Hillary Clinton struggled Wednesday night through an answer about the large paychecks she received from the investment bank Goldman Sachs for several speeches, arguing they would not corrupt her judgment when it comes to regulating the finance industry. During a CNN town-hall event Wednesday night, moderator Anderson Cooper asked Clinton whether she had used poor judgment by accepting $675,000 from Goldman Sachs for three speeches. The Democratic presidential front-runner said she was simply following the footsteps of past secretaries of state. “I don’t know. That’s what they offered,” she said. “Every secretary of state that I know has done that.” When Cooper asked how she thought the speeches would appear during a presidential campaign, Clinton suggested she hadn’t thought about such implications because she wasn’t sure whether she would run for president.
