I wonder what does 'past time'means.

In a phone interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday night, Mrs. Clinton said she had kept her diagnosis a secret because “I just didn’t think it was going to be that big a deal,” and tried to shift the discussion to her Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, and his lack of transparency.

“It’s really past time for him to be held to the same standards,” she said.

This means he should have been held to the same standard already. It's past the time when it should have happened.
