At the MSNBC-moderated Democratic presidential town hall in Las Vegas, Nevada, Hillary Clinton was asked by an "everyday American" why she will not release video or transcript of her private speeches to Wall Street banks

 

He begins by asking…

"As a realtor here in Nevada I know how important the economy is to our great nation.

 

As a Democratic candidate who has delivered speeches to the largest U.S. financial institutions in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees, why are you hesitant to release transcript or audio/video recordings of those meetings to be transparent with the American people regarding the promises and assurances that you have made to the big banks?" the man asked Clinton.

To which she responded – in rote manner…

"I was the candidate who went to Wall Street before the crash. I was the candidate who went to them and said you are wrecking our economy. What you are doing with mortgages is going to bring us down.

 

I now have the most effective and comprehensive plan to deal with the threats that Wall Street poses, and I go further than Senator Sanders does because I want to go through after all the other bank bad actors.

 

The bad actors like hedge funds, the bad actors like AIG, the insurance company. Like Countrywide mortgage. I take a backseat to nobody in being very clear about what I will do to make sure Wall Street never crashes main street again. And, that you can count on."

To which the man pled…

"Secretary Clinton, I do respect you very much. In fact, only a decade ago I was a very big supporter of yourself and your husband… How can we trust that this isn't just more political rhetoric? Please just release those transcripts so that we know exactly where you stand."

How indeed…

It seems people are losing faith…
