Before Hunter Biden ... there was Chelsea Clinton, the only child of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She was similarly rewarded with jobs and board positions that had absolutely no relationship with that young womans interests, life, education or any perceived expertise.
All of this has racked up to what the New York Post reported back in 2015 was an estimated net worth of $15 million for the then-34-year-old. More recently, Barrons, the finance newspaper, revealed that Chelsea Clinton has now reaped $9 million from a corporate board position. In 2011, while her mother was still secretary of state, she was appointed to IAC/Interactive, an Internet investment company. She receives an annual $50,000 retainer and $250,000 worth of restricted IAC stock units, according to Barrons.
In 2017, Chelsea Clinton was also named to travel site Expedias Board of Directors. Because shes a business genius? A travel genius? An investment prodigy? The Hill reported that position typically earned $250,000 in 2015. Both IAC and Expedia are controlled by Barry Diller, the business and television mogul, who is a friend of Hillary Clinton.
In 2011, the same year she joined the IAC board, Chelsea signed with NBC News as a special correspondent. Politico reported she was rewarded with $600,000 a year to do what ended up being occasional fluffy feature stories. The New York Post noted, one was a creepy voiceover interview with the Geico gecko. Chelsea is such a special correspondent, shes done just 14 stories in two years and seven months for a total of 58 minutes of airtime.
Vanity Fair crunched the numbers and found, after she parted ways with NBC News in 2014, she ended up making $26,724 per minute ...

But Chelsea has a degree. So she is qualified for her international positions as a Board Member of international corporations. (And “fiend for Clinton”. Er, friend of Clinton.)
There still ain’t enough money to consider it. Just another chapter in the book of “Life Ain’t Fair”.
Chelsea Clinton is an amazingly dim bulb.
Makes Amy Carter look like a Rocket Surgeon.
In your face corruption...Buying influence for favor, publicly, right out in the open.
And some people say they can't understand why so many no longer trust big biz, government, the media etc...
How she made it? Simple, It’s called Clinton Corruption. Everything they gets their hands on is dirty. Nothing very comes to them through honesty.
I would love to hear from some of Chelsea’s classmates from Stanford - bet they have some interesting stories...
Leave Chelsea alone! She's just a working mom trying to balance all the demands in her life!
Bad title. Chelsea didn't make all that money, she got all that money by means available to only a handful of people in the USA.
She made money the old-fashioned way....she inherited it!
THAT is TOTALLY bogus! You know very good and well that Chelsea has people to boil her water for her!
Yeah, and she got a lot more the same way Hunter Biden got his: by being the middle man, or woman, in a thinly disguised influence peddling scheme.
It’s NOT WHAT you know...it’s WHO you know!
Graft and special favors to high level politicians in exchange for access and special exemptions in laws.
The buzz is Chelsea wore two pricey designer wedding gowns-—
Vera Wang for the ceremony and Oscar de la Renta for the reception.
I’ve been using Expedia, but not anymore.
Will Chelsea Doody ever come clean and admit to the world that she’s actually Chelsea Hubbell ?
Looks nothing like Slick W . Especially with them lunatic bug eyes .
