What Hillary Clinton told Wall Street behind closed doors


Bernie Sanders has found a sweet spot in the armament of Hillary Clinton. That being the obscene amounts of money she is receiving from those who want stuff in return. Oh yes, that is how it works, and Hillary cackling away that it is not so is simply false. Hillary will be dogged for a while about releasing the transcripts, so I have her video response which has changed from “I will look into it” to go to hell essentially. If she tells us she doesn’t have them, that will be a lie. So here we go:

Former secretary routinely demanded a stenographer at paid speeches

But now back to the heart of the matter:

“Enough is enough. If you’ve got something to say, say it directly,” Clinton said the next day, effectively daring Sanders to accuse her of being bought and paid for. She also said she would “look into” releasing the transcripts of her paid speeches. But by Friday morning, her campaign seemed to indicate that full disclosure was not forthcoming. “I don’t think voters are interested in the transcripts,” Joel Benenson, Clinton’s pollster.

Well actually voters are interested, and fortunately, Politico has an account of one recent address which underscores Sanders’ concerns. “Clinton offered a message that the collected plutocrats found reassuring, declaring that the banker-bashing so popular within both political parties was unproductive and indeed foolish,” Politico writes. “[She struck] a soothing note on the global financial crisis, she told the audience, in effect: We all got into this mess together, and we’re all going to have to work together to get out of it.” Here’s more:

What the bankers heard her to say was just what they would hope for from a prospective presidential candidate: Beating up the finance industry isn’t going to improve the economy—it needs to stop. And indeed Goldman’s Tim O’Neill, who heads the bank’s asset management business, introduced Clinton by saying how courageous she was for speaking at the bank. (Brave, perhaps, but also well-compensated: Clinton’s minimum fee for paid remarks is $200,000).

Certainly, Clinton offered the money men—and, yes, they are mostly men—at Goldman’s HQ a bit of a morale boost. “It was like, ‘Here’s someone who doesn’t want to vilify us but wants to get business back in the game,’” said an attendee. “Like, maybe here’s someone who can lead us out of the wilderness.”

Right. Wall Street is looking at Washington “with complete revulsion.” Except when it comes to Clinton. Who offers “a way out of the wilderness.”

Needless to say, Politico’s account only serves to underscore the notion that a vote for Hillary is a vote for business as usual inside the Beltway. A ballot for America’s entrenched political aristocracy, and a sure fire ticket to more of the same.

    Charlie Rich ‘Behind Closed Doors’ doesn’t fit well here
    Green Door ’56 by Jim Lowe is better.

    What she forgets is the fact that she is campaigning against Wall Street while taking their money, and that is where her problem lies because it shows her hypocrisy on this issue whereas her “Republican opponents” are not campaigning against Wall Street. If she cannot see the difference (and I know she understands it but hopes her supporters do not) than she really is out of touch with her voters.

      and it is not like it is just a little money, but one big boat load of it which is impossible to spin away.

    Nice post. Hillary is a dirty pol, filthy with corporate money. Only a Clinton Crime Syndicate co-conspirator with her reputation would try to pass herself off as a progressive and still maintain a straight face.

      Thanks. She is starting to look a little shop worn these days. The facade slips at times. The ole vast wing conspiracy note is starting to sing left.

    Hillary may well lose the nomination. Too much evidence of crookery is piling up.

      Agree. But we best be careful of what we wish for. A Biden/Warren ticket could be a rough one. Though the Hillary supporters may be angry enough to stay home.

      We can only hope that Bernie and his supporters will stick it to her. She was promised the WH if she backed off and waited after teh won was crowned. There will be blood.
