Bill Clinton’s alleged confidante is revealing dark family secrets, including confirming that the former president did, in fact, visit Jeffrey Epstein’s “pedophile island,” according to Fox News.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Doug Band revealed that Chelsea Clinton had issues with him because he ” was like a son to her father.”
“Chelsea hated Doug because he was like a son to her father.”
On the subject of Jeffrey Epstein and his circle of elites, Band likened the group to a cult.
“It’s like a cult, that world.”
“It’s hard to get yourself out and difficult to see outside of it. And it’s even harder to understand that when you’re inside.”
From Fox News:
Band, who landed an internship at 22 in Clinton’s White House, went on to serve as a gatekeeper and advocate for the former president. Starting in 2001, Band reportedly saw his job as restoring Clinton’s scandal-plagued legacy — something he says became increasingly difficult with his wife’s presidential run.
That reportedly caused a rift with Clinton’s daughter Chelsea, who is painted as having a sibling-type relationship with Band that became hostile after she acquired power in the foundation.

Band alleged that in June 2011, Chelsea demanded he offer her and her husband, financier Marc Mezvinsky, equity in his new business. Her father, who was present at the meeting, allegedly stood by her as she argued the $2.5 million offer to her father wasn’t enough.
“I thought she was kidding or deeply sick,” said Band, who reportedly felt like he was in a shakedown. The magazine reported that a Clinton family spokesperson denied that Chelsea asked for equity.
