The Clintons bought their Chappaqua neighbor’s house and are building a compound for millions of dollars…
Hillary Clinton set the political world on fire in June 2014 when she told Diane Sawyer that she and her husband Bill were “dead broke” when they left the White House in 2001.
“We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt,” Clinton said. “We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education. It was not easy.
Fact checkers immediately dismissed the claim as false, but Clinton’s mention of “houses” (plural) caught the attention of many. Not eager to leave D.C., the Clintons purchased a home called “White Haven” near the Naval Observatory in the nation’s capital. The 5,500-square-foot home cost the couple $2.85 million, and has seven bedrooms and a pool.
Additionally, the Clintons purchased a home in Chappaqua, New York, from which Clinton launched her successful senatorial bid in her new home state in 1999. They paid $1.7 million for this home, and just announced yesterday they’re making another high-dollar purchase in the neighborhood.
In fact, the Clintons are purchasing their third million-dollar mansion – the house next door to them in Chappaqua, creating a Clinton Compound at the end of a cul-de-sac. The Clintons paid $1.1 million for the 3,600-square-foot ranch on 1.5 acres.
The spin is that the new purchase will make it “easier for the United States Secret Service to protect the former president and possible future commander in chief.”
Another theory? A source told the New York Post: “Rumor has it that the Clintons plan to use this as a mother/daughter house for Chelsea and her kids to visit on the weekends when they want to escape the city and their Flatiron digs since the Chappaqua house has a nice pool and plenty of rolling green lawn for kids to play on.”
Whatever the reason, the new house is sure to revive a conversation about the Clintons’ wealth that they’re likely eager to avoid heading into Monday night’s first presidential debate.
