Clintons made $30million in 16months for Speaking.

Hillary Rodham Clinton and her husband made at least $30 million
over the last 16 months, mainly
from giving paid speeches to
corporations, banks and other organizations, according to
financial disclosure forms filed with federal elections officials on Friday.

The sum, which makes Mrs.Clinton among the wealthiest of the 2016 presidential candidates, could
create challenges for the former secretary of state as she tries to
cast herself as a champion of everyday Americans in an era of
income inequality.

The $25 million in speaking fees
since the beginning of last year continue a lucrative trend for the
Clintons:

They have now earned
more than $125 million on the circuit since leaving the White House in 2001.

In addition, the report shows, Mrs. Clinton reported income exceeding $5 million from her memoir of her time as secretary of state, “Hard Choices.”

The Clintons’ riches have already become a subject of political attacks in recent times.
