Hillary Clinton is starting a new political action committee and will resume giving paid speeches.
According to Axios’ Mike Allen, Clinton’s PAC will work as a “quiet catalyst” to help grassroots political organizations. She also plans to direct funds to congressional candidates in 2018. Allen’s sources say that the PAC is not a vehicle for a 2020 presidential bid.
The former secretary of state also plans to hit the paid speechmaking circuit. As Allen notes, Clinton’s speakers bureau, Harry Walker Agency, has a web page soliciting clients.
Prior to running for president, Clinton had a $225,000 asking price per speech. She raked in nearly $22 million between 2013 and 2015.
