ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders calls on rival Hillary Clinton to release transcripts of her paid speeches to Wall Street saying maybe what "she said behind closed doors was a little bit different than," what she is saying on the campaign trail at a campaign rally in Hibbing, Minnesota. "And when the New York Times just yesterday ...said you know what it might be a good idea to release the transcript of what was said to Wall Street, maybe what she said behind closed doors was a little bit different than what you are saying to the American people, I would hope she would do that," Sanders said. "When I said it, she said she would do it of other people do it, I am prepared to release all of the transcripts I got for secret meetings in Wall Street, Here they are," he said, waving at empty space near his lectern. Clinton has defended her paid speeches to Wall Street, saying in an interview that aired on Friday that they would not soften her campaign pledges for tougher regulation. Clinton was reportedly paid millions in appearance fees after leaving the State Department. Asked whether she could assure U.S. voters that the speeches would not undermine her calls to rein in the financial industry, Clinton told MSNBC: "Absolutely." A new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows Bernie Sanders ahead of Hillary Clinton by six points nationwide, his biggest lead in the presidential race so far. The survey, released Tuesday, shows Sanders polling at 41.7 percent among 998 likely Democratic voters, while Clinton got 35.5 percent. Sanders also underscored policy differences between himself and Clinton. "My views on trade from Day One have been very very different than Secretary Clinton's when she was First Lady she was a strong supporter of NAFTA, she supported normal trade relations with China, both of those trade policies have been an unmitigated disaster." Sanders also highlighted his opposition to the war in Iraq compared with Clinton, who while she was the New York Senator, voted in favor of the war. Sanders also commented on other rivals in the Presidential race saying, "When a billionaire can buy an election, that is not democracy, that is oligarchy," he said.
