Why won't Hillary release the transcripts of her paid Goldman-Sachs speeches?

    The people demand it.

    "I will certainly look into it?" They are your transcripts! Download them from your private server and publish them.

    Wow.. if transcripts for paid speeches are now a cause for concern, then Trump and Cruz should be shaking in their boots, especially seeing that Cruz wasted a fair amount of taxpayers money to read his children a bedtime story.

    Bush already said he will release the transcripts of all his paid speeches. Not sure if Cruz has made any, since he is a sitting Senator. Trump I'm sure couldn't care less.

    Why won't Hillary release the transcripts? What is she hiding?

    Cruz's wife is a Goldman Sachs employee. If he and Hillary win the nomination, there can't be much of a 'Wall Street cronyism' talking point.

    That she bows down to Wall Street and knows the left will hang her dry for it.

    bl, are you a paid operative of Hillary ?
    Hard not to notice that you are always one of the first to rush in to defend her and try to get threads closed when they are not to your liking.
    Serious question, BTW.

    You'll notice that I've been on this forum far before when Hillary came into question as a candidate for POTUS, let alone Secretary of State. If you'd like to know, you could do your research before asking such an outlandish question.

    However, serious question pointed right back at you: As an elected member of Congress, do you think that a US Senator should use his time on the job for personal matters, such as reading a story to his children while on the job?

    Precisely. Those transcripts contain Hillary's "47 percent" moment and she knows it.

    Your opinion and belief, but until they released, no-one knows. So let's leave the speculations to when they are released, if they ever are or need to be.

    I'll note that you didn't actually answer the serious question. Doesn't matter when you registered here, you could have started as a paid operative 2 weeks ago [to point out the obvious].

    As regards yours, I don't think anyone, be he a garbage man or senator, should use company time to attend to personal matters unless the circumstances are exceptional.
    I live by that as well, if I took all my home laundry to work every day, I wouldn't get anything done and I'd be distracted, which is dangerous in my line of work.

    Why do you ask ?

    I think I've been here long enough to easily say that you should go through my posting history, and ask yourself this question again. If you honestly think that I am a paid operative for HRC, you're either getting really paranoid about people here, or can't take it if someone tried to counter your arguments.

    I will say this; unlike Shkreli, you won't find me pleading the 5th.

    Then you should be just as pissed off at Ted Cruz, for during a filibuster for voting on the Affordable Care Act, he read Green Eggs and Ham to his children as part of his filibuster.

    After all, if personal time, he should do it on his own and off the clock, not on the job, and on the taxpayer's dime. So would you be just as equally upset about Cruz, or is it another case of IOKIYAR?

    I don't know who Shkreli is, and I note that you still have not given a straight answer.
    You have insinuated the answer is no, so I will take you for your word leave it at that.


    Not much of a Cruz fan, though he looks like gold compared to Shillary.
    Filibusters are exceptional circumstances, the object is to ramble and waste time so if he reads a story or whistles Dixie, one is just as good as the other.
    Are you proposing this as a scandal or something ? Clutching at wax coated straws if thats the case.
    --- Post Merged, Feb 5, 2016 ---
    Wow, from dead broke [So claimed Shillary] in 2001 to aspiring billionaires now just from gabbing, not bad !

    Don't get me wrong, nothing wrong with turning talk into $$ if you can do so - The obvious question is how much influence peddling can be tied to these bland bribes ,,,Err, I mean, speaking fees.


    $153 million in Bill and Hillary Clinton speaking fees, documented

    Well I doubt there is much condemnation of bailouts and the looting of the system by Bankers and Wall Street.

    I'm not always a Republican (I was in the early 1990s, actually), but it's not about guilt or innocence. Or perhaps it is - innocent until proven guilty? She has a right to a personal life just like the rest of us. Just as if we wanted to do business we wouldn't share trade secrets.

    Then again, are these speeches "business"? Why or why not?

    I believe that when she made the speeches in question, she was a private citizen and neither was in office nor running for office at the time. She is under no obligation to release transcripts for those any more than she is obligated to release her high school or college transcripts.

    Unless we can show that she was doing anything illegal (and there is no evidence that there is), their only relevance is that she did them and really, that isn’t newsworthy since it’s fairly normal practice for politicians to give speeches at events.

    I'm not sure why anyone cares what was in those speeches.

    I think Hillary should do like the NFL, though, and state "any copies or rebroadcasts are property of..." and offer to sell the transcripts to "the people" who are demanding them - namely the GOP candidates.

    Seriously, people. Get a life!

    MSNBC brought this issue to the fore and Bernie is going to hammer on it again and again.

    While she is at it, Hillary should release her medical records so we know how debilitating her stroke really was.

    Trying to get a straight answer from him is like trying to get a sloth to run, just not gonna happen. He is out to prove everyone who doesn't perfectly agree with him an evil racist, and in his mind he has greatly succeeded. Delusional ? Yes, most hardcore liberals are.
