Hillary Clinton’s Top 7 Famous Lies — Does the Truth Matter?

#4 – BEING DEAD BROKE

In an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, Clinton, when asked about her multi-million dollar earnings, claimed that when she and Bill left the White house, they were “dead broke.” She went on to say they “really struggled” to “put together mortgages for,” and notice the plural here, “houses.” Not one house — houses.

Politifact, a left-leaning fact check organization, rendered this verdict on Clinton’s claim:

A few weeks before they left the White House, the Clintons were able to muster a cash down payment of $855,000 and secure a $1.995 million mortgage. This hardly fits the common meaning of “dead broke.” We rate the claim Mostly False.
