• CNN Reporter: Wall Street Knows Hillary’s ‘One of Them’

    It’s no secret: Hillary Clinton and Wall Street have cozy relationship.

    Mrs. “Dead Broke” gave two separate speeches for Goldman Sachs on October 24, 2013 and then again a week later on October 29th. Hillary bagged a cool $200,000 per speech.

    So it’s no surprise that professional politicos are talking about Hillary’s relationship with Wall Street now that she’s the likely Democratic party’s presidential nominee.

    CNN Senior Washington Correspondent Jeff Zeleny said Thursday that Wall Street bankers and donors say Hillary Clinton is “kind of one of them.”

    “She’s not scary to us yet, because we know she’s with us” Zeleny said on The Lead.

    Zeleny said Hillary Clinton’s populist, anti-Wall Street rhetoric is “Just talk” as far as big banking executives are concerned. “They hope it’s kind of just talk. It’s a wink and nod right there.”

    “The reality is, Hillary Clinton is not [at] the top of their enemies list. Elizabeth Warren is up there, even Barack Obama is higher than that,” Zeleny added. “So, I think they know that she is kind of, one of them. She was the Senator who represented their interests and what not, but the question is on left. Is this talk going to be sufficient enough for the liberals on the left?”

    “I talked to a top Wall Street lobbyist, or a Wall Street donor, excuse me, who gives money, and he said ‘we’re watching what she’s saying,” Zeleny said. “She’s not scary to us yet, because we know she’s with us.’”
