Because That's What Leaders Do

There's a NYT editorial asking Hillary Clinton to produce the transcripts of her speeches to Goldman Sachs. When previously asked to do this, she replied:
I am happy to release anything I have when everybody else does the same, because every other candidate in this race has given speeches to private groups.
Because that's what leaders do, wait for everyone else to do something first, then do it.

Her refusal to release the transcripts just makes it all look sketchier. More than what she said to them, I'd like to know how much time before/after the speeches she spent with them. How much opportunity did they have to tell her what they'd like in return for paying her $225k per speech?
