17 days after promising to ‘look into it,’ the transcripts of Hillary Clinton’s speeches to Goldman Sachs Investment Firm were leaked online today by an unknown source.
Posted onto the file sharing site PasteBin, most of the speeches texts were innocuous. Clinton spoke glowingly about Goldman Sachs, how much money they make and what a great friend they are to her SuperPAC.
However, one quote from Hillary has drawn particular fire from observers:
“And so I say to you Goldman Sachs, I am on your side. Do not pay attention to the noise of the political season, I will always remember your support and put your priorities first, above all else. Thank you.’
Clinton received $675,000 for three speeches she made to Goldman Sachs in 2013.
“I remember feeling like she worked for us,” said one former Goldman Sachs employee who was at the event in Arizona in October of 2013. “Now she’s telling people what they want to hear so she can get elected. But back then it sounded to us like she was our employee.”
At another speech to Goldman Sachs in New York in 2013, Hillary Clinton spoke about how the banks were not to blame for the financial crisis and that she would make sure that the American people would always bail them out “no matter what.”
“It felt like a generous tongue bath from a loving puppy,” said one person who attended that speech. “I can understand why she wouldn’t want anyone to see the text of these speeches, it makes her look really corrupt.”
Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon confirmed that the leaked transcripts are authentic.
“It doesn’t matter what the truth is, Hillary doesn’t work for Goldman Sachs,” said Fallon. “She just takes millions in contributions from Wall Street in exchange for no future favors whatsoever. This is Democracy, folks.”
The Clinton campaign commented further that the leaked transcripts will have zero effect on who becomes president because the entire news media has been paid to run wall-to-wall coverage of Clinton and Trump until one of them is elected.
