Donald Trump cited apparent excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s past closed-door speeches, contained in emails leaked by WikiLeaks, but he twisted those excerpts in some cases.
Hillary Clinton falsely claimed she is “the only candidate” in the presidential campaign “on either side” who has been attacked in advertising funded by “Wall Street financiers and hedge fund managers.”
This time Bernie Sanders cherry-picks the facts about the auto bailout of 2008 and 2009 — which has become a point of contention between Sanders and Hillary Clinton in the final days before the Michigan presidential primary.
Hillary Clinton exaggerated when she claimed Bernie Sanders “took about $200,000 from Wall Street firms” through the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. The DSCC did provide about $200,000 to support Sanders’ 2006 Senate race, but a small percentage of its contributions came from “Wall Street.”
