Exclusive: 'Hillary Clinton Took Me Through Hell,' Rape Victim Says
Daily Beast ^ | 06/20/2014 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 06/20/2014 5:25:41 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

The woman at the center of the scandal over Hillary Clinton’s defense of an alleged child rapist speaks out in depth for the first time.

Hillary Clinton is known as a champion of women and girls, but one woman who says she was raped as a 12-year-old in Arkansas doesn’t think Hillary deserves that honor. This woman says Hillary smeared her and used dishonest tactics to successfully get her attacker off with a light sentence -- even though, she claims, Clinton knew he was guilty.

The victim in the 1975 sexual abuse case that became Clinton’s first criminal defense case as a 27-year-old lawyer has only spoken to the media once since her attack, a contested, short interaction with a reporter in 2008, during Clinton’s last presidential campaign run. Now 52, she wants to speak out after hearing Clinton talk about her case on newly discovered audio recordings from the 1980s, unearthed by the Washington Free Beacon and made public this week.

In a long, emotional interview with The Daily Beast, she accused Clinton of intentionally lying about her in court documents, going to extraordinary lengths to discredit evidence of the rape, and later callously acknowledging and laughing about her attackers’ guilt on the recordings.

This sounds significant, worth a bump.

Anybody who believes that Hillary’s career and accomplishments have been outstanding is not looking.

Hillary Clinton is known as a champion of women and girls,

That's one of the biggest lies there is. What is this based on? A couple conferences she hosted as Secretary of State? What about the fact that she spearheaded her husband's defense against all the women who accused him of molesting and raping them? That doesn't seem like something a champion of women and girls does. No, Hillary! defending a rapist by trashing the victim is par for the course for her.

Ask any of Bill Clinton’s sexual assault victims who had to endure the “nuts and sluts” strategy what an advocate for women Hillary is.

even though, she claims, Clinton knew he was guilty.

Clinton admitted she KNEW the guy was guilty as hell, but took pleasure in winning the case.

We’ve got to stop voting silver spoon lawyers into office. Their arrogance and lack of empathy is not good for The People. We need people who have suffered and worked hard to attain their position that understand what the average Joe has to go through.

How about the fact that even though Bill sexually accosted multitudes of females, the NAGs and every womans group supported this sexually aggressive deviant?

As the Flying Buttress, Hillary has been seen in nothing but pantsuits since about 1993.

She’s been a power hungry witch since long before that.

Any of the Democrat voters (er zombies) who believe they represent their interests are in for a big shock. The Democrat plantation needs to be enlightened to Masters Reid, Pelosi and Overseer Obama real allegiance. Blacks, hispanics, and especially women have been lied to and the media is the mouthpiece in controlling the narrative. The IRS, EPA, and Justice Department are the enforcers.

I Hate Hillary. Not too crazy bout lawyers, either.

But this is what defense lawyers do. This is what lawyers in general do. They are their to defend their clients or prosecute a perp. They are not there to get a just outcome...they are there to win their case. Take a defense lawyer and a prosecutor and switch them around and they will try to win in their new diametrically opposed position.

I hate it, but it is what it is.

It is a sad state of affairs that the skin tone of the people in question is a factor in “how bad” this is.

But, I again blame the left for that. Racial politics has been an effective vehicle to power for them.

It’s very important to keep the truth alive of Hillary being in charge of the “bimbo eruptions” while Bill was governor and while he was in the White House. Every time I mention it when the topic of Hillary comes up, invariably there are those who have never heard about it. It’s going to take all of us interjecting the truths of Hillary, like the information in this article, that are not reported by the suck-up media to friends, family and acquaintances.

Sorry, you are more generous than I am. When the case involves the rape of a CHILD you don’t laugh about getting the guilty perp off....you lose sleep over it,,you get sick over it,,you don’t laugh about it. Or you purposefully throw the case and claim you tried your best (like Clinton did with Benghazi)

Just my two cents.

The Beast interviewed this woman? I though everyone on the left was putting a wall around Hillary and none of them would touch a story like this. It seems Team Hillary is bleeding a little bit every day and as the bad interviews, poor book sales, and negative stories begin to pile up the question needs to be asked. Is the Democratic Party going to look for a replacement for Hillary because the road to her coronation looks like it’s about to go over the side of a cliff.

This story makes one question the one man, one vote system that we have. These people (The Clinton's)have always been world class phonies with incredible sales ability. Then along comes Obama and the same voters elect him.

The teams of supplicants who airbrush away the real and replace it with the imaginary are shameless, and rich because of that ability. We could name names, but everyone knows them anyway.

Not saying that like Benghazi it should not be used against her or that it’s not despicable. Just saying it is SOP for lawyers to do whatever is necessary to win a case and it is accepted and legal.

Yes, indeed.

The victim was a virgin prior to the rape and spent some time in a coma. She has been imprisoned for drugs although the article is unclear on that.

Now, her quotes make her sound either like a country girl or a black woman, I couldn’t tell. If she’s a country gal like Paula Jones, we can expect James Carville to show up with his dollar dragging it through a trailer park camp.

Not everything a lawyer does to protect a client is accepted and legal. Destroying incriminating documents for one would not be legal and acceptable. Although to a Clinton, it would.

It is also not acceptable (although I suppose legal) to be caught on tape acknowledging the perp’s guilt and laughing about it. Especially when it involves a 12 year old virgin.

Hillary’s War on Raped Children deserves all the scrutiny that the NYT and Washington Post gave George Bush’s DUI…in fact, it deserves much, much more.
Many people have been caught drinking and driving, but few have lied in court about a child who was raped to get the rapist off.
