  • Bob Mueller vs. Ken Starr: A Classic Media Double Standard

    Liberal reporters are scandalized by what they say is President Trump’s effort to “discredit” and “undermine” special counsel Robert Mueller, worried that it could presage an attempt to “remove Mueller, or end his investigation.” But when President Bill Clinton was being investigated by Ken Starr, journalists applauded Democratic and White House attacks on the independent counsel, and frequently joined in themselves. Today’s journalists seem appalled by attempts by the President and his allies that question Mueller’s credibility. Washington Post reporters Devlin Barrett and Sean Sullivan sounded the alarm in a front-page story on December 7: “Several law enforcement officials said...
  • Ken Starr: If Mueller Goes Beyond Russia, He’s Gone Too Far

    The former special prosecutor said that Mueller would exceed his mandate if he investigates issues beyond Russia. Former Special Prosecutor Ken Starr said on CNN Friday that if Special Counsel Robert Mueller begins to investigate matters related to President Trump beyond Russia, then the former FBI director would exceed his mandate to investigate. Host Alisyn Camerota asked Starr if Mueller would go too far if he investigates a hypothetical real estate deal with Russians in the 1990s. “Well, Alisyn, you used the key word there, and you said ‘Russian,'” Starr said. “Does this relate to Russia’s activity?” Starr said the...
  • Clinton has been burying emails since she was First Lady

    While the State Department’s own internal probe found former Secretary Hillary Clinton violated federal recordkeeping laws, it’s not the first time she and her top aides shielded her e-mail from public disclosure while serving in a government position. As first lady, Hillary was embroiled in another scheme to bury sensitive White House e-mails, known internally as “Project X.” In 1999, as investigators looked into Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate and other scandals involving the then-first lady, it was discovered that more than 1 million subpoenaed e-mails were mysteriously “lost” due to a “glitch” in a West Wing computer server. The massive hole...

    How could a suicide victim be found with TWO bullet wounds? As Donald Trump revives the two-decade old Vince Foster case, the charge that the cause of death of the top aide and close friend of the Clintons may not have been suicide has once again been dismissed as the stuff of “right-wing conspiracy theory.” But less than three months ago, WND reported a resignation letter surfaced from the lead investigator in independent counsel Robert Fiske’s investigation of the Foster case, Miguel Rodriguez, outlining evidence of his charge that the case was fixed. Thirteen years ago, WND reported Rodriguez, an...

    First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday launched a vigorous counterattack on behalf of her husband's beleaguered presidency, declaring that the president is the victim of a "politically motivated" prosecutor allied with a "vast right-wing conspiracy." Using a nationally televised interview as her forum, she assumed a familiar and crucial role as Bill Clinton's first defender. She said she knew him better than anyone in the world, still loved him, and fully believed his denial of allegations that he had entered into a sexual relationship with a White House intern and had urged the young woman to lie about it. The...

    Dems’ Ex-Machina: Clinton Machine was Bill’s alone by Daniel Clark Anytime Hillary Clinton runs for office, we can count on political analysts to ask how her opponents will fare against the Clinton Machine. In reality, they don’t have to. There’s a reason it isn’t called the Rodham Machine. The Clinton Machine was Bill’s, and his alone. The Clinton Machine functioned as a synchronized effort among Bill’s perpetual campaign team, the Democratic Party and the media. This may sound simple, since they were in general political agreement to start with, but the system would have broken down if the messages being...

    In the years since their bitter battle, both former President Bill Clinton and independent counsel Ken Starr have predicted they’d be vindicated in the history books. Now the first definitive history of the Clinton scandal is about to arrive — and neither man can be completely happy about his portrayal in its pages. “The Death of American Virtue,” due out in February, asserts that Clinton had yet another extramarital affair, with Susan McDougal of Whitewater fame. Also in the book, Monica Lewinsky tells author Ken Gormley that she believes the president lied under oath when he described their encounters. At...

    SAN FRANCISCO - Lawyers for a death row inmate, including former Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth Starr, sent fake letters from jurors asking California’s governor to spare the man’s life, prosecutors said Friday. The jurors denied they thought Michael Morales deserved clemency because some of the testimony at his trial may have been fabricated, said Nathan Barankin, spokesman for Attorney General Bill Lockyer. “We showed each person the declaration on their behalf and they all said they didn’t say that,” Barankin said.

    So Bill Clinton has written a 957-page book about his life. It appears to be the literary equivalent of the movie "Airplane!" in which the main character, Ted Striker, kept trying to bore captive passengers with his life story, as they all killed themselves rather than listen to him drone on and on and on. Luckily, nobody actually has to read the entire Clinton memoirs. Nobody should, given Clinton's fathomless credibility problems. Millions of Clinton fans will buy it, and maybe one or two of them will even finish it. But let's be clear about this book. It's an opportunity to...

    At last it can be told. The mystery of why New York Sen. Hillary Clinton was willing to sacrifice her self-respect and her dignity to stay in a humiliating marriage to ex-President Clinton is a mystery no longer. She did it to save America. In her book "Living History," Mrs. Clinton recalls that after she learned about Monica Lewinsky, "I knew what I did and said in the next days and weeks would influence not just Bill's future and mine, but also America's." "Bill's Presidency, the institutional Presidency and the integrity of the Constitution hung in the balance," Hillary recalls,...

    ...Iraq - low on the danger list One of My Life's most arresting passages describes the handover meeting Clinton had with his successor in December 2000. George Bush reckoned the biggest security issues he would face would be national missile defence and Iraq. "I told him that, based on the last eight years, I thought his biggest security problems, in order, would be Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida; the absence of peace in the Middle East; the standoff between nuclear powers India and Pakistan, and the ties of the Pakistanis to the Taliban and al-Qaida; North Korea; and then Iraq."...

    LINK“Over The Top” By Peggy NoonanWhile anyone on the left would immediately discount the source because she was one of President Reagan’s speech writers, they’d be smart to at least look at this one. Whether it’s bombing a recruiting station as a demonstration of their support for peace and “the troops,” or calls on liberal websites demanding that the DNC convention “re-create 68,” or perhaps it’s the growing Dem vs Dem punditry on tv…it really doesn’t matter. The point is the same: there is a deep fracture in the Democratic Party between Senator Obama’s supporters and Senator Clinton’s supporters. This...

    Olbermann Denies Liberal Bias, Insists in Politics He's 'Neutral' During an appearance on Friday's Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann acknowledged accusations of liberal bias, but denied they were true, preferring to describe himself politically as "correct" and "neutral," without a "rooting interest" in who wins elections. Ignoring criticism from the MRC that, among other instances of bias during the 1998 Monica Lewinsky scandal, he once compared former Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr to Nazi war criminal Heinrich Himmler, Olbermann claimed that he was never accused of liberal bias while covering the scandal. Olbermann: "I've been...

    Them Dem"s can fight. When one of their own is in trouble, watch out. The gloves come off. When Ken Starr was the special prosecutor in the Clinton investigation, Starr became the story and the villain. The Democrats with the help of a willing press investigated him. They started a media campaign to destroy him and nearly did. Remember the mantra, Four Years and Forty Million Dollars, He was accused of being obsessed with sex, he was a partisan etc. Even Hollywood jumped on board. Who Can Forget Alec Baldwin's "We would stone Henry Hide to death and we would...

She got it through deception. She fooled President Reagan into thinking she was a supporter of the Constitution as written, and she did it with the help of a conservative Republican icon named Kenneth Starr. Starr is best known as the independent counsel who investigated Bill Clinton's crimes as president. As such, he set himself...

    There have been several posts recently advocating a plan to engage in illegal activities, that is, to break the new law restricting our free speech rights. Though I sympathize with the posters, Free Republic is not to be used to advocate illegal activities, thus these posts have all been deleted. However, should this clearly unconstitutional bill become the law of the land, I may choose to break it myself, but I would never encourage anyone else to break it. And I definitely would not recommend anyone use the internet to engage in the planning or execution of illegal acts. This...
