Hillary Clinton has found it difficult to explain to voters why she has taken $675,000 from the bankers and Wall Street. This was reported by The Independent.
During the debate, she was unable to answer the question of why she received a round sum for doing a few speeches to staff of Goldman Sachs in 2014 . “I don’t know, that’s what they offered, explained Clinton. “Any Secretary of State, as far as I know, did the same thing.” She categorically rejected the suspicion of bribery: “Anybody who knows me, who thinks that they can influence me — name anything they’ve influenced me on. Just name one thing. I’m out here every day saying I’m going to shut them down. I’m going to jail them if they should be jailed”.
The publication notes that the suspicion of bribery may very well be unfounded. Hillary and her husband Bill regularly perform at public events for a fee. So, in 2013, Hillary Clinton was paid 200 thousand dollars for a public performance.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to opinion polls, is the leader among Democrats in the fight for the nomination as candidate for President of the United States.
Her main rival among Republicans is the multi-billionaire Donald trump. The United States presidential election will be held on November 8th, 2016.
