A close aide to Bill Clinton said he arranged for $50 million in payments for the former president, part of a complicated mingling of lucrative business deals and charity work of the Clinton Foundation mapped out in a memo released by WikiLeaks on Wednesday.
The report was written by Doug Band, who has transitioned from his job as a Clinton aide to a partner in Teneo Consulting, a firm whose client roster now includes some of the biggest companies in the world. Along the way, Band wrote, he also pushed his clients and contacts to donate millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, and to help win business deals for Bill Clinton.
Band wrote the memo in November 2011 to John Podesta, now chairman of the Hillary Clinton campaign, and sent copies to other key Clinton aides, apparently to explain and justify his work in the face of criticism from others in the Clinton orbit — notably Chelsea Clinton.
WikiLeaks has been releasing thousands of hacked emails from Podesta's account in recent weeks, revealing the rivalries and controversies roiling inside the Clinton family network as Hillary Clinton prepared to run for president.
Earlier that month, another hacked email shows, Chelsea Clinton had written Podesta, saying it was time to professionalize the foundation's operations and complaining that her father had heard of "multiple examples of Teneo 'hustling' business" at Clinton Global Initiative meetings.
In the memo, Band depicts himself as the indispensable linchpin of the Clinton family's finances even as he acknowledges that the arrangement is unusual: "We appreciate the unorthodox nature of our roles," Band wrote.
A spokesman for the Clinton campaign declined to comment; the campaign has refused to confirm whether the emails are authentic. Band did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In the November 2011 memo, Band lays out how he founded Teneo five months earlier with Declan Kelly, one of Hillary Clinton's top fundraisers during her 2008 presidential campaign. When Clinton became secretary of State, Kelly was named an envoy to Northern Ireland, holding the post even as he continued to represent several clients.
"Rightly or wrongly," Band said, because other fundraisers couldn't deliver, he and Kelly pushed their clients to donate to the foundation; he also lined up speaking and consulting deals for Bill Clinton. In some cases, it worked the other way, with Teneo winning consulting contracts from foundation donors.
One example, he said, was Laureate International University, the for-profit international school that donated more than $1.4 million to the Clinton Foundation and was paying Bill Clinton $3.5 million a year to serve as "honorary chancellor."
The company paid Clinton more than $17 million before the relationship ended last year, as Hillary Clinton was launching her presidential bid.
Band said handling the Laureate relationship was "very time-consuming," not to mention all the other tasks he handled for Bill Clinton.
"We have in effect served as agents, lawyers, managers and implementers," he said, hauling in $50 million in personal work for Clinton and lining up $66 million more. "Neither Justin nor I are separately compensated for these activities," he wrote, referring to Justin Cooper, another Clinton aide who had joined him in Teneo.
The disputes continued through that year, emails show, with Band carping about Chelsea Clinton's involvement — at one point he called her a "spoiled brat" — and pushing back against proposals to separate the foundation's activities from business dealings. Band finally resigned from the foundation last year.
Bags will continue to fly free at Southwest Airlines. For now.
Under pressure to generate more revenues, the chief executive of the Dallas-based carrier rejected suggestions that the airline start charging customers to check luggage, even though bag fees have generated billions of dollars for other airlines.
The nation's top 13 airlines collected $3.8 billion in bag fees during 2015, plus another $3 billion in charges paid by passengers who change or cancel reservations, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation
Southwest is the only major airline in the United States that doesn't charge passengers to check their first two bags or to change flight reservations.
During a quarterly earnings conference call with analysts this week, Southwest Chief Executive Gary Kelly said he won't consider instituting such fees, as some industry analysts have urged.
"We have a unique and beloved position in the industry with this approach and we would be foolish to squander it, so no thought whatsoever on charging bags," Kelly said.
Southwest's net income declined to $388 million in the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $584 million in the year-earlier period. Kelly blamed part of the decline on a technology outage in July.
Kelly said the airline is considering other money-making ideas. When asked to elaborate, he declined.
"Well, it's just not ready for prime time," he said of his plan. "And I'd rather not share with our competitors where we see opportunities for a variety of reasons."
And, unsurprisingly, not everyone was happy Thursday when owners of Apple's new iPhones realized they won't be able to charge them using the latest MacBook Pro models without using a different adapter.
The revelation came as the tech giant unveiled new MacBook Pro laptops featuring a touch-sensitive bar atop the keyboard. But it was the USB ports — or lack thereof — that were the center of attention for some users.
The iPhone 7 will no longer plug directly into Apple's premier laptops because the smartphone comes with a Lightning cable that fits into a standard USB port. The new laptops use different USB-C ports — and they don't ship with cords that match an iPhone.
To make them compatible, Apple customers will have to buy a $19 adapter, more commonly known in the tech world as a "dongle." Or they could buy a $25 charger cable that directly connects the USB-C port to their phone.
The future's tangle of cords and dongles elicited some heated tweets from users.
Apple is known for its proprietary cords and it's willingness to frequently change them.
This latest shift is part of Apple's move toward a wireless future — meaning the company may be hoping that customers don't wind up using dongles.
"Going forward, wireless will be the more convenient thing," said Werner Goertz, research director of personal technologies at research firm Gartner. "It offers all the bandwidth things need to communicate with each other."
Apple wants iPhone users to rely on iCloud, its data storage service, to transfer files between devices, leaving the cord only for charging.
On its laptops, the smaller size of the USB-C port — which is becoming more common in personal devices — helps keeps the device slim.
"I would say that's very much a part of Apple's DNA — 'ever thinner,' and sometimes that means making sacrifices," said Tom Mainelli, vice president for devices at market research firm IDC.
But, if you're someone who likes to plug in your devices to your laptop, "you're going to use a lot of dongles to get your stuff plugged in," he said.
And if you want those dongles, you're going to have to pay for them.
While the cords are much less expensive than the company's laptops, forcing customers to buy them could provide a bit of extra revenue as its computer line faces increased competition.
In its fourth quarter report released this month, Apple said many of its rivals have broader product lines and cheaper prices, meaning the Mac has to "maintain its functional and design advantages."
Apple sold about 18.4 million Mac computers in 2016, compared to about 20.5 million in 2015.
