MD Sen. Cheryl Kagan Claims She Was Sexually Assaulted by Lobbyist, Video Shows He Hugged Her
Hillary Clinton on Thursday said she was "distraught and appalled" in response to Wednesday's assault on a protestor at a Donald Trump rally. In an interview with Rachel Maddow she stated that security at these events should handle demonstrators in an "appropriate manner," and defended the right to protest. She called the event "distressing."
But her concern for the right to dissent apparently only extends to her opponents' events.
When a 71-year-old man wearing a Veterans for Peace t-shirt, stood silently and peacefully with his back turned to her while she gave a speech, she allowed security, directly under her nose, to brutally assault him and remove him. She had every opportunity to say something to stop the assault, and she never paused in her speech. To this day she has expressed no regret, no "distress," or expression of concern over this February 2011 event. The man who was attacked was veteran Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst who used to provide the President's daily briefings, and is now a peace activist.
Even after her close adviser, Sidney Blumenthal, wrote her to recommend an apology be issued, she stayed silent -- and has not apologized to this day.
