The Clintons lined their joint bank accounts with millions of dollars from Bill’s speaking fees from foreign governments, government related organizations and multinational corporations.
But you won’t see all of the details on Hilary’s mandatory financial reports filed and publicized while she was secretary of state.

Sure looks like it, because Hillary’s financial disclosures routinely omitted the sponsorships of many of Bill’s lucrative speeches.
