The Best Kept Secrets of the Clinton Family

4. They Changed the White House Phone System


Wary of spies in the White House during President Clinton’s term, Bill and Hillary decided to change the entire phone system so that they didn’t have to go through an operator to speak to each other when they were in the White House. This frustrated the White House Staff, because it meant that instead of the specific ring tone that would alert White House officials that they had a call, anyone could pick up any phone in any room without the call having to go through the main operator. According to inside sources, this was an example of the Clintons’ paranoia that there were enemies within their ranks.
