I came across this article. It is about the woman who would be president and the way she likes to treat people. But there is another part of it that I found more interesting since the first part should be well-known to any who has paid the least bit attention to American politics and that is you do not, I repeat, you do not cross Viper-Lady .
I refer to the part about Ken Starr who issued a 38,000 word report on the suicide of Vince Foster but omitted to include the real reason for it which was the public humiliation he received from the Viper-Lady. Now why would a guy on the level leave out information that: “his own investigation had found that Hillary’s rage had led to her friend’s suicide.” Also, the article wonders why he stopped the FBI from interviewing Viper Lady about her commodities trading.
I had planned to write something about Ken Starr earlier. I first encountered him when I was asked to review his findings on his investigation that led to Bill Clinton’s impeachment. I did and found them full of holes. I flew to Washington, D.C. a day or two before the hearing in which he was scheduled to testify to brief the Congressman that retained my services. He was going to be on the panel that Starr was going to question Starr. I had prepared for him an outline of the cross-examination I hoped he would pursue.
He thanked me. He thought it was all good stuff. Then he mentioned he only had five minutes time to question Starr so he could never get into it. He decided to take another tact. I stayed for the hearing and listened to Starr testify. I sensed something quisling-like about the man. It was as if he was supposed to do an investigation but at the same time he wanted to remain on friendly terms with the party he was investigating — especially if they were powerful people like the Clintons. He was not going to burn any bridges he might want to cross.
My sense was in his dealings with the Clintons there was always a wink and nod understanding he would not hurt them. I figured he was not so much interested as getting to the bottom of something as he was to advance himself. I thought that was apparent to most people that the guy was not totally on the level. That was confirmed when he cleared the Viper Lady of any wrongful involvement in the Travel Gate Scandal (another one we forget about). At the time of a subsequent report on that matter “New York Times columnist Safire updated his description of Hillary Clinton to “habitual prevaricator”, saying “the evidence that she has been lying all along is damning” and comparing her dark side to that of Richard Nixon in whose White House he had once worked.”
Starr’s appointment in 2010 as president of Baylor I recall really surprised me. I expected Baylor University would have done a better job in finding a leader than a guy like Starr who in my book had a good brain but deficient character traits.
As you know he was just fired from his job as Baylor president. A few days later he stepped down as the University’s chancellor. Here is a take on his stepping down. All we know is for years under Starr’s leadership women were further abused when they made complaints they were sexually abused by players on the winning football team. The specifics are quite vague with all the parties involved acting like the three monkeys hearing seeing or saying nothing about the evil.
It really should not have been surprising that under a person like Starr that women would not be treated properly. After all we should never forget that he was , well let me use his words. He and two other university presidents were on a forum that discussed “The Calling of Faith-based Universities.” Starr during his presentation said that at Baylor: “there is a Christian calling to ensure that the students understand the concept of maintaining a “caring community” and living to serve the needs of others.”
As he was picking up his notes to leave he was asked how a person like him who is leading a Christian school like Baylor which is a Baptist University would have used his legal talents to represent a pedophile like Jeffrey Epstein who defiled and sexually abused young girls and fed them to his friends to abuse. He answered: “I was very happy to respond to the needs of a client of the firm.”
Starr graduated from law school at age 28, clerked for judges until he was 31, and was appointed by Ronald Reagan as a federal court of appeals judge at the tender age of 37. No doubt he is bright but like many bright men inside he is dull, empty of compassion. We should not be surprised that a man like Starr who would represent a serial abuser of young women man like Epstein would not respond to the complaints of young college students who were being raped.
PS: Later today I will post the statement of a rape victim so you better understand how Ken Starr and those in positions like him fail the test of common decency.
