Despite her claims, Hillary Clinton is far, far and away from being a totally transparent candidate for the office of President of the United States.
All requests for transcripts of her speeches to meetings at financial and industrial giants have been completely stonewalled. She has said that her speeches were to coach these industries into ethical behaviors. Insider reports are just the opposite. Hillary is said to have given very cozy speeches for her $225,000 per event fees. See all the other discrepancies listed in this article.

Secrecy: As Hillary Refuses to Release Speech Transcripts, New Details Emerge
With so much attention (rightfully) being paid to Hillary’s email scandal, Benghazi lies, foreign policy debacles, and domestic policy failures, other important stories and controversies often get short shrift. For instance, her opacity and dishonesty regarding the Clinton Foundation and her lucrative speeches have simmered on the back burner for months, sporadically flaring up when she’s confronted with questions about them. On Good Morning America this week, Hillary rebuffed a young Democrat who challenged her to release the transcripts of her paid speeches that reaped millions in fees in between her departure from the State Department and the start of her presidential bid:
Facing entrenched opposition and populist-tinged rhetoric from Socialist Bernie Sanders (who offered a good rejoinder to Hillary’s go-to transcripts demand), Mrs. Clinton has attempted to justify her high-dollar remarks to Wall Street firms by claiming she didn’t know she’d be running for president when she delivered them, and that she merely accepted “what they offered” in terms of compensation. No, it’s what she charged, among other demands. CNN Money reports:
The speech in 2013 was one of three Clinton made on behalf of Goldman Sachs. According to public records, Clinton gave 92 speeches between 2013 and 2015. Her standard fee is $225,000, and she collected $21.6 million dollars in just under two years. Clinton made 8 speeches to big banks, netting $1.8 million, according to a CNN analysis.
