‘The term special prosecutor strikes fear in the hearts of longtime Clinton-ites, who still recall when Kenneth Starr was appointed to look into the Whitewater controversy’

CBS: Trump’s Call for Special Prosecutor ‘Strikes Fear’ in Hearts of Clinton Allies (The Washington Free Beacon)

Donald Trump’s call for a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state and potentially illicit ties with the Clinton Foundation “strikes fear” in the hearts of her allies, CBS reporter Nancy Cordes said Wednesday.

Trump said Monday there should be an “expedited investigation by a special prosecutor” into the ties between the charitable foundation and Clinton’s State Department. A new Associated Report this week shows that 85 of 154 private individuals who met with Clinton while she was secretary of state were Clinton Foundation donors, many of them giving millions of dollars to the organization.

Reporting for CBS This Morning, Cordes noted Trump’s call for a “special prosecutor” brought to mind the Kenneth Starr investigation that uncovered Bill Clinton’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky in the 1990s.
