Bill Clinton’s history of scandal is something the former president cannot escape.
It put Clinton in an uncomfortable position.
Now Bill Clinton had a strange response to one shocking death.
Ken Starr’s family announced Starr’s death at the age of 76.
“We are deeply saddened with the loss of our dear and loving Father and Grandfather, whom we admired for his prodigious work ethic, but who always put his family first,” a statement from Starr’s son Randall read. “The love, energy, endearing sense of humor, and fun-loving interest Dad exhibited to each of us was truly special, and we cherish the many wonderful memories we were able to experience with him. He is now with his Lord and Savior.”
Starr’s name will forever be linked with that of Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.
That’s because Starr was the Whitewater Independent Counsel who uncovered the affair between Clinton and Lewinsky which Clinton committed perjury to cover up.
Clinton’s perjury and abuse of power led to the House of Representatives impeaching Clinton in December 1998.
In an interview with CNN Clinton gracelessly reacted to Starr’s death by taking a shot at the former independent counsel.
“I read the obituary, and I realized that his family loved him, and I think that’s something to be grateful for. And when your life is over, that’s all there is to say. But I was taught not to talk about people that, you know…I have nothing to say, except that I’m glad he died with the love of his family,” Clinton stated.
Clinton’s reaction stood in contrast to Lewinsky who put aside her personal grievances against Starr to express her sympathy to Starr’s family.
as i’m sure many can understand, my thoughts about ken starr bring up complicated feelings… but of more importance, is that i imagine it’s a painful loss for those who love him.

Contrary to the fake narrative the liberal media created surrounding the Starr investigation Bill Clinton was not impeached over sex.
Clinton committed perjury by lying under oath in testimony as part of Paula Jones’ sexual harassment lawsuit by falsely stating he never had an affair with Lewinsky.
This act of perjury caused Clinton to lose his law license.
Clinton broke the law and paid the price by Congress holding him accountable through the impeachment process.
That the Senate did not convict Clinton and the fact that Clinton maintained an approval rating in the mid-60s thanks to an economic boom Clinton played no part in creating does not change this fact.
It’s not surprising that Clinton harbors ill will towards Starr and blames Starr for the problems Clinton created.
But what is surprising is Clinton’s inability to handle Starr’s passing with class.
