Dear Ms. Attorney Gen. Reno,
We believe Ken Starr has massively abused his position. He has:
---Repeatedly leaked grand jury testimony (a felony), violating his sworn legal oath; then enclosing all that graphic testimony in his “report” knowing it would be released by a partisan Judicial Committee
---Endangered every President’s life by forcing the Secret Service to testify- a stunning breech of security
---Tortured and impoverished innocent people for years with endless fishing trip subpoenas and endless grand juries in a desperate effort to find anything to hurt Mr. Clinton
---Ignored state and federal wiretapping crimes against Linda Trip, perhaps protecting her from them
---Wired a “friend” to get incriminating sexual evidence, like a sleazeball divorce lawyer.
---Conspired with Jone’s lawyers and anti-Clinton groups (even before he was appointed!)to ambush and entrap the President in his deposition
---Broken the sacrosanct attorney/client privilege by forcing Clinton’s lawyers to testify. Then threatening Hubbell’s lawyers with prosecution for doing their job
---Helped jail Susan McDougal for years and trumping up tax charges against Web Hubbel to force them to incriminate Clinton, even if it was a lie
---Bullied and threatened prosecutors in Arkansas to prevent any prosecution of David Hale (the only real witness against Clinton’s friends in Ark) for his many crimes; Ignored evidence that he might be lying to save himself + that he’d been paid off.
---Cruelly forced a mother to testify for days about her promiscuous daughter's sexual affairs
---Criminalized a simple consensual affair, something that should send chills down the spine of every American: “He who is without sin....”
---Actually suggested that Clinton's trying to prevent his lawyers or the Secret Service from testifying (or anything that challenges his authority) is an impeachable offense.,
---Blithely ground the American government to a virtual halt (while India + Pakistan where playing chicken with nukes, the President's secretary spent a week in grand juries),
---Prepared not a report to Congress, but a salacious character-assassinating argument with conclusions + recommendations (surprise: Clinton should be impeached)
---Acted with an arrogance, abusiveness, carelessness, obsessive zeal, and cruelty unseen since Joseph McCarthy
Even a few of these abuses would warrant dismissal, taken together we believe Kenneth Starr should go to jail. At any rate, it is long past time to FIRE HIM. He’s accomplished his mission: to half-destroy Mr. Clinton- not by any real crimes, but with trash. The very idea of a permanent special prosecutor- endlessly hounding the President even as he’s employed by him, is monstrous. You made a grievous mistake in authorizing Starr’s inquisition on the Lewinsky affair, Ms. Attorney General. It’s time to rectify it.
