“Ken Starr, the prosecutor whose investigation led to the impeachment of former U.S. President Bill Clinton in 1998, has died at age 76, his family said in a statement on Tuesday. Starr died on Tuesday in Houston from complications from surgery, his family said. Starr came to national prominence as the special prosecutor who investigated the sex-and-perjury scandal that led to then-President Clinton’s impeachment. The investigation into Clinton’s affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky produced a book-length official document for Congress that became a bestseller when commercially sold as ‘The Starr Report.’ Offering startling glimpses of sexual trysts intermingled with the densest legalese, the report found Clinton’s attempt to cover up the affair offered grounds for impeachment.” (09/13/22)
