The University at Buffalo is refusing to disclose how much they paid Hillary Clinton to speak last year. In a statement to a local news station, the University said:
“Agreements with speakers…are maintained by the University at Buffalo Foundation, a private, non-profit organization. Those agreements, including information about speaking fees, are not public information.”
A reporter’s attempts to contact the Foundation produced no further information, except that the Foundation could well afford Hillary’s typical $200,000 speaking fee. “What little that’s out there suggests that the UB Foundation could certainly afford it–assets in excess of a half billion dollars. So they could afford $200,000 and a little bit more for a fee if that’s what Hillary Clinton was demanding for that particular speech.”
The reporter projected that, since there is no legal requirement to disclose, the fee would be revealed “Probably only if the former secretary herself discloses.”
