Here there are two meanings about "accepted payments" that contradict each other.

(1) Hugh Rodhab was payed with money.
(2) Hugh Rodhab payed money (to others).

It seems (1) is correct.

Am I on the right track?


Thanks in advance

Pardons and commutations
Clinton controversially issued 141 pardons and 36 commutations on his last day in office on January 20, 2001.[39][136] Most of the controversy surrounded Marc Rich and allegations that Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, accepted payments in return for influencing the president's decision-making regarding the pardons.[137] Federal prosecutor Mary Jo White was appointed to investigate the pardon of Rich.
