$153 million in Bill and Hillary Clinton speaking fees, documented, by Robert Yoon at CNN in 2016.
Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, combined to earn more than $153 million in paid speeches from 2001 until Hillary Clinton launched her presidential campaign last spring, a CNN analysis shows.
In total, the two gave 729 speeches from February 2001 until May, receiving an average payday of $210,795 for each address.
The Clintons are the real crooks, by Lion of the Blogosphere.
There’s no way they got paid that much because their speeches are so amazing. The people who paid them thought they were buying influence. A lot of that money came from foreigners. Even Russians.
Plus, $2 billion raised for the Clinton Foundation and other Clinton-related charities. Even the left-leaning Washington Post stated “the foundation elevates the wealthy by giving them entree to one of the nation’s most prominent political families.” That sounds like influence-buying to me. And we don’t entirely know where that money came from, because charities have very light reporting requirements.
Yet the media ignored that and is now focused on Trump and the Russians to the exclusion of almost all else. If the media-Democrat complex didn’t have double standards, it wouldn’t have any standards at all.
