The Responsibility of a U.S. Attorney

If you follow THIS LINK you will find an article where Ann Coulter accuses Bill Clinton of being a rapist and a sexual abuser. These are very strong accusations against a former president. (1)

Ann Coulter graduated from ​Cornell University School of Arts & Sciences in Michigan, and has practiced law in New York City. (2) 

An attorney in any state has an obligation to uphold the truth, and to seek justice. This article reads like a gossip column from a supermarket tabloid. 

This sort of slander with no available reference is unacceptable.

This seems like a cheap tactic to attack the integrity of Hilary Clinton. 

Regardless of why this was published, the point is that if a barred attorney makes these kind of accusations, they have an obligation to the public to back them up with evidence of some sort. 

There may be evidence we are unaware of, but if so it should be presented. 

When it comes to what is right and what is wrong opinions can sometimes vary, but when it comes to what is legal and what is not, an attorney has a made a commitment to be able to differentiate. That is their job and their voice is stronger than that of an average citizen.
