Michael: In 2001 the Clinton's left the White House in debt do to legal expenses (thanks to Bill) - Disclosures from the period suggest that the pair had around $1.8 million in assets and as much as $10.6 million in legal fees. Since 2001 the pair have recorded roughly $230 million in earnings. They list the source of the majority of their income coming from speaking fees. Bill Clinton collects an average of $250,000 per speech to Hillary's $235,000 per speech. That's a lot of speeches. Whether they actually gave all those speeches is a whole other argument.
