Clinton said during a Democratic debate earlier this month she would look into releasing the transcripts of speeches she was paid six figures for before running for president. She was asked during the debate if she thought the voters had a right to know what she said in the speeches.

"I will look into it," she said.

"I don't know the status, but I will certainly look into it," she added. "But I can only repeat what is the fact, that I spoke to a lot of different groups with a lot of different constituents ... about issues that had to do with world affairs.

"So my view on this is, look at my record."

At a Democratic town hall last week, Clinton said she would be "happy to release anything I have when everybody else does the same," Politico reported. She said all other candidates had made paid speeches.
