Apparently accidental destruction of DNA evidence wasn't enough for Clinton to go on, so she attacked the 12-year-old victim as possibly emotionally unstable and someone who may be exaggerating or romanticizing a sexual experience.
Shocking? Sure, but this newly uncovered audio is just one piece of Hillary Clinton’s long legacy, career and life of defending sexual predators. Clinton’s history of brushing sexual assault and abuse of young women under the rug for her own personal and political gain is fully documented in my new book Assault and Flattery: The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women, which will be published on July 8.
Fast forward a few years after a giddy Clinton relieved a child rapist of any real consequence or justice and you'll find that for decades she willfully helped destroy the women who her husband, former President Bill Clinton, was accused of sexually assaulting or raping. Time and again instead of holding her husband accountable, she defamed his female accusers as mentally unstable loons looking for money. Clinton repeatedly allowed women to be lied about, smeared and manipulated so her philandering husband could hold onto power, which eventually led to her own as a Senator from New York, a presidential candidate, and President Obama's Secretary of State.
But speaking of her record at the State Department, what exactly did Clinton do during her tenure there? She ignored alleged rampant sexual abuse of minor girls by high ranking State Department employees.
Under her watch, U.S. Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman was accused of routinely ditching his “protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children,” in a nearby park according to an internal memo written by a chief inspector general investigator. A State Department security official stationed in Beirut was accused of engaging in multiple sexual assaults. Further, a U.S. Embassy official was removed for allegedly trading visas for sexual favors.
As CBS News first reported last year, at least seven of Clinton’s security agents routinely hired prostitutes on official trips overseas. Their behavior was described as “endemic.” Although the agents were eventually reassigned, they weren’t seriously punished. When investigations were launched into misconduct, they were immediately shut down by Clinton’s former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills.
The female whistleblowers who spoke out against and exposed the abuse were retaliated against for doing so. Whistleblower Kerry Howard was “run out of the foreign service,” stripped of her job and was bullied after exposing U.S. Consul General Donald Moore allegedly engaged in sexual activities with women inside his government office and with call girls in Naples.
This is just a snap shot of Clinton’s legacy of defending rapists and sexual predators. She’s done it for decades yet somehow has been portrayed as a women’s rights champion. Her record proves the opposite. Hillary Clinton is America’s most famous enabler of abusive and powerful men.
