Earlier this week, audio of Hillary Clinton gleefully defending a child rapist was published by the Washington Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman.

In 1975 during her time as an attorney, Clinton took on the case of Thomas Alfred Taylor, a man who brutally raped a 12-year-old girl at the age of 41. Clinton said she thought Taylor was guilty.

The issue isn’t her defense of the accused rapist; after all, this is America and even the worst and most evil villains in our society are entitled to an attorney. Instead, the issue is Clinton’s behavior after getting Taylor out of a lengthy sentence for his crime when she thought he was guilty. He served less than one year in prison.

“Describing the events almost a decade after they had occurred, Clinton’s struck a casual and complacent attitude toward her client and the trial for rape of a minor," Goodman reported about the audio. "‘I had him take a polygraph, which he passed – which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,’ she added with a laugh. Clinton can also be heard laughing at several points when discussing the crime lab’s accidental destruction of DNA evidence that tied Taylor to the crime.”
