Did Ken Starr Know About the Clinton Tapes?





Michael Smerconish says a source tells him Bill Clinton never told independent counsel Ken Starr about the secret tapes he recorded with the help of historian Taylor Branch.

"Sporadically in The Clinton Tapes, Branch addresses the conundrum posed by recording the sitting president and the need to avoid certain subjects because of investigations. Still, their conversation continued, and one suspects that the likes of Ken Starr would have salivated upon knowledge of their occurrence..."

"There is no way for an outside observer to know whether President Clinton was required to produce information that instead stayed in his sock drawer, but my legal instincts tell me that any number of attorneys who investigated the former president are requesting old files from storage to see how they worded their subpoenas."
