Trump civil rights official listed Clinton attacks as qualification on resume: report

An official who now works for the Trump administration listed attacking former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton as some of her “top five qualifications” to work in the Trump administration, according to a new review of her résumé on Thursday.

Candice Jackson, who is deputy assistant secretary in the civil rights division at the Department of Education, claimed on her résumé bringing to a 2016 presidential debate a group of women who had accused former President Clinton of rape, according to Politico.

Politico obtained the résumé from a watchdog group that acquired it using a Freedom of Information Act request.

Also listed under her activities during Hillary Clinton’s campaign against now-President Trump, Jackson boasted of her “creation of ads and videos attacking Hillary Clinton’s lifelong corruption and hypocritical claim to defend women and children.” 

The attorney joined the Department of Education in April, where she aids Education Secretary Betsy DeVos in handling cases involving sexual assaults on college campuses. 

Jackson previously came under fire for saying that 90 percent of such assault cases “fall into the category of ‘we were both drunk,’ ” and that most cases lack evidence or are accusations of men overpowering women. She apologized for the claim, calling her words “flippant.”
