Newt Gingrich and Ken Starr, two chief architects of the scattershot investigation and subsequent impeachment of Bill Clinton, have called out Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his inquiry into Republican President Donald Trump and his relationship with Russia.
NPR: “Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich tells NPR’s Rachel Martin that President Donald Trump is right to be troubled that Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Justice Department’s investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 election. The Justice Department’s culture, Gingrich says, is ‘very liberal’ and has an anti-Trump bias and the probe is a ‘fishing expedition.'”
LawNewz: “Ken Starr, the former independent counsel who investigated Bill Clinton and drew fire for his wide-ranging ‘witch hunt,’ appeared on television Friday morning to express his concern about Bob Mueller’s probe into possible Trump campaign ties with the Russian government.”
“The mandate that Bob Mueller received has some broad language, including ‘related-to’ type of language, which tends to open the door, but there are some checks and balances,” Starr continued to say, “We don’t want investigators and prosecutors out on a fishing expedition.”
