The folks at Fox Nation are working overtime to unearth scandals they can attribute to Hillary Clinton. Lately their crack(head) reporters have discovered that, although Clinton did leave the White House in debt, she later made lots of money (Oh my!). They ferreted out that she is no longer young (You don’t say?). They alleged that she had suffered brain damage (Uh-oh!). And they continually try (and fail) to blame her for Benghazi. But now they may have hit on a charge that could stick: Hillary Clinton is an ethical attorney! (Yikes!)

The Fox Nationalists posted an article that they sourced to the ultra-rightist Washington Free Beacon announcing the discovery of “The Hillary Tapes” from deep within the – well, the very public archives of the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. The release of these tapes were intended to tarnish Clinton’s reputation as an advocate for abused women and children. The article began saying that…
“In 1975, the same year she married Bill, Hillary Clinton agreed to serve as the court-appointed attorney for Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year-old accused of raping the child after luring her into a car.
“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 full story of the Taylor defense calls into question Clinton’s narrative of her early years as a devoted women and children’s advocate in Arkansas—a narrative the 2016 presidential frontrunner continues to promote on her current book tour.”
Apparently the Fox Nationalists, and their ignorant pals at the Free Beacon, are unaware of the constitutional provision that grants all defendants the right to competent counsel. It is the responsibility of the attorney to work on behalf of the client’s best interests regardless of guilt or innocence. And in this case Clinton did just that after being assigned the case by the court. It would have been unethical to do anything else.
What’s more, the “technicality” that Clinton employed was that the lab contracted by the prosecutor had lost the material evidence in the case. That’s a pretty significant technicality. The defense can’t examine or rebut, nor can the state convict, on evidence that doesn’t exist.
So Clinton did her job as the law requires her to do. And for demonstrating those strong principles Fox tries to twist the story into something negative. Instead, they expose themselves as opponents of the Constitution and those who respect it. Descending to these depths of dishonesty in order to demean Clinton tells us something about Fox in the clearest terms: They are staggeringly scared of Clinton and the prospect of her candidacy in 2016.

Well I have to disagree with this: “Descending to these depths of dishonesty in order to demean Clinton tells us something about Fox in the clearest terms: They are staggeringly scared of Clinton…”
Because they sink to those depths daily on every issue.
See! This is PROOFthat Hillary hates children and
women and babies and puppies and LOOOOVES rapists and…and…and BENGHAAAAZZZZEEEEEE!
A child rapist was able to walk away from prison after a few months.
You know, as much as conservatives claim to love the Constitution, and it is a great document, if not the Word of God, they sure do seem to hate it when it applies to EVERYBODY. It may very well be that this sentence is disgusting, painful, hard to understand, whatever, but it has NOTHING to do with Hillary Clinton’s morality. ANY lawyer worth his or her degree would have done exactly the same thing. It is THE LAW. What about the prosecutor who screwed up? Or the lab? They are far more responsible for this sentence than Clinton! If I were the victim or the victim’s family, I would be furious…AT THEM!
I remember when a spate of Republicans were under investigation/ indictment back in the nineties. It was really funny when it was reported that they hired REALLY LIBERAL law firms to represent them! Because when you’re on trial–guilty or not–you want a really good liberal trial lawyer to defend you (and hopefully judge and jury as well!), not a conservative!
This shows not only how stupid right-wingers are but also how Fox News knows how stupid its audience is. Only the ignorant, uneducated, and uninformed fail to apprehend that it is an attorney’s duty to represent a client with utmost zealousness. Once Ms. Clinton had been appointed by the court to defend the client (she did not seek out this client herself but was ordered by the court to represent him), it was her ethical duty as an attorney to do everything within her ability she could to prevent a conviction or sentence. For the benefit of Foxtards, this is what criminal defense lawyers do. Laywers have a duty to defend their clients zealously even if they think or even know that the client is guilty. Like all criminal defendants, Ms. Clinton’s client had a constitutional right under the Sixth Amendment to effective assistance of counsel. If she had failed to represent her client zealously, not only could she have been sued for malpractice, but any conviction would have been overturned for ineffective assistance of counsel. Had she compromised his defense because she thought he was guilty, she could have been disciplined or even disbarred. So, Scott, you little Foxtard, you are fucking ignorant. And since you are ignorant, you opinions aren’t worth shit. Get yourself educated and maybe you won’t be so proud of being so fucking stupid.
