Conservative commentator Steve Deace tried to cast doubt on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s trustworthiness Wednesday by saying that the last time she and her husband lived in the White House, “they were impeached.”

“Listen, whether you love the Clintons or not, we are talking about a presidency,” Deace said during a discussion about the presumed Democratic presidential contender on MSNBC’s “NewsNation with Tamron Hall” Wednesday morning. “The last time she lived in the White House, they were impeached.”

“And why were they impeached?” he said. “Because they didn’t tell the truth.”

The House of Representatives impeached President Bill Clinton on two charges relating to the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal in 1998. The Senate acquitted him of both charges the following year.

Hillary Clinton, then the first lady, was never impeached.

Watch below via MSNBC. Deace’s comments start at about 9:00.
