The Republican Party has a long history of memorable leaders and figures. Even in the face of adversity, these men and women have bravely served their country.
Sadly, one of these icons has recently passed away. And Americans are remembering him.
Ken Starr, the prolific prosecutor in the Whitewater probe during former President Bill Clinton’s term, has died. He was 76…
Starr cemented his political legacy through the investigation of the Whitewater probe, a so-called scandal that hung over the Clintons during the ’80s. His investigation led to the impeachment of former President Clinton in 1998.
Colleagues and other figures are remembering him.
“Judge Starr was a consummate legal scholar and gentleman. It was a privilege to have been associated with him and to have known him. We have lost a giant,” said retired judge Ralph Strother.
Ken Starr was a well-known prosecutor who made a name for himself during Bill Clinton’s presidency.
Starr was chosen as the lead investigator into allegations against then-President Bill Clinton.
The liberal media at the time skewered Starr, who dared defy a Democrat president praised by the left.
But Starr was known for being a keen-minded prosecutor who was not influenced by public opinion.
His discoveries, including bombshell revelations that Clinton lied under oath, lead to the former president’s impeachment.
Those who knew Starr remembered him after news of his death circulated. Judge Ralph Strother called Starr a “scholar and a gentleman” and “giant.”
Even Donald Trump acknowledged his death calling him a “true American Patriot” who “loved our Country.”
The current President, Joe Biden, has remained silent on the man who investigated his predecessor and led to his impeachment.
Starr’s work as a legal expert and scholar will continue to inspire Americans, who seek to put truth and justice over political corruption.
