VIDEO + COMMENTS:HILLARY Will Not Bite The Hand That Feeds Her: WALL STREET

Hillary is full of crap, she’s in the pocket of the big wall st firms. Bernie needs to point that out more often,

Hillary Clinton Made More in 12 Speeches to Big Banks Than Most of Us Earn in a Lifetime

Reader’s comment: (+12 # RMDC 2016-01-09 13:56) The irony is that these speeches are so clearly bribes. Clinton and most other politicians who do this just read the same old boiler plate to an audience that is barely listening. But the money is transferred and all appears legal and above board. Really this is a form of money laundering. These are bribes that are washed clean by a 45 minute speech.
