There have been times when I thought that Hillary Clinton may once have been an idealistic student government President who believed in the higher good of her school and that she’d fostered similar ambitions for her country.
For any others out there who may have suspected that it was all those years in Washington that had turned her into a corrupt political monster, I present you with this audio, which demonstrates that she was then – and will always be – an incomprehensibly psychopathic animal, just as in her early days as a Defense Attorney, back in 1975.
She is recorded here bragging about the dirty tricks that she used in her defense of a child rapist from getting off of any charges for the rape and the permanent maiming of a 12 year old girl who was beaten so badly that she was in a coma for five days.
This tape of a 1980 interview by journalist Roy Reed is available in the Social Collections Department of the University of Arkansas Libraries:
Roy Reed: You said a while ago that you’v done some criminal work. Can you tell me more about that?
Hillary Clinton: …I had some really tough clients. I had one appear, the prosecutor called me years ago, said that he had a a guy who was accused of rape…and the guy wanted a woman lawyer…Terrible case. Do you remember that case where I represented that guy? It was a really interesting case This guy was accused of raping a 12 year old who was the daughter of the family he was living with in Springdale, the other side of the tracks in Springdale. And the guy was from Green Forest where his family still had a little farm…
He took a lie detector test! I had him take a polygraph, which he passed, which forever destroyed my faith in in polygraphs [laughter]…I handed it to Mahlor Gibson and I said, “Well,this guy’s ready to come from New York to prevent this miscarriage of justice!” [Laughter]. So we were going to do a plea bargain. So I went before Maupin Cummings to present the plea…under the law, [Maupin] was supposed to determine whether the plea was factually supported. Maupin asked me to leave the room while he examined my client so he could find out if it was factually supported.
I said, “Judge, I can’t leave the room, I’m his lawyer!” He said, “I know but I don’t want to talk about this in front of you.” That was Maupin. Had a lot of fun with Maupin…
Roy Reed: How’d it turn out?
Hillary Clinton: Oh, he plea bargained! I got him off with time served in the County Jail. He’d been in the County Jail about two months.
