When Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton hits the campaign trail, she does her level best to portray herself and her ex-president husband, Bill, as ordinary, average Americans just looking out for the common folk.

For this narrative, Hillary even has even gone as far as suggesting that she and Bill were “dead broke” when they left the White House in 2000, a claim that PolitiFact has rated mostly false.

Even if the couple had large legal bills at the time — which were Bill’s fault, considering his lies to Congress and resultant impeachment over the Monica Lewinsky scandal — there is no doubt the power couple has done well financially since then. According to tax and financial records, the Clintons have earned nearly $140 million since 2007 and paid some $43 million in taxes, putting them squarely in the “1 percent” they love to complain about.

As Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge points out:

Ever since Mitt Romney’s tax disclosure fiasco in which allegations of tax avoidance and usage of offshore tax shelters played a major part in the Democrat counter campaign, there has been great interest in the Adjusted Gross Income reported by presidential candidates. Which is why to avoid any surprises on the primary circuit, Hillary Clinton released the full data of her and Bill’s tax income going back to 2007.

So without further ado, here is the Clinton family’s adjusted gross income since 2007. The summary: $139.1 million in income since 2007, most of it thanks to speeches starting at $225,000 and going much higher.
