Hillary: I’ll Release Speech Transcripts When Everyone Else Does


Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she would not release transcripts of her paid speeches to Wall Street firms as her opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders requested, unless everybody else who has given a others release those as well.

Stephanopoulos asked, “In the debate the other night, you said you would look into whether or not to release the transcripts of your speeches to financial groups. have you made up your mind?”

Clinton said, “Yeah, here’s another thing I want to say. Let everybody who has ever given a speech to any  private group under any circumstances release them and we will all release them at the same time. I don’t mind being the subject in Republican debates, the subject in the Democratic primary. It goes with the territory. At somepoint, you know, these rules need to apply to everybody. And there are a bunch of folks, including my opponent who has given, you know has given speech, speeches to groups and people on the other side who have given speeches to groups. If this is a new standard, it should apply to everybody. Then I’ll be happy to look into it further.”
