Why Hillary and Bill are the Mafia mobsters of US politics: She’s dodged a bullet. But in a brilliant dispatch, RICHARD LITTLEJOHN reveals US voters’ revulsion at the stench of corruption that won’t go away
When Bill Clinton (pictured with Hillary, right) left the White House after two terms as President in 2001, Hillary complained that they were flat broke. Today they are reported to be worth a staggering $150 million (equal to £120 million at today’s post-Brexit vote exchange rate). So where’s the money come from? And what did all these mega-donors receive in return? Much of it came from Wall Street banks and malodorous foreign regimes, prepared to pay up to $750,000 (£600,000) for a single speech.
