Newly discovered audio recordings of Hillary Clinton from the early 1980s include the former first lady’s frank and detailed assessment of the most significant criminal case of her legal career: defending a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl....
This is delicious on several levels. It comes in the context of the Democrats’ claims of a GOP “war on women.” Yet here is the presumptive front-runner, the supposed champion of women and Historic First female president, scheming to get a man she knows was guilty a lesser charge than the horrific rape he committed. In a recording of her unmistakable voice.
To be sure, she was doing her job. It is a lawyer’s obligation to work on her client’s behalf. But try explaining to voters that “I’m a lawyer so I am not supposed to care about the female victim.” In fact, I really, really hope that Hillary tries exactly that if questioned about her behavior all those years ago. Americans love and respect lawyers so much that becoming the poster girl for them would be an apt reward for Mrs. Clinton.
