Clinton speeches raised at least $12 million for foundation

PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire (AP) -- The Clinton Foundation says Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton have raised at least $12 million to support the family's philanthropy since 2002 by giving paid speeches.

The speeches may have brought in as much as $26.4 million to the foundation, which released a list of nearly 100 speeches and a broad range of the fees the Clintons received for delivering them.

The fees benefited the Clinton Foundation, the global charity the former president started after he left the White House. The foundation's finances have come under heavy scrutiny as Hillary Rodham Clinton seeks the White House for a second time.

Most of the fees were paid for speeches by former President Bill Clinton, who raised between $8.7 million and $19.35 million. Hillary Clinton raised between $2.95 million and $6.25 million.
