Robert Ray Mentioned in The New Republic on Whitewater Deal

“How Many Years Will Robert Mueller Need?”

President Donald Trump and his inner circle are marking the one-year anniversary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment to with a barely veiled threat: shut down the Russia investigation as soon as possible.

…The following year, a three-judge panel in D.C. appointed Kenneth Starr as independent counsel to investigate a range of alleged scandals in the Clinton White House, including a closely scrutinized real-estate deal in Arkansas known as Whitewater. Starr’s probe eventually morphed into an investigation into whether Clinton lied about his marital affair with White House staffer Monica Lewinsky, culminating in the president’s impeachment in 1998. It wasn’t until 2002 that Starr’s successor, Robert Ray, released his final conclusions on the Whitewater deal and its ancillary scandals.
