Clinton Investigator DEAD – Details Pouring In!
(AmericanProsperity.com) – Conservatives across the nation are offering a moment of silence for a political icon this week. Former US Solicitor General Ken Starr, who became a household name for his involvement in the Whitewater investigation, passed away on September 13 at Houston’s Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center. According to his family, the celebrated legal expert died after suffering complications from surgery.
Alice Star, the late attorney’s wife, told The New York Times that he had been sick for some time. However, she did not disclose the nature of the illness. Starr also leaves behind three children and nine grandkids.
Starr leaves a legacy that includes contributions to 36 Supreme Court cases and five Independent Counsel investigations. The 76-year-old attorney began his career as a Supreme Court clerk but was later appointed to be former Attorney General William Smith’s Chief of Staff in 1981.
Two years later, Starr had officially stepped into a new role under former President Ronald Reagan: federal appeals judge for the DC Circuit court. He advanced again to become the US Solicitor General under former President George HW Bush in 1989.
Starr is best known for his role in the Whitewater investigation into former President Bill Clinton’s real estate holdings and, later, his secret affair with Monica Lewinsky. His Starr Report, which he created and presented to Congress in 1998, helped secure Clinton’s initial impeachment even though the Senate later voted to acquit.

Starr eventually became Baylor University’s president in 2010. By 2014, he had also become a chancellor by accepting the role of The Louise L. Morrison Chair of Constitutional Law at Baylor Law School.
The attorney also worked for The Lanier Law Firm starting in 2018. There, he tackled a wide range of special interest legal cases.
Notably, Starr served on President Donald Trump’s defense team in 2020 as the former leader fought charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Like Clinton, Trump was also initially impeached in the House but was later acquitted by the Senate.
