Oh those Clintons, they’re just like the rest of us. They were “dead broke” once so they had to start a charitable foundation to pay for their lavish travel and deliver speeches for massive sums of money in order to pay their bills. It looks like the strategy has worked pretty well for those champions of “Everyday Americans,” since they have raked in $25 million from speeches since the beginning of 2014.
Hillary and Bill Clinton earned more than $25 million in the past year and a half delivering more than 100 paid speeches, and Mrs. Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, collected more than $5 million from her book “Hard Choices,” an official for the campaign said Friday.
The Clinton campaign released the figures on the same day it filed a personal financial disclosure statement going back to the beginning of 2014, which it said is required by the Federal Election Commission. The information provided by the campaign was a preview of the full financial disclosure, which had yet to be released, and didn’t include the Clinton family’s total assets and liabilities.
The Clintons’ disclosed income since the beginning of 2014 would place them among the highest earners in the top 1% of the population. That is likely to serve as a reminder of the couple’s wealth, at a time when she is positioning herself as a champion of struggling middle-class families.

He went on to say that he gives 10% off the top to his charitable foundation, but didn’t mention that most of the money taken in by the foundation goes to staff salaries and benefits, as well as travel for the Clintons. Only a small fraction is actually used to help people.
