Bill and Hillary Clinton’s net worth ballooned from zero to $150 million after they left the White House “dead broke” in 2001. Yet by 2013, the Clintons were worth over $150 million. How?
Hillary and Bill used the Clinton Foundation as their own personal slush fund to bankroll their lavish lifestyles, investigative journalist Peter Schweizer wrote in his bestseller, Clinton Cash.
In 2000, Hillary and Bill owed millions of dollars in legal fees stemming from multiple investigations into their Whitewater investments and the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal.
By 2001, Hillary and Bill were broke, she claimed.
“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,” said Hillary.
So how does an elderly couple get filthy-rich in 10 years on a government salary?
While the public thinks the Clintons accumulated most of their wealth through lucrative speaking fees and book deals, this isn’t the case, according to Schweizer.
They made much of that money during Hillary’s stint as U.S. Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013 (annual salary: $186,000).
During her four years as Secretary of State, the Clintons raked in a fortune peddling her influence to foreign governments, according to Peter Schweizer’s extensive research.
Clinton Cash follows the money trail to spotlight the connection between Bill and Hillary’s massive fortune, the Clinton Foundation, and foreign governments such as Saudi Arabia, a leading state sponsor of terrorism.
While the Clinton Foundation (an alleged charitable organization) has garnered more than $2 billion in donations, only 10% goes to charity.
A recent congressional report suggests the Clinton Foundation distributed bogus AIDS drugs to poor Africans while skimming profits off the top, as Revo Republic has reported.
Hillary Clinton has already shown criminally poor judgment when she used a personal e-mail account housed on an unsecured private server in her basement during her tenure as Secretary of State.
What would she do if elected president of the United States? Would she sell out the country for more money?
