$153 million in Clinton speaking fees since 2001, documented
CNN has performed a very useful service by compiling a searchable list of the speaking engagements through which Hillary and Bill Clinton received $153 million, almost exclusively from moneyed interests with business affected by the federal government.
In total, the two gave 729 speeches from February 2001 until May, receiving an average payday of $210,795 for each address. The two also reported at least $7.7 million for at least 39 speeches to big banks, including Goldman Sachs and UBS, with Hillary Clinton, the Democratic 2016 front-runner, collecting at least $1.8 million for at least eight speeches to big banks.
While some may point out that Bill Clinton can be an amusing and engaging speaker in his lucid moments, when the jaw is not slackened, it is comparatively rare to find people who can honestly describe a speech by Hillary as more pleasant than chalk being dragged on a slate board at the wrong angle.
And, as Ed Lasky points out:
Hey..don't forget Bill said he had to pay the bills and Hillary sure went from dead broke to filthy rich...all by capitalizing on their service "for the people" and "the little guy"?
