Hillary Clinton and a child rape case

Young Hillary Clinton heard laughing while discussing her defense of an accused child rapist in newly discovered audio tapes

Decades before she was a senator and Secretary of State, a 27-year-old Clinton was a court-appointed attorney who helped get an Arkansas man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl off the hook. In recently unearthed tapes, Clinton, who suggests she felt her client was guilty, is heard discussing her role in the controversial case with cavalier ease and laughter.

NO U.S. TABLOID SALESDAVID HUME KENNERLY/GETTY IMAGESHillary Rodham Clinton, seen here in 1974, is heard on tape casually discussing the circumstances of defending an accused child rapist.

A young Hillary Clinton callously rejoiced at getting an accused child rapist off the hook even though the then-lawyer suspected the man was guilty, newly unearthed audio recordings of the youthful future pol show.

Clinton, then a 27-year-old legal aid lawyer in Arkansas, is heard on the old recording, obtained and first reported on by the Washington Free Beacon, casually discussing how she was able to finagle a plea bargain for her client — an Arkansas man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl — because of a legal technicality.

“This guy was accused of raping a 12-year-old. ‘Course he claimed that he didn’t, and all this stuff,” says a cavalier Clinton on the recording, referencing her client, Thomas Alfred Taylor, who was charged with the 1975 rape.

“I had him take a polygraph, which he passed, which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,” a chuckling Clinton is heard saying — a seemingly obvious clue that she felt her client was guilty.
