On Saturday Former president Bill Clinton raged on Twitter denying a report that claimed Chelsea Clinton’s lavish wedding was paid for by Clinton Foundation donations.
“No Clinton Foundation funds—dedicated to Haiti or otherwise—were used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc.”

Which ignited a Twitter war with James woods, where the actor’s truth bombs came crashing down on Clinton.
The balls on this guy! You looted Haiti like a peg-legged pirate. You, your crooked wife, and your cheesy slush fund “foundation” worked in concert to turn it into the shithole it has become. #BagmanBill #ClintonFoundation #Haiti https://t.co/kPRxesS72C

And prompted Wikileaks to unleash an attack of their own.
Wikileaks rebuked Clinton’s denial by posting a tweet reminding the world that in fact, they do have email proof that the Clinton’s did use Haiti relief donations to pay for Chelsea’s wedding.
Bill Clinton claims that no Clinton Foundation "funds" were used to pay for Chelsea Clinton's wedding. However, the leaked email from then top Bill Clinton aide Doug Band doesn't say "funds" it says "resources": https://t.co/hHY9OUwry3 https://t.co/mU2xJhASnL

The tweet linked to an email released by Wikileaks back in 2016.
In the email, former top aide Doug band talks about Chelsea Clinton taking “resources” from the Clinton Foundation to pay for her wedding.

Whether the Clinton’s want to admit it or not the proof is right there on the page, so their denial of the truth, sounds more like anger over being caught red-handed.
Social media users couldn’t agree more:

About $10million, I believe. Can’t get much lower than stealing from poor Haitians to but extravagant wedding dress.

The Foundation has done wonderful work helping alleviate hunger at weddings.

Does ANYONE really believe this is the WORST Chelsea has done? Come on…she learned from two of the best criminals, theives, liars, traitors and murderers on the planet. She has been groomed to become the definitive criminal…
