Big Pharma, petrochemical companies and criminal banksters paid Bill and Hillary Clinton more than $100 million to give speeches
For this narrative, Hillary even has even gone as far as suggesting that she and Bill were "dead broke" when they left the White House in 2000, a claim that PolitiFact has rated mostly false.
Even if the couple had large legal bills at the time -- which were Bill's fault, considering his lies to Congress and resultant impeachment over the Monica Lewinsky scandal -- there is no doubt the power couple has done well financially since then. According to tax and financial records, the Clintons have earned nearly $140 million since 2007 and paid some $43 million in taxes, putting them squarely in the "1 percent" they love to complain about.
