Hillary and Bill Clinton have earned over $25 million to deliver speeches during the last year and a half.
It appears from information about Hillary Clinton's finances that she has been forced to hand over because she is a candidate in the presidential elections next year.
The couple have given over a hundred speeches, which together has earned them more than $25 million.
That means that presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton are among the nation's 0.1 percent richest, according to the newspaper Wall Street Journal.
Economic inequality has been an important issue for the Democratic Party in recent years, and Hillary Clinton have criticized the high salaries of business managers.
However, she has herself been criticized for her high fees, which have risen further after she quit as foreign minister in 2013. Critics on the political left also fear that she has set herself in debt to big financial companies by receiving sizable payments for speeches.
