Hillary Clinton MUST RELEASE Her Wall St.TRANSCRIPTS Now That the Prerequisite She Set Has Been Met




~snip~

In fact, she said quite the opposite ó she made a promise to the American people to release those transcripts once a specific prerequisite had been met. Not much nuance in that statement.

It means that when all Wall Street speeches given by all presidential candidates have been released, Americans will be able to find out, once and for all, what the candidate most likely to become President (81 percent chance) actually believes about the topic Americans consider far and away the most important. Neither of the two remaining candidates for President not named Clinton have given any speeches to Wall Street.

Which means itís time for us to see those speeches Secretary Clinton gave for a total of $25 million in speaking fees. Naturally, the media (still) agrees. Surely the media that was so keen on this topic less than three weeks ago has been knocking down Clintonís door to get this information the American people are so invested in? They havenít even tapped on that door.

Not a single question about the speeches has been asked to Secretary Clinton in the past two weeks, nor did the end of the Ted Cruz and John Kasich presidential campaigns ó which immediately triggered the release of Clintonís Wall Street speeches, per her own publicly declared standard ó cause anyone in the massive apparatus of our nationís Fourth Estate to start doing their job on this topic.

So the question becomes, outside of a single columnist on The Huffington Post, who in the mainstream media is going to be the first to demand that Secretary Clinton live up to her commitments and prove herself as honest as she says she is? And what will be the consequences if Americans ever get this information theyíre undoubtedly entitled to? Is knowing what a candidate believes and says in speeches to large groups not a part of the job interview for Most Powerful Person on Earth? Since when?

6. Won't happen. It would undoubtedly be political suicide for her.

 

I do think someone in the GOP will likely release at least portions of them in the GE though.

11. Are you guys sure she 'hasn't' released those transcripts and you may have possibly

just missed it?

I can't think of another possible explanation.

8. The Liar claimed she had reason to believe Trump has given paid speeches to Wall Street

She is never going to release the speech transcripts voluntarily.

19. Me, personally?

Noooo.

I've just been following this and was sure she'd promised to release them after everyone else had. Then I read of her most transparent claim and was even more sure they were coming.

For example, the speeches given up here paid mainly for by the two big banks pushing the Keystone XL - I have a right to know what she said up here. My taxes help pay for this, in one way or another.

15. More "Fiction and Fact from Seth's Almanac". Now that Seth

Abramson, boy English professor who at night dons his super-hero suit and becomes "HillaryMan" isn't able to make any of his famous predictions about how Bernie is (still) winning the nomination he's got a new shtick - "Where o where are the speeches???". I doubt this latest venture into Hillary bashing will do any more for him than his short-lived career as an election pollster.

16. She's doing what I expected of her, which is why I am voting for Sanders.

No surprises here, just as if she were to be president. Which I will not help her do.

23. I don't know what the big deal is. The transcripts simply say:

 

"I will never support any legislation that will reduce the profits of (fill in the name of the corp paying for the speech). Make the check out to ClintonCash and have my car brought around."

from someone else in the room.

30. She's "evolved" on that prerequisite, or perhaps "mispoke", or it was a "misstatement"

The new statement is "Those transcripts will be released when Hell freezes over!" (massive cheering from Hillary supporters)
