Starr Blasts 'Habit' of Hounding Presidents

President Donald Trump’s defense on Monday turned to Bill Clinton’s prosecutor Kenneth Starr to complain that impeachments are becoming too common.

“We are living in what I think can aptly be described as the age of impeachment,” said Starr, who investigated Clinton for years as independent counsel.

Starr said that after the Clinton impeachment both parties decided “enough was enough” and allowed the independent counsel statute allowed to expire.

But, he said, “the impeachment habit proved to be hard to kick.”

Starr contended that impeachment should charge criminal violations, and not just any crimes but high crimes, given the ability of the people to select a new president in the next election.

“Let the people decide,” he urged the Senate.
