Outrageous Memo: Hillary Requires Travel in Private Jet, 1st-Class Tickets, Stenographer
A newly released memo uncovers the specific demands Hillary Clinton tacked on to her private speaking gigs while earning close to $2 million.
The hosts of Fox and Friends Weekend broke down the contents of that rider this morning, outlined here via CNN Money:
“According to the memo, Clinton requires travel by private jet, and even specifies that she prefers a Gulfstream 450 or larger. Her staff requires first class and business class tickets.
And two members of her staff require up to three days on site to prepare, with all local transportation and meals included.
The memo states Clinton should be booked into a presidential suite with up to three separate rooms attached.
Clinton also requires a flat fee of $1,000 to pay for an onsite stenographer to record everything she says. However, Clinton is not required to provide the host with a copy, according to the memo.”
Even as her numbers for trustworthiness and transparency continue to plateau, Hillary Clinton has been resisting calls to release transcripts of her Wall Street speeches.
The former secretary of state was asked about her expensive speaking fees back in February, when CNN’s Anderson Cooper pointed out that she once made $675,000 for just three speeches.
“Did you have to be paid $675,000?” he asked.
“Well, I don’t know. That’s what they offered,” Clinton replied.
