Clinton Banked $6.7 Million From Paid Speeches in 2015

Hillary and Bill Clinton brought in a combined total of $6.725 million in paid speeches in 2015, according to a personal financial disclosure form released late Tuesday night.

According to a document her campaign released last year, Clinton gave six paid speeches for a combined income of $1.475 million. One of her biggest pay days was a speech given to Ebay on March 3, 2015 for $315,000. 

Bill proved to be the 'bread winner' of the pair by giving 22 paid speeches last year for a total of $5.25 million. Eleven of the speeches came after his wife announced her presidential bid. 

In 2014, the Clintons made a combined $18 million from roughly 100 paid speeches to mostly large banking groups.

Clinton has taken heat from Democratic contestant Bernie Sanders for what he claims is the corruption between the elite politicians and Wall Street.
