pull a Clinton

verb;
to stretch or distort the truth in a fairly obvious manner; to give a statement which is technically true, but intentionally misleading; Combines “pull” as in “pull it off” or “pull a fast one” with the assocation of president Clinton trying to distort the truth about his affairs with Monica Lewinsky. As I did not hear this expression until the Clinton impeachment, such a rationale seems reasonable.
 
Referring to actions like claiming the floor is clean when everything is stuffed into the closet or piled on a table
Etymology : pull+ a+ Clinton
