Posted on 07/05/2014 6:55:38 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Hillary Clinton continued to justify her high-dollar speaking fees on Friday, telling ABC News' Ann Compton that all of the money she's made from colleges over the past year and a half has been donated to her family's foundation.
"All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and life-saving work. So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation," Clinton said when asked about the criticism she and her husband have faced recently for their wealth.
Hillary Clinton reportedly makes roughly $200,000 for each speaking engagement. And recent reports show that she has made much more from some of the country's top universities.
Last week, students at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, where Clinton is scheduled to speak at a fundraiser in October, asked the former secretary of state to return her fee of $225,000 back to the university. If she does not, the students said they plan to protest her visit.

Students are catching on? About time...they could become a huge voting block.
Do the Clintons really think they can insult our intelligence with such impunity???
So, Hillary is saying she donates the fees she receives, to a closely held family foundation which she is in charge of. Hello......Does that mean that Hillary is saying she didn’t really get the money, and that she’s not making big money from speeches?????
Donated to her own charity, how cool is that?
all of the money she’s made from colleges over the past year and a half has been donated to her family’s foundation.
-—I put all the money in my right front pocket instead of my purse.
So now it’s Mother Hillary?
“Do the Clintons really think they can insult our intelligence with such impunity???”
Uhm—ye-eah! Dems do this all the time with impunity. Read almost anything Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid say. Those bogus facts are not for you and me. They are made especially for their constituents who eat it up along with the latest tabloid story on Elvis’ alien baby.
We are supposed to believe this shameless liar?
LOL. The life-changing, life-saving work of promoting Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Gee.....America is a great place, isn’t it. Where else could you accomplish three things with one phony action at one time.
1) The University gets to pander to the perceived power of a so-called ‘front runner’,
2) Queen Hillary gets to write off the fee against income as a ‘donation’, and
3) Queen Hillary still gets to use the money for her purposes (tax free) for whatever she wants......
You can’t beat that with a stick. Control a foundation as a principal, rape and pillage it for whatever you want, and go out there and claim “I gave away all the fees to a charity.
Here’s a challenge. See if any of you can find a published complete financial statement for this “foundation.”
as my mother would say, “a likely story”
A political leach, this is why we are in trouble with lifer politicians. Both Demonkrats and Repulikans.
ABSOLUTELY! They've been doing it for 40 years and their popularity continues to grow as America's social divide widens and IQs drop.
So, public universities paid exorbitant speaking fees to her. Which she supposedly donated to the foundation she, Bill and Chelsea manage.
Ummm....that’s not donating anything.....that really is lining your own pocket. With the extra bonus of a tax deduction for the “donation.” Clever!
How many poor students could have gotten tuition assistance with the money paid to her for her speaking fees? Just wondering.
I’ve started the Bogus Pachysandra Foundation. Please donate! Our goal is to fill barren patches of earth with fake ground cover plants. Thankyou.
It’s real cool .saves a TON of taxes ..she’s turning a damned profit on the write offs I bet
I think it has about a dozen employees - Chelsea and her hubby and some of their friends from college; all making six figures.
Oh yeah, it may have purchased Chelsea's $3.2 million dollar condo in NY as an executive perk.
What a racket.
My point is that this “foundation” is a way to hide money and to reduce the bite on any taxable income its principals might supposedly earn. It is also a collection point for bribes, campaigning expenses and a clearing house for their devious plans. There is nothing charitable about it.
Do a search for “clinton foundation form 990”. The latest available tax return is for 2012.
Chelsea is on the board but draws zero salary.
The foundation has $150 million in property assets (wow!) and about $100 million in cash.
It looks like they have a run rate of about $50 million a year in contributions. Their major donation is to some farming implements and drug dispensing groups in Africa.
They spend a TON on salaries relative to the amount they dispense, but they do give out some money.
