The democratic debate on April 14th 2016 was indeed interesting and I quote the exchanges that Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton had with regard to Wall-Street:
“When asked to bring up an example of how Clinton has been swayed by donations from Wall Street, Sanders quickly pivoted to well-worn criticism of her paid speeches for Goldman Sachs. ‘Secretary Clinton was busy giving speeches to Goldman Sachs for $225,000 a speech,’ Sanders said before digressing to his calls for breaking up the biggest banks in the country. ...
Weak sauce, said Clinton. ‘He cannot come up with any example because there is no example,’ Clinton said. ‘I stood up against the behaviors of the banks when I was a senator. I called them out on their mortgage behavior.’
Sanders then got sarcastic. ‘They must have been crushed by this,’ he quipped before once again bringing up the speeches. ‘They must have been very very upset by what you did.’”[i]
And I was doing my research and was astounded to find this video on the internet and I could NOT believe what Elizabeth Warren has said in this Video...Take a look and if INDEED this VIDEO is a true one (which it seems like from the looks of it), then, we have Elizabeth Warren providing the example that Hillary Clinton asked (Bernie Sanders) for at the debate in New York on April 14th 2016. This is to set the record straight!
As Elizabeth Warren notes in the Video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7ZnapWoG6E&feature=youtu.be, see from the 2:50 on the video timeline) and I quote (from timeline 2:50 of the Video):
“Elizabeth Warren: One of the first bills that came up after she was Senator Clinton was the Bankruptcy Bill. This is a bill like a vampire that will not die. There is a lot of money behind it
Interviewer: Bill, her husband had vetoed it!
Elizabeth Warren: Her husband had vetoed it, very much at her urge!
Elizabeth Warren: She voted in favour!
Elizabeth Warren: As Senator Clinton, the “Pressures” are very different! It is a well-financed industry. A lot of people don’t realize that the industry that gave the most money to Washington over the past few years was not the OIL industry; was not Pharmaceuticals; it was Consumer Credit Products. Those are the people, the Credit Card Companies have been giving money and they have influenced her
Interviewer: They have just got hold of the Senator - This line is not clear
Elizabeth Warren: She has taken money from the groups and what is the point? She worries about them as a constituency...
Interviewer: So, what does this mean for millions of people out there?
The Video Continues...”
Go on and take a look for yourself and I just could not believe my eyes...This is why, as Bernie Sanders has been asking for a long time now, it is INDEED imperative for Hillary Clinton to immediately release transcripts of her speech to Goldman Sachs...
