Bill and Chelsea and Laura

Wikileaks has published 50,547 pages of documents sent by and to Hillary Clinton, spanning the period of 30 June 2010 to 12 August 2014.

Among this mass of juicy material is one email chain referring to Laura Graham, the chief operating officer of the Clinton Foundation. She apparently contemplated suicide in 2011 because she couldn’t handle the stress anymore.

According to one email, Doug Band, chief advisor to Bill Clinton 2002-2012, Laura Graham phoned him late at night in December 2011: “She was on Staten Island in her car parked a few feet from the water’s edge with her foot on the gas pedal and the car in park…She called me to tell me the stress of all of this office crap with wjc [William Jefferson Clinton] and cvc [Chelsea Victoria Clinton] as well as that of her family had driven her to the edge and she couldn’t take it anymore…I spent a while on the phone with her preventing her from doing that, as I have a few times in the past few months…”
