Washington Post: Hillary Clinton was paid millions by tech industry for speeches
By Editor on May 19, 2015

*** begin quote ***

While it is common for former presidents to receive top dollar as paid speakers, Hillary Clinton is unique as a prospective candidate who received large personal payouts from corporations, trade groups and other major interests mere months before launching a White House bid. In some cases, those speeches gave Clinton a chance to begin sounding out themes of her coming campaign and even discuss policy issues that a future Clinton administration might face.

Companies that paid her to speak include industry giants such as Xerox, Cisco Systems and Qualcomm, as well as start-ups and trade groups focused on biotechnology and medical technology.

*** end quote ***

No, no corruption here. Any more than the contributions to the “Clinton Foundation” by foreigners when she was Secretary of State.

Argh!
