What Do Whitewater, Ken Starr, Monica Lewinsky & Detroit Have In Common?

We seem to have an interesting set of events occur within the last few weeks.

The #MeToo movement looks like it is being revived, but for reasons other than what one may think.

"I have heard tales of Detroit legends..."
Publicly accusing someone, without the opportunity to confront one's accuser or enter one's story into the public record, not just impugns legacies and careers, but it also sounds like what they do in CPS and FISC, but that is another one of my ad nauseum rants.

Anyway, Monica Lewinsky, an individual who was mob-ridiculed in the public, without aforementioned opportunities, recently raised a relevant question: "What about consent?"

Then, before my eyes, a pattern began to emerge.

Whitewater.

Yes, the Monica Lewinsky investigation was led by a Special Counsel, Ken Starr, who was appointed after the Robert Fiske Whitewater investigation, which seemed to have mysteriously gone nowhere.

The sealed Bill Clinton documents may just reopen the Whitewater investigation, and more.

Whitewater mirrors so much to the Detroit Land Bank Authority, but hey, what do I know?

I wonder if there is going to be a Special Counsel appointed to investigate a "Detroit #MeToo" moment, which will, of course, lead to, oh, how shall I call it.... how about #perkinscoiesucks or...



Stay tuned and butter up your popcorn.

Judge orders release of sealed Bill Clinton documents from Ken Starr probe

A federal judge has ordered the unsealing of documents from then-Independent Counsel Ken Starr’s two-decade old probe that led to former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia granted the order Monday in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from CNN.

According to the judge’s order, CNN journalist Katelyn Polantz requested on Feb. 9, 2018 that eight sealed matters arising from Starr’s 1998 investigation of Clinton “be unsealed and made public.”
Starr’s investigation began with the suicide of Clinton adviser Vince Foster and the Clintons’ Whitewater real estate deal in Arkansas. But it later expanded to include accusations of sexual misconduct and perjury, including Clinton’s relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives in December 1998. Clinton was acquitted of the charges by the Senate, with no Democrats voting to remove him from office.

The request from CNN includes testimony from former Clinton aides and advisers Bruce Lindsey, Sidney Blumenthal, Nancy Hernreich, Lanny Breuer and Terry Lenzner, as well as testimony from the Secret Service. It also requests other White House documents, in addition to a presidential subpoena.

The FOIA request from CNN indicated the documents could be relevant to procedures for obtaining testimony in special counsel Robert Mueller’s current Russia probe.

It’s not clear when the documents will be released, but Howell ordered them available to the public “promptly.”
