Interfaith Ceremony: Chelsea Clinton married Marc Mezvinsky in 2010 in Rhinebeck, New York.

Hacked Emails Ask If Foundation Paid for Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding to Jewish Husband

New hacked emails reportedly question whether Clinton Foundation cash may have funded Chelsea Clinton’s wedding to Jewish husband Marc Mezvinsky.

The emails from a former Bill Clinton aide to current Hillary Clinton campaign chief John Podesta asked whether Chelsea Clinton was a potential loose cannon who could dama

There are no details about how the foundation might have funded the 2010 wedding, which is one of the more prominent interfaith unions in recent Jewish history, or who might be probing it.

Band’s message is included in a chain of emails that were hacked from Podesta’s email account. WikiLeaks has released more than 50,000 of the stolen emails over the past month.

He also complained in other emails that Chelsea Clinton had divulged potentially damaging information to an unnamed member of the Bush family.

The new emails have no connection to the investigation into whether Hillary Clinton improperly used a private server for her emails during her time as secretary of state.

FBI chief James Comey rocked the presidential race 10 days ago when he announced that he was examining thousands more emails uncovered in yet another separate probe of disgraced ex-congressman Anthony Weiner. Comey conceded Sunday that the new trove did not affect his decision that there was nothing criminal in Clinton’s actions.
