In another WikiLeaks email dump on Monday, it was revealed that a longtime aide to former President Bill Clinton had some very unkind things to say about his boss’s daughter.
In a 2011 email exchange between current Hillary Clinton presidential campaign chairman John Podesta and Bill Clinton assistant Doug Band regarding Band’s consulting firm Teneo, Band called Chelsea Clinton “a spoiled brat” who has a “lack of focus in her life.”
John, I would appreciate your feedback and any suggestions > > I’m also starting to worry that if this story gets out, we are screwed.

(For the record, Chelsea’s initials are CVC.)
Another Hillary Clinton aide, Cheryl Mills, was also included in the email exchange.
Band and his firm have come under fire of late as it relates to the Clinton Foundation and the State Department. Politico did an in-depth report on the ties between State, the foundation and Teneo back in August, with eight sources telling the publication that many of the firm’s clients received exposure to the Clintons while Hillary was in State.
