Ken Starr Gives Harsh Criticism of Democrats’ Impeachment Hearing: "No hope for impeachment"

Ken Starr is a man who knows a thing or two about impeachment. If you recall, he's the man who through his criminal investigation, brought forth the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton.

Last week following the impeachment hearings, Starr heavily criticized the Democrats' for initiating this inquiry and shared what he really thought of what he believes things look like going forward.

Starr said, “The members were very strong. I think the members overall acquitted themselves extremely well on both sides of the aisle. The quality of the questioning was extremely high for the most part. One key thing, the Republicans not only are rock solid, so that means if this trend continues, there is no hope for impeachment, that’ll do it for the conviction in the Senate.”

Did you catch that? Starr says that the Democrats have NO HOPE for impeachment! I 100% agree.

Starr continued, “And to me, here was something that was very telling: No crime was proven today. There were a lot of terms used, extortion and bribery, but no crime. This is very unlike Nixon and unlike Clinton."

According to The Daily Wire,

Earlier in the day, Starr said that “we are living in this culture of impeachment — that everyone cries impeachment. And we inherited this process from the mother country. But the mother country hasn’t employed impeachment for executive branch officers — it’s a parliamentary system, of course — in two centuries.”

“So we need to find a better way to hold the executive accountable. If the Democrats believe that the president stepped over the line, discuss a motion of censure, resolution of censure, and say this is really bad,” Starr added. “But there’s no suggestion, to go back to Andy [McCarthy]’s point very briefly, that the president somehow was profiting from this, right? Bribery in the traditional sense means — and I know the statute is very broadly worded — but this does not seem like bribery. To the person on the street, this is going to seem like a stretch.”
