There’s new attention being paid to the speaking fees Bill Clinton commanded since he left office, thanks to questions raised by NBC’s Cynthia McFadden in an interview with the former president.

 

Back in June 2014, the Post did a deep dive into Clinton’s speaking fees and reported the following:

 

Bill Clinton has been paid $104.9 million for 542 speeches around the world between January 2001, when he left the White House, and January 2013, when Hillary stepped down as secretary of state, according to a Washington Post review of the family’s federal financial disclosures.

 

Although slightly more than half of his appearances were in the United States, the majority of his speaking income, $56.3 million, came from foreign speeches, many of them in China, Japan, Canada and the United Kingdom, the Post review found.

 

His biggest payday? He made $750,000 for a single speech in Hong Kong in November 2011. Not bad for a day’s work.
