The campaign took a swipe at GOP front-runner Donald TrumpDonald TrumpSunday shows preview: House GOP removes Cheney from leadership position; CDC issues new guidance for fully vaccinated Americans Navajo Nation president on Arizona's new voting restrictions: An 'assault' on our rights The Memo: Lawmakers on edge after Greene's spat with Ocasio-Cortez MORE in a statement accompanying the disclosure; Trump filed his own disclosures Tuesday afternoon. 

"Despite Donald Trump's boasting, submitting his Personal Financial Disclosure form is no breakthrough for transparency. It is a legal requirement for anyone running for president,” Clinton campaign spokeswoman Christina Reynolds said.

“The true test for Donald Trump is whether he will adhere to the precedent followed by every presidential candidate in the modern era and make his tax returns available, as Hillary Clinton has done." The campaign included a link to all of her disclosures that triggered a popup message calling for Trump to release his tax returns.

Clinton’s Democratic rival, Bernie SandersBernie SandersWarren calls for US to support ceasefire between Israel and Hamas Prominent Muslim group to boycott White House Eid celebration over stance on Israel-Gaza violence Biden speaks with Israel's Netanyahu again amid ramped-up strikes in Gaza MORE, received an extension to file his disclosure. He won’t file until after the primary season ends. And Trump has repeatedly refused to release his tax returns despite criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike. 

Hillary Clinton’s paid speeches have already been disclosed in previous filings, but the updated paperwork was required by federal election law.

But Bill Clinton has given seven more paid speeches since that last release, in May of 2015. He also earned a “nonemployee compensation over $1,000” from The Varkey Foundation, an education nonprofit, as well as another from Laureate Education, a for-profit university Clinton ended his role with after as the group faced financial questions.
