Number 1 – Hillary And Bill Wash Themselves Of Whitewater

Hillary and Bill’s first major scandal. Whitewater Development Company was a failed Arkansas real estate company, founded by Bill and Hillary Clinton and their friends, James and Susan McDougal in the 1970s and 1980s. Sources claimed that Bill, as Governor of Arkansas, pressured others into offering loans to Whitewater, even as the company fell apart. The McDougals were eventually convicted of fraud and conspiracy (and later pardoned by Bill Clinton, before he left office) but the Clintons were somehow never even indicted.
