Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders gave frontrunner Hillary Clinton a piece of his mind in the most vigorous of their four presidential debates, accusing her of cozying up to Wall Street and accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars from big banks.
“The first difference is I don’t take money from big banks,” Vermont Senator Sanders said. “I don’t take money from big banks. I don’t get personal speaking fees from Goldman Sachs. I have huge doubts when people receive money from Wall Street,” he added.According to a detailed summary of Clinton’s financial and health record campaign, she received a total of $675,000, for three separate speeches to Goldman Sachs in 2013 (in South Carolina, New York and Arizona).
