Sanders earned less in 2014 than Clinton earned from one speeh that year

The Hill -  Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders earned less in 2014 than Hillary Clinton did in just one of her 45 paid speeches that year, a new report says.

Sanders reported slightly more than $200,000 on his tax returns that year.  The Weekly Standard on Friday checked that with a CNN analysis from February, finding that Clinton gave multiple speeches in 2014 worth more than Sanders’s entire income that year.

It said that the former secretary of State gave speeches worth $225,000 to GE, $325,000 for the National Automobile Dealers Association and $280,000 for Deutsche Bank AG.

CNN’s analysis found that Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, earned a combined $153 million in paid speeches between February 2001 and last May.
