Hillary Says She And Bill Were ‘Dead Broke’ After White House
I guess that depends on what your definition of broke is.
Check it out:
Hillary Clinton justified the tens of millions of dollars she and husband Bill have earned giving speeches, saying that they were in dire financial straits after leaving the White House.
“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,” Clinton told ABC’s Diane Sawyer, explaining the legal fees the duo racked up during their White House stay, which stretched from 1993 to 2001.
“We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education,” said Clinton.
“You know, it was not easy,” she added.
Clinton’s interview will air Tuesday, the same day as the release of her latest memoir, “Hard Choices,” which recounts her time as U.S. secretary of state in the Obama administration. The book is seen as a warm-up to an expected 2016 presidential bid.
