Hillary Clinton donates speaking fees to family's foundation

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton says she's donated to her family's foundation the huge sums she has earned in speaking fees at colleges for the last year and half.

Some students at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, have called for Clinton to return the $225,000 she is receiving for speaking at the university's foundation dinner this fall.

In an interview this week with ABC News, Clinton responded to criticism about such fees by saying the money had gone to the Clinton Foundation for what she called its "life-changing and life-saving work."

Clinton's wealth has been under scrutiny since an interview last month in which she described her family as "dead broke" and in debt when husband Bill Clinton left the White House in January 2001. She later called that description "inartful."
