Former Bill Clinton aide described former first daughter Chelsea Clinton as a “spoiled brat kid” in an 2011 email to John Podesta, who is currently serving as Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager.

The email was published as part of the latest batch of emails released by Wikileaks. It refers to a “cvc” in the text, which appears to be a reference to Chelsea Victoria Clinton.

“Need get this asap to them although I’m sure cvc won’t believe it to be true bc she doesn’t want to,” Band wrote to Podesta about a draft memo regarding Band’s new consulting firm, Teneo Holdings. “Even though the facts speak for themselves.”

Band, who played an integral role in establishing the Clinton Foundation, sent the email in November 2011, several months after launching Teneo, a global consulting firm for corporations and plutocrats.

Rumors have swirled in the press for years that Chelsea was responsible for Band’s ouster from the Clinton Foundation, and from the Clinton inner circle. She reportedly blasted Band’s “inexcusable incompetence” after a negative New York Times article about the foundation in 2013. Band ultimately resigned from his role at the foundation in June 2015.
