Ken Starr gives his take on the Trump special counsel
Former Clinton independent advice provides insights into the understandings of inquiry on ‘America’s Newsroom.’
The former independent counsel Ken Starr writes in his new memoir that he considered – but ultimately abandoned-the idea of perjury charges against then-first lady Hillary Clinton after their “absurd” deposition with the investigators in 1995.
“I was angry about Mrs. Clinton’s performance, and was still considering the matter before the Washington grand jury for a possible indictment on perjury,” writes Starr in “the contempt, the: A Memoir of the Clinton investigation,” and the books shelves Tuesday.
Fox News received an advance copy of the book. In it, Starr, told a Jan. 22, 1995, deposition with both President Bill Clinton and the first lady on the suicide of White house adviser Vince Foster, and other issues arising from the whitewater country a lot of investigation.
Mindful of the President writes the answers in this interview, Starr, “Clinton bobbed and weaved, but was always pleasant to answer how he avoided that.”
The first lady, though, was a different story.
“In the period of three hours, so, by our count about a hundred times claimed that they ‘remember’ or ‘remind’,” Starr writes. “This proposal for an outright lie. To be sure, the human memory is known to be not infallible, but their tight performance struck us as absurd.”
But Rigidly he finally decided against the prosecution of the criminal charges against Hillary Clinton, because it would have been hard to prove that she lied.
“[P]roving that someone lied, knowingly, when she said: ‘I remember’ or ‘I can’t remember,’ is very difficult, especially if this person is the First lady,” he said. “What was clear is that Mrs. Clinton could not be bothered to make it appear as if she’s telling the truth.”
A spokesman for Hillary Clinton did not immediately return a request for comment.
Publishers billing Starr’s book as the first time, he has his full and honest perspective on the investigation that dug in the Monica Lewinsky scandal and led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
Starr, in the book of an introduction that says that both of the Clinton’s “knowledge came to pass that occasions a future course of action, the contempt for our esteemed judiciary.”
In another part of the book, Starr writes how he, as solicitor general of the United States, he traveled to Little Rock in 1992, when Clinton ran for President. He remembered picked up by a member of then-Gov. Clinton’s security detail, said to him, “salacious story after salacious story about the Governor of the infamous out-of-school antics.”
“The trooper is proposed very specific details that the stories have not been made,” Starr writes.
He writes that the soldier told him of Hillary Clinton, the “salty language” when they “discovered a secret episode in the guest-hut of the governor’s mansion.”
“A former beauty pageant queen, the trooper told me, had Bill Clinton is a guest,” Starr writes.
He adds, “little did I know that in less than two years after the Governor became President, I would be tasked” with investigating Clinton. Similar allegations from Arkansas state troopers later publicly in the controversy known as ” trooper gate.’
At another point in the book, Starr Vince Foster’s death says followed, “me”, as he recalls the investigation of the suicide of longtime Clinton associate, the inspired conspiracy theories.
“In many ways, I was very much like him: seriously, the law, conscientious, and loyal to a fault. Foster needle felting-from the media, I knew only too well, could be brutal, especially for someone not used to the public eye,” writes Starr Foster.
At several points in the memoir, he refers to then-associate Brett Kavanaugh, of the current Supreme Court nominee who once worked for the Starr on the Clinton investigation. He writes the report they produced, on Foster’s death, saying it was “developed primarily” by Kavanaugh, “to trust an important member of our brain.”
He also refers to Kavanaugh as the “chief author” of how his team designed the so-called “Starr Report” detailing the results of its investigation in Clinton.
Starr briefly cites Kavanaugh’s appointment to the high court, said the President of Trump shows the selection of the 53-year-old judge as President “to longevity nominees in their Supreme Court.”
Reflection on his work, Starr said he “deeply” regrets that he “took on the Lewinsky phase of the investigation.”
“But at the same time, as I see it twenty years later, there was virtually no alternative to my, to do so,” Starr writes.
Rigid, conservative, reminds also handed over to beings, the seat in 1990 by President George H. W. Bush for the Supreme Court, went to David Souter, a reliable liberal.
He says he believes, he would have finally, the appeal to the Supreme court by another Republican President “had I not on the Whitewater investigation, and, above all, the much-criticized Lewinsky investigation.”
“Maybe,” Starr writes, “but we’ll never know.”
