 New Revelations:  Ron Brown's Lover Sheds New Light
 on Ken Starr and the White House


 Kenneth Starr - The Clintons' Accomplice

 Christopher Ruddy
 July 1, 1999

 The Independent Counsel law lapsed last night at midnight.
 And Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr said the law should not
 be re-authorized.

 Obviously, Starr believes that, because his own investigation
 was a waste of tens of millions of dollars, the Independent
 Counsel law should be trashed.

 The truth is that the Independent Counsel law is a good law.
 When corruption has been rooted out in places like France and
 Italy, it has usually been the result of an independent
 magistrate -- their version of our Independent Counsel.

 We also know that when Independent Counsels like Donald
 Schmalz and Daniel Pearson did their jobs, the Clintons were
 in a high state of panic and used every possible means to
 stop them.  We know that Bill Clinton has been fearful of
 another Independent Counsel being assigned to investigate
 Chinagate, allegations that he took Chinese campaign cash
 and gave away nuclear secrets.

 The law should stay.  It's Ken Starr who must go.  A weak,
 pathetic character, he has more responsibility than any other
 man in American history for the woe the Clintons have, and
 will wreak, on America.


 The Hubbell Deal

 Just how pitiful Starr's "prosecution" has been was
 demonstrated this week when Webster Hubbell admitted to
 committing a felony by misleading federal investigators,
 and a misdemeanor by failing to pay taxes.

 Any normal citizen would have been jailed and fined for such
 crimes.  Not Webster Hubbell.  Under Starr's plea agreement,
 Hubbell will be on parole and serve no jail time.  He won't
 even pay any fine or restitution.

 Worse, Webb Hubbell still doesn't have to cooperate with
 Starr in his investigation of the Clintons.  Hubbell
 continues to insist, "... I have no knowledge of any
 wrongdoing on behalf of the president or Mrs. Clinton."

 Starr's failure to seek Hubbell's cooperation -- a basic
 condition of granting a plea agreement -- violates the most
 fundamental procedures followed by federal prosecutors.
 But flouting procedure is nothing new for Starr.

 In December of 1994, when Hubbell admitted to having bilked
 his clients at the Rose Law Firm and evading taxes, Starr
 purposefully botched the plea agreement by not demanding
 Hubbell's cooperation.  Starr's actions so infuriated Starr's
 own trial attorney, Russell Hardin, that Hardin resigned.

 Hardin was incensed that Starr planned on signing a plea
 agreement without debriefing Hubbell as to what he knew and
 how he would cooperate -- a mandatory procedure for any plea
 bargain.

 This time around, Starr simply made no pretense he would seek
 Hubbell's cooperation.

 Just two weeks ago, the New York Times reported that Kenneth
 Starr had decided not to seek indictments against Bill and
 Hillary Clinton for crimes they had committed related to
 Whitewater or related scandals.  It's hard to get indictments
 if no one will talk.  It's nearly impossible to get people
 to talk, if the prosecutor doesn't pressure them.

 As any honest prosecutor on Starr's staff will admit, Starr
 had long ago decided not to indict the Clintons, or for
 that matter, any White House official.  Some believe Starr
 actually cut a deal with the Clintons soon after coming
 aboard.


 Pet Worm

 Ken Starr is Bill Clinton's pet worm.  Starr has played out a
 role in the greatest Mutt and Jeff, Good Cop/Bad Cop routine
 ever perpetrated on the American public.

 Even good folks, who realize how bad the Clintons are, have
 fallen victim to Starr's charade, taken in by the propaganda
 that Starr is the "tough, mean prosecutor" out to get the
 President, just like James Carville says.

 That's simply a mirage, cooked up by the White House spin
 machine.


 What Nolanda Hill Told Me

 Is it really possible that Bible-toting Ken Starr -- arch
 Republican, shirt-sleeve Christian, and Monica prosecutor
 -- is on the Clintons' side?

 Let me answer by relating this story:

 As the long-time lover and business partner of Clinton
 confidant Ron Brown, Nolanda Hill had intimate knowledge
 of the inner workings of the Clinton White House.

 As a result of Congressional complaints, Janet Reno was
 forced to appoint an Independent Counsel to investigate
 Brown, his business dealings with Nolanda Hill, Brown's
 son Michael, and several other people.

 The Independent Counsel in this case was Daniel Pearson from
 Miami.  Unlike Starr, Pearson and his deputy were no one's
 patsies.  Instead of using Starr's delaying tactics, Pearson
 had, within months, built a strong case against Brown,
 Brown's son, and Hill.  Nolanda Hill told me they were going
 to be indicted.

 Then Brown made a desperate bid to save himself.  Just weeks
 before his death on April 6, 1996 Brown met with Clinton at
 the White House and made it clear he was not going to take
 the fall for an administration rampant with corruption.
 Brown wanted Clinton to handle Pearson the same way the
 White House had handled Starr.

 Handled Starr?

 Hill explained.  Starr was appointed Independent Counsel
 in August of 1994, after the three-judge panel decided not
 to appoint Robert Fiske.  The Clinton White House publicly
 expressed outrage that Starr, a "partisan" Republican, had
 been selected as Independent Counsel.

 That's the way the Clintons wanted the world to see it.

 In fact, Hill told me, "when Starr was appointed, they were
 opening champagne bottles in the White House, they were
 celebrating."  According to Hill, Starr has actually been
 on Janet Reno's short list for the post of Special Counsel
 at the time she picked Robert Fiske.

 "They would never had put him on the short list if they were
 worried about him," she said.

 In his meeting with Clinton, Brown knew that Starr was under
 the White House's thumb.  He pleaded with Clinton to do the
 same with Pearson by having Reno interfere in Pearson's
 probe, and by ordering Justice Department attorneys on
 Pearson's staff to back off.

 Brown also asked Clinton to have the FBI obstruct the Pearson
 probe by withholding critical information.  Brown, Hill said,
 was well aware that FBI agents were not working for Ken Starr
 in his Whitewater probe but for Reno and the White House,
 giving the Clinton Administration de facto control over
 the Starr investigations

 According to Hill, Clinton told Brown not to worry.
 "I'll take care of it," Clinton said.

 Just weeks later, Brown's plane mysteriously crashed into
 the side of a mountain in Yugoslavia and the Pearson probe
 was closed.


 Starr Betrayed the Country

 Starr's inquiry has continued.  This August will mark Starr's
 fifth anniversary as Independent Counsel.  During his five
 years on the job, the public has received more than enough
 information to evaluate his performance.

 There are dozens of examples of how Starr has betrayed the
 American people and his oath as an independent counsel.
 To cite a few:

 -- During the time Starr was investigating the Clintons,
    Starr was working for a company wholly owned by China's
    Peoples Liberation Army and notorious arms dealer
    Wang Jun.

 -- Starr hired Mark Tuohey as his Washington deputy.  Tuohey
    is a liberal Democrat close to the Clinton White House who
    even threw a party at his home for Janet Reno.  (It came
    as no surprise that when Tuohey left Starr's office, he
    joined Vinson & Elkins, the law firm representing the
    Rose Law Firm before Starr's office.)

 -- Starr trashed a fundamental principle of American
    jurisprudence:  equality before the law.  Starr created
    a new and bizarre standard for deciding when to issue
    indictments.  Under Starr's new formulation, ordinary
    citizens and lower-level officials needed little evidence
    of wrongdoing to warrant an indictment.  But Starr raised
    the bar absurdly high for White House officials.  Thus
    Starr's office could indict a banker in Arkansas, but
    Hillary Clinton would not be indicted for the exact same
    offenses.  This is nothing less than a grant of titles
    and nobility for government officials, which is expressly
    prohibited by the Constitution and a major reason why we
    fought the Revolutionary War.

 -- Miquel Rodriguez, Starr's lead prosecutor in the case of
    Vincent Foster, resigned rather than be part of a
    cover-up.  Starr's out-and-out cover-up of Vince Foster's
    death began with his wholehearted acceptance of the report
    issued by Robert Fiske.  Key witnesses, such as several
    Arkansas troopers who said they knew of Foster's death
    hours before the White House did, were never put before
    a grand jury.

 -- Starr's prosecution of the Lewinsky case was a wild
    goose chase.  He had no original jurisdiction to
    investigate this matter, and only did so at Janet Reno's
    request.  Starr waited nearly eight months to sign a
    plea agreement with Monica.  In essence, she never really
    cooperated against the Clintons at all, claiming to this
    day that Clinton "never told me to lie; no one offered me
    a job ..."

 Still, some Starr fanatics argue that Starr did pursue the
 Lewinsky matter and seek Clinton's impeachment.  I ask:
 So what?

 When the Lewinsky scandal broke, I accurately illustrated,
 in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, what would happen.  Starr
 would delay his scathing report on Lewinsky, which would be
 so damaging to Clinton that it might even call for his
 impeachment.

 And Starr's report was delayed and issued at the end of the
 year, pushing the impeachment vote until after the elections
 and saving Clinton again.  Throughout the Lewinsky matter
 it became clear that Starr was creating a diversion for
 Clinton's real crimes; Clinton would never be removed from
 office over a sex scandal.

 Most egregious of all was Starr's mishandling of key
 Whitewater witnesses David Hale and Jim McDougal.  Hale
 spent some 18 months in prison and was punished with huge
 restitution demands -- even though he was the chief
 cooperating witness.

 McDougal, who also cooperated, was sent to federal prison and
 was apparently murdered when prison officials purposefully
 withheld life-sustaining medications.

 But convicted criminals like Webb Hubbell and former Arkansas
 Governor Jim Guy Tucker, who both stubbornly refused to
 cooperate, got off easy.  Tucker never served one day in
 prison.

 If the guilty and unrepentant get off easy, what type of
 prosecution is this.  It's not time to blame the Independent
 Counsel Law; blame the prosecutor who wouldn't do his job.
 Because of Kenneth W. Starr's complicity, the most corrupt
 administration in the history of the country continues with
 no end in sight.  God save us all.
