Wasserman Schultz: Hillary Has ‘Had Consistent Transparency Across the Board’

DNC Chair Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) argued that “we’ve had transparency across the board” when asked about Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street speeches on Thursday’s “America’s Election HQ” following the Democratic debate.

Wasserman Schultz was asked, “You’ve always been a proponent of transparency. I remember talking to you numerous times in the Bush administration, where you’d brought up transparency. Given that history, do you think that Secretary Clinton should release the transcripts of those Wall Street speeches?”

She answered, “You know, that’s something that’s going to be up to the secretary, when it comes to transparency related to her official work, she released 55,000 pages of emails, and it doesn’t get more transparent than that. And I’m confident that she will make the kinds of decisions that she believes are necessary and appropriate, and when it comes to transparency, I think we’ve had consistent transparency across the board.”
