Ken Starr, who investigated President Bill Clinton leading to his impeachment, said President Donald Trump’s characterization of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation as a “witch hunt” is not correct and that it is Trump’s “moral obligation” to testify.
“I think there may be a moral obligation, frankly, because he is the president of the United States,” Starr, former solicitor general of the United States, told CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday.
Calling it “definitely a serious case,” Starr told host Margaret Brennan, “We know that from the indictments and guilty pleas that have already been obtained.”
Trump has called the investigation a “witch hunt” in public statements and on Twitter.
“When and where will all of the many conflicts of interest be listed by the 13 Angry Democrats (plus) working on the Witch Hunt Hoax. There has never been a group of people on a case so biased or conflicted. It is all a Democrat Excuse for LOSING the Election. Where is the server?” he tweeted June 7 in reference to the investigation.
Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections has thus far netted six guilty pleas (one of which has been sentenced), 23 defendants, and 79 criminal charges.
