Baier to DNC Chair: When Will Hillary Release Her Goldman Sachs Speeches?
Hillary Clinton is calling for Donald Trump to release his tax returns in the name of transparency.
"When you’re running for president and you become the nominee, that’s kind of expected," said Clinton at a recent rally, adding that presidential candidates have released their returns for the last four decades.
"So you’ve got to ask yourself, why doesn’t he want to release them?" Clinton said.
Bret Baier asked DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz whether, in the name of transparency, Clinton should release the transcripts of paid speeches that she made to Goldman Sachs.
Clinton gave six paid speeches in 2015, earning nearly $1.5 million total and between $200,000-$300,000 per speech. She reportedly made 94 appearances before corporate and special interests from 2013 to 2015, earning nearly $22 million.
Wasserman Schultz countered that Clinton would release the transcripts "if everyone who has given paid speeches releases those speeches."
She argued that it's a "matter of equity." Wasserman Schultz said the Clintons have released 33 years of tax returns, while Trump has released none.
"Donald Trump is the most opaque, non-transparent presidential candidate who has ever run," she argued.
Baier then brought up a possible Fox News debate between Clinton and Bernie Sanders, saying letters of invitation have gone out to the candidates.
"We're still working through that process," she answered.

Kirsten Powers reacted on Outnumbered, calling on Clinton to release the transcripts and wondering why Clinton is being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for a speech.
"What are you saying that's worth $260,000?" said Powers, adding that it looks like "bribery."
"She's not even a former president. Why is she getting so much money for these speeches?"
Hegseth said it seems clear that it was a "pay to play" situation.
"They believed she would be the leader of the free world. They were paying forward in advance for access in the future," he said.
