"During the course of administration, and in order to disturb it, the artillery of the press has been leveled against us, charged with whatsoever its licentiousness could devise or dare. These abuses of an institution so important to freedom and science are deeply to be regretted, inasmuch as they tend to lessen its usefulness and to sap its safety." —Thomas Jefferson (1805)

Ken Starr - Clinton era Special Prosecutor on the FAKE NEWS of Trump Obstructing Justice

Ken Star says there is no obstruction of justice, and questions need for Special Counsel 

0-00

so joining me now Ken Starr who served

0-02

as independent counsel for five special

0-04

investigations including the whitewater

0-05

investigation involving then President

0-08

Clinton mr. Starr welcome good to have

0-10

you with us tonight great to be with you

0-13

thank you so you watch this testimony

0-15

today and I know that you've said that

0-17

there is no obstruction of justice that

0-19

you have seen in any of this and you've

0-21

questioned even the need for a special

0-23

counsel given the evidence what did you

0-25

think about Jeff Sessions testimony

0-27

today

0-27

I thought the attorney general was

0-30

terrific

0-31

first of all I've known the Attorney

0-33

General since 1981 and I know him to be

0-36

a man of honor a man of the law and I

0-41

thought that came through his passion

0-43

and commitment to the rule of law

0-45

I came shining through so I don't think

0-48

a lot was revealed today and I think

0-50

we're much farther down the road but I

0-52

think that the American people saw that

0-54

this Attorney General is just a great

0-57

human being with an enormous amount of

0-59

passion and determination to try his

1-02

very best to do the right thing I like

1-05

his sense of moral indignation so given

1-08

that what do you think in reflection

1-10

about James Comey and what he suggested

1-12

about Jeff Sessions well a lot of what

1-17

director Comey suggested if I may say so

1-20

was innuendo but we've now seen a very

1-23

honorable person defend himself and I

1-27

thought he recorded himself beautifully

1-30

I thought he was very very plausible

1-32

and I have stated previously that I have

1-35

serious problems with the way director

1-37

Comey conducted himself and those were

1-40

really explored again today by virtue of

1-42

the senators going through meticulously

1-45

the Rosenstein memorandum which

1-47

enumerated the various areas in which

1-50

the director really violated perhaps law

1-54

but he certainly violated policy time

1-56

and time again

1-57

all right so in terms of investigations

1-59

which you are very familiar with one of

2-01

the things that the Democrats took issue

2-03

with today primarily we're moments like

2-05

this let's play number 5 I did not have

2-09

any private meetings no other do I

2-12

recall any Congress

2-13

stations with any Russian officials at

2-15

the Mayflower Hotel I did not attend any

2-18

meetings at that event to the best of

2-20

your memory you had no conversation

2-22

within that ambassador kishlak at that

2-25

meeting I don't recall it senator Morra

2-27

it would been certainly I can assure you

2-29

nothing improper if I'd had a

2-31

conversation with him and it's

2-33

conceivable that occurred I just don't

2-35

remember well I guess I could say that

2-38

possibly at a meeting but I still do not

2-41

recall it there's a lot of counting of

2-43

the times he said I don't recall and

2-45

people saying you know how could that

2-47

possibly be your that well I'm very

2-51

sympathetic with with that my goodness

2-53

it's difficult for us to recall what

2-55

happened last week we're going back some

2-58

considerable time and also it was not

3-00

one of those interactions that you would

3-02

automatically say you should remember

3-04

that a reasonable person would remember

3-06

that because no Americans back all the

3-08

time and he was a very permanent figure

3-10

around Washington and showed up at a lot

3-12

of these things right exactly and it was

3-14

a social kind of gathering etc or at

3-17

least it was a social context as opposed

3-19

to we're going over to the Russian

3-21

embassy or the Ambassador is coming to

3-23

your Senate office for a meeting
