Clinton Foundation (which we reviewed here), the list is a who's who of wall street banks, giant energy corporations, chemical conglomerates and multi-national pharmas...you know, all the "shady" corporations that you've been told were in bed with the Republicans.   Of course, we're sure that Pfizer will be interested to learn of the following email from Neera Tanden in which she and John Podesta plot over how to attack the "drug companies" in order to rally enthusiasm  among Hillary's base....such a noble cause.  According to Neera, Hillary "hates (or at least used to hate) the drug companies."  Of course, we sympathize with Neera, it is difficult to keep up with Hillary's constantly changing views on public policy (aka: her donor list).   Of course, as we learned previously, Dow Chemical was also "spreading their wealth around" to all of the Clinton organizations.  For those not as familiar with the history between Dow Chemical and the Clintons, here is a refresher from our previous post: The donations from Dow Chemical are particularly notable for several reasons.  First, because of other emails revealed by WikiLeaks and other FOIA requests, we now know that Dow Chemical CEO, Andrew Liveris, was granted special access to then Secretary Clinton back in July 2009 at the same time he was embroiled in ongoing litigation with another Clinton Foundation donor, Kuwait, over a failed joint-venture that would have netted Dow $9BN in cash.  As Band notes in his memo, 1 month after being granted special access to Secretary Clinton, Liveris invited President Clinton and Band out for a day of golf.  Moreover, shortly after his meeting with Secretary Clinton and golf outing with President Clinton, Liveris decided to donate $500,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative...very convenient timing for all involved.   In August of 2009, Mr. Kelly invited Mr. Liveris to play golf with President Clinton and me.   Mr. Kelly subsequently asked Dow to become a CGI sponsor at the $500,000 level, which they did, as well as making a $150,000 donation to the Foundation for President Clinton to attend a Dow dinner in Davos.   The story gets even more bizarre when Band reveals in the following footnote that Liveris provided the Dow Chemical plane to fly President Clinton and his staff from New York to California and then California to North Korea for their golf outing.  We would assume this is a simple typo by Band and/or he's just geographically challenged...if not, this certainly raises a whole other set of questions for Bill.   Mr. Liveris provided the Dow plane to fly President Clinton and his staff to and from California for our trip to, and from, North Korea.  As a private trip, the Foundation had to pay the costs of airfare; Mr. Liveris’ in kind contribution saved the Foundation in excess of $100,000.   According to the Dialy Caller, Dow Chemical paid Teneo $2.8 million in 2011 and $16 million in 2012 for a variety of "consultancy services".  Of course, Bill Clinton was an honorary chairman of Teneo and, as such, was set to be paid $3.5 million for that position even though he ultimately only kept $100,000 because of the scandals that erupted around the firm, including their advisory relationship with MF Global.   And a little extra money for CGI University as well.   And that's how "public servants" get wealthy off their $150,000 salaries.

Leaked Memo Exposes Shady Dealings Between Clinton Foundation Donors And Bill's "For-Profit" Activities

We have written frequently in recent weeks about a feud that erupted between Chelsea Clinton and Doug Band back in 2011 after Chelsea raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest between Band's firm, Teneo, the Clinton Foundation and the State Department (see here, here, here and here).  The feud ultimately resulted in Band being forced to draft a memo spelling out, in vivid detail, the many entangled relationships between himself, Teneo, the Clinton Foundation and the State Department.  Fortunately, today's Wikileaks dump included that memo which reveals, for the first time, the precise financial flows between the Clinton Foundation, Band’s firm Teneo Consulting, and the Clinton family’s private business endeavors. The memo starts with a brief background on Teneo, which was created in June 2011, shortly after Declan Kelly resigned from his position as "United States Economic Envoy to Northern Ireland," a position to which he was appointed by Secretary Clinton. In June 2009, DK Consulting was founded by Declan Kelley.   Mr. Kelly served as COO of FTI Consulting until June 2009, when he stepped down and established DK Consulting.  At that time, he also became the United States Economic Envoy to Northern Ireland.  Pursuant to the terms of his exit agreement with FTI and consistent with the ethics agreement of his uncompensated special government employee appointment at the State Department, Mr. Kelly retained and continued to provide services to three paying clients (Coke, Dow, and UBS) and one pro bono client (Allstate).  In late 2009, Declan retained me as a consultant to DK Consulting to help support the needs of these clients.   In May 2011, Mr. Kelly resigned his Envoy position at the State Department.  In June 2011, Mr. Kelly and I founded Teneo Strategies; simultaneously, Mr. Kelly closed DK Consulting and shifted its clients to Teneo.   Throughout the past almost 11 years since President Clinton left office, I have sought to leverage my activities, including my partner role at Teneo, to support and to raise funds for the Foundation. This memorandum strives to set forth how I have endeavored to support the Clinton Foundation and President Clinton personally. In a subsequent section of the memo entitled "Leveraging Teneo For The Foundation," Band spells all of the donations he solicited from Teneo "clients" for the Clinton Foundation.  In all, there are roughly $14mm of donations listed with the largest contributors being Coca-Cola, Barclays, The Rockefeller Foundation and Laureate International Universities.    The donations from Dow Chemical are particularly notable for several reasons.  First, because of other emails revealed by WikiLeaks and other FOIA requests, we now know that Dow Chemical CEO, Andrew Liveris, was granted special access to then Secretary Clinton back in July 2009 at the same time he was embroiled in ongoing litigation with another Clinton Foundation donor, Kuwait, over a failed joint-venture that would have netted Dow $9BN in cash.  As Band notes in his memo, 1 month after being granted special access to Secretary Clinton, Liveris invited President Clinton and Band out for a day of golf.  Moreover, shortly after his meeting with Secretary Clinton and golf outing with President Clinton, Liveris decided to donate $500,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative...very convenient timing for all involved. In August of 2009, Mr. Kelly invited Mr. Liveris to play golf with President Clinton and me.   Mr. Kelly subsequently asked Dow to become a CGI sponsor at the $500,000 level, which they did, as well as making a $150,000 donation to the Foundation for President Clinton to attend a Dow dinner in Davos. The story gets even more bizarre when Band reveals in the following footnote that Liveris provided the Dow Chemical plane to fly President Clinton and his staff from New York to California and then California to North Korea for their golf outing.  We would assume this is a simple typo by Band and/or he's just geographically challenged...if not, this certainly raises a whole other set of questions for Bill. Mr. Liveris provided the Dow plane to fly President Clinton and his staff to and from California for our trip to, and from, North Korea.  As a private trip, the Foundation had to pay the costs of airfare; Mr. Liveris’ in kind contribution saved the Foundation in excess of $100,000. According to the Dialy Caller, Dow Chemical paid Teneo $2.8 million in 2011 and $16 million in 2012 for a variety of "consultancy services".  Of course, Bill Clinton was an honorary chairman of Teneo and, as such, was set to be paid $3.5 million for that position even though he ultimately only kept $100,000 because of the scandals that erupted around the firm, including their advisory relationship with MF Global. Finally, Band also offers the following commentary on the "$50 million in for-profit activity" he was able to secure for Bill Clinton (as of November 2011) as well as the "$66 million in future contracts, should he choose to continue with those engagements." Independent of our fundraising and decision-making activities on behalf of the Foundation, we have dedicated ourselves to helping the President secure and engage in for-profit activities – including speeches, books, and advisory service engagements.  In that context, we have in effect served as agents, lawyers, managers and implementers to secure speaking, business and advisory service deals.  In support of the President’s for-profit activity, 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.  Neither Justin nor I are separately compensated for these activities (e.g., we do not receive a fee for, or percentage  of, the more than $50 million in for-profit activity we have personally helped to secure for President Clinton to date or the $66 million in future contracts, should he choose to continue with those engagements).   With respect to business deals for his advisory services, Justin and I found, developed and brought to President Clinton multiple arrangements for him to accept or reject. Of his current 4 arrangements, we secured all of them; and, we have helped manage and maintain all of his for-profit business relationships.  Since 2001, President Clinton’s business arrangements have yielded more than $30 million for him personally, with $66 million to be paid out over the next nine years should he choose to continue with the current engagements. A big part of those "for-profit" activities was a $3.5mm annual payment from Laureate... ...and millions in speaking fees arranged by Band.   Confused? Here is a simpler recap from the NYT's Nick Confessore: This Doug Band memo, in the latest Podesta dump, is the Rosetta stone of the Teneo-Clinton Foundation complex. https://t.co/a1g3nSoGPM — Nick Halloween (@nickconfessore) October 26, 2016 Band's argument: I am not get fully compensated for all of the stuff I do for Clintonworld, so you should let me do Teneo. Everyone wins. — Nick Halloween (@nickconfessore) October 26, 2016 Now, you could argue: So what? If Band gets his clients to pop over money to a charity, why is that bad? — Nick Halloween (@nickconfessore) October 26, 2016 But consider that Band was selling his clients on idea that giving to foundation was, in essence, a way to bolster their influence. — Nick Halloween (@nickconfessore) October 26, 2016 Clinton & Band built a platform for executives to bolster their companies' images, bathe in BC's praise, and do some good, while... — Nick Halloween (@nickconfessore) October 26, 2016 ...Teneo extracted earnings for Band and, depending on what you see in these e-mails, Clinton himself. Teneo paid Clinton until late '11. — Nick Halloween (@nickconfessore) October 26, 2016 I guess you can wave it all off as a nothingburger. But Chelsea Clinton and some of Clinton's other aides were clearly freaking out. — Nick Halloween (@nickconfessore) October 26, 2016 Generally, the emails show Clinton's *own closest aides* troubled or horrified by things that her surrogates have spent years waving off. — Nick Halloween (@nickconfessore) October 26, 2016   With that, we look forward to Donna Brazile's explanation of how this is all just an attempt to "criminalize behavior that is normal."   The full memo can be viewed here:

Another Day, Another Doug Band Meltdown Over The Clinton Foundation "Conflict Of Interest Policy"

Each new WikiLeaks dump of Podesta emails includes at least one gem from Clinton aide Doug Band who seemingly came under internal attack at the Clinton Foundation for his "conflicts of interest."  The constant attacks, initiated by Chelsea Clinton, clearly put him on the defensive which caused him to lash out on numerous occasions, over email, like a cornered pitbull.  Fortunately, today's WikiLeaks release was no exception and includes the following email in which Band laments about having to sign a "conflict of interest" agreement while Bill Clinton, despite his many conflicts, did not. Oddly, wjc does not have to sign such a document even though he is personally paid by 3 cgi sponsors, gets many expensive gifts from them, some that are at home etc   I could add 500 different examples of things like this and while I removed lasry bc they are all on the offense, I get the sense that they are trying to put some sort of wrong doing on me after the audit as a crutch to change things and if I don't mention things like lasry where they all have issues, I may regret it   Of course, this is the just the latest email in a series of gems authored by Doug Band which started when Chelsea raised concerns over potential conflicts of interest related to Band's firm, Teneo, which she thought had sought favors from the State Department on behalf of clients, including MF Global. Below is a recap of some of the past exchanges. * * * With each new WikiLeaks dump, the rabbit hole in the feud between Chelsea Clinton and Doug Band seems to grow a little deeper.  The most recent disclosures included a November 11, 2011 email from Chelsea to John Podesta, Cheryl Mills and the Clinton Foundation lawyers at Simpson Thacher in which Chelsea clearly lists out her issues with Clinton aides Doug Band, Justin Cooper and someone referred to only as "Hannah," which is presumably Hannah Deletto, Director of Membership at the Clinton Foundation.  Among other things, the email alleges that Justin Cooper installed spyware on Bill Clinton's computer in order to monitor his email traffic, that both Justin Cooper and Hannah Deletto stole "significant sums of money" from the Clintons and that Doug Band / Teneo "hustled business at CGI." Chelsea's list of complaints from her email: - today that Doug reached out to someone at Harry Walker (who represents my father on all speaking arrangements), to ask for a full list of all his speeches, how much he was paid for each speech, and told the contact person at Harry Walker that all speeches should now go through him, not Terry Krinivic (the scheduler)   - that Ilya physically saw/caught Justin a couple of days ago reading his bberry and loading the same spyware onto his computer that he loaded onto Bari's computer   - a secret service agent told Marc (my husband) that Justin had asked another secret service agent to lie about the parking pass absurdity [we can talk about this really ridiculous anecdote offline]   - multiple people shared with me how upset they were at hearing how Justin referred to my father in the last week - in very derogatory ways widely sadly   - Oscar told my father he knows Justin reads his emails   - my father was told today of explicit examples at CGI of Doug/ Teneo pushing for - and receiving - free memberships - and of multiple examples of Teneo 'hustling' business at CGI - and of people now having quit at CGI   - that Doug told Jon Davidson he was never going to forgive him for not reporting that Dad met with John (ie you John) on Sunday and that how could Jon forget who he really worked for   - Doug told Terry Krinivic she would never work again in this town if she didn't back him up on everything   - Ilya believes Hannah and Justin have taken significant sums of money from my parents personally - some in expenses - cars, etc. - and others directly * * * As we pointed out yesterday, long-time Clinton aide Doug Band had a bad habit of being brutally honest over email...particularly when it came to his feelings regarding "spoiled brat" Chelsea Clinton.  The following example comes from January 2012 when Band forwards a complimentary email from Chelsea (aka "Diane Reynolds") essentially calling her a two-faced backstabber. She sends me one of these types of emails every few days/week   As they say, the apple doesn't fall far   A kiss on the cheek while she is sticking a knife in the back, and front While it's unclear exactly which parent Band is referencing with his "the apple doesn't fall far" reference, we have our suspicions.   Of course, this wasn't the first time Band intimated his true feelings about Chelsea to Podesta.  Just a couple of months earlier, in November 2011, Band sent the following email after Chelsea expressed her views that Band's firm, Teneo, created potential conflicts of interest in going to State Department officials to seek assistance for clients, including MF Global.  "She is acting like a spoiled brat kid who has nothing else to do but create issues to justify what she's doing because she, as she has said, hasn't found her way and has a lack of focus in her life. I realize she will be off of this soon but if it doesn't come soon enough...."     After that, the situation escalated to the point that Band sent the following email two days later saying that Chelsea had pushed Clinton Foundation COO, Laura Graham, to the brink of suicide.  Within the email Band describes an encounter in which he received a "late night" call from Graham who 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."   Seems the real life Clinton drama is every bit as entertaining as their hit HBO series "House of Cards."

Clinton Foundation Insider Makes Stunning Admission: "Bill Is Far More Conflicted Every Single Day"

For several days now we have been posting about the tensions between Doug Band and Chelsea Clinton (see here, here and here). The whole dispute between the two seemingly started when Chelsea raised concerns over potential conflicts of interest related to Band's firm, Teneo, which she thought had sought favors from the State Department on behalf of clients, including MF Global. But, in the latest batch of WikiLeaks emails, Band escalates the situation to a whole new level by rattling off a litany of other Clinton Foundation conflicts including with Bill Clinton who he says is "far more conflicted every single day in what he does" than Teneo.   Justin Cooper then decides to pile on by also highlighting Bill's many conflicts.  Per the email below, Cooper expresses frustration that nothing in the proposed conflicts resolution memo addresses "how wjc's activities interface with each other or how this structure resolves his own conflicts."   Meanwhile, in another email sent just a few days later, Band points out that he negotiated a speaking deal with UBS in which Bill Clinton was paid $150,000 for 6 speeches to be given between 2011 and 2012.  The more interesting part though is that Band says he "could care less if he does them or not"...of course not, because the speeches aren't really the point now are they?   The next exchange between Robby Mook, John Podesta and Huma Abedin shows just how much disconnect there is between campaign trail rhetoric and real life.  The emails below, highlight just how far Hillary is willing to go to cater to her large wall street donors while pretending to be fighting for "main street."  The exchange starts when Clinton campaign manager, Robby Mook, highlights that Bill's March 15, 2015 speech to Morgan Stanley may be delayed...a delay that Mook would prefer because it corresponds with Hillary's first day of campaigning in Iowa which Mook argues is just "begging for a bad rollout." But apparently Hillary was more in favor of collecting the speaking fees, as Huma shoots back that "HRC very strongly did not want him to cancel that particular speech."   The chain continues on as "HRC reiterates her original position" that Bill should move forward with the Morgan Stanley speech despite the potential political consequences in Iowa.  We guess that clears up any doubts on where her true loyalties lie.   Finally, if there was any doubt left in your mind that the Clinton's are fighting for the little guy, then it will be promptly eliminated after reading this next email exchange in which two Clinton staffers ponder why Bill refuses to have dinner with small donors.  As Teddy Geoff points out: "i don't understand why the optics of hobnobbing with the rich and powerful are somehow better than the optics of sitting down with a few $5 donors. it seems like the latter is what we ought to be emphasizing, not running away from." But, as pointed out below, the Clinton Foundation has "always been careful about protecting his brand."  We guess they're concerned about speaking fees dropping to $45,000 per hour vs. $50,000 per hour if Bill happens to be seen in public with a minimum wage worker?

Clinton Aide Doug Band Goes Off On "Backstabbing" Chelsea - "Apple Doesn't Fall Far"

As we pointed out last week, long-time Clinton aide Doug Band had a bad habit of being brutally honest over email...particularly when it came to his feelings regarding "spoiled brat" Chelsea Clinton.  The following example comes from January 2012 when Band forwards a complimentary email from Chelsea (aka "Diane Reynolds") essentially calling her a two-faced backstabber. She sends me one of these types of emails every few days/week   As they say, the apple doesn't fall far   A kiss on the cheek while she is sticking a knife in the back, and front While it's unclear exactly which parent Band is referencing with his "the apple doesn't fall far" reference, we have our suspicions.   Of course, this wasn't the first time Band intimated his true feelings about Chelsea to Podesta.  Just a couple of months earlier, in November 2011, Band sent the following email after Chelsea expressed her views that Band's firm, Teneo, created potential conflicts of interest in going to State Department officials to seek assistance for clients, including MF Global.  "She is acting like a spoiled brat kid who has nothing else to do but create issues to justify what she's doing because she, as she has said, hasn't found her way and has a lack of focus in her life. I realize she will be off of this soon but if it doesn't come soon enough...."     After that, the situation escalated to the point that Band sent the following email two days later saying that Chelsea had pushed Clinton Foundation COO, Laura Graham, to the brink of suicide.  Within the email Band describes an encounter in which he received a "late night" call from Graham who 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."   If he hasn't already, now might be a really good time for Doug Band to disappear into a remote village deep in the Amazon for a while.

Podesta Email Reveals "Spoiled Brat" Chelsea Almost Caused Suicide Of Foundation COO

Newly released "Podesta Emails" published by WikiLeaks reveal that Chelsea Clinton was extremely worried about potential conflicts of interest between the Clinton Foundation, State Department and Teneo, a consulting firm that was founded by former aides to Bill and Hillary Clinton.  Per The Washington Examiner, Teneo, founded by Doug Band and Declan Kelly, drew a lot of scrutiny for its decision to employ Huma Abedin during the final months of Hillary Clinton's State Department tenure.  Chelsea apparently thought the firm created potential conflicts of interest when Abedin and Band went to State Department officials to seek assistance for Teneo's clients, including MF Global.  The situation escalated to the point that Doug Band sent the following email to John Podesta in November 2011 as he was "worried that if this story gets out, we are screwed."  Among other things, Band had the following to say about Chelsea: "She is acting like a spoiled brat kid who has nothing else to do but create issues to justify what she's doing because she, as she has said, hasn't found her way and has a lack of focus in her life. I realize she will be off of this soon but if it doesn't come soon enough...."     Less than a month later, Chelsea wrote to Podesta raising concerns over Teneo leveraging their relationship with Bill Clinton to pull strings on behalf of their client, Dow Chemical, run by CEO Andrew Liveris.  Interestingly, this is the same Andrew Liveris that Bill Clinton pushed Hillary to meet with back in 2009 just as Dow was engaged in a legal battle with Kuwait over a failed joint venture (see "Did Foundation Donor Dow Chemical Seek Hillary "Favor" To Settle $9 Billion Lawsuit With Kuwait?" and "New Hillary Emails Expose Bill Pushing Meetings With Foundation Donors, Requests For 'Diplomatic Passports'").   After that, the situation escalated to the point that Band sent the following email two days later saying that Chelsea had pushed Clinton Foundation COO, Laura Graham, to the brink of suicide.  Within the email Band describes an encounter in which he received a "late night" call from Graham who 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."   Luckily Graham was able to avoid Vince Foster's fate...though just narrowly it seems.

As Day In Court Looms, Corzine Tries To Settle MF Global Fraud For Just $5 Million

Five years after MF Global's collapse after big, levered bets on European bonds blew up leaving a $1.6 billion shortfall in customer funds, WSJ reports former New Jersey Gov. and Goldman Sachs CEO Jon Corzine is nearing a deal to pay $5 million to end a U.S. regulator’s lawsuit. Ending what The Wall Street Journal calls a long and messy chapter in a four-decade career which touched the pinnacles of Wall Street and politics... Mr. Corzine reached the tentative settlement with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission in June, submitting to a ban from trading client money in commodities and others assets regulated by the commission, the people said. A final deal has been on hold as the commission negotiates a resolution to its case against another former executive at MF Global, the people said. The terms may still shift ahead of a final deal, several people said.   Mr. Corzine has denied wrongdoing and said he never directed anyone to dip into customer funds.   Criminal prosecutors investigated the roles Mr. Corzine and other executives played in the shortfalls, but brought no charges. A federal judge approved a $132 million settlement between former MF Global executives, including Mr. Corzine, and the firm’s customers earlier this month, resolving most of the legal headaches stemming from MF Global. Only the CFTC case remained unresolved.   The CFTC sued Mr. Corzine and a top lieutenant in 2013 in a civil case and accused them of overseeing the misuse of nearly $1 billion in customer funds. In the lawsuit, regulators said Mr. Corzine “bears responsibility” for the New York firm’s unlawful actions and said the two violated the Commodity Exchange Act, which requires brokers to segregate customer funds. The CFTC case against Mr. Corzine and MF Global’s treasurer, Edith O’Brien, had been scheduled to go to trial next month, but that date was canceled as both former executives worked to reach a deal with the agency, according to court records. It's good to have friends. Mr. Corzine’s agreement was presented to the three-member commission in June, but was met with questions from both Democratic commissioner Sharon Bowen and Republican J. Christopher Giancarlo, according to people familiar with the discussions. At least one of the commissioners asked whether the deal sufficiently punished Mr. Corzine and whether his agreement was fair compared with a deal that Ms. O’Brien would receive, the people said. Finally, we note that, as of May, MF Global’s insurers had covered $97 million worth of legal defense costs for the company’s sued executives, court papers say. The earlier settlement relied on the remaining insurance coverage of $184 million, with some funds reserved for the CFTC action. As WSJ concludes, it is also unclear if Mr. Corzine can use insurance money to cover the CFTC penalty.

The Run Begins: Deutsche Bank Hedge Fund Clients Withdraw Excess Cash

Deutsche Bank concerns just went to '11' as Bloomberg reports a number of funds that clear derivatives trades with Deutsche Bank AG have withdrawn some excess cash and positions held at the lender, a sign of counterparties’ mounting concerns about doing business with Europe’s largest investment bank. While the vast majority of Deutsche Bank’s more than 200 derivatives-clearing clients have made no changes, some funds that use the bank’s prime brokerage service have moved part of their listed derivatives holdings to other firms this week, according to an internal bank document seen by Bloomberg News. Millennium Partners, Capula Investment Management and Rokos Capital Management are among about 10 hedge funds that have cut their exposure, said a person familiar with the situation who declined to be identified talking about confidential client matters.   The hedge funds use Deutsche Bank to clear their listed derivatives transactions because they are not members of clearinghouses. Millennium, Capula and Rokos declined to comment when contacted by phone or e-mail. Which explains why short-dated CDS is soaring.       “Our trading clients are amongst the world’s most sophisticated investors,” Michael Golden, a spokesman for Deutsche Bank, said in an e-mailed statement.   “We are confident that the vast majority of them have a full understanding of our stable financial position, the current macroeconomic environment, the litigation process in the U.S. and the progress we are making with our strategy.” Clients review their exposure to counterparties to avoid situations like the 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and MF Global’s 2011 bankruptcy when hedge funds had billions of dollars of assets frozen until the resolution of lengthy legal proceedings. As expected, Deutsche Bank stock in NY is sliding.   If the most sophisticated professionals in the world are withdrawing cash, why are German depositors leaving their life savings at risk... ahead of a long weekend in Germany (Monday is a bank holiday). *  *  * And for those believing that there is no contagion and this is all ring-fenced...   And US banks are sliding...   As a reminder, if the liquidity run forces DB to start unwinding or being forced to novate derivatives, it could get ugly.   Those who have cash parked at Deutsche Bank, and at last check there was about €566 billion, they may want to consider moving it for the time being to a safer bank.   * * * Earlier this morning, we reported that Europe is experiencing a sudden and acute dollar shortage, which we attributed to Deutsche Bank. It now appears this was accurate. Since Deutsche's recent highs, the short-end of the EUR-USD basis swap curve has collapsed: Simplifying - this chart measures the degree of USD shortage (willingness to spend money just to get USD now) across time - the lower the level, the more desperate for USDs. And no, it's not a quarter-end issue:   Still not sure... Then explain why European banks just increased their demand for USDs from The ECB's 7-day lending facility by over 2000%... As @Landonthomasjr notes, since 2009: DB shareholders put up 13.5 billion euros in equity. DB has paid 19.3 billion euro in bonuses. Perhaps they should have saved some of that cash eh? Simply put - trust in the European Banking system is faltering, counterparty risk hedging is accelerating:  And liquidity concerns are exploding, ahead of Germany's bank holiday on Monday.

Germany Warns People To ‘Stockpile’ Cash In Case Of ‘War’

The German government is warning its people to 'stockpile' food, water and cash in case of 'war'. For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government is set to tell citizens to stockpile food, water, medicine, fuel and cash in case of war, an attack, catastrophe or "national emergency", the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper reported on Sunday. Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande and Matteo Renzi on Aircraft Carrier Garibaldi yesterday. Photo: Guido Bergmann / DPA Angela Merkel's government is to "encourage the population" to have their own "personal supplies" including having some reserves of cash in their homes. People will also be urged to keep supplies of medicines, warm blankets, coal, wood, candles, torches, batteries and matches. Regarding the advice to own cash outside the banking system, Deutsche Welle pointed out that: "A wad of cash is another important part of any household's emergency supplies. There may not be time to rush to a bank, and ATMs won't work if the power is out." This is one of the primary reasons that one should own physical gold coins and bars outside the banking, financial and indeed the "technological system" and its dependence on electrical grids and supplies. Many of these systems are antiquated and vulnerable to attack such as from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) warfare that could quickly take out a large city or indeed a nation's electricity infrastructure and supplies. Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung  reported that the "Population should be able to protect themselves before government measures start to ensure an adequate supply of food, water, energy and cash." "The population will be obliged to hold an individual supply of food for ten days," the newspaper quoted the government's "Concept for Civil Defence" - which has been prepared by the Interior Ministry - as saying. According to information leaked to Frankfurter Allgemeine Sontagszeitung they include advice to citizens to stockpile enough food for ten days and clean drinking water for five days. “The population should be urged by appropriate means to keep two litres of drinking water per person per day,” the newspaper quoted a government paper as saying. The 69-page report does not see an attack on Germany's territory, which would require a conventional style of national defense, as likely. However, the precautionary measures demand that people "prepare appropriately for a development that could threaten our existence and cannot be categorically ruled out in the future," the paper cited the report as saying. The government is to increase stocks of smallpox vaccine and antibiotics in case of biological attack, and set up reserves of petrol and oil at 140 locations around Germany to ensure a supply for 90 days. Other provisions include setting up decontamination sites outside hospitals in case of nuclear, biological or chemical attack. German newspapers like Deutsche Welle have complied handy checklists such as What emergency supplies do you need? It is important to note that another global financial crisis and collapse of the global banking and financial system would also necessitate citizens being prepared. Deutsche Bank's share price has all the hallmarks of that of Lehman Brothers prior to Lehman's collapse. Political and financial complacency reigns today as it tends to do regarding geopolitical risk. The complacency of the world between 1900 and 1914 is the best example of this. There is little analysis of the potential impact of terrorism and war on the lives of citizens or indeed on their personal finances. Owning some gold coins and bars outside the banking and financial system will protect from these scenarios. As ever, it is prudent to hope for the best but be prepared for less benign scenarios.

Bank Of Ireland And RBS To Charge Negative Interest Rates To Depositors - Remember MF Global?

The varied impacts of the European interest rates cuts are beginning to work their way through the system. In two different currencies, and thus two different monetary regimes, we now have banks charging large depositors for holding their deposits. We thus have evidence of one contention - that the zero [...]

MF Global 5 Years Later: PWC Set To Take The Fall As Corzine Still Untouched

Jon Corzine, former Governor of New Jersey and CEO of Goldman Sachs, took over the helm of MF Global in March 2010.  When revenue at the bank failed to live up to expectations, Corzine developed a scheme to place a massive $6BN bet on the sovereign debt of the aptly named PIIGS (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, Spain) through a financial structure known as a "Repo to Maturity".  To summarize the strategy for all you aspiring CEO's, when you find it difficult to generate organic revenue growth sometimes the better option is to just bet your entire firm on a single, massively-levered trade on the sovereign debt of countries on the verge of insolvency.  Well, not so much.  Deterioration of the Eurozone economies in mid-2011 resulted in massive margin calls on Corzine's trade and a liquidity crisis at MF Global.  By the time the dust settled there was $1.6BN of cash "missing" from customer accounts which should have been segregated.  And with that, less than 2 years after Mr. Corzine took the CEO seat, MF Global filed for bankruptcy protection on October 31, 2011 in the Southern District of New York.  We know what you're thinking...sounds reckless to risk an entire firm on the highly volatile sovereign debt of a group of countries labeled the "PIIGS", right?  Well apparently it's not that big of a deal unless you're the scapegoat accountants. Yesterday, U.S. District Court Judge Victor Marrero of New York denied PwC’s motion for dismissal of a $1 billion professional malpractice suit filed by MF Global against the accounting firm saying that the administrator had "presented sufficient evidence to create a material factual dispute" as to whether advice from PwC ultimately played a role in the bankruptcy filing.  According to the WSJ: MF Global sued PwC in March 2014 for at least $1 billion, alleging that the firm’s accounting advice helped cause MF Global’s 2011 collapse. Officials in charge of MF Global’s liquidation claimed PwC gave “flatly erroneous” advice on how to account for the European sovereign debt that tipped MF Global into bankruptcy.   MF Global’s lawsuit against PwC claims the accounting firm’s advice is what allowed Mr. Corzine to make such a big bet in the first place, a charge PwC has denied.   In a 69-page decision, the judge said the administrator “has presented sufficient evidence to create a material factual dispute” as to whether PwC’s accounting advice played a role in MF Global’s bankruptcy in the fall of 2011.   “This is a major victory for the MF Global estate,” said Nader Tavakoli, MF Global’s lead director. “It sends a strong message concerning the need for responsibility and accountability, and we hope to secure a substantial recovery for MF Global’s stakeholders.”   Daniel Fetterman, a lawyer from Kasowitz Benson Torres & Friedman LLP who is representing MF Global, called the ruling a “significant victory” in the legal fight.   “We look forward to presenting at trial the evidence concerning PwC’s extraordinary and egregious malpractice alleged in the complaint and its role in causing MF Global’s demise,” he said. For its part, PwC has maintained that reckless trading decisions and "adverse market conditions" were the real cause of the bankruptcy filing, not faulty accounting of the trades. In response, James P. Cusick, PwC’s lawyer, said the accounting firm stands by its work for MF Global, and that the commodity broker correctly accounted for the so-called repo-to-maturity transactions at issue in the lawsuit.   “MF Global’s collapse was caused by its own business decisions and adverse market events, not any accounting determination” said Mr. Cusick, a litigator at King & Spalding. Lesson learned.  If you commit a murder it's the gun's fault, if you gain 20 lbs it's the fork's fault and if you place a massively levered trade that blows up your firm then it's the accountant's fault.  After all, it's not the losses of a failed trade that caused the liquidity crisis at MF Global but rather the timing of the realization of those losses that are truly to blame. As for Jon Corzine, last we heard he was trying to raise capital for a new hedge fund (one which may have trouble getting a primary dealer designation) and we are confident he will succeed for two reasons. Reason #1:   And Reason #2: * * * For those interested, the full decision can be read below:
