How terrible that they had to make by living in such a shack like that! I feel soooo bad for them!
Gee, the Clintons twist truth to benefit themselves. Who knew?
$6 Billion Goes Missing at State Department
The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors.
In a special management alert made public Thursday, the State Departments Inspector General Steve Linick warned significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years.
The alert was just the latest example of the federal governments continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.
Democrats have such credulous supporters that they can create a special incongruent reality and their constituents will believe whatever they say. When Democrats say outrageous things, it’s not for the right or even the middle. It’s for their own special ed supporters.
~sob~ how awful for them~~~~ :[
Hillary’s claim they were “broke” is unbelievable at best. The Clinton’s are notorious grifters and always seem to find someone to pay them. Bill and Hillary haven’t ever been “poor folks”.
So when they left office (co presidents remember) billy got 201K a year plus the transition aid, shrillary was elected to the senate 2001 and pulled 145K. They had no medical expenses because we paid them and those figures don’t count the outrageous speaking fees and royalties for books nobody bought. Yep, poor babies. FOAD clintoons!
Oh look, an online trainer for Clintonian politics-
99.9% of low information voters will believe her...
Old link on how the Clintons left the WH originally.
Excerpts from a newspaper article back in 2001....
WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton say they’ll be happy to return the fancy sofas, rattan chairs and other furnishings they took from the White House if it turns out that the gifts were meant to dress up the executive mansion for future presidents too.
“All of these items were considered gifts to us,” Mrs. Clinton, now a Democratic senator from New York, said Monday in Rochester, New York. “That’s what the permanent record of the White House showed. ... But if there is a different intent, we will certainly honor the intention of the donor.”
The White House curator’s office is working with the Clintons to clarify any confusion about whether the items the Clintons took were personal gifts or items that were supposed to stay, White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said.
In a statement, the Clintons said each of the gifts they accepted were identified by the White House gift office as a present to them. They said none of the gifts they took, including some $23,000 worth of household furnishings in question, was on a curator’s list of official White House property.
“Gifts did not leave the White House without the approval of the White House usher’s and curator’s offices,” the Clintons said in the statement that addressed the latest sour note to follow the former president and his wife out of the executive mansion. “Of course, if the White House now determines that a cataloging error occurred ... any item in question will be returned.”
The Washington Post quoted two donors in Monday’s editions as saying the furnishings they gave were intended for the White House, not the Clintons. They were Steve Mittman of New York, whose donation was valued at $19,900; and Joy Ficks of Cincinnati, who gave $3,650 worth.
And in its editions Tuesday, the newspaper quoted a former furniture industry executive, Brad Noe, as saying a sofa worth nearly $3,000 that he was supposed to have given to the Clintons wasn’t meant for them, but for the White House collection. “I would never give a gift to the Clintons,” Noe said.
“Everyone involved, including the White House curator, believed that each item was a gift to the Clintons,” said Jim Kennedy, speaking for the Clintons. “Now you have a couple of people saying that they didn’t intend for them to go to the Clintons and, of course, we want their wishes to be honored.”
The day before they left the White House, the Clintons released a list of $190,000 in gifts they chose to take with them, many of which they could use for their two new homes in Washington and in Chappaqua, New York.
But after criticism erupted, they offered to pay $86,000 for about half the gifts.
Now it’s the other half at issue. Some items in this group were on a National Park Service list of donations for the 1993 White House redecoration project.
The gift flap is one of several problems dogging Clinton’s first weeks as an ex-president and his wife’s first weeks as a senator.
Critics also questioned Clinton’s decision to rent an office in New York City that would have cost taxpayers more than $600,000 a year. Last week, he said his foundation would pay half the cost.

The final, official report from the Government Accounting Office was released on June 11, 2002. The 220 page document says there was damage, although not as much as some of the early reports had suggested. The GAO says the damage included 62 missing computer keyboards, 26 cell phones, two cameras, ten antique doorknobs and several presidential medallions and office signs. The damage estimate was about $20,000. Clinton critics say the report proves that the departing Clinton staff members acted recklessly and disrespectfully. Clinton supporters say the report shows that the allegations of vandalism were exaggerated and that there were similar incidents when Clinton took over the White House from the staff of George Bush.
The GAO report concludes that even though damage was verified and that some of it appeared to have been intentional, there was not clear evidence of who was responsible for it.
This has been a subject of contention since President Bush took office. There were reports of vandalism, graffiti, and obscene messages in White House offices by outgoing Clinton staffers. Bush downplayed the reports saying he wanted to move on with the presidency. Clinton supporters, however, charged that the story was not true and that the Bush forces had made up the story to make Bush’s staff look better than Clinton’s. Former President Clinton offered to pay for any damage and his supporters called for an investigation.
I wish I could feel some of their $100 million+ pain.
President Clinton’s annual federal retirement pension is $199,700 in 2013. The pension is linked to Executive Level I pay, which increased to $201,700 on January 1, 2014.
The pension begins immediately upon a Presidents departure from office at noon on Inauguration Day, January 20. The Secretary of the Treasury disburses the monthly pensions.
And this doesn’t include annual allowances for office space, mailings, and staff. Clinton has received as much as $1.35 million in 2004. He received $944,000 in 2014.
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
