Hillary Clinton reportedly sent almost $150,000 in leftover campaign funds to an LLC that organized her book tour and speaking engagement.
When her presidential campaign was going down the drain, she made some payments from Hillary for America to ZFS Holdings LLC.
These payments were identified as "rent" but an interview by the Guardian in 2016 shows a Hillary Clinton aide explaing “ZFS was set up when Secretary Clinton left the State Department as an entity to manage her book and speaking income.”

Per Free Beacon:
Hillary Clinton has sent $150,000 in leftover funds from her presidential campaign committee to a limited liability company that was established to manage her book and speaking income, filings show.
Clinton registered ZFS Holdings LLC, a Delaware-based LLC, on Feb. 8, 2013, just days after leaving the State Department, records filed with the Delaware Division of Corporations show. Later, in April 2014, paperwork was filed with New York State's Department of State.
ZFS's listed agent on its Delaware forms is the Corporation Trust Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wolters Kluwer, a Netherlands-based global company that provides services to legal, business, tax, accounting, finance, audit, risk, compliance, and healthcare clients.
The agent's address, which is used by more than 285,000 companies, including Trump business entities, is known as an epicenter of U.S. corporate secrecy.
Clinton's LLC was established to manage her income, a spokesperson acknowledged during the 2016 presidential campaign.
"ZFS was set up when Secretary Clinton left the State Department as an entity to manage her book and speaking income," the Clinton spokesperson told the Guardian in April 2016. "No federal, state, or local taxes were saved by the Clintons as a result of this structure."
These payments began after the election ended. The first payment to ZFS was on May 4, 2017 for $32,929.28. This was just short of six months after Hillary Clinton was defeated by President Trump in the election.
By May of last year Hillary for America had sent $149,456.78 to ZFS Holdings.
How will Hillary Clinton get out of this one? Is she finally going to be indicted? Time will tell. Crooked Hillary tends to be pretty slippery in these situations.
