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


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
