    A consulting firm with close and controversial ties to the Clintons was recently sanctioned by the Financial Industry Regulatory Agency (FINRA) for failing to properly handle electronic communications, documents reviewed by The Daily Caller show. Teneo Securities was censured and forced to pay a $17,500 fine for the infraction, which was settled on Sept. 7. That’s according to a broker check report filed on the firm, which is a subsidiary of Teneo Holdings, a consulting firm founded by longtime Bill Clinton aide Doug Band and a former Hillary Clinton campaign financier named Declan Kelly. http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/07/exclusive-feds-sanction-teneo-firm-connected-to-the-clintons/

    A consulting firm with ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton is eyeing the possibility of an initial public offering, according to people familiar with the matter. Teneo Holdings, whose clients include chief executives of some of the world’s biggest companies, has benefited from its founders’ association with the Clintons. Douglas Band is a former top aide to Mr. Clinton who helped shape his postpresidential career and created the Clinton Global Initiative. Declan Kelly is a businessman whom Mrs. Clinton appointed U.S. Economic Envoy to Northern Ireland when she was secretary of state.http://www.wsj.com/articles/teneo-consulting-firm-with-clinton-ties-eyes-1-billion-ipo-1473771217

    Wikileaks was able to shed light on what top Bill Clinton aide Doug Band, who helped start the Clinton Foundation and went on to co-found his own consulting firm, Teneo, called Bill Clinton, Inc. The 13-page memo described how money could be obtained to go to both the Clinton Foundation and to the Clintons personally. That strategy centered on using the Foundation’s top tier donor base (Dow Chemical, Coca-Cola, etc.) to also forge paid speaking engagements and consulting deals. The amount that Bill could personally reap with this strategy could be as much as $66 million if everything remained in...

The Foundation has been under suspicion for more than a year for being a "pay to play" operation while Hillary was Secretary of State, in which governments and big wigs gave money to the Clinton's charity in exchange for access or favors from the State Department. One of the defenses mounted against such criticisms is that the Clinton's never personally benefitted from the Clinton Foundation. "They get no money from...
