Clinton surrogate: I think Hillary will release Goldman Sachs transcripts
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), a surrogate for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, said on Friday that she expects the Democratic front-runner will release transcripts of speeches she has given to Goldman Sachs.
In an interview with CNN, Gillibrand was asked if she would release the transcripts if she were in Clinton’s shoes and also if she believed that Clinton should make the transcripts public.
“I think she will. I think she’s been clear that she’s going to,” Gillibrand said. “And yes I would. I post my taxes online; I was one of the first senators to do that. And so I like transparency and accountability, and I know Hillary does as well.”
Clinton said in February that she will “look into” releasing the transcripts. She has faced increasing pressure to do so from The New York Times editorial board, her opponent Bernie Sanders and even a conservative super-PAC.
