Clinton Defends $675K Payment for Speaking at Goldman Sachs

HeadlineFeb 04, 2016

Later in the town hall event, Anderson Cooper of CNN asked Hillary Clinton about her ties to Goldman Sachs.

Anderson Cooper: “One of the things that Senator Sanders points to and a lot of your critics point to is you made three speeches for Goldman Sachs. You were paid $675,000 for three speeches. Was that a mistake? I mean, was that a bad error in judgment?”

Hillary Clinton: “Look. I made speeches to lots of groups. I told them what I thought. I answered questions.”

Anderson Cooper: “But did you have to be paid $675,000?”

Hillary Clinton: “Well, I don’t know. That’s what they offered, so.”
