Clinton Lies To Reporter About Trans-Pacific Partnership
Today at a press conference in Maryland, Hillary Clinton told a reporter she felt comfortable commenting on the Trans-Pacific Partnership while not commenting on Keystone because she never worked on TPP:
Clinton to me on why she comments on TPP but not Keystone: "I did not work on TPP. I advocated for a multi-national trade agreement…"

This is a flat out lie! Not only did Clinton call TPP “the gold standard in trade agreements,” before avoiding taking a position during her presidential campaign, but she pushed for the agreement at least 45 times, as CNN reported in June.
Clinton’s decision to re-write history on her work on trade, as well as her excuse to take no position on the Keystone pipeline, provide more evidence that she will say or do anything to get elected.
