The Hill reported in an article entitled, "Clinton promises to release Wall Street transcripts if opponents do the same".

Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have racked up $153 million in speaker fees since 2001, including from financial firms like Goldman Sachs and UBS.

Is the above claim true?

  • This indicates less. It would be interesting to dig up their dataset. – Jan Doggen Feb 8 '16 at 8:42

    @JanDoggen: I only skimmed that article, but it seemed to be talking about "since 2014", where the question asks "since 2001". – Oddthinking Feb 8 '16 at 23:56

True: the Clintons received $153 million in speaker fees.

It seems to be be true. CNN states, since 2001,

  • The Clintons have given 729 speeches; paying an average of $210,795; for a total of $153,699,691.

They break this down to

  • Bill: 637 speeches; paying an average of $207,255; for a total of $132,021,691.
  • Hillary: 92 speeches; paying an average of $235,304; for a total of $21,648,000.
