The story you are about to read is a very big deal but you won’t hear much of it in the mainstream media.
A recent article exposing a very uncompassionate and possibly deceitful attorney named Hillary Clinton has caused the Washington Free Beacon to lose their research privileges at the Clinton library in the University of Arkansas. So much for the First Amendment.
The Washington Free Beacon broke the story which we posted here about her defense of a child rapist in 1975 in Arkansas. She took the case at the request of a friend and won, in part, because she successfully attacked the credibility of a 12-year old girl, a girl who now says her life was greatly damaged by the event. She also attacked the chain of evidence on petty trivialities.
She was interviewed by an Arkansas journalist named Roy Reed about the case in the 1980’s. She laughed about the case during the interview in what many would see as a very callous manner. She suggested that she got a guilty man off with ten months in the county jail. She was pleased about it and her handling of the case.
The interview was never published and the tapes were eventually donated to the University of Arkansas where they were soon forgotten.
A lengthy article was written about the case by Newsday journalist Glenn Thrush in 2008. It too has disappeared from sight and sits in an archive somewhere though others have it posted online and we linked to it in our article.
It’s been ignored by the press because it’s a significant story. When a presidential candidate laughs out loud about getting a child rapist freed at the expense of a sixth grader, that could damage the person’s candidacy.
The Washington Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman, obtained the tape of the Reed interview and made it public for the first time.
Hillary Clinton was fortunate that the interview was never published because her insinuation that her client was guilty does reflect on the sacred trust of attorney-client privilege.
She was just doing her job say her defenders – defending a child rapist at the expense of the little girl and she thought it funny in the aftermath.
I heard she had a good sense of humor (irony here).
When the Washington Free Beacon researcher, Matthew Continetti, arrived at the University of Arkansas to go through the Clinton library papers on Wednesday, there was a letter waiting for him from the Dean, Carolyn Henderson Allen. stating that the Free Beacon’s research privileges had been suspended. They further demanded Free Beacon remove the the audio of the Hillary tapes from their website.
It should be noted that the Chancellor David Gearhart, is a former student of the Clintons, and that his brother, Van Gearhart, worked at the same legal aid clinic as Clinton at the time of the Taylor case, according to the Free Beacon.
The reason they gave is for failure to comply with the University rules, rules never described prior to the article being published. In fact, they gave the tapes to the author, Alana Goodman, freely and without reservation.
The Clinton allies and possibly the Clintons themselves are taking the Free Beacon’s First Amendment rights away because they don’t like what the Beacon has to say.
The victim – the 12-year old who is now 52-years old – is angry with Hillary and wants to tell her story.
In an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast, the now 52-year-old woman, whose name was withheld by the publication out of concern for her privacy, said she still harbors anger toward Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton took me through Hell,” the victim said.
The woman told The Daily Beast that Clinton deliberately lied about her in court documents, went to extraordinary lengths to discredit evidence of the rape, and later laughed about her attackers’ guilt on the recordings.
She said that if she could speak to Clinton, she would say, “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.”
In court documents, Hillary accused the 12-year old of making false accusations in the past.
“I have been informed that the complainant is emotionally unstable with a tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing,” Clinton, then named Hillary D. Rodham, wrote in the affidavit. “I have also been informed that she has in the past made false accusations about persons, claiming they had attacked her body. Also that she exhibits an unusual stubbornness and temper when she does not get her way.”
The victim said she never accused anyone of attacking her before her rape.
“I’ve never said that about anyone. I don’t know why she said that. I have never made false allegations. I know she was lying,” she said. “I definitely didn’t see older men. I don’t know why Hillary put that in there and it makes me plumb mad.”
