The Ethics in Government Act requires public figures to report their outside income above $200. Yes, that is a very low threshold. Mrs. Clinton’s speaking fees were vastly more, reportedly a $225,000 minimum per speech. In that light, her failures to disclose seem hard to comprehend. However, Mrs. Clinton directed some of her fees to the Clinton Foundation, which is arguably different.
Even so, there are legitimate tax questions whether this is allowed. Beyond that, were the assignments to the Foundation timely and correctly documented? Getting straight answers even to more basic questions can be tough, even for CNN. For example:
Anderson Cooper: ”But did you have to be paid $675,000 [for three speeches to Goldman Sachs]?” Hillary Clinton: ”Well, I don’t know. That’s what they offered.”

Some observers believe it was Hillary doing the offering, and that she is not truthful about her Wall Street speaking fees. Material on her website suggests $225,000 as her minimum, with $225,000 for 34 of 41 speeches. Mrs. Clinton’s fees for the remaining speeches were at even higher prices. In total. she received $9,680,000 for these speaking engagements in 2013.
