Clintons Share Their Wisdom While Living As Paupers
Hillary and Bill Clinton pocketed $25 million for giving more than 100 speeches since 2014, according to financial-disclosure forms released Friday by the former first lady’s campaign.
Hillary, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, also banked $5 million from her book, “Hard Choices.”
The Clintons’ income puts them at least in the top 0.1 percent of US residents, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Economic inequality has been a top theme for Democrats and Clinton, who in April complained about the fat paychecks of some corporate execs.
But the Clintons themselves have faced criticism for high speaking fees, which for Hillary have soared to $250,000 since she resigned as secretary of state.
