Did Hillary tell Wall Street she would weaken Dodd-Frank?
As the clamor grows louder for Hillary Clinton to release her Wall Street transcripts, numerous journalists have been trying to ferret out what she thinks is so damaging she would rather hold them back and pay the political price for her lack of transparency.
A fairly typical example is this morning’s Inquisitr article ‘To Release Or Not To Release: Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street Speeches Land Her In A Predicament She Hasn’t Known Before.’ It cites Politico’s original reporting that interviewed attendees at the events.
But it doesn’t cite the part that jumped out at me: hints that Hillary promised Wall Street she would roll back Dodd-Frank, the banking reform bill she touts on the campaign trail as proof President Obama wasn’t in Wall Street’s pocket despite taking their campaign donations:
At another speech to Goldman and its big asset management clients in New York in 2013, Clinton spoke about how it wasn’t just the banks that caused the financial crisis and that it was worth looking at the landmark 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law to see what was working and what wasn’t.
