Former independent counsel Kenneth Starr said on Sunday that he think he owes Monica Lewinsky an apology for their treatment during his investigation of former President Bill Clinton.
In an article published in the March issue of Vanity Fair magazine, Lewinsky described, a face-to-face with Starr for the first time in a restaurant in New York City on Christmas eve of 2017.
Lewinsky described how Rigid is the employee “had worked hard to put me in a hotel room in the vicinity of the Pentagon, and informed me that unless I worked with them I could face 27 years in prison.” You also wrote that Starr and his team had “[threatened] to follow my mom (if you didn’t want to divulge private confidential I had in common with her), [indicated] that they would investigate, my father, the medical practice, and [sold] my aunt, with whom I at dinner that night.
“And all because [Starr], standing in front of me, had decided that a timid young woman could be useful in his case against the President of the United States.”
Lewinsky says she told Starr, “although I wish, I had different opportunities, then I hope that you and your office a variety of ways to had made.”
Starr’s response, she wrote, was to say: “I know. It was unfortunate.”
On Sunday, Starr said: no “” when asked on CBS’ “Face the Nation” when Lewinsky deserves an apology.
“Monica — and I wish her all the best-your life has been disrupted,” Starr said. “But the proof is the proof, and part of it was, as we have seen, an effort to hinder commit the justice and perjury.”
This year, the 20-year anniversary, marks the anniversary of when the sexual relationship between Lewinsky, then a White House Intern, and Clinton was made public. The affair of the publication led to Clinton only the second President, of the accused ever, by the Congress.
“What the people think of the [whitewater] investigation during the Monica Lewinsky phase, the President finally had to admit that he carried out himself as he should in a very serious matter, as he is under oath,” Starr told CBS. “That is the key. It’s all about the rule of law.”
