In Clinton's Wall Street Paid Speeches, She "Struck An Amicable Tone" When She Talked About The Financial Crisis And "Thanked The Audience For What They Had Done For The Country …" "She didn't often talk about the financial crisis, but when she did, she almost always struck an amicable tone, according to these people. In some cases, she thanked the audience for what they had done for the country, the people said." (Anupreeta Das And James Grimaldi, "Hillary Clinton's Wall Street Talks Were Highly Paid, Friendly," The Wall Street Journal, 2/11/16)
