DURST: Mediocre Prosecutor Kenneth Starr
Special Prosecutor Kenneth Starr, also known to many as Mediocre Prosecutor Kenneth Starr, is taking heavy heat for admitting to Brill's Content magazine that he and his chief deputy may have briefed a couple of reporters during his Presidential witch hunt, unh, I mean, investigation. Supposedly, he timed his leaks to put pressure on potential witnesses in his probe of Bill Clinton's many flaws and moral openings. Federal law prohibits prosecutors from disclosing "matters before the grand jury", but Starr maintains his actions were to protect his office from attacks that undermined public confidence in his work. He later was unable to provide any proof that there had been any confidence in his work to begin with. He also suggested some of the information was "what witnesses tell FBI agents before they testify before the grand jury". So it's not real testimony... yet. Senator Orin Hatch, Republican from Utah, and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee leapt to Starr's defense. But he's about as impartial as Hillary would be to a public flogging of Chelsea. Now the White House is calling for an independent investigation of the Special Investigator. And then Kenneth Starr could investigate the investigator who was investigating him, the investigator. Hey, this could be fun. Nah, then again, probably not. Will Durst is confused.
