“This is definitely an ‘are you f—ing kidding me?’ kinda day,” tweeted Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern whose relationship with former President Bill Clinton led to his impeachment in 1998.

Lewinsky didn’t explicitly make it clear that she was referring to the hiring of Starr and his successor as independent counsel, Robert Ray, by Trump’s team, but her name will forever be tied to Starr’s in history. His investigation brought to light Lewinsky’s involvement with Clinton, who was later impeached on charges of lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice in the matter. He was later acquitted by the Senate in February 1999.
