NYT Editorial Board to Hillary “Cough Up Those Transcripts”
Are you sitting here with your mouth on the floor like we are? Yes, you read the headline correctly, the liberal leaning New York Times is calling on democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton to release the transcripts of her high paying speeches. OUCH!
The New York Times Editorial Board wrote the following:
Voters are entitled to know what Mrs. Clinton said in paid speeches to industry groups, and stonewalling on this will only damage her.
“Everybody does it,” is an excuse expected from a mischievous child, not a presidential candidate. 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.
A televised town hall on Tuesday was at least the fourth candidate forum in which Mrs. Clinton was asked about those speeches. Again, she gave a terrible answer, saying that she would release the transcripts “if everybody does it, and that includes the Republicans.”
