In her last financial disclosure report, Hillary Clinton put her and her husband's estimated wealth at between $4 million and $20 million. That was 2012, this is now: The couple have in the last 16 months earned more than $25 million in speaking fees tied to more than 100 paid speeches, plus another $5 million in book royalties. NBC News notes this puts them "in the top one-tenth of 1% of all Americans." The numbers come from a personal financial disclosure report filed with the Federal Election Commission last night; such filings are required of presidential contenders.
How the New York Times frames the news: The disclosure "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." (An assertion likely not helped by this: Though Hillary last year memorably said she and Bill aren't like the "truly well off," the Times put the Clintons' post-White House speaking fee revenue at $125 million.) Reaction from the right, from RNC chair Reince Priebus: "The Clintons' claim that staggering amounts of income from paid speaking fees that raise ethical questions and potential conflicts of interest is simply to 'pay our bills' shows how out-of-touch they've truly become." (Hillary's rider for one talk specified these foods be available.)
