Clinton raking in donations from big banks while claiming to be for greater financial regulation
Steve Watson | Prison Planet
Hillary Clinton used the 9/11 attacks as justification for accepting huge donations from Wall Street fat cats for a SECOND TIME this week in an interview about her Presidential campaign.
In the appearance on CBS with Charlie Rose, Hillary invoked 9/11 once again when confronted by Rose on close connections with the financial mafia.
Rose asked if Clinton believes she has “suffered from the fact that” some say she is “too close to Wall Street.”
Clinton shot back “So yes, do I know people? And did I help rebuild after 9/11? Yes, I did.”
It seems that Hillary’s default position on the matter is to just blurt out “9/11” and hope that any detractors shut up about it.
The fact is that while Clinton preaches about standing “for a lot of regulation on big banks and on the financial services sector,” and drones on about wealth inequality, she is raking it in from wealthy Wall St. donors.
Clinton has received sizeable donations from officials at Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase to name a few.
But never mind, because 9/11.
Clinton told Rose that she “represented everybody from the dairy farmers, you know, to the fishermen.”
She attempted to put distance between her campaign and the banksters who are funding it.
While admitting to taking donations from them, she stated “But that has nothing to do with my positions. Anybody who thinks that they can influence me on that ground doesn’t know me very well.”
Hillary also invoked 9/11 last month during the Democratic debate in an effort to offset talk about her Financial sector backing.
