Last year, Hillary Clinton earned about $5 million in book royalties for her 2014 memoir, along with $1.5 million in speaking fees, while her husband Bill Clinton earned $4.6 million in speaking fees last year, according to her Federal Election Commission financial disclosure form.

A Vanguard fund and a JP Morgan account each hold between $5 million and $25 million, the documents show — holdings that comprise the bulk of Clinton’s personal wealth.

Donald Trump also filed his FEC financial disclosure form. It has not yet been made public (the government has to review the forms first) but his campaign bragged that it showed “tremendous cash flow,” according to the Associated Press. The New York Times reported that Trump said his financial disclosure form was “the largest in the history of the F.E.C.” His campaign statement said that he earned $557 million in income last year and has a net worth of more than $10 billion. Media outlets including Bloomberg News have disputed that figure, saying Trump’s net worth is actually closer to $2.9 billion.
