Sarah Sanders en route to lucrative lobbying at firm founded by Bill Clinton & # 39; s & # 39; body man & # 39;
Sarah Sanders is in conversation to join Teneo, a global consulting firm founded by assistants to former President Bill Clinton, to advise clients on Donald Trump's administration.
The former White House press secretary would serve as a contractor, unlike a full-time employee, reported Politics, in which several relevant sources were mentioned.
Sanders left the White House at the end of June and returned to her home state of Arkansas, where there is a run for governor – speculation fueled by Trump herself who indicated how great she would be in the job when she left his administration.

Sanders recently unveiled a personal website that encourages visitors to stay in touch & # 39; by signing up for receiving email updates
She has given some hints about her next move.
She launched one personal website on Monday – a slim site that promotes its relationship with Trump and encourages visitors to stay in touch # 39; by signing up for email notifications.
Her biography on that site – in addition to promoting her work in Trump's administration – notes that she advises & # 39; large companies and non-profit organizations & # 39 ;.
Sanders also signed with Fox News to make a contribution to the network from September onwards. During her term of office with the administration, Sanders often appeared on Fox News and Fox Business Network to defend the president and his policies.
The new performance keeps Sanders in the public eye and on Trump & # 39; s television – the president is a frequent viewer of Fox News.
By becoming a member of Teneo, companies can hire someone with experience working with Trump without actually having to hire a former member of his administration.
Teneo was founded in 2011 by Bill Clinton & # 39; s former personal assistant Doug Band; Declan Kelly, who worked at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hillary Clinton; and businessman Paul Keary.
The company works exclusively with the CEOs and senior executives of & # 39; the world's leading companies & # 39; to & # 39; Provide strategic advice on their full set of key objectives and issues & # 39 ;, on the website.
Clients include Dow Chemical, Coca-Cola, Weight Watchers, Delta and GE.
Teneo is based in New York City, but has offices in 17 locations around the world and more than 800 employees.
Sanders would consider joining the group – who has built up her Republican resources – after claiming on the White House stage that the president had drained the swamp: a term in Washington DC for the pleasant relationship between paid lobbyists and members of the government.
Teneo was started by Bill Clinton & # 39; s former body man
Doug Band was Clinton & # 39; s body man at the White House and later helped him set up the Clinton Foundation before co-founding Teneo
Doug Band can be seen on this February 2007 photo with Ghislaine Maxwell, the woman reported that she acted as a & # 39; Mrs. & # 39; for accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein
Band quarreled with Chelsea Clinton – seen here in July shortly after the birth of her third child – about his work at the firm and for the Clintons
Her comments came in May 2018 when it was revealed that attorney Michael Cohen – the former personal attorney for Trump – had not influenced the president in policy for large companies such as AT&T when he founded a lobby company.
& # 39; I think this further proves that the president will not be influenced by special interests. This is actually the definition of draining the swamp, & # 39; said Sanders during the daily White House press briefing.
Sanders would not be the only Trump alum to work at Teneo if she took the show.
Jason Miller, who was the spokesperson for the Trump campaign, also worked for Teneo.
Miller was on tap to become the president's communications director, but he derailed his political career by revealing that he had an extra-marital affair with a campaign leader who later carried his son.
But Miller left the company in June after taking a four-letter twitter letter against Jerry Nadler, a democratic congressman, who gave him a & # 39; thick bastard & # 39; called.
Miller & # 39; s tirade came after Nadler & # 39; s House Judiciary Committee interviewed White House's former communications director, Hope Hicks, about her time in the administration behind closed doors.

Hicks and Miller worked together on Trump's campaign and became good friends. Miller deleted the tweets and later deleted his account.
Teneo is heavy on democratic insiders.
Band, the co-founder of the company, was Clinton & # 39; s & # 39; body-man & # 39; during the last part of his term in the White House.
He joined the former president in his efforts after the White House, including helping the founding of the Clinton Foundation.
He was co-founder of Teneo in June 2011 and later that same year argued with Chelsea Clinton, who accused Band of having conflicts of interest between his work at the Clinton Foundation and his new company.
Band left the Clinton team the following year.
But he maintained ties with them.
Teneo hired Hillary Clinton aide Human Abedin to do advisory work for the company while working with Clinton at the State Department – an arrangement that raised eyebrows.
