Victim Of Man Hillary Defended Of Rape Accuses Her Of Taking Her "Through Hell"

If you're just getting up to speed on this, back in the 1970s Hillary Clinton was a young lawyer in Arkansas who represented a man accused of raping a 12 year old girl. Clinton got her client a slap on the wrist plea deal because investigators lost a key piece of physical evidence.

This story is in the news again because the Free Beacon dug up a tape recording of Hillary talking about the case to a reporter and laughing about how she knew the guy was guilty but that she was able to get him out from under the most serious charges. Now, lawyers have to represent the guilty as well as the innocent so that's not a real problem. What may well be a problem for Hillary and her image as protector of women and children is what the victim is saying about how Hillary conducted the defense.

“I would say [to Clinton], ‘You took a case of mine in ’75, you lied on me… I realize the truth now, the heart of what you’ve done to me. And you are supposed to be for women? You call that [being] for women, what you done to me? And I hear you on tape laughing.”

What really has the victim infuriated is what Hillary said about her, at the time a 12 year old child who had been raped by multiple men.

“I have been informed that the complainant is emotionally unstable with a tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing,” Clinton, then named Hillary D. Rodham, wrote in the affidavit. “I have also been informed that she has in the past made false accusations about persons, claiming they had attacked her body. Also that she exhibits an unusual stubbornness and temper when she does not get her way.”

The victim, who hasn't been named because of her status as the victim of a sex crime and has had a tough life that includes drug and alcohol abuse as well as serving time in jail, says that those statements by Clinton to the Court were lies then and the tapes prove it.

“It’s proven fact, with all the tapes [now revealed], she lied like a dog on me. I think she was trying to do whatever she could do to make herself look good at the time…. She wanted it to look good, she didn’t care if those guys did it or not,” she said. “Them two guys should have got a lot longer time. I do not think justice was served at all.”

Sure lawyers have an obligation to defend their client but smearing a 12 year old rape victim and laughing about it a few years later is not exactly a subject most candidates for President want to deal with.

Wouldn't it be something if Hillary's presidential ambitions were derailed by a rape case when Bill's weren't?

An interesting side note to this story is that Dean of Libraries at the University of Arkansan where the Free Beacon found the tapes has now banned the website from accessing any more materials and demanding they take down what they found.

The Free Beacon's lawyer responded to the demands by making a fairly obvious point...libraries exist to disseminate information, not hide it.

At the outset, I find it stunning that you would seek to censor the dissemination of lawfully acquired information that is clearly in the public interest, given the historic role that libraries long have played in fostering free expression and the broad dissemination of information. In addition to being entirely inaccurate as a matter of both law and fact, your letter is a clear assault on the First Amendment principles that are fundamental to libraries and to journalism.

Your letter fails to provide a single reason why the Free Beacon cannot continue to publish this information. Your staff provided the recordings to the Free Beacon without any condition, apprised the Free Beacon of no “policies” limiting their dissemination, and required no agreement to be signed prior to receiving them. You now assert that the Free Beacon violated the “policies of Special Collections,” yet you fail to quote or cite these “policies,” or explain how they bind my client. You mention a “permission to publish form,” but the Free Beacon never signed this form, nor has it ever agreed to sign it. Your staff unconditionally provided the audio recordings to the Free Beacon and the Free Beacon did not agree to any restrictions on their use. Therefore, the Free Beacon was free to publish this information, and continues to be free to do so.

You'll be shocked to hear that the dean is a Clinton donor.
