It is the skeleton in the closet that Hillary Clinton talks very little about.
Back in 1975, Clinton was a court-appointed defense lawyer for the 41-year-old Thomas Alfred Taylor.
Taylor was guilty of raping a 12-year-old Kathy Shelton.
It would be the first case for Clinton as a courtroom lawyer and she would later state that she wanted the court to excuse her from having to represent Taylor, which was denied by the judge.
Subsequently, there were "procedural failures" in regards to the trial evidence on the prosecution side of the aisle. Hillary would then argue for a plea bargain for Taylor, lessening his charges from rape to the mere "unlawful fondling of a minor."
But what really happened behind the scenes during Shelton's trial? Did Hillary know that Thomas was a rapist? Did she work to conceal forensic evidence that would have caused her to lose the case?
