I'm looking for a machine-readable repository of transcribed Presidential debates and speeches from the 2016 general election. Structured data with a common format is desirable, as well as updates for the remaining speeches before the election.

Text from the debates available as well.


The GitHub repo 2016-campaign contains

campaign speeches given by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.

[and] the text of the three presidential debates, separated by speaker, in the presidential-debates folder.

The repo owner will add speeches as the occur.
