"Whatever Secretary Clinton may or may not have said behind closed doors on Wall Street, I am determined to implement the agenda of the Democratic Party platform which was agreed upon by her campaign," he said in a statement.

"Among other things, that agenda calls for breaking up the largest financial institutions in this country, re-establishing Glass-Steagall and prosecuting those many Wall Street CEOs who engaged in illegal behavior."

The newly leaked emails show Clinton's staff discussing excerpts from her various paid speeches in which she admits being "far removed" from the middle class and saying that politicians need both a public and private position on policy.
