Who is the real Hillary Clinton? The former First Lady and Secretary of State has touted her history as a champion of women’s rights, but unearthed tapes (below) tell another story.
The audio, obtained by The Washington Free Beacon, is of Clinton in the 1980s discussing a case she took on as a young lawyer in Arkansas, in which she represented a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl.
In the interview with Arkansas journalist Roy Reed, Clinton says, “Do you remember that case where I represented that guy? It was a fascinating case. […] The guy was accused of raping a 12-year-old girl. Of course he claimed that he didn’t. All this stuff. He took a lie detector test. I had him take a polygraph, which he passed, which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs (laughter).”
She goes on to describe how the man got off by taking a plea deal with time served in county jail.
The victim is now 52 and claims Clinton “took her through hell” by going to great lengths to discredit her.
Today on The Five, Guilfoyle expressed her astonishment at the fact that Clinton voluntarily chose to represent a child rapist.
“It’s a moral choices issue. It’s an ethical issue. It’s one of integrity and it really goes to the core of whether or not you’re someone who believes passionately in women’s rights,” Guilfoyle said, highlighting her own personal decision to be a prosecutor and not a criminal defense attorney.
Guest host Jesse Watters said he doesn’t have a problem with Clinton defending the rapist because that’s what lawyers are paid to do.
However, Watters continued, “What I have a problem with her doing is lying about this victim and then laughing about it. This is a 12-year-old girl who was raped brutally, was put in a coma. She was a virgin. She was told she could never have children. And what did Hillary Clinton do to this person? She said this girl seeks out older men – which is a lie. She said this person is mentally unstable – also a lie."
He added, "[Clinton's] got a real problem with telling the truth.”
