Anyone For Teneo?



Teneo is a company co-founded by New York-based Irish PR consultant Declan Kelly (top with Bill Clinton in 2011) and currently embroiled in the ongoing Wikleaks dump.

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning, hosts  Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski unpicked the latest leaked memo from Mr Kelly’s Teneo co-founder Doug Band revealing the “intersection” of the Clinton’s charitable and personal income.

Writing in 2011, Mr Band said Teneo partners had raised “in excess of $8 million for the foundation and $3 million” in paid speaking fees for Bill Clinton and secured contracts for the former president “that would pay out $66 million over the subsequent nine years”.

Good times.

    He still does, only now it’s part of the warm-up for his new gig as a ‘rode hard’ Barry Gibb in local tribute act The Brizzle Gees.

      The hilarious thing (I could have made a pun there, but none of us need that) is that none of this is affecting Clinton’s campaign. She’s going to be president, and since all this info is already in the light, it’ll just be brushed off as old news if anyone tries to use it to impeach her. Essentially, Bodger is unwittingly guaranteeing a long and conviction free reign.

        True. If the dirt won’t stick during an election campaign then there isn’t much chance of it sticking after.

          no,Trump is such a bad candidate that it’s a walkover but as soon as H is elected massive buyers remorse will set in and her term will be a scandal fest.shes a one termer at best (health permitting) unless she starts a war.

    Is the AIF Kellys bi**h?

    “The American Ireland Fund (AIF) – Total Giving: $350,000
    2010: $250,000 year total – for the Operating Fund
    2011: $100,000 year total – for the Operating Fund

    Mr. Kelly is a trustee of AIF; he has urged and ensured that the AIF is a significant donor to the Foundation. Mr. Kelly has successfully secured $350,000 to date. Mr. Kelly also will continue giving in the coming years as well through the AIF.”

      he’s also alan kelly’s brother. teneo make their few bob asset stripping, i mean efficiency consultants to former public utilities like water companies in the US.

    I’m still not seeing anything illegal or immoral with the Clinton Foundation. There is no smoking gun no matter how much innuendo is out there. It still gave millions to worthy causes.

    How much good has the Trump Foundation done??

    1. Captain freegear

      Like Bills bank account when he was broke and needed to launder cash without paying tax. Easiest way to avoid paying tax, start a charity or better still, start a religion

    It was in Senate hearings a few Months back on IT ? I think , only a few sentences but enough for a taste of what could be made of it in Ireland !! which none followed ! Ta Broadsheet for leads !!

    It doesn’t make sense for the American Ireland Fund to give money to the Clinton Foundation.

    This is the AIF mission statement:

    “Our mission is to be the largest network of friends of Ireland dedicated to supporting programs of peace and reconciliation, arts and culture, education and community development throughout the island of Ireland.”

    The Clinton Foundation doesn’t operate in Ireland.

    when was the AIF hijacked by Kelly and become a front for his business interests?

    “UBS – Total Giving: $540,000 (since 2005)
    2005: $25,000 year total – for Katrina
    2006: $15,000 year total – for CGI membership
    2007: $90,000 year total – for CGI membership
    2008: $20,000 year total – for CGI membership
    2010: $20,000 year total – for CGI membership
    2011: $370,000 year total – $20,000 for CGI membership; $350,000 for Clinton Economic Opportunity

    Bob Mccann is the head of UBS Wealth Management and a long time client and close friend of Mr. Kelly. Mr. Kelly introduced Mr. Mccann to President Clinton at an American Ireland Fund event in 2009. Mr. Kelly subsequently asked Mr. Mccann to support the Foundation, which he did via the Clinton Economic Opportunity Initiative. Mr. Kelly also encouraged Mr. Mccann to invite President Clinton to give several paid speeches, which he has done. ”

    “Over 1,000 guests from the spheres of business, the arts and politics attended the Gala at the Grand Hyatt New York at Grand Central. It is the largest of the 100 global events hosted annually by The Worldwide Ireland Funds. The 2015 American Ireland Fund New York Dinner Gala was chaired by Robert J. McCann, President Americas, UBS AG. The event celebrated Irish culture and heritage and generated much-needed funds for The Worldwide Ireland Funds’ Promising Ireland Campaign which has assisted over 800 Irish charities to-date.”
