why is Starr defending a serial pedophile? The worst in americas history it appears? And we know he is guilty..

The right wing seems to love Starr and Kavanaugh for going after Clinton... and loves quoting him, so time to make sure we show the real reason Starr is no longer to be respected and time to be thrown under the bus by the right. he is now mainly on Fox and a hero to the right.

Kenny Boy Starr hero of the right, so why does a successful rich (from the Clinton case, made and paid millions by the tobacco industry while he was
the special prosecutor and not doing one hour of work for that money from the tobacco companies) esteemed former college law school dean, defend a serial child pedophile? One that raped at least 100 children to estimated 1000.

Any lawyer representing for hire Epstein I cannot even give them the light of day. Why does the media even allow him on TV to be quoted without bringing up this disgusting background?

Again the right wing declared Hillary not worthy of being president because she was not wealthy too (being wealthy you can take any case you want) forced by a judge to defend a rapist when she had just got out of law school.... and she asked the judge to not make her take the case. Well again here is alan dershowitz and Kenneth Starr a dean of a university and wealthy, why is he representing a guy who is estimated to have 60 settlements for raping children.

IS STARR a friend of convicted pedophile Epstein and so was trump. what a coincidence, NOT. Trump had a case filed against him with witnesses that stated trump also raped a 13-year-old girl in Epstiens home several occasions. So I believe alan Dershowitz as well as Starr was involved in child rape is the only way he would be defending Epstien himself. Epstein must have told him to defend or he would sing sing.

Remember when Epstein pleads guilty to raping a child, he plead the 5th when asked if trump was involved with underage children. Why would a convicted pedophile take the 5th on a question like that.

Now we have another chance with the illegal activities by Trumps appointed former federal prosecutor on the case that let Epstein off. and Barr has had to recuse himself from the case because his firm also represented Epstein. gee was Barr personally involved in such a case. That question was not asked and we need an immediate answer. are all these child rapists being put in top government positions because Epstein has the goods on them?

here Starr was receiving a million a year and did not hve to do any work for his company while being paid by the government to investigate Clinton. Tobacco, when he was not a expert in such cases of law.

again what is going on that all these people in trumps administration from attorney general Barr to Labor secretary who is accused of breaking the law to help Epstein? This is no normal case it is the biggest child molester ever caught in USA history. And trump implicated and a child filed suit against trump before he was president.

Ken Starr Is Now the Biggest Fish in the Barrel of Mockery

This, in addition to being one of the least excusable humans of the last half of the 20th century.

Quote:
omehow, in the ungodly mess that is the Jeffrey Epstein scandal—and I use ungodly in the fullest sense of the word—I somehow have missed one of the greatest proofs yet that the Deity has a whopping good sense of humor. And it's right there in the latest filings, the one where the judge teed up the federal prosecutors for having broken the law in how they let this monster skate as smoothly as he did. And it's not the fact that one of the law-breaking federal prosecutors is Alexander Acosta, the current Secretary of Labor and now perhaps moving up to being the fourth-worst cabinet official down at Camp Runamuck.

No, it's not that. Seriously. From the Miami Herald:

Acosta, in 2011, would explain that he was unduly pressured by Epstein’s heavy-hitting lawyers—Lefkowitz, Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, Jack Goldberger, Roy Black, former U.S. Attorney Guy Lewis, Gerald Lefcourt, and Kenneth Starr, the former Whitewater special prosecutor who investigated Bill Clinton’s sexual liaisons with Monica Lewinsky.
Is the cosmos jerking my chain? One of Jeffrey Epstein's lawyers was Ken Fcking Starr? The sanctimonious sheet-sniffing yahoo who presented to the Congress a soft-core porn novel in the hopes it would be enough to defenestrate a sitting president, who then went on to a career turning a blind eye to sexual assaults at Baylor University, and who now apparently took up working for a serial sex-maniac predatory pedophile? Oh, my aching pancreas, this is almost too good. In addition to being one of the least excusable humans of the last half of the 20th century, Starr is now the biggest fish in the barrel of mockery, and nobody deserves to be that more than he does.

But how did I not know this? How did I cheat myself of at least six months of delicious schadenfreude?

No question about it. I clearly need to spend more time on the Intertoobz.

Note right winger hero Kenny Boy Starr was deeply involved in this ... again look at his words when he knew his client had raped hundreds of children... "He admired Epstein" WTF... yep Starr is certainly a man of right wing values and a hero to right wingers...

as I have said before why would a rich lawyer ever represent a serial child pedophile … my conclusion is he is one too.

FBI wanted to arrest Epstein at Virgin Islands beauty pageant months before plea deal cut


Quote:
An FBI supervisor was “extremely upset” about being denied the opportunity to arrest Epstein in 2007, a Justice Department report says.






Quote:
The FBI wanted to arrest Jeffrey Epstein while he was judging a beauty pageant in the Virgin Islands seven months before he signed a non-prosecution deal that shielded him from federal sex crime charges, a Justice Department report says.

The 347-page report obtained by NBC News expands on an executive summary released Thursday of a probe into a more than decade-old sex abuse investigation of Epstein. The Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility found that former Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, who oversaw the case when he was a top federal prosecutor in Florida in the mid-2000s, exercised “poor judgment” but did not engage in misconduct.

The full report quotes one prosecutor as telling a colleague that the FBI had “wanted to arrest [Epstein] in [the] Virgin Islands during a beauty pageant...where he is a judge.”

“The case agent recalled that she and her co-case agent were disappointed” about being denied the opportunity to make the arrest in May 2007, the report says, and an FBI supervisor overseeing the case was “extremely upset” about it.



Quote:


Epstein’s attorney Ken Starr wrote a final email to Acosta when the case was concluded.

“While I am obviously very unhappy at what I believe is the government’s treatment of my client [Epstein], a man whom I have come to deeply admire, I recognize that we have filed and argued our ‘appellate motions’ and lost,” Starr said.


He concluded saying, “I would like to have . . . some closure with you on this matter so that in the years to come, neither of us will harbor any ill will over the matter.”

WATCH: Ken Starr decries the ‘age of impeachment’ | Trump's first impeachment trial


Quote:
Ken Starr, an attorney for President Donald Trump who headed the Whitewater investigation into then-President Bill Clinton, said we are in the “age of impeachment” because of changes that have been made in the past several decades. “Instead of a once in a century phenomenon, presidential impeachment has become a weapon to be wielded against one’s political opponent,” Starr said. Trump’s defense team is presenting their arguments as part of the Senate impeachment trial. The trial has entered a pivotal week as his defense team resumes its case and senators face a critical vote on whether to hear witnesses or proceed directly to a vote that is widely expected to end in his acquittal. The articles of impeachment charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The House of Representatives impeached the president in December on those two counts.

‘I have always tried to act with integrity’: Ken Starr speaks out after book accuses him of helping Jeffrey Epstein

In this article:

Jeffrey Epstein
American financier

Ken Starr
American judge and educational administrator

42nd President of the United States

American lawyer

Ken Starr, the independent counsel who relentlessly pursued former president Bill Clinton for his affair with Monica Lewinsky, said he would not comment on previous counsel he and his law firm gave in regard to his work for sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

“It’s not appropriate to discuss any counsel I or my law firm provided to a client,” Mr Starr said in an emailed statement to The Independent. “I have always tried to act with integrity and to be guided by the great principles of the American legal system.”

A new book reports that Mr Starr, a former US Solicitor General whose investigations of Mr Clinton led to the latter’s impeachment, engaged in a “scorched earth” campaign on behalf of disgraced financier Epstein, according to The Guardian.

Miami Herald reporter Julie K Brown, who reported on Epstein’s victims, writes in her new book Perversion of Justice that Mr Starr was a “fixer” who “used his political connections in the White House to get the Justice Department to review Epstein’s case.”

The book says Mr Starr and Epstein’s then-criminal defence lawyer Jay Lefkowitz sent emails “campaigning to pressure the Justice Department to drop the case,” with Mr Starr at “center stage” because of his connections to George W Bush’s administration.

Ms Brown reports that Mr Starr wrote an eight-page letter to Mark Filip, who was newly confirmed as deputy attorney general at the time and a former partner at Mr Starr’s firm Kirkland & Ellis. Ms Brown reports that Mr Starr wrote a memo similar to the Starr Report that triggered Mr Clinton’s impeachment, that accused prosecutors of trying to broker a plea deal that could benefit friends.

The book also alleges that Epstein’s legal team accused Marie Villafaña, the lead prosecutor on the case, of distorting negotiations to benefit a friend of her boyfriend, which she denied. Ms Brown reports that an unnamed prosecutor said Mr Starr was central to the legal campaign and that “it was a scorched-earth defense like I had never seen before. Marie broke her back trying to do the right thing, but someone was always telling her to back off.”

The prosecutor added that someone in Washington was “calling the shots on the case” and that even though Ms Villafaña warned that Epstein was probably still abusing underaged girls, the prosecutor said “it was clear that she had to find a way to strike a deal because a decision had already been made not to prosecute Epstein.”

Ultimately, after a secret deal, Epstein was sentenced to only 13 months in jail after being convicted of procuring a child for prostitution and soliciting a prostitute, and was allowed to work out of an office 12 hours a day. Ms Brown’s reporting for the Miami Herald is credited with revealing the details of the “non-prosecution agreement.”

Epstein was found dead his New York cell in 2019 after he was arrested on sex trafficking charges.

The Independent has contacted Jay Lefkowitz and Marie Villafaña for comment.

Ken Starr helped Jeffrey Epstein with ‘scorched-earth’ campaign, book claims


Quote:
Ken Starr, the lawyer who hounded Bill Clinton over his affair with Monica Lewinsky, waged a “scorched-earth” legal campaign to persuade federal prosecutors to drop a sex-trafficking case against the billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein relating to the abuse of multiple underaged girls, according to a new book.

In Perversion of Justice the Miami Herald reporter Julie K Brown writes about Starr’s role in securing the secret 2008 sweetheart deal that granted Epstein effective immunity from federal prosecution. The author, who is credited with blowing open the cover-up, calls Starr a “fixer” who “used his political connections in the White House to get the Justice Department to review Epstein’s case”.

The book says that emails and letters sent by Starr and Epstein’s then criminal defense lawyer Jay Lefkowitz show that the duo were “campaigning to pressure the Justice Department to drop the case”. Starr had been brought into “center stage” of Epstein’s legal team because of his connections in Washington to the Bush administration.

Perversion of Justice will be published next week. The Guardian obtained a copy.

When Epstein’s lawyers appeared to be failing in their pressure campaign, with senior DoJ officials concluding that Epstein was ripe for federal prosecution, Starr pulled out the stops. Brown discloses that he wrote an eight-page letter to Mark Filip, who had just been confirmed as deputy US attorney general, the second most powerful prosecutor in the country.

Filip was a former colleague of Starr’s at the law firm Kirkland & Ellis. Brown writes that Starr deployed “dramatic language” in the letter reminiscent of the Starr report, his lurid and salacious case against Clinton that triggered the president’s 1998 impeachment.

In the letter Starr begins affably, invoking the “finest traditions” of fairness and integrity of the DoJ. He then goes on to deliver what Brown calls a “brutal punch”, accusing prosecutors involved in the Epstein case of misconduct in trying to engineer a plea deal with the billionaire that would benefit their friends.

Brown reports that Epstein’s legal team also went after Marie Villafaña, the lead federal prosecutor in the case, accusing her of similarly distorting negotiations to benefit a friend of her boyfriend – an allegation she denied.

Brown cites an unnamed prosecutor linked to the 2008 case who said of the legal campaign in which Starr was central that “it was a scorched-earth defense like I had never seen before. Marie broke her back trying to do the right thing, but someone was always telling her to back off.”

The prosecutor added that someone in Washington – the book does not specify who – was “calling the shots on the case”. Villafaña warned fellow prosecutors at the time that Epstein was probably still abusing underaged girls, but according to the unnamed prosecutor quoted by Brown “it was clear that she had to find a way to strike a deal because a decision had already been made not to prosecute Epstein.”

According to a former senior department of justice official familiar with the matter, Starr’s request in his eight-page letter was denied, and he was not even afforded a meeting with the DoJ. But the outcome of this process was a secret deal that only became public years later, largely through Brown’s own reporting.

Given the number of victims and the severity of the allegations, Epstein got off exceptionally lightly with a sentence that saw him serve just 13 months in jail. During his sentence, Epstein was allowed out to work in his private office for 12 hours a day, six days a week, in a breach of jail norms.

In 2018 Brown published a three-part exposé in the Miami Herald that lifted the lid on the “non-prosecution agreement” that had been reached covering up Epstein’s sex trafficking operation. The reporter managed to identify 80 potential victims, some as young as 13 and 14.

Following Brown’s exposé, a judge ruled that the secret agreement was illegal, opening up the possibility of a renewed federal prosecution. Epstein was arrested on sex trafficking charges in July 2019 – 11 years after Starr and the rest of his legal team had worked so hard to shield him – and died in jail the following month in what was ruled a suicide.

In the fallout, Alex Acosta, who as Miami’s top federal prosecutor in 2008 had signed off on the Epstein sweetheart deal, was forced to resign as Donald Trump’s labor secretary.

Though Starr’s role in securing the Epstein deal was public knowledge, Brown’s book reveals the lengths that the lawyer was prepared to go to in order to protect from federal justice an accused sexual predator and pedophile. The extent of his involvement is all the more striking given the equally passionate lengths that Starr went to in 1998 to pursue Clinton for perjury and obstruction of justice, given the much less serious sexual activity that sparked that investigation.

Starr’s handling of sexual assault scandals has dogged him during other phases in his career. In 2016 he was stripped of the presidency of Baylor University after the institution under his watch failed to take appropriate action over a sexual assault scandal involving 19 football players and at least 17 women.

Four years later Starr served as a member of Trump’s legal team in the former president’s first impeachment trial over dealings with Ukraine.
