Hillary Clinton declined to specify her net worth in an interview, sidestepping questions about her family’s wealth ahead of a possible 2016 presidential run.

In the interview with Fusion posted Monday evening, Clinton, considered the Democratic frontrunner if she decides to run, was asked how much money she has.

“Ummm, you know within a range,” Clinton said. “You know we have two very nice houses that we’re very proud of, which we’re not selling anytime soon.”

“But millions?” the interviewer pressed.

“Yeah, yes, indeed,” confirmed Clinton.

Clinton came under fire in early June, as she launched a national book tour for her memoir, Hard Choices, for claiming that she and former President Clinton left the White House “dead broke” and “in debt.” 

She told Fusion she regrets making those statements.

“I regret it, it was inartful,” she said. “It was accurate, but we are so successful and we're so blessed by the success we've had and my husband has worked incredibly hard.

“What I worry about is not my family,” she continued. “I worry about other families in our country who feel like they're running in place. They’re not getting ahead.”

Clinton told ABC News’s Diane Sawyer last month that her family left the White House in 2001 “dead broke.”

"We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt," Clinton said. "We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea's education. You know, it was not easy."

The day after the interview aired, she clarified and also defended her remarks, claiming she and Bill are “obviously blessed.”

The former president later came to his wife’s defense, saying that she was not “out of touch.”
