Hillary Clinton and her $200,000 Wall Street Speeches

In October 2013, Hillary Clinton was paid $225,000 to speak at Goldman Sachs "Builders and Innovators" conference. The audience at the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain Resort in Marana, Arizona was filled with tech entrepreneurs and investors. Some of the attendees said what Clinton said there was nothing controversial or memorable. If it sounds like a lot of money, it is actually roughly on the line what other famous public speakers receive per speech, for example, Donald Trump $1.5 million+, Bill Clinton $225,000+, George W. Bush $150,000, Condoleezza Rice $150,000, etc.


What Hillary Clinton Said In Her $225,000 Wall Street Speeches

The price tag has less to do with the content of the speeches themselves. Hillary Clinton is the only woman in the U.S to become First Lady and held elected office herself-- even before her husband was the President. She was named one of the 100 most influential lawyers by the National Law Journal. It is a known fact to many that Goldman Sachs is almost like an extended family to the Clintons. When Hilary's son-in-law opened a hedge fund, one of the primary investors in the fund was none other than Lloyd Blankfein, the Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs. Hillary Clinton's top financial adviser is Gary Gensler; he is a former partner of Goldman Sachs who worked in Bill Clinton's administration.

The Clinton couple, especially Hillary, is a very in-demand speaker. She usually charges around $200,000+ for a speech. As per a CNN analysis, Hillary Clinton and her husband earned a combined total of more than $153 million in paid speeches from 2001 until Hillary Clinton launched her presidential campaign, last spring. It is a way to fund her campaign and raise fund for her family foundation (Clinton Foundation).
