The audio, obtained by The Washington Free Beacon, is of Clinton in the 1980s discussing a case she took on as a young lawyer in Arkansas, in which she represented a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl.
In the interview with Arkansas journalist Roy Reed, Clinton says, “Do you remember that case where I represented that guy? It was a fascinating case. […] The guy was accused of raping a 12-year-old girl. Of course he claimed that he didn’t. All this stuff. He took a lie detector test. I had him take a polygraph, which he passed, which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs (laughter).”
She goes on to describe how the man got off by taking a plea deal with time served in county jail.
