Hillary Clinton told bankers behind closed doors that she favored "open trade and open borders" and said Wall Street executives were best-positioned to help reform the U.S. financial sector, according to transcripts of her private, paid speeches leaked Friday.Among the emails was a compilation of excerpts from Clinton's paid speeches in 2013 and 2014 . It appeared campaign staff had read all Clinton's speeches and identified passages that could be potentially problematic for the candidate if they were to become public.One excerpt put Clinton squarely in the free-trade camp, a position she has retreated on significantly during the 2016 election. In an April 2013 speech to the National Multifamily Housing Council, Clinton said politicians must balance "both a public and a private position" while making deals.The speech transcripts were produced under an agreement Clinton routinely imposed on any organization that hired her to speak.
