New audio recordings have surfaced of Hillary Clinton from the early 80’s, which detail her candid assessment of one of the most controversial legal cases of her career: the defence of a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl.
She had agreed to act as defence attorney for Thomas Alfred Taylor, the pedophile accused of rape.
The recordings, which date from 1983-1987 and have never before been reported, include Clinton’s suggestion that she knew Taylor was guilty at the time. She says she used a legal technicality to plead her client, who faced 30 years to life in prison, down to a lesser charge. The recording and transcript, along with court documents pertaining to the case, are embedded below.
