did know him. >> the "new york times" editorial board, which endorsed clinton, is now calling for her to release the transcripts of her paid wall street speeches. sentiments that her campaign rival bernie sanders agrees with. >> i have talked about the fact that hillary clinton has received many millions of dollars from wall street for her campaign and for her super pac. she's received very large speaker's fees from goldman sachs. i think those are important issues. and by the way, i "new york times" editorial, urging secretary clinton to release the transcripts of the speeches she gave behind closed doors to wall street. >> clinton responded hitting back against her critics. >> the real question underneath this is -- okay. if you take money fro wall street. >> right. >> can you regulate wall street? >> right. >> well, barack obama took more money from wall street than any candidate who's ever run for
president, turned around, passed an signed the dodd/frank bill. i think you should be judged on what you've done, and -- and i -- i'm more than happy to put my record against bernie sanders. if you look what caused the great recession, a bill he voted for in 2000, had a greater impact than most of the talk that we're now doing. so let's -- let's get everybody out on the same field. i feel like -- you know, i don't mind being responsive. i don't mind answering question, but at some point i want everybody to have to answer. >> right. i respect that call. can you assure the american people that you didn't say anything in those speeches that would undermine your promise to be tough on wall street and big banks? >> absolutely. absolutely. >> the full interview with hillary clinton hair airs late morning on msnbc. in other news, three people are dead and 14 others injured after a gunman opened fire at multiple locations in rural
