Part I:The Hillary Tapes: Clinton Tells of Defense of Child Rapist in Newly Unearthed Recordings

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.

In 1975, the same year she married Bill, Hillary Clinton agreed to serve as the court-appointed attorney for Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year-old accused of raping the child after luring her into a car.

The recordings, which date from 1983-1987 and have never before been reported, include Clinton’s suggestion that she knew Taylor was guilty at the time. She says she used a legal technicality to plead her client, who faced 30 years to life in prison, down to a lesser charge. The recording and transcript, along with court documents pertaining to the case, are embedded below.

The full story of the Taylor defense calls into question Clinton’s narrative of her early years as a devoted women and children’s advocate in Arkansas—a narrative the 2016 presidential frontrunner continues to promote on her current book tour.

It doesn’t matter if your client is guilty or not (and most are), you still have to defend them. It’s one reason why I don’t do criminal defense.

HILLARY was also the one in charge of intimidating Juanita into silence:

Bill raped her, Hillary silenced her.

The recordings, which date from 1983-1987 and have never before been reported...

Anyone know of the source of these 'newly discovered audio recordings of Hillary Clinton...'?

Those who've followed the Clinton M.O. knows that this is S.O.P. Clinton has always released damaging information months and years ahead of the election cycle so that when someone brings it up on the campaign trail, it is dismissed with the wave of the hand as 'old news.'

Hillary’s already made her unholy bargain. This won’t stop her, won’t even slow her down. She is protected by that which has no equal on this Earth.

Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless, should not have been celebrating the win with such unholy GLEE.

In the words of Herself, “I have been informed that the complainant is emotionally unstable with a tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing.” Essentially, the victim of the rape was made out to be a “nut and slut”, a strange way to come to the defense of the actual perpetrator in the crime. Herself further asserted, on the recording, “He (Thomas Alfred Taylor) took a lie detector test. I had him take a polygraph, which he passed, which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,” failing to hold back some chuckles.

The victim herself stated, “Hillary Clinton took me through Hell.” In reaction to hearing the tapes, the victim, now 52 years of age, “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.’”

For Herself, that would be a resume enhancement.

Her client got a good plea deal because the state lost the key incriminating evidence. The case never went to trial and therefore no nuts and sluts defense was attempted.

I dunno. The girl may have been unstable. She did time for check forgery to feed a meth habit.

Hillary is taking the tone of one lawyer telling another lawyer a "war story" which is totally inappropriate for a media interview discussing a case.

But, as we've already seen multiple times during Hillary's noncampaign campaign, she is no Slick Willie. The "poor" thing.

I don’t know anything about this case, but I suspect that being raped at 12 and then seeing the perp go free just might make a girl become unstable.
