Hillary Clinton headlined her first post-2016 fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee this week, which should help the DNC pay its bills to . . . her.
Clinton, you see, is insisting the Democratic Party pay her group, Onward Together, $1.65 million for access to the Hillary for America email list, voter data and software from the 2016 campaign. And that, The Intercept reports, is on top of the more than $700,000 the DNC has already paid to rent the list.
Indeed, the Republican National Committee notes (meow!) that Clinton only did this first fundraiser after the DNC stopped its payments to Onward Together because it’s basically out of cash.
With no more campaigns to run and a hefty personal fortune (plus a flush family foundation), Clinton could easily stop charging the party she led off a cliff, and even rebate what she has already collected — and plenty of Democrats want her to do just that.
