What Is Hillary Hiding Re: Her Speech to Goldman Sachs?

"There should be no bank too big to fail and no individual too big to jail,"
-Hillary Clinton in January 17, 2016 debate
(And repeated last night)

I watched about half of the (replay) of CNN's debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. To me, it was like watching a debate between Stalin and Lenin as to who is the more communist. At any rate, there was one part that I thought was most important. Moderator Dana Bash tried three times-three times- to ask Hillary Clinton if she would consent to having the transcripts of her $250,000 speech to Goldman Sachs made public. Three times, Hillary dodged the question talking about other people releasing transcripts of their speeches to Wall Street firms (Sanders has none to release) and Sanders releasing his tax returns. This was in the midst of the two debating about who would be toughest in breaking up banks.

Over the past 25 years there have so many things that Hillary Clinton has fought to keep hidden, so this is just one more. How transparently dishonest and conniving can one person be?

I don't trust her at all... but whether she's broken the law is another question. This is a capitalist country after all. Its not illegal to be cozy with big banks and make large fees from private speeches to Goldman Sachs. Its called free enterprise. I'm voting for the socialist, although he's a weak right-wing social democrat. He doesn't have any secret speeches to release, because he's never been invited to those forums or offered those kinds of honoraria.
