The reason for Police Commissioner Bill Bratton’s resignation is he is going to work for the Hillary Clinton linked firm Teneo. Bratton accepted a job at Teneo Holdings, a global advisory firm with strong ties to the Clintons. As head of the firm’s new risk-management division, the 68-year-old will advise CEOs on how to deal with issues ranging from terrorism to cybercrime. Mrs. Clinton’s longtime aide, Huma Abedin, performed work as a consultant to Teneo while she was employed by Mrs. Clinton at the State Department. Mr. Clinton himself was a paid adviser to the firm as well as a client.
Before that “Bratton told Trump to get lost, [saying], ‘We don’t play politics.’ Ironic because he refused to let Donald Trump sit in on a roll call at the Midtown North Precinct after the murder of five Dallas cops last month. Bratton is being called a sellout to the Clinton’s. This is the third time in his career Bratton has moved from police chief to the private sector. Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, has stated: “He doesn’t allow Trump to speak, he bashes Ted Cruz, and now he sits with Hillary and he’s working for a company with ties to the Clintons. So basically, he’s a bought-and-paid-for police commissioner.”Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, first hired Bratton as commissioner, was shocked by Bratton’s seeming endorsement of Clinton.
On August 18th Police Commissioner Bill Bratton had a message for cops about Hillary Clinton: She’s got your back. Bratton was joined at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice by his successor, NYPD Chief of Department James O’Neill. Ms. Clinton was also in attendance as was Los Angeles police chief Charles Beck, former Philadelphia police Chief Charles Ramsey, Chief Chris Magnus of the Tucson, Arizona, police department, Chief Kathleen O’Toole of the Seattle police department, Chief J. Scott Thomson of the police department in Camden County, N.J., and Dallas Sheriff Lupe Valdez.
“There is a great deal of concern about the fear permeating the country right now,” Bratton said Thursday after a two-hour Manhattan meeting with Clinton and other top cops.
Mayor Bill de Blasio was Ms. Clinton’s campaign manager when she first ran for senator of New York and he campaigned for her in 2008.
With the plethora of questions all of this political jockeying presents, the foremost question in my mind is, why would such a stand up guy like Police Commissioner Bill Bratton seemingly embracing a corporation that’s known for suspicious financial dealings?
