    During his 1992 campaign for the presidency, Bill Clinton was
    fond of promising America, “You get two for the price of one,”
    indicating Hillary Clinton would act as his co-president.

    But the nation got much more than it bargained for, as the top
    power couple brought a load of baggage with them into the White
    House from their days in Arkansas.

    After the Clintons moved into the presidential mansion, the
    political scandals multiplied – from use of the IRS and FBI to
    target political opponents to stalking and harassing subjects of
    Bill Clinton’s sexual advances and even attempts to loot
    taxpayer-funded items from the White House. Americans also
    witnessed capers such as Travelgate, Chinagate, Filegate and

    Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades and subsequent impeachment by
    the U.S. House of Representatives on charges of perjury and
    obstruction of justice consumed more than a year of American
    public life and bitterly divided the nation.

    In the years since the memorable Clinton presidency, Hillary has
    brought America Emailgate and the Benghazi scandal, among
    others. New developments in the Clinton Foundation scandals
    emerges almost daily.

    Now, it’s Hillary’s “turn” to be president, according to her
    Democrat supporters.

    But in 2015, America is still apparently suffering from “Clinton
    fatigue.” Results from a Quinnipiac poll published in April
    revealed between 49 and 56 percent of voters in three
    significant swing states – Colorado, Virginia and Iowa – believe
    Hillary is neither honest nor trustworthy.

    Even former California Democratic Party Chairman Bill Press told
    WND that controversies surrounding Hillary should convince
    members of his own party an uncontested coronation of Clinton as
    the party’s 2016 nominee for the White House is a very risky
    idea and should encourage other Democrats to throw their hats in
    the ring.

    Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican candidate for president, said
    Sunday he believes voters will reject Hillary because of the
    “cloud of constant scandal she brings to the political process.”

    Rubio told Fox News Sunday, “Unfortunately, both under her
    husband’s presidency, her time in the Department of State, her
    campaign for the president last time and even now, there seems
    to be this cloud of constant scandal and things that distract us
    from the core issues of the moment.”

    Hillary’s “drama” could become a distraction, Rubio warned, at a
    time when the stakes are high for America in the 2016 election.

    “I just think that at this hinge moment in our history, where we
    are asked to make a transition from the past into this new
    future, with all the challenges and the opportunities of our
    time that we really – the American people are not at a point now
    where they are going to be supportive of more drama surrounding
    the political process,” he said.

    In 2003, ABC News’ Barbara Walters referenced numerous Clinton
    scandals from Whitewater to Travelgate and the death of Hillary
    law partner Vince Foster in an interview with then-Sen. Clinton.

    Walters asked Hillary, “How did you get in this mess where your
    whole credibility is being questioned?”

    Hillary’s response: “Oh, I ask myself that every day, Barbara,
    because it’s very surprising and confusing to me.”

    With Hillary making another run for president, don’t get caught
    up in the lies and spin! In “Hillary Unhinged: In Her Own
    Words,” find out who the true Hillary is with this raw and
    humorous collection of quotes that pitilessly underscores her

    With the prospect of another “two-for-one” Clinton presidency
    looming, is America ready for a repeat of the Bill and Hillary
    “drama” in the White House?

    If, as psychologists say, “The best predictor of future behavior
    is past behavior,” then a fresh look at the top 20 scandals
    involving Hillary is in order.

    17) Hillary laughs about defending child rapist

    Hillary Clinton in 1975, the year she defended 41-year-old
    Thomas Alfred Taylor, who had been accused of raping a 12-year-
    old child

    As WND reported, Hillary explained her defense of a child-rape
    suspect as just part of the job. But she hasn’t explained her
    laughing about his passing of a lie-detector test, which
    “destroyed” her faith in such evaluations.

    “Once I was appointed I fulfilled that obligation,” she said in
    an interview with Mumsnet, a U.K. community of parents providing
    and sharing information on a variety of subjects and issues.

    In the video she is asked, “As a lawyer, you defended the rapist
    of a 12-year-old girl, calling the victim ’emotionally unstable’
    and saying that girls have a tendency to ‘exaggerate or
    romanticize sexual experiences especially when they come from
    disorganized families.'”


    Clinton said: “When I was a 27-year-old attorney doing legal aid
    work at the law school where I taught in Fayetteville, Arkansas,
    I was appointed by the local judge to represent a criminal
    defendant accused of rape. I asked to be relieved of that
    responsibility. But I was not and I had a professional duty to
    represent my client to the best of my ability, which I did.

    “He later pled guilty to a lesser included offense. When you’re
    a lawyer you often don’t have the choice as to who you will
    represent, and by the very nature of criminal law there will be
    those who you represent you don’t approve of, but at least in
    our system, you have an obligation and once I was appointed, I
    fulfilled that obligation.”

    However, she did not address the reports of unearthed recordings
    in which she almost boasts of knowing of her client’s guilt and
    laughing about the case. The tapes reveal her discussing the
    case of Thomas Alfred Taylor, then 41, who was accused of raping
    a 12-year-old in Springdale, Arkansas, on May 10, 1975.

    “It was a fascinating case, it was a very interesting case,”
    Clinton said on the tape. “This guy was accused of raping a 12-
    year-old. Course he claimed that he didn’t, and all this stuff.
    … I had him take a polygraph, which he passed – which forever
    destroyed my faith in polygraphs.” She laughed at the statement.

    Listen to the audio of the interview. (Warning: Description of
    the case may disturb some listeners):

    The Washington Free Beacon report on the recordings also
    confirmed she was laughing several other times while discussing
    the case, including “when discussing the crime lab’s accidental
    destruction of DNA evidence that tied Taylor to the crime.”

    Published profiles of the case reveal that Clinton’s strategy at
    the time was to attack the 12-year-old. She submitted an
    affidavit that said she was told the girl was “emotionally
    unstable” and was viewed as having a “tendency to seek out older
    men and engage in fantasizing.” She claimed the child “in the
    past made false accusations” and she exhibited “an unusual
    stubbornness and temper when she does not get her way.”

    The woman who says she was raped by the defendant blasted
    Hillary in 2014, accusing her of intentionally lying about her
    in court documents. “Hillary Clinton took me through hell,” she
    told the Daily Beast.

    Sounds like Obama and his former lawyer "wife"...
