    Hillary Clinton earned more than $5 million in book royalties and nearly $1.5 million for paid speeches last year, according to a financial disclosure form released by her campaign.

    She also took home nearly $1.5 million for six paid speeches — compared with her husband's $5.25 million for 22 speeches.

    Clinton's March 2015 speech to eBay was her highest paid — earning the candidate $315,000.

    Clinton's team took a swing at Trump in releasing her 11-page financial form, saying that despite the Republican's "boasting" the filing was "no breakthrough for transparency" but rather a "legal requirement" for presidential candidates.
