Clinton Downplays Threats From Terrorism, Russia In 6-Figure, Secret Paid Speech

- October 10, 2016

Clinton Called Terrorism "Not A Threat To Us As A Nation" At A Closed-Door Paid Speech

In A Paid Speech Behind Closed Doors, Hillary Clinton Said Terrorism Is "Not A Threat To Us As A Nation. It Is Not Going To Endanger Our Economy Or Our Society..." CLINTON: "But make no mistake, as the recent travel alert underscores, we still face terrorism. It's not a threat to us as a nation. It is not going to endanger our economy or our society, but it is a real threat. It is a danger to our citizens here at home, and as we tragically saw in Boston, and to those living, working, and traveling abroad." (TCARRK@HillaryClinton.com, Hillary Clinton remarks to Global Business Travelers Association, 8/7/13, Email To Clinton Campaign Communications Staff, 2/8/16)

Clinton Played Down Russian Aggression Behind Closed-Doors, Saying "We Don't Believe That There Will Be A Threat From Russia

In A Paid Speech Behind Closed Doors, Clinton Said, "We Don't Believe That There Will Be A Threat From Russia." CLINTON: "I last saw [Putin] in Vladivostok where I represented President Obama in September for the Asia Pacific economic community. I sat next to him. He's an engaging and, you know, very interesting conversationalist. We talked about a lot of issues that were not the hot-button issues between us, you know, his view on missile defense, which we think is misplaced because, you know, we don't believe that there will be a threat from Russia, but we think that both Russia and the United States are going to face threats from their perimeter, either from rogue states like Iran or from terrorist groups, that's not the way he sees it." (TCARRK@HillaryClinton.com, Hillary Clinton remarks at Sanford Bernstein, 5/29/13, Email To Clinton Campaign Communications Staff, 2/8/16)

Clinton Lamely Tried To Use Abraham Lincoln To Defend Her Duplicitous Statements

Clinton Justified Her Two Faced Statements By Trying To Blame Abraham Lincoln. CBS'S MARTHA RADATZ: "This question involves WikiLeaks release of purported excerpts of Secretary Clinton's paid speeches, which she has refused to release, and one line in particular, in which you, Secretary Clinton, purportedly say you need both a public and private position on certain issues. So, Tu (ph), from Virginia asks, is it OK for politicians to be two-faced? Is it acceptable for a politician to have a private stance on issues? Secretary Clinton, your two minutes." CLINTON: "Well, right. As I recall, that was something I said about Abraham Lincoln after having seen the wonderful Steven Spielberg movie called "Lincoln." It was a master class watching President Lincoln get the Congress to approve the 13th Amendment. It was principled, and it was strategic. And I was making the point that it is hard sometimes to get the Congress to do what you want to do and you have to keep working at it. And, yes, President Lincoln was trying to convince some people, he used some arguments, convincing other people, he used other arguments. That was a great - I thought a great display of presidential leadership." (Hillary Clinton, Presidential Debate, Washington University, St. Louis, MO, 10/9/16)
