Ken Starr dies; led investigation into President Clinton

Ken Starr, a former federal appeals judge and prominent attorney whose criminal investigation into Bill Clinton led to the president’s impeachment, died Tuesday at the age of 76, his family said.

In a five-year investigation, Starr investigated fraudulent real estate deals involving a longtime Clinton aide, delved into the removal of documents from the office of Assistant White House Counsel Vincent Foster after his suicide, and gathered evidence of Clinton’s sexual encounters with Monica Lewinsky, a former White House intern.

In 2020, he was recruited to represent President Trump in his impeachment trial.

For many years, Starr’s reputation as a lawyer seemed to put him on the path to the Supreme Court. At 37, he became the youngest person to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. From 1989 to 1993, Starr served as Attorney General in the administration of President George HW Bush and tried 25 cases before the Supreme Court.
