Top 10 Most Corrupt U.S. Presidents
Really, the gold standard of corruption in office. Until Trump. In retrospect, Nixon was merely Trump Lite.
Poor Dick. It wasn't so much the theft at Watergate as the damning evidence of him willing to cover it up.
Started the decline. Before him the recent president were relatively clean
He got away with the Teapot dome scandal but others went to prison.
The only swamp that is draining is his own kingdom. Members of his staff who have morals are running from this President. Teflon Don surrounds himself with a pack of lawyers and every day since he has been in office there has been drama. No different than popular gangsters who exercise their power legitimate or not, including tax evasion. The very same corruption Rudy fought against as prosecutor and mayor of NYC.
Republicans say they are picking on him since his election. They forgot the roadblocks they put President Obama through beginning his first day in office. They forgot how President Clinton's poor discretion and lie was merely a "cleansing of the white house."
Trump lies everyday, but is smart enough never to testify and always finding a diversion. They was he addresses the nation I often wonder if his dad paid to get him into college and adjust his SAT scores. If so that would be "very, very bad."

Guilty on emoluments. Guilty on conspiracy for involving Giuliani in the Ukraine fiasco. Guilty of violating several clauses of the 1971 Federal Elections Campaign Act for directly asking Zelensky for a favor. Doesn't even require a quid pro quo, but by then holding back the defense funds, added bribery and misappropriation of funds to the violations of that campaign act. Guilty of obstruction of justice at least 4 times related to the Mueller probe. Undoubtedly the greatest liar ever to occupy the White House. Has allowed his children to use the power of the White House to gain favor in China. Had Rick Perry lobby the Ukraine to get business friends of Trump appointed to the board of the Ukraine natural gas company, for profit. Has made Russia the greater power in Eastern Europe and the Mideast. It will a long time before we have allies in that part of the world. The first amendment of the constitution guarantees freedom of the press. By condemning the press for protecting the United ...more
Easily the most corrupt president in history, his entire presidency was a scam to avoid prison for his thefts disguised as business dealings and was a tool to advance his own personality cult and ego. Known for his not so thinly veiled lies and refusal to take responsibility for his handling of the 2020 pandemic response that killed thousands of Americans, he was also guilty of nepotism as several of his immediate family members also profited off Trump's presidency with their positions despite a total lack of qualifications (much like Trump himself).
He is morally bankrupt and an absolute disgrace to our country. However, nobody in this country should be surprised by anything that he says or does.
He made it very clear during his campaign for the Republican nomination that his focus is only on personal gain and that he has no concern for any country (although he has a strong preference for dictatorships) including the US and its citizens. He, his family (nepotism), and his political appointees all have taken corruption to a new level. He makes Nixon look like a boy scout. Read the Mueller Report.
Sinks to #2 after Trump, who will easily be #1 as most corrupt.
Really? Does the public really need an explanation why Obama is one of the worse Presidents ever in US History? Secret Emails, arming enemies, dividing country, obummercare, secret investments, targeting conservatives with IRS, fired many whistleblowers who exposed corruption and criminal acts (Amtrak, ATF and Americorps inspectors) bribery to get reelected, lied to Americans about insurance to promote Obummercare, the list can go on and on.
Gave arms, munitions, funds, support for our enemies...cost the lives of countless American soldiers with possibly the most scandals and worst presidential performance record in history...gdp...While spending more the ALL the other presidents combined...never fulfilling even one campaign promise ass those he claims where all schemes to rob the American people remember "You like your doctor, you can keep your doctor." or perhaps his comment to the Russian diplomate "After my next election I'll be more flexible" while help facilitating the Uranium One deal...Truly a President I believe should be stripped of his honors and executed for high treason...
Barack Hussein Obama entered office with a net-worth of less than $250,000 and left office 8 years later worth over 1 billion dollars. Since his yearly salary was less than $200,000 a year, how could an honest person make so much money so quickly? As a President he weaponized the IRS and other departments against his foes, just like any honest and trustworthy person would do. Being a crook came naturally since all of his earlier life, college, early jobs and anything he did in politics are sealed and no one seems to remember him until elected into the House. Honest people tend to have a history, but corrupt, well this is the Obama story.
He was a disgrace to our great country, apologized to our enemies, created the terror group ISIS. Funded our enemies, left Americans to die in Benghazi. More than doubled our national debt. Caused excessive racial division. Attacked the men in blue and first responders. Single-handedly destroyed the greatest health care in the world. Arrogantly ignored the Constitution. Allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun smugglers so the arms could be traced to the higher echelons of Mexican drug cartels. I could go on for hours, but I think you get the message.
Less corrupt and more not-so-bright.
Reagan killed tens of thousands, personally extended and expanded the AIDS epidemic, and committed treason many times, the worst being arming Iran and replacing democratically elected governments with criminals all over the planet. He gets my vote.
More a figurehead than a leader, Reagan's time in office was marked by repeated scandals, a corrupt AG in Edwin Meese and a domineering wife who based her decisions on US policy on the soothsaying of mediums.
This guy was the architect of the JFK assassination just so he could become president and pander to the military industrial complex by vastly increasing the American presence in Vietnam. One of the least trustworthy people (after Trump) to ever sit in the Oval office.
There at the right time. Did little for race relations although it looks like he did. Heavy on the Mafia relations, this guy was a snake.
Surpasses all of the rest by a mile for pure, unbridled greed and corruption.
Sorry my wife says we didn't mean him.
Can you imagine if Hillary got elected? She'd be following her husband and Obama's leaderships. American would be devasted and our society would be screwed.
Famous for having people "Arkancided", his list of dirty deeds is truly spectacular. When it comes to corruption, he makes Kim Jong UN look like a novice.
Layers of corruption, mostly self-serving, Clinton can still be thought of having America's back.
Charismatic, and a true politician, not a bad president but a lot of speculation about corruption, just look at the allegations, too powerful, where there is smoke there usually is fire
Slaughtered Native American men women and child with out remorse.
He's second, but incredibly better than number 1.
Just a Obama clone, that can't think fast and lie as fast.
Not really corrupt by comparison to most, it may be that his total incompetence is being confused with corruption; he was simply unable to do the job.
The most disingenuous fake in modern times.
Supporter and president in charge of the Slave Trade. Not only did the Slave Trade hurt the Africans, but it also hurt the churches.
