How the Clintons Went from ‘Dead Broke’ to Rich: Bill Earned $104.9 Million for Speeches

I wouldn't pay 10 cents to hear Bill talk, but others apparently have another view. Are they perhaps really buying access to a future President Hillary?

A WaPo review of the Clintons’ federal financial disclosures has found that Bill was paid $104.9 million for delivering 542 speeches around the world between January 2001 and January 2013, when Hillary left her job as secretary of state.

Speeches are the primary source of income for the couple, although they also make money from book royalties and investments.
