Advance Crony Payment: Hillary Clinton to Speak to Carlyle Group Investors

Hillary Clinton is set to be the featured attraction at the private equity firm The Carlyle Group’s investor conference next month - the latest in a string of paid speeches the former Secretary of State is making in the window she has to decide on a 2016 campaign.
Two sources familiar with the event confirmed Clinton’s attendance at the Sept. 9 event in Washington, reports Politico.

The moderator will be the group’s founder, David Rubenstein, a Democrat, who also managed to show up at the White House for a 60th wedding anniversary party for George H.W. and Barbara Bush, and gave the toast!

Clinton’s speaking fee is roughly $200,000, according to multiple reports, says Politico.


  1. If my hair wasn't so long it'd be standing on end. Gives me the shivers she does.

  2. The crony Power Elite in plain sight is what this is!

  3. $200K per pop? What a joke.

    Have people endured this woman's laborious, monotone droning as she reads her speeches like a robot? I wouldn't pay 20 cents to hear her babbling.
