How is Kenneth Starrs extraordinary term as independent counsel to be understood? Was he a partisan warrior out to get the Clintons, or a savior of the Republic? An unstoppable menace, an unethical lawyer, or a sex-obsessed Puritan striving to enforce a right-wing social morality? This book is the first serious, impartial effort to evaluate and critique Starrs tenure as independent counsel. How is Kenneth Starrs extraordinary term as independent counsel to be understood? Was he a partisan warrior out to get the Clintons, or a savior of the Republic? An unstoppable menace, an unethical lawyer, or a sex-obsessed Puritan striving to enforce a right-wing social morality? This book is the first serious, impartial effort to evaluate and critique Starrs tenure as independent counsel. Relying on lengthy, revealing interviews with Starr and many other players in Clinton-era Washington, Washington Post journalist Benjamin Wittes arrives at a new understanding of Starr and the part he played in one of American historys most enthralling public sagas. Wittes offers a subtle and deeply considered portrait of a decent man who fundamentally misconstrued his function under the independent counsel law. Starr took his task to be ferreting out and reporting the truth about official misconduct, a well-intentioned but nevertheless misguided distortion of the law, Wittes argues. At key moments throughout Starrs probefrom the decision to reinvestigate the death of Vincent Foster, Jr, to the repeated prosecutions of Susan McDougal and Webster Hubbell to the failure to secure Monica Lewinskys testimony quickly-the prosecutor avoided the most sensible prosecutorial course, fearing that it would compromise the larger search for truth. This approach not only delayed investigations enormously, but it gave Starr the appearance of partisan zealotry and an almost maniacal determination to prosecute the president. With insight and originality, Wittes provides in this account of Starrs term a fascinating reinterpretation of the man, his performance, and the controversial events that surrounded the impeachment of President Clinton. eBooks, Business, Finance & Law~~Jurisprudence and General Issues, Starr~~EBook~~9780300127485~~Benjamin Wittes, , Starr, Benjamin Wittes, 9780300127485, YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 10/01/2008, , , , YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
