WikiLeaks Email: John Podesta says it’s an ‘understatement’ that Chelsea Clinton is ‘not smart’

According to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, it’s an “understatement” that Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, is “not smart.”

Podesta’s comments were revealed by WikiLeaks, which recently published a 2012 email conversation between Podesta and Clinton operative Doug Band.

Band wrote to Podesta in Jan. 2012 to complain about Chelsea, who he alleged told “one of the Bush 43 kids” about an internal financial investigation within the Clinton Foundation. That information then made its way to a Republican operative, Band said.

“I have heard more and more chatter of [Chelsea] and bari talking about lots of what is going on internally to people,” Band wrote. “Not smart.”

Podesta replied with just one sentence. He wrote back to Band:

“You are perfecting your skills for understatement.”

  1. Interesting. Chelsea also considers Ivanka trump to be one of her best friends.

  2. I think he means "Not Smart" in that 'She may bring us all crashing down'. THAT kind of not smart.

  3. He didn't say she was "not smart". He said this particular behavior was "not smart". The headline is just wrong.

    The truth is damaging enough. But trying to spin it as even worse, using a false headline, is simply deceptive, and plays right into the hands of Clinton operatives like Palmieri who want everyone to think the leaks are "probably" not true.
