HILLARY'S SECRET $675,000 WALL STREET SPEECHES

When asked why she was paid some much money for a couple of speeches to Wall Street bankers Hillary's response was "I don't know, that's what they offered" Read more; Hillary Clinton is going to really regret saying these 4 words about Goldman Sachs

When asked to disclose what she said in those speeches (release the transcripts) she said, "only if everyone else in the race releases theirs" (Bernie already did)  sounding much more like a follower than a leader. Mrs. Clinton, Show Voters Those Transcripts

                             

Hillary must think Americans are stupid if she expects them to settle with the non-explanations she has offered about what looks like very serious differences between what she says and what she does.

She says she is tough on Wall Street yet takes obscene amounts of money from Wall Street bankers for speeches she insists on keeping secret. Pandering is not being tough.

She says she will "rein in" Wall Street rogues and punish those that break the law but her actions say that Hillary is the one being reined in by Wall Street bankers using money as the lure which is the only rational explanation of why so much money ($675,000.00) exchanged hands for nothing more than a few hours of speeches.

In an op-ed headlined "Mrs. Clinton, Show Voters Those Transcripts," the New York Times editorial board gets to the heart of why Hillary Clinton's insistence that she will release her paid speech transcripts when everyone else in the race does makes no sense.

They write:

On Tuesday, Mrs. Clinton further complained, “Why is there one standard for me, and not for everybody else?”

The only different standard here is the one Mrs. Clinton set for herself, by personally earning $11 million in 2014 and the first quarter of 2015 for 51 speeches to banks and other groups and industries ...

... Her conditioning her releases on what the Republicans might or might not do is mystifying. Republicans make no bones about their commitment to Wall Street deregulation and tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. Mrs. Clinton is laboring to convince struggling Americans that she will rein in big banks, despite taking their money.


The New York Times just perfectly explained Hillary Clinton’s Goldman Sachs speech problem
