Skip to comments.Where Are They Now: The Stars Of The Clinton Impeachment Scandal

News emerged this week that Edward Snowden had obtained legal counsel from Plato Cacheris, who worked on high-profile espionage cases and also represented Monica Lewinsky. This news got us wondering about what Cacheris and other major stars of the 1998-1999 Bill Clinton impeachment have been up to since the biggest presidential scandal since Watergate.
To refresh your memory: The saga can be traced to an allegedly shady 1978 real estate deal the Clintons were involved in through their company Whitewater Development Corp.
Kenneth W. Starr was appointed in 1994 as independent counsel to investigate Whitewater, which never resulted in criminal charges against the Clintons. However, about four years later he dug into more salacious parts of Clinton's past when Pentagon employee Linda Tripp told him about her friend Monica Lewinsky's affair with the president.
Clinton famously denied having "sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky," a former White House intern who was just 21 during their affair in 1995. However, Clinton was forced to fess up after she produced a stained dress that commemorated their fling. He was later impeached by Congress for lying about the affair, meaning he was formally charged with misconduct.
Clinton also allegedly urged Lewinsky to hide their affair after she was subpoenaed by lawyers for Paula Jones, a former Arkansas state employee who accused Clinton of sexual harassment.
As you probably recall, the Senate acquitted Clinton of both perjury and obstruction of justice in 1999. We know what Clinton has been up to since then. Here's what the other big Monicagate players have been doing, starting with Lewinsky herself:

We know where he is now.
BTW, that reminds me: Is Monica going to come out and endorse Hitlery for POTUS?
Still six feet under I imagine.
Is that Paula Jones?

Nope,the Dems left a bad taste in her mouth.
I met Ken Starr at an event and got his autograph. Told him he was one of my heros. He seemed unsure as to what to say and signed reluctantly...
“Nope,the Dems left a bad taste in her mouth.”
Especially from the “Bent One”.
