Hillary Clinton was absolutely, 100 percent certain that she was going to win the presidential election.
After all, she’d done her best to rig the results by bussing out-of-state voters into neighboring swing states.
How could she possibly lose?
But, as we all know, she did lose.
And that cost Hillary more than the White House, her reputation and her political career.
It cost her at least $1.6 million of her personal fortune.
That’s because Hillary had already purchased a second house in New York for her staff, assuming that she’d soon be moving to Washington.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Clinton Was So Confident of Victory She Bought Second Home in Chappaqua to Accommodate White House Staff
Hillary Clinton was so confident of victory last year that she bought a second house next to her residence in Chappaqua, New York, to accommodate White House staff during presidential retreats there.
“I thought I was going to win,” she said.
The New York Post reported last year on the Clintons paying $1.16 million for the three-bedroom, ranch-style home next to their house in Chappaqua. The newspaper’s source said at the time it was thought to be a weekend retreat for their daughter Chelsea’s family.
In an interview from her home on the CBS program “Sunday Morning” delving into her 2016 election defeat, Clinton was asked about the property after she discussed attending President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Host Jane Pauley noted Clinton had been “so sure” she would be the one giving the inaugural address in January.
“You specifically bought this house for a reason,” Pauley said as they walked outside.
“I did,” Clinton said.
