18. Hillary hasn't been a private citizen since Arkansas.

Her actions as a lobbyist during and since her time as Secretary of State bring that part of her life directly into the public arena. Someone purporting to have the best interests of the People at heart should have no problems demonstrating that her actions and comments as a speaker represent those aims. It is indeed a fair question to ask.

If what she said to bankers, investment brokers, weapons manufacturers and international pharmaceutical companies is so innocent why has no one present at those events spoken out in detail? Surely there was nothing said that would amount to privileged comment or proprietary information. Why would anyone have a right to question her sympathies or her intentions with a speaking record and donation record like hers?

If Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, or Ted Cruz had equal success as a motivational speaker to such a set of clients wouldn't that raise similar questions about their intentions and political allies? Oh yeah, Dark Money only flows to the GOP side of the equation.
