There are no consequences for these and so many powerful people. I am slathered in disgust as this has become a way of life in America. The truth is not respected, rather the choice of our politics is the reason we live and die by the sword. No principles, no respect for the law and the truth. I fear for our very souls.

In light of the frenzied attacks on President Trump, this story is especially chilling. It seems we care less about truth than about our own prejudices and practicalities. If Trump, or any person in power is in the wrong, we need to have the courage to act. There is a reason we say, "Don't kill the messenger!" when we must deliver unwelcome news. Thank you to Mr. Starr and his family and the others working with him for having the courage to seek the truth despite the toll it has taken.

Payback for Ken Starr. You knew he was going to have his say and try to get his payday. Have'nt heard from him in years and now he scuttles out of his hiding place with a book about how it really was. Hmmm too bad the facts and truth don't add up. Sour grapes Ken.. you are just looking to cash in.
