Kenneth Starr says he doesn&#039t want to apologize to Monica Lewinsky

Kenneth Starr says he doesn&#039t require to apologize to Monica Lewinsky

Former independent counsel Kenneth Starr mentioned Sunday that he does not think he owes Monica Lewinsky an apology for her treatment throughout his investigation of former President Bill Clinton.

In an write-up published in the March situation of Vanity Fair magazine, Lewinsky described coming face-to-face with Starr for the initial time at a New York City restaurant on Christmas Eve 2017.

Lewinsky described how Starr’s staff &quothad hustled me into a hotel area close to the Pentagon and informed me that unless I cooperated with them I could face 27 years in prison.&quot She also wrote that Starr and his team had &quot[threatened] to prosecute my mom (if she didn&rsquot disclose the private confidences I had shared with her), [hinted] that they would investigate my dad&rsquos health-related practice, and even [deposed] my aunt, with whom I was consuming dinner that evening.

&quotAnd all due to the fact [Starr], standing in front of me, had decided that a frightened young woman could be beneficial in his bigger case against the president of the United States.&quot

Lewinsky says she told Starr that &quotthough I wish I had created various alternatives back then, I wish that you and your workplace had produced distinct options, also.&quot

Starr’s response, she wrote, was to say &quotI know. It was unfortunate.&quot

On Sunday, Starr answered &quotno&quot when asked on CBS’ &quotFace the Nation&quot if Lewinsky deserved an apology.

&quotMonica — and I want her all the ideal — her life has been disrupted,&quot Starr stated. &quotBut the evidence is the proof, and she was portion, as we saw it, of an work to obstruct justice and to commit perjury.&quot

This year marks the 20th anniversary of when the sexual partnership between Lewinsky, then a White Residence intern, and Clinton was created public. The affair’s disclosure led to Clinton becoming just the second president ever impeached by Congress.

&quotWhatever folks consider of the [Whitewater] investigation in the course of the Monica Lewinsky phase, the president had to eventually concede that he had not conducted himself as he ought to in a very serious matter when he was under oath&quot Starr told CBS. &quotThat’s the important. It was all about the rule of law.&quot
