'Whitewater' Counsel Ken Starr: 'I've Seen Nothing to Suggest Trump Obstructed Justice'
Clinton-era Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr discussed the ongoing Mueller investigation into President Donald Trump.
Starr took over the investigation into President Bill Clinton in regards to alleged connections to the Whitewater land deal, after a panel of judges dismissed Robert Fiske Jr. in 1994.
The investigation eventually led to a probe into Clinton’s relationship with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
Starr said on "Fox & Friends" that he's seen no evidence of collusion being brought forth against Trump by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
He said there is also "a lot of symbolism" in the fact Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein personally briefed Trump on Mueller's indictment of several Russians in regards to 2016 election meddling.
"I've seen nothing in... the firing of [former FBI Director] James Comey and all of the aftermath that suggest the president has obstructed justice," Starr said.
He added that he recognized that many Trump critics have drawn ties to President Richard Nixon's Watergate scandal.
"Impeachment is different from crimes," he said. "Congress can impeach a sitting officer, including the president, for whatever reason it wants to. It's got broad discretion to do it."
But, Starr added that some of the discussion is "off-base" and that there is likely no obstruction of justice case against Trump.
Starr said Mueller is operating differently than he did when he investigated Clinton, but said that the former FBI director should be allowed to conduct his investigation as he prefers.
"I think it's just a different methodology. I think... he's doing a very aggressive, thorough, fast job." Starr said.
