Not much to speak of when it comes to the Clintons, really. Based on the normal bribe fee for “speeches” this amount would get you only about five minutes of Grandma’s southern-style folksy wisdom.

The embattled Clinton Foundation can add a new name to its long list of donors under scrutiny — the scandal-tarred world soccer federation.

FIFA donated as much as $100,000 to the charity headed by Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, foundation records revealed, with no further details available.

On Wednesday, US authorities indicted 14 soccer officials.

FBI agents arrested the officials meeting in Switzerland, as the head of the Justice Department described a conspiracy of bribery and corruption in the selection of World Cup host countries and sponsors.

The Clinton Foundation, already under fire for accepting multimillion-dollar contributions from nations including Saudi Arabia, disclosed only the range of the contribution — from $50,001 to $100,000.

Bill Clinton hobnobbed with FIFA President Sepp Blatter at the World Cup in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2010.

Clinton was serving as honorary chairman of the effort to bring the event to the US in 2018 or 2022.

When the United States lost in 2010, Clinton was so enraged that he threw an object across a hotel room and shattered a wall mirror, Britain’s Telegraph reported.

Clearly the Clintons have anger issues.
