Hillary Clinton says she had a “restful” time following her tenure as Secretary of State, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t make a lot of money.
During that time, she made nearly $US12 million by charging fees that topped $US335,000 for dozens of speeches.
Clinton’s speaking fees shed light on the industries willing to shill out big bucks for a few minutes with the former Secretary of State.
As the Washington Post notes, a significant chunk of the money that Clinton made from speeches came from tech companies. eBay shilled out $US315,000 for a speech that last 20 minutes, while Cisco paid $US325,000 for Clinton to sit onstage with the company’s CEO. Salesforce.com brought Clinton back for multiple events.
And for discount spenders, Clinton offered a reduced price for remote addresses via satellite video. The former Secretary of State charged some of her lowest speaking fees to the California Medical Association and Novo Nordisk for video speeches.
The Washington Post and Politico agree on Clinton’s speaking fee from Qualcomm, which both reported as $US335,000. That’s not the number that Time saw – the magazine reported that Clinton made $US125,000 on the speech.
How much did Clinton make from the National Automobile Dealers Association? Politico says $US325,000, but Time and the Washington Post report that the number is $US225,000.
The publications also seem at odds over how much Clinton got paid for a speech at Deutsche. Time and Politico report $US280,000, but the Washington Post claims that the number is $US260,000
The discrepancies seem to be the result of the filing itself. The financial disclosure form, released online by the New York Times, is slightly blurry when users zoom in.
