That's according to a new batch of emails released by WikiLeaks, where emails dating back to 2012 show former Clinton staffer Doug Band accusing Mezvinsky of wanting to set up a fundraiser for the Clinton Foundation as an excuse to meet with investors for his hedge fund. That's because, according to a January 4, 2012-dated email from Clinton Foundation co-founder Doug Band, the foundation has been footing the bill-effectively as an illegal "slush fund" for the family. "I hope that you will speak to her and end this [.] Once we go down this road". According to new e-mails released by WikiLeaks, both Chelsea Clinton and her husband Mark Mezvinsky were leveraging the Clinton Foundation for personal gain. The Post reports he was complaining to Podesta about the former first daughter taking him to task over whether he was using his Clinton connections to further his consulting firm, where Bill Clinton was a paid adviser. At the time Band wrote them, Mezvinsky, who had been an investment banker at Goldman Sachs, was working with two partners to raise capital to launch a hedge fund of their own called Eaglevale Partners.
He said "the Bush kid then told someone else who told an operative within the Republican party".
Band's email is one of more than 50,000 leaked emails hacked from Podesta's Gmail account and released by WikiLeaks over the past month.

A rather large line was seen outside the absentee voting station in Independence Square, but voters said the line moved quickly. For instance, in 2014, Alameda County received only 5 percent of vote-by-mail ballots before Election Day.
While the FBI has concluded its investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails, the agency is reportedly still looking into The Clinton Foundation.
Written by longtime Bill Clinton assistant Doug Band, the November 12, 2011 memo lays out the complex relationship that Clintonworld had with Marc Lasry, a billionaire who then owned a majority of the debt for American Media Inc., which publishes the National Enquirer. Dough wrote in the email that Chelsea's chatter was "not smart".
Last week, the Clinton Foundation confirmed it accepted a $US1 million gift from Qatar while Hillary Clinton was U.S. secretary of state without informing the State Department, even though she had promised to let the agency review new donations from foreign governments.
