Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton on Sunday said she would be willing to release the texts of speeches she gave to big banks if other politicians running in the race release their behind-closed-doors transcripts.
“Let everybody who’s ever given a speech to any private group under any circumstances release them,” Clinton said on ABC’s “This Week.” “We’ll all release them at the same time.”

And we never hear of this again......
She's got to be pretty confident that will never happen.

It's another good political move on her part. She's a master at this game.
She takes the heat off herself by implicating everyone else in the same set of crimes that she has committed. Then she's able to get away with it because very few of the other candidates are interested in providing anything that can be used against them. Even if their "sins" are mild by comparison to hers.

I don't know anyone who is worth a $225,000 speaking fee let alone a $50,000 dollar speaking fee! I don't even think it's worth paying more than $50.00 a ticket for a professional sporting event or concert. Some Doctor's, Engineers, Educators and other professionals who give back more to society don't even come close to that in a yearly salary! I guess the public is to blame because we're so willing to pay an outrageous amount of money to see or hear someone with a celebrity status.
It's bad enough the public supports these outrageous ticket fees, and than they're discriminated against based upon how much they can afford to pay for a ticket. The rich get the expensive front row or box office seats and the rest are seated in the nose bleed section. A perfect example of how the upper class in a capitalistic society gets preferential treatment.
I've never supported these outrageous ticket fees. As far as Clinton is concerned, who in their right mind would turn down a $225.00 speaking fee? She and Bill probably laugh all the way to the bank! When corporations and athletic owners are willing to pay a huge amount of money, they know exactly how gullible the public is willing to support. It's pure capitalism...charge as much as the public is willing to pay in order to reap huge profits for themselves.
Perhaps it is a bit presumptuous. However, there is a very high probability that most, if not all, politicians are hiding something. Whether what they're hiding is illegal or not is the question. Some are hiding things that may simply be considered unethical. Others may be hiding things that their constituencies would find offensive, or disagree with.
Also isn't it presumptuous to assume that the other candidates are hiding anything that could somehow be used against them by Hillary?
Or is everyone crooked?
