VIDEO: Forceful New Ad Calls For Clinton To Release Her Speech Transcripts

Today Future45 released a powerful new ad that ensures Secretary Clinton’s lack of transparency will continue to get attention. Hillary Clinton wants people to stop talking about her stonewalling, yet until Clinton releases her speech transcripts the clamor will not cease.

Future45’s ad highlights the central question on this key issue; the American people deserve to know what Clinton said to Wall Street as she was cashing their huge checks. Sources who attended speeches Clinton gave to Goldman Sachs have already said Clinton “sounded more like a Goldman Sachs managing director,” and that her remarks made her “look like an ally of the firm.”

Even while Clinton continues to hide her full remarks, these comments are troubling by themselves. The New York Times liberal editorial board understands that, saying that the American people have a “legitimate” interest in Clinton’s speeches:

“Public interest in these speeches is legitimate, and it is the public — not the candidate — who decides how much disclosure is enough. By stonewalling on these transcripts Mrs. Clinton plays into the hands of those who say she’s not trustworthy and makes her own rules. Most important, she is damaging her credibility among Democrats who are begging her to show them that she’d run an accountable and transparent White House.”

Future45’s new ad is an important step toward holding Clinton accountable for her lack of transparency.
