Well, another Clinton enemy is gone.
Ken Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Bill Clinton, has passed away.
According to reports, he died from “complications” due to surgery.
Starr’s family announced his passing on Tuesday afternoon.
His son Randall stated, “We are deeply saddened with the loss of our dear and loving Father and Grandfather, whom we admired for his prodigious work ethic, but who always put his family first.
“The love, energy, endearing sense of humor, and fun-loving interest Dad exhibited to each of us was truly special, and we cherish the many wonderful memories we were able to experience with him.”
Starr was appointed to investigate Bill Clinton in 1994 regarding the Whitewater real estate scandal.
While there were no prosecutions from that investigation, it did open the door to Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades.
Eventually, that path led to Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton’s impeachment in the House.
Starr always pushed back on his investigation being politically motivated, stating, “I was assigned to do a job by the attorney general, and that was to find out whether crimes were committed in this (Paula Jones) sexual harassment lawsuit.
“The whole idea of equal justice under law means that you’ve got to play by the rules. It has nothing to do with the underlying subject matter. You just tell the truth.”
Starr resigned his position in 1999, citing “intense politicization of the independent counsel process.”
Rest in peace, Mr. Starr.
