Bill Clinton’s pay at for-profit education company topped $17.5 million

Bill Clinton was paid more than $1 million in 2015 by Laureate Education, a global operator of for-profit colleges, according to tax returns released today by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

The new figure brings the former president’s total compensation from Laureate to more than $17.5 million for his five-year role as an “honorary chancellor.” His role consisted of advising the company on educational matters and traveling to campuses across the world to speak to young people. Clinton ended his position at Laureate in April 2015 after Hillary Clinton launched her bid for the White House.

Laureate International Universities, the company’s international arm for which Clinton worked, has donated $1 million to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation, with a new contribution made as recently as the second quarter of this year, according to records posted on the foundation’s website.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has criticized Hillary Clinton’s connection to Laureate. Trump has accused her of having "laundered" money through Laureate while she was secretary of state — a charge that has been discredited by fact-checkers. House Republicans have asked the feds to investigate the Clintons’ ties to Laureate.

Laureate says that its international operations represent the largest global network of degree-granting universities in the world, enrolling more than 1 million students across 28 countries. In the United States, the company owns Walden University, a Minneapolis-based online school that the Education Department has placed on a list of colleges that officials are more closely monitoring because of concerns over its “financial responsibility.”

Laureate is in the process of going public. It filed for an initial public offering last fall.

Former Students Speak Out In Support of Trump University

The recent press attacks upon Trump University have not been an accurate representation of the professionally run school that provided a quality real estate education. While the press has taken selected portions of documents and testimony and spun them in order to further their agenda of attacking Mr. Trump’s business record, the true story is best told by the students who attended Trump University and used the information they learned to become successful real estate investors and entrepreneurs. The students on this video are representative of the many students who were overwhelmingly satisfied with Trump University. Rather than listen to the media spin, listen to the hard-working students who can attest first-hand to the truth about Trump University.

Now we need to tie this education group to the state department. When USAID gave them grants what were the dates of these grants. If you do the research on this university you’ll find that they operate in a lot of countries. Hillary and Bill or sometimes crossing each other in these countries. I remember her being in Columbia at the same time BILL was there for the University

Former President Bill Clinton also took in more than $16 million from 2010 to 2014 as the honorary chancellor of Laureate Education, a for-profit company that runs 80 educational institutions around the world.

Four of its six U.S. colleges are having their access to financial aid monitored by the U.S. Department of Education because of issues of financial responsibility.

The Laureate Institute has donated somewhere between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation. Clinton stepped down as honorary chancellor of Laureate, within days after his wife entered the presidential race.

Douglas Becker, the CEO of Laureate, is a major donor to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. When she was secretary of state, the State Department gave $55 million to the International Youth Foundation, which Becker chairs! This was at the same time that Hillary’s husband, Bill Clinton, was serving as “honorary chancellor” of Becker’s Laureate International Universities.

This is one if the many subjects that the Media has declared off limits with the Fully Immune Clinton Crime family.

Remember, FOX tried to take out Trump over Trump U.
