    The US former Secretary of State made the admission at a talk to Brazillian bank Banco Itau according to the unverified material. And she appeared to take credit for the work that went on to catch Osama Bin Laden by claiming she was part of the group which told President Barack Obama to hunt down the terrorist. The jaw dropping leak of her speeches to institutions, which she charges up to £180,000 per appearance, also appears to show that Mrs Clinton supported Wall Street banks privately over the credit crunch as she wooed them for money to run her election campaign.

    But in her most utopian address it appears the 68-year-old who has raised £414million to run her campaign for the presidency supports open borders, a position that may well cause concern amongst conservative voters. Mrs Clinton told Banco Itau, a Brazilian bank, on May 16 2013 that she had a vision of the world which appears to support her calls for "comprehensive immigration reform" in the US. She said:
    My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.
    Thousands of pages of private speeches lay bare her opinions on all manner of subjects from her opinions on China and Russia to how she could attack rival Bernie Sanders during the battle to become the Democratic nominee.

    And one of the the 2,000 leaked communications also appears to show that Mrs Clinton admits that she holds different views when wooing the public from her privately held views. But in one speech to Wall Street she said:
    If everybody’s watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.
    At a speech to Goldman Sachs Mrs Clinton, who is believed to have amassed a personal fortune of £24million through her political ties, admitted she was out of touch with the middle class. Mrs Clinton said she is now:
    Kind of far removed because the life I’ve lived and the economic, you know, fortunes that my husband and I now enjoy, but I haven’t forgotten it.
    The Chicago born former New York senator also talked in great detail about her work as Secretary of State even revealing information about the work of the CIA. *She also revealed to bankers that she was personally responsible for sending Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was killed in Libya, on the mission. Mrs Clinton also made startling admissions about her fears of her Blackberry being hacked while on her official work in China and Russia even explaining that she was not allowed to carry her handheld device.*

    But in a bizarre admission she claims that she was personally responsible in ensuring President Barack Obama instruct Navy Seals to hunt down terrorist Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks in New York, despite the work of the security services and the CIA who had been trailing the terrorist's network for years. She said:
    I was in the small group that recommended to the President that he go after bin Laden. The amount of work that was required to get a strong enough basis of information on which to plan took more than a decade. It didn’t happen because somebody walked into our embassy and said, You know, there is a suspicious compound in Abbottabad that you guys should go take a look at.
    Commenting on the veracity of the documents her spokesman Glen Caplin said:
    We are not going to confirm the authenticity of stolen documents released by Julian Assange who has made no secret of his desire to damage Hillary Clinton.
