Discussion about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton'sstance on financial regulation has been renewed as WikiLeaks revealed thousandsof emails that are purportedly from the account of her campaign chairman, John Podesta.
Various excerpts that WikiLeaks claims are from Clinton's paidspeeches, dating mainly from 2013 and 2014, appear in a Jan. 25,2016, email from campaign research director Tony Carrk to Podesta and others. Theseexcerpts include references to how financial reform could come from the industryitself in the wake of the financial crisis.
"I think that there's a lot that could have been avoidedin terms of both misunderstanding and really politicizing what happened with greatertransparency, with greater openness on all sides," Clinton supposedly toldattendees at a Goldman Sachs-sponsored alternative investments conference in October2013.
The campaign did not confirm or deny the authenticity of themessages, accordingto mediareports,which also suggest that the text of Clinton's speeches show a softer stance on WallStreet than what she has espoused while campaigning for the presidency.
