Although Hillary is well-known to voters, many Americans say they do not support a future run for a presidency. Although it does not seem likely she would run for president again, Hillary is still an influential figure both in the Democratic party and overseas due to her former tenure as Secretary of State. In this article we will highlight some fascinating facts about Hillary:
1. Hillary Clinton Was the Only First Lady to Ever be Subpoenaed
During the first few years Hillary was the First Lady, the Clinton’s were engulfed in the Whitewater controversy. The trouble started back in 1992 when the New York Times released an article alleging both Bill and Hillary Clinton invested and lost money with the Whitewater Development Corporation. The article prompted a full-scale investigation into the actions of the Clinton’s, where every real estate investment they were involved with was now cast under a giant spotlight.
These investments dated back throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and finally counsel Robert Fiske issued a grand-jury subpoena to Bill and Hillary Clinton to turn over all documents that pertained to this matter. To this date, this marks the only time in United States history that a First Lady has ever been subpoenaed.
