As often as Hillary Clinton has bashed the DNC and the type of damage she represents, you would think the Committee would demand compensation for their financial support of the failed politician. Instead, they continue to shell out big bucks and for what?
According to The Daily Wire, Hillary Clinton will speak, ostensibly at no cost, to the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Thursday night, but it might just be the most expensive speech she’s ever given.
This exorbitant speaking fee comes at a time when the DNC is strapped for cash and being outraised considerably by its Republican counterpart, the Republican National Committee (RNC), the NTK Network reports.
Clinton has already taken upwards of $1 million from the DNC over the last several months. Meanwhile, as of April of this year the DNC reportedly only has $10 million in funds available with a staggering debt of $6.3 million looming over them that they owe creditors.
In Clinton’s own words she inherited nothing from the DNC when she became the Democratic nominee, calling the organization bankrupt. In Clinton’s eyes, the Democratic National Committee was heavily flawed, broke, and held together by her once she took over.
“It was bankrupt. It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was mediocre to poor, non-existent, wrong,” Clinton said at the Code Conference. Still, somehow they manage to pay Clinton? Take a look.
The cash-strapped Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) have combined to pay Hillary Clinton’s “resistance” group nearly $900,000 for list acquisitions, Federal Election Commission filings show.
The DNC, which is in the midst of facing financial hardships, conjured up $300,000 on Jan. 8 to pay Onward Together, Clinton’s group, for “list acquisition,” according to the FEC filings. The payment was made to Clinton’s organization as state Democratic parties were waiting on $10 million in funding for rebuilding efforts that was initially promised last July.
