Monica Lewinsky Reacts to Ken Starr Joining Trump’s Legal Team: ‘Are You F*cking Kidding Me?’

Monica Lewinsky Reacts to Ken Starr Joining Trump’s Legal Team: ‘Are You F*cking Kidding Me?’

Monica Lewinsky was quick to react to the news that Ken Starr will be joining President Donald Trump’s legal team for the upcoming impeachment trial. Lewinsky was a major subject of Starr’s investigation into former President Bill Clinton when he was independent counsel.

“[T]his is definitely an “are you fucking kidding me?” kinda day,” Lewinsky said on Twitter, without direct reference to Starr. But the implication was clear.

Lewinsky has spoken in the past of how Starr and his team treated during the investigation, threatening her with jail time in order to get her to provide information on Clinton. Lewinsky’s relationship with Clinton was headline news and made her the subject of ridicule in many quarters.

Starr will join Alan Dershowitz and Robert Ray on Trump’s legal team for the Senate trial. They are a curious collection of partisan lawyers who may well add color to the proceedings.
