WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal tax returns released by Hillary Rodham Clinton show she and former President Bill Clinton paid an overall 35.7 percent tax rate on tens of millions the couple earned between 2007 and 2014.

In a statement released by her campaign Friday, the Democratic candidate for president says the couple has paid nearly $44 million in federal taxes since 2006 and donated nearly $15 million to charity.

The Clintons donated 11.4 percent of their income to charity in 2014. This year, the Clintons boosted personal donations to their own foundation to more than $5 million.

Clinton's statement doesn't comment on her earnings in that time, but the couple earlier reported having earned more than $30 million from speeches and book royalties since mid-2013.
