Look, I know that everyone is entitled to a defense attorney if charged with a crime. Having said that, it is the careless laughing Hillary who discusses her defense of a child rapist that is pure Hillary. My understanding of the law which is less than perfect, if the defense attorney knows the client is guilty they should remove themselves from the case.The audio is a six-minute winding conversation, and if you don’t have the time or patience, wander over to the Free Beacon for a good read on our gal.
