Today Reuters released a report on the STAGGERING sum of money that the poor Clinton’s racked in since 2014. Just for speeches. This is the woman who lied about being broke when she left the White House.
Hillary and Bill Clinton earned over $25 million for delivering more than 100 speeches since 2014, according to financial disclosure forms released by the Clinton campaign.
Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, also earned $5 million in royalties for her book, “Hard Choices,” which was released in June, according to the forms.
The Clintons’ income puts them at least in the top 0.1 percent of the U.S. population, the Journal reported.
Economic inequality has been a top campaign theme for Democrats for the past several years and Clinton in April voiced concern about the hefty paychecks of some corporate executives in an email to supporters.
But the Clintons themselves have faced criticism for high speaking fees, which for Hillary Clinton have gone up to $250,000 since she left the helm of the State Department in 2013. Liberals have criticized her for taking money from financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, for speeches they say make her beholden to big business
