It is imperative to understand financial influence and bias in protecting sensitive national intelligence. I'll even go a step further and state that similar security clearances and vetting should be required for all members of Congress and state executive position holders irregardless of which party they represent.

I just love selective quoting. What she clearly stated was that tax returns were trivial in comparison to the economy to the audience of reporters. Who would disagree with that? She also stated if she ran for president she would release her tax returns.
