WikiLeaks Releases Clinton Speeches To Goldman Sachs, Close Relationship Between Candidate And Firm Evident?
Julian Assange´s organization WikiLeaks released three transcripts of Hillary Clinton´s paid speeches to Goldman Sachs on Saturday, in which it was shown how she avoided any kind of criticism of Wall Street, examining the causes to the 2008 financial crisis. The transcripts, all from 2013, include speeches and question-and-answer sessions with Clinton at a Builders and Innovators Summit.
Clinton´s Image Could Be Damaged Further
Many political analysts and strategists have said previously that this information could be extremely harmful to the Democratic Nominee, since it represents a direct link with the financial institutions that people have strongly criticized in the last years. In fact, Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders pushed for the release of Clinton´s speeches at Goldman Sachs, claiming that was too close to Wall Street to be an effective overseer on its excesses if elected, as reported by CNET.

Although no one has confirmed nor denied the authenticity of the speeches, Clinton's team has accused Russia's government of hacking Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's emails, and the Obama administration has blamed Moscow for breaches affecting U.S. political groups.
"There is no getting around it: Donald Trump is cheering on a Russian attempt to influence our election through a crime reminiscent of Watergate but on a more massive scale. We're witnessing another effort to steal private campaign documents in order to influence an election," a Clinton campaign spokesman Glen Caplin told to CNN.
WikiLeaks Will Keep Publishing Delicate Documents
In previous publications, WikiLeaks released emails that showed Clinton´s intention of facing Donald Trump instead of any other Republican nominee, because that could be her only chance of being president, according to Podesta. Also, the leaks showed how the campaign chairman told her to stop criticizing Bernie Sanders during the primaries, since his voters could be a great support in the future.
Julian Assange told during a press conference on October 4 that his non-profit organization would be publishing all the documents related to the U.S. presidential election every week for the next 10 weeks, promising that all of these would be released before the vote on November 8.
