Sanders won't call for release of Clinton's bank speech transcripts

8 years ago
The war over Wall Street between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton escalated Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," where both candidates defended their records.
Clinton repeated her accusation that Sanders and his campaign are engaged in an "artistic smear" by using innuendo against her.
Sanders, for his part, declined to join calls -- including from his own spokeswoman -- for Clinton to release transcripts of her paid speeches to big banks, but he didn't reject those calls either.
CNN's Jake Tapper asked Clinton about the implication from the Sanders campaign that Clinton changed her vote on a bankruptcy bill fifteen years ago as a senator.
"This attack by insinuation, by innuendo, is really getting old," Clinton said, arguing the Sanders campaign is "grasping at straws" to make the case she is beholden to Wall Street.
Clinton said she has a tougher plan to take on Wall Street than he does and she'd rather debate those issues.
