MAN QUESTIONS CLINTON ON WALL STREET: “PLEASE JUST RELEASE THOSE TRANSCRIPTS SO WE KNOW WHERE YOU STAND”

SOURCE: REAL CLEAR POLITICS

At the MSNBC moderated Democratic presidential town hall in Las Vegas, Nevada, Hillary Clinton was asked by a Sanders supporter why she will not release video or transcript of her private speeches to Wall Street banks.
“As a realtor here in Nevada I know how important the economy is to our great nation. As a Democratic candidate who has delivered speeches to the largest U.S. financial institutions in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees, why are you hesitant to release transcript or audio/video recordings of those meetings to be transparent with the American people regarding the promises and assurances that you have made to the big banks?” the man asked Clinton.

“Let me say this, I am happy to release anything I have when everybody else does the same because every other candidate in this race has given speeches to private groups, including Senator Sanders,” Clinton responded.

After Clinton answered his question, the man then said he was a big supporter her and her husband until she said marriage is between one man and one woman. Since she changed her position on marriage, the man asked her to release transcripts from paid Wall Street speeches so she can be trusted.

“Secretary Clinton, I do respect you very much. In fact, only a decade ago I was a very big supporter of yourself and your husband. It actually broke my heart when you said marriage was between a man and a woman. How can we trust that this isn’t just more political rhetoric? Please just release those transcripts so that we know exactly where you stand,” the man pleaded with Clinton.
