After 87 days of vanishing from the public, Eric Braverman, ex-CEO of the Clinton Foundation, has now appeared in the public record of a press release from Alphabet Inc.
Eric Braverman, the former CEO of the Clinton Foundation, has been hired to oversee the non-investment side of the family office of Alphabet Inc. Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and his wife, Wendy.
Braverman will be in charge of the philanthropic arm of the Menlo Park-based Eric and Wendy Schmidt Group, an official with the organization told the Silicon Valley Business Journal. The group has given away hundreds of millions of dollars for environmental and other causes… More.
Case closed, right?
Well, not really. Not yet…
Snopes deserves some credit for not taking this latest PR as proof Braverman is no longer missing. They are still calling the rumors “unproven.” After all, he still hasn’t been photographed holding today’s New York Times!
I reached out to the author of the Biz Journal article, above, and he confirmed that he had no direct contact with Eric Braverman.
@irootsorg Requests for interviews were declined by the spokesperson for the Schmidts
“I met with Eric Schmidt tonight,” John Podesta, the longtime Hillary Clinton adviser, told campaign manager-in-waiting Robby Mook in April 2014, more than a year before Clinton announced her candidacy for president.
