Skandal um Prozess wegen Vergewaltigung: "Hillary Clinton hat mich durch die Hölle gezerrt!"

Bei den US-amerikanischen Demokraten scheint mir Hillary Clinton als erste feministische Präsidentin bereits fest eingeplant – wobei ihre Kampagne allerdings plötzlich überraschend schlecht zu laufen beginnt. Und jetzt kommt auch noch ein Vorfall aus ihrer Zeit als Anwältin dazwischen:

Hillary Clinton is known as a champion of women and girls, but one woman who says she was raped as a 12-year-old in Arkansas doesn’t think Hillary deserves that honor. This woman says Hillary smeared her and used dishonest tactics to successfully get her attacker off with a light sentence—even though, she claims, Clinton knew he was guilty.

The victim in the 1975 sexual abuse case that became Clinton’s first criminal defense case as a 27-year-old lawyer has only spoken to the media once since her attack, a contested, short interaction with a reporter in 2008, during Clinton’s last presidential campaign run. Now 52, she wants to speak out after hearing Clinton talk about her case on newly discovered audio recordings from the 1980s, unearthed by the Washington Free Beacon and made public this week.

In a long, emotional interview with The Daily Beast, she accused Clinton of intentionally lying about her in court documents, going to extraordinary lengths to discredit evidence of the rape, and later callously acknowledging and laughing about her attackers’ guilt on the recordings.

Hier geht es weiter.

In den deutschen Medien finde ich nichts über diesen Skandal, wohl aber schon vor drei Tagen in der Schweiz: Als Hillary einem Kinderschänder half. In Großbritannien berichtet die Daily Mail.
