Everyone gives private speeches, Clinton asserted, including her Democratic primary rival Bernie Sanders. She called him "your candidate."
Clinton gave numerous paid speeches after leaving her post at the State Department as secretary in state in 2013, including some to financial firms, large corporations and trade groups. Some of those speeches were open to the press, some were not.
Clinton was challenged earlier this month to release transcripts of some of the most exclusive gatherings, in which Clinton addressed small groups of investment bankers and others. She had said she would look into it, but her answer Thursday suggests she won't hand over anything soon.
