E-gist|The Clintons Crowned Wealthiest Post White-House First Family

Recent reports claim the family is net worth $80 Million but garnered upto $155M in a year.

Former U.S President, Bill Clinton, wife Hillary Clinton and daughter Chelsea have been named America’s richest post-White House first family.

Despite fear the Clintons were at the verge of bankruptcy some few years ago, new financial reports are proving otherwise. Bill told CNN in a 2010, “I’ve never had any money until I got out of the White House, but I’ve done reasonably well since then.”

According to The Washington Examiner, the family has collectively hauled in a minimum of $155 million via their fees for public speaking, appearances, book revenues, pensions and jobs worked in that time, adding up to a collective $80 million net worth, more than double the $35 million his successor President George W. Bush has accumulated, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

In addition, the political royals have also established themselves as first-tier philanthropists with their Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, with a $257 million in assets.

The last full year of Bill’s presidency, 2000, the couple reported finances in the red, with debts estimated between $2.3 and $10.6 million, primarily to pay their attorneys; and holdings between $781,000 and $1.8 million.
