2. She gave at least 40 speeches, extolling the wonders of these "trade agreements",

 

and called the TPP the "gold standard" in her latest book.

Anything else she says, at this point, is just campaign bullshit pandering.

3. Head of Chamber of Commerce says she will support TPP

 

After elected.

LINK: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-naiman/chamber-of-commerce-lobby_b_9104096.html

In an interview from Davos with Bloomberg TV on January 20, Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue, a top lobbyist for the pro-corporate-power Trans-Pacific Partnership [TPP] agreement, assured viewers that if Hillary Clinton wins the Presidential election, Clinton will support the TPP, even though she opposes it now.

Reporting on the interview, Inside U.S. Trade noted:

The Chamber president said he expected Hillary Clinton would ultimately support the TPP if she becomes the Democratic nominee for president and is elected. He argued that she has publicly opposed the deal chiefly because her main challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), has also done so. “If she were to get nominated, if she were to be elected, I have a hunch that what runs in the family is you get a little practical if you ever get the job,” he said.
