NYT to Clinton: Release paid speaking transcripts

by Mark Hensch  |  published on February 26, 2016

The New York Times published an editorial Thursday arguing that Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton must release transcripts of her paid speeches.

“’Everybody does it’ is an excuse expected from a mischievous child, not a presidential candidate,” the editorial said. “But that is Hillary Clinton’s latest defense for making closed-door, richly-paid speeches to big banks, which many middle-class Americans still blame for their economic pain, and then refusing to release the transcripts.

“Voters have every right to know what Mrs. Clinton told these groups. Transcripts of speeches that have been leaked seem pretty innocuous. By refusing to release them all, especially the bank speeches, Mrs. Clinton fuels speculation about why she’s stonewalling.”

The New York Times also dismissed Clinton’s explanation that she is awaiting similar moves from other White House hopefuls from both political parties.

“Her conditioning her releases on what the Republicans what might do is mystifying,” the editorial said. “Republicans make no bones about their commitment to Wall Street deregulation and tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. Mrs. Clinton is laboring to convince struggling Americans that she will rein in big banks, despite taking their money.

    OK on top of PAY for FAVORS by FOREIGN Governments and Companies… E mail that SMELL of TREASON.. and the BODY bags…What else does she have to do to be INDICTED???

    Kick BHO the Imam in the GROIN???

    She has gotten away with “stonewalling” over her entire scandal filled life. Benghazi being only the latest one where the deaths of people happened. She and Slick Willy have left a very long list of dead bodies behind beginning in Arkansas.

    Hillary doesn’t want the general public to know how much she kisses Wall Street financial firm’s a _ _ es while collecting those one hour speech fees (future payoffs) for $250,000 to $400,000 each. Then Bill comes by and collects that much or more from the same firms. Why pay a treasonist anything and why pay a serial adulterer, and alleged rapist, anything? Of course most of the Democratic voting block is so ignorant they won’t be reading about this (unless someone reads it to them) and in general they want the welfare train to continue as is even though it destroyed their age group and will do the same for their children and grandchildren. Some learn harder than others.

    Everybody just let the field blow Trump out , when the “birther” issue came up. Now everyone takes the same stance he did, back then. Now he’s running against another criminal. People, don’t be so damned blind.

  • Texas Belle

    She has stonewalled and lied her way through the last 50 years; why would she change now?

  • I Seigel

    Trump should release his tax returns, too. Just like Romney and all the candidates before him. Hilliary, Bernie, too.

  • Gary Smith

    Maybe the times finally sees what bs artist she is

    • Ray

      Really, you can keep doing criminal thing in your life but YOU will get evenly in the END. Now it is time to INDICTED the b…h.

  • Danny S.

    Every where Hillary goes while in government .Which by the way is many years. She has had many prestiges positions with one common result. She has never accomplished anything except making a huge mess out of Libya.
    She barks like a big dog but the only things that we can say has been a success is the Clinton Foundation. The list of donors are suspect and many ended up with very controversial deals that needed state department approval.
    We might never find out about her double dealings because she used a personnel server that many say was so no one could see what was on it.She destroyed 30,000 emails which in reality belonged to US citizens and possible evidence of foul play.
    So even a blind man can see that Hillary feels she is above the law and has used her position to enrich her need for power and greed.

  • JB

    I say it every time. Clinton is a liar, corrupt and no
    Way worthy to no our leader. Get smart people
    We don’t need anther Clinton nor a democrat. They had their chance and blew it big time.

  • hangman57

    Hillary should release her transcripts , to the Wall Street Bankers she gave speeches too ! Also release all of your e-mails to the FBI ,needs for their Criminal investigation against you . Hillary may get indicted before she gets her nomination !

    • I Seigel

      Cruz should release all his dealings with Goldman-Sachs, too. After all, his wife is a VP of Goldman. His campaign financings would be interesting to reveal. Lots of shady doings there and bogus claims by Cruz that they sold or pawned most of their possessions to finance his campaign. BS!

      • Texas Belle

        How do you know there are shady dealings and that their claims are bogus? Where is your proof?

        • I Seigel

          Why be suspicious of Hillary’s speeches? Where’s your proof?

          • Ray

            I would say it is in the emails that were DELETED. Which in the JUSTICE system is called OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. Not qualified to be PRESIDENT WITHTHIS CHARGE

          • I Seigel

            Just because YOU make a “charge” of obstruction of justice doesn’t make it so. Where do you practice law? Where did you get your law degree? Maybe you’re just one of those mesothelioma ambulance-chasers?

        • Dons62

          It’s called “common sense”, lady.

    • Ray

      I am hearing bit and pieces about this. HOPE it happens, it has to HAPPEN we can’t have this women as President.
      Got to blame the damn MSM on not COVERING this. Just look how she won in South Carolina, the people across this country need to NO about this CRIMINAL
      BUT THE WORD IS NOT OUT THEIR TO A LOT OF PEOPLE TO SEE OR THEY JUST DONT CARE.

  • edhenson2010

    If she has nothing to hide, there is no reason why she should not give the text of the speeches. Knowing this evil woman she has something to hide!

  • Mathematical certainty

    As if any comment, allegation, or proof that this witch is such a unscrupulous lying fraud will change the one-digit-IQ’s of those who will vote for it.

  • DanaC

    The last time I checked, the New York Times were not part of the election process! They need to just report the news. They are barely in business that is why they interferes with Everything! Who buys their subscriptions anyway?

    • I Seigel

      They sell a LOT of newspapers and digital subscriptions. They’re one of the biggest in the world. Just because YOU aren’t interested in them doesn’t make them insignificant.

      • DanaC

        I don’t give a toot how many subscriptions they sale. The New York Times need to stay the Hell out of the presidential race!!! That newspaper also do tasteless articles on Bernie Sanders in the past. Just remember that because they are bound to do it again!!

        • I Seigel

          I would assume you feel that way about ALL the press. FOX, Breitbart, MSNBC, Drudge, Rush. Or do you only think the NY Times needs to stay the Hell out?

          • DanaC

            Absolutely goes for all news media!! Stay the Hell out of the election process!!

  • Kendall Lawyer

    possibly one the funniest things I have ever read: the Times expecting hillary to be honest and transparent. good luck with that.

    • maxx

      She and Bill are pathological liars so when she just recently said “I don’t believe I have ever lied to the American people”, she actually believes it. People like them would easily pass a polygraph test with flying colors. Same is true of Obama.

  • Todd Alfonsi

    Both sides do it, at the end of the day they are” in on it” together sometimes.She wont release what she said because it will show she gave no words of value, just her up there running her mouth, which she does well. There for, questioning the huge amount of pay for worthless words, no expert advice, no consultant level of advice, just her praising the people who gave her the cash,the so called speech is a legal technicality.

  • Russ

    I can’t wait to see this coyote ugly piece of pig excrement in her brand new orange pant suit. Clinton for PRISON 2016!!!

    • Ray

      Something has to happen here soon, time is going by. It won’t be long the NOMINATION will be here. Let’s get the show on the road, get it done FBI.
      We can’t let this slip by America!!!!..

  • Daniel Graves

    Politics have become a disgraceful endeavor. They have so little contact with the voters that they become corrupt and greedy. How on earth could Hillary have earned this money with speaches?

    • Ray

      By making DEALS, why do you think she had the HOME BREW SERVER, so the State Dept didn’t see her operation that her and Huma Abelin were doing. Deleted 30,000 emails, which probable were the DEALS they were making. UNBELIEVABLE!!!.. It makes me sick to even LOOK at this SCUMBAG,LYING POS of a women. I have got to STOP before I say something that is not nice.

  • Alex Alexander

    Clinton charges $2700 for her autograph; $27,000 for a photo with her; hundreds of thousands for speaking events. This is how she and her illustrious husband fill their coffers with billions of dollars through the “Clinton Initiative” and line their own pockets.

    • Kendall Lawyer

      I have a picture of me with Bill from 1991/1992. Did not have to pay for it.

      • Alex Alexander

        I was referring to Hillary at her latest fundraiser

        • DanaC

          Alex Alexander all of them have fund raisers. You really need to stop whining and grow up!!

    • I Seigel

      That’s also how retired baseball players and football players, and Star Trek stars, “fill their coffers”. Nothing illegal about profiting from your name or stardom. That’s the American Way!
      What do you think Reagan did after retiring? And the Bushes? Only George HW ever did any social work after retiring. The other Republican ex-officeholders just played golf, “consulted” and cashed in. Watch what Dr Ben does after he “suspends” his campaign. His speaking engagements and book tours will net him millions.

      • Texas Belle

        Reagan did nothing after retiring; he was ill with Alzheimers.

    • DanaC

      Alex Alexander I wish somebody would pay me that much for my speeches! Don’t hate on her for being popular and intelligent! All candidates get paid for speeches. Unfortunately not all of them are considered worth what she is worth. Not her fault!!

  • grampi

    Regarding “hellary” and “o’trauma” (note no capitalization). What we know brings questions about what is kept from us. It’s what we don’t know of people with little or no concern for the backbone of our nation. I fear for our safety and freedoms because of these folk’s quest for money and power.

  • Bernie Lounds

    Trump and the NYTs should be looking into what Rubio does with all the money he gets from the Senate arms control task force since there is no record of what this outfit composed of Republicans and Democrats do with the $700,000 the steal from the people every year.

  • jim

    GO TRUMP GO

  • jim

    Hillary for Jail

    • hangman57

      How can this B————-! Run for President with a FBI Criminal Investigation going on ! into her crimes against America !

      • Ray

        I don’t understand it myself why it is taking so long to INDICT this CRIMINAL that is out there REALLY WINNING votes to be President. Just goes to show you their is NO more JUSTICE in this country. What a SHAME to see this happen. That’s why we all got to get Mr. Trump in, just saw where Mr. Jeff Sessions has endorsed Mr. Trump, very nice man big Tea Party backer. We have GOT to WIN in Nov.
        HILLARY FOR PRISON. 2016

        • maxx
