Sen. Bernard Sanders will release his 2014 tax returns on Friday, but his presidential primary rival Hillary Clinton still refuses to make public transcripts of high-priced speeches she gave to Goldman Sachs.

Instead, Mrs. Clinton said at Thursday night’s Democratic presidential debate that she’ll release her private speech transcripts as soon as Republicans such as Donald Trump do the same.

“Let’s set the same standard for everybody. When everybody does it, I’ll do it, OK?” she said at the Brooklyn forum, which comes just days before the April 19 New York primary.

Mrs. Clinton then blasted Mr. Sanders‘ failure to release his tax returns, but the Vermont senator said they’ll be unveiled soon.

He again said that his wife, Jane, handles the family’s taxes and has been tied up with campaign work.

“What we have always done — Jane has done them. She’s been out on the campaign trail. We will get them out,” Mr. Sanders said.

He said he will release his 2014 returns on Friday and will release earlier years in the coming weeks.
