The late Ken Starr authored the Starr Report, which led to the impeachment of former president Bill Clinton, but it did not come easily.
Starr was intimidated and hounded by the media for going after Clinton, yet apparently, today Jack Smith gets a free pass.
Mark Levin had the chance to sit down with Starr in 2019 and discuss what he accomplished and what happened to him as a consequence.
“I wanted to ask you a question,” Levin said, “and I’ve thought about this a lot as I watch the coverage of Robert Mueller.”
“I remember when you were an independent council. We had the paparazzi media on your front step,” Levin continued, “You were criticized constantly by the media; he’s defended by the media. What do you make of that?”
“Night and day, apples and oranges,” Starr replied. “The press knew where I lived and they camped out.”
“They don’t do that for Mueller. Why is that?” Levin asked.
“There’s got to be a treaty of peace that with the networks and platforms and so forth, they said we’re going to leave him alone,” Starr suggested.
Levin believed it was because Mueller was investigating Trump, while Starr was investigating Clinton.
“The media as a whole, I think, is pretty sympathetic to those who are investigating a Republican,” Starr said.
Now Levin is saying the coverage Jack Smith is receiving perfectly reflects what Starr and himself believed back in 2019.
“There is no special counsel investigating all these criminal allegations against Biden, and they are so serious and substantive,” he says.
