“He was lucky to have her as a lawyer … In terms of what’s good for the little girl? It would have been hell on the victim. But that wasn’t Hillary’s problem.”

It should have been “Hillary’s problem”. The fact that she “vigorously” advocated for her client to the extent of saying things which were just untrue about a 12 year old girl who had been - brutally- raped is not “appropriate”. Plea bargaining away justice for a brutal (nearly murderous) rapist is not something to be proud of. The way that lawyers actually operate has little to do with justice, or truth.
