Hillary Clinton tweeted on Wednesday, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”

So in the spirit of that, here’s a reminder that she lied to the American public about her emails and smeared rape victims’ credibility.

In an attempt to criticize Donald Trump and the new CEO of his campaign, Stephen K. Bannon, Clinton tweeted, “With just 83 days until Election Day, Trump hired one of the most extreme right-wing voices to run his campaign.”

The tweet was accompanied by a graphic with the Maya Angelou quote, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.” (RELATED: Trump Shakes Up Campaign; Taps Breitbart News Executive To Run Campaign)

Last July, during a back-and-forth between Rep. Trey Gowdy and James Comey, the FBI director confirmed that Clinton lied multiple times about her email and private server use. (RELATED: Comey Confirms Hillary Clinton Lied To The Public About Her Emails [VIDEO])

For example, Gowdy asked Comey, “Secretary Clinton said she used just one device. Was that true?” (RELATED: GOP Lawmakers Lay Out Perjury Case Against Clinton)

According to Comey, Clinton “used multiple devices during the four years of her term as secretary of state.”

In the same congressional testimony, Comey also debunked Clinton’s claim that all work related emails were returned to the State Department as well as her claim that her lawyers read every one of her emails. (RELATED: Child Rape Victim To ‘Liar’ Hillary: ‘I Heard You On Tape Laughing’)

In another instance of Clinton showing the American public “who they are,” as a lawyer in 1975, she defended Thomas Alfred Taylor, who raped Kathy Shelton, then 12 years old. According to Shelton, Clinton is a “liar” who smeared her reputation, adding that she heard Clinton “on tape laughing.”

More recently, on Clinton’s campaign website, the statement that rape victims had the “right to be believed” was deleted after Juanita Broaddrick, tweeted, “I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.” (RELATED: Hillary’s Website Scrubbed Of Statement Saying Rape Victims Have A ‘Right To Be Believed’)
