It has been just over 231 days since Democratic nominee Clinton promised to look into releasing the transcripts of her paid Goldman Sachs speaking arrangements.

Debate moderators asked Clinton in Durham, North Carolina, if she would release the transcripts from her Goldman Sachs speaking events. “I will look into it. I don’t know the status, but I will certainly look into it,” Clinton replied, reports CBS News.

It has been 231 days since Clinton made that promise to the American public, and thus far we have seen zero results.

Clinton received over $3 million dollars for speaking events by Goldman Sachs, CBS reports. In fact, Clinton got $675,000 from just three Goldman speaking arrangements.

In addition to her promise to look into the arrangements, Clinton told the American people the very same night that they should just “look at my record.” Well, let’s do just that.

From 2013 to 2015, Clinton gave 92 speeches, according to CNN Money. Her standard speaking fee is $225,000, a figure over four times the median household income in the United States. From those 92 speeches, Clinton racked in $21.6 million in just two years.

On that same debate stage, Clinton proclaimed to the audience and viewers that she wants to “reign in the excesses of Wall Street,” according to CBS. This is an interesting assertion, seeing that Clinton has taken over $1,835,000 from just three Wall Street banks alone over the course of her political career.

Also, Hillary Clinton has taken in roughly three times the amount of donations from hedge funds as Barack Obama did in ’08. (RELATED: Clinton Takes In THREE Times As Much Hedge Fund Money As Barrack Obama In ’08)
