Hillary Clinton refuses to definitively say whether or not she has ever lied to the American people.

During a Thursday interview with CBS’s Scott Pelley, Clinton said, “I don’t believe I ever have” lied to voters.

Pelley began by asking Clinton, “You know in ’76, Jimmy Carter famously said, ‘I will not lie to you.'”

“Well, I will tell you, I have tried in every way I know how, literally from my years as a young lawyer, all the way through my time as secretary of state to level with the American people,” Clinton claimed.

Pelley replied, “You talk about leveling with the American people. Have you always told the truth?”

“I’ve have always tried to, always, always,” Clinton suggested.

“Some people are going to call that wiggle room that you just gave yourself ‘always, always tried to,'” Pelley said. “I mean, Jimmy Carter said, I will never lie to you.”

Disagreeing with Pelley’s claim, Clinton replied, “You know, you’re asking me to say, ‘Have I ever?’ I don’t believe I ever have… I don’t believe I ever will. I’m going to do the best I can to level with the American people.”

According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, voters say Clinton is not honest and trustworthy by a two to one ratio.
