Ken Starr, the famed special prosecutor behind investigations into the Clintons’ Whitewater and Lewinsky affairs, claims in his new book that Hillary Clinton was a “systematic enabler” of her husband’s numerous affairs.
The book, titled “Contempt, A memoir of the Clinton Investigation,” examines in part the former First Lady’s roll in attacking the many women who came forth to accuse Clinton of sexual misconduct.
Starr referred to Mrs. Clinton as a “systematic enabler” who was “viciously attacking the various women who came forward to say they were Bill’s paramours, including Monica Lewinsky.”
The prosecutor put these attacks in the context of today’s #MeToo movement.
“The verbal assaults on women by the Clinton’s and their surrogates, who hurled demeaning epithets such as ‘trailer park trash,'” he wrote, would be unthinkable in today’s environment.

It’s more than just the fact that Hillary stood by her man, it’s that she viciously attacked anyone who accused him of infidelity, misconduct, or even rape, then concocted a story about it all being a “vast right-wing conspiracy.”
She is exactly the type of person, along with her husband, who should be enduring the same kind of ridicule and scorn as others blessed with fame who have been accused of #MeToo behaviors.
Instead, she pretends to be an advocate for women, claiming they have a “right to be believed.”
Earlier this year, video resurfaced of Hillary in 1998 threatening all of the women who had made accusations against her husband.
“I think we’re going to find some other things,” she said about digging into these women’s pasts. “And I think that when all of this is put into context, and we really look at the people involved here, look at their motivations and look at their backgrounds, look at their past behavior, some folks are going to have a lot to answer for.”
‘Answer for’ sounds like a threat.
She didn’t just threaten these accusers, she put them down and shamed them.
One of Hillary’s top advisers, James Carville, denigrated Paula Jones as a money-hungry tramp. Jones had brought a sexual harassment lawsuit against him in 1994.
“If you drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find,” Carville said.

As for that ‘vast’ conspiracy, Starr dismissed those outright lies as well.
“That was all Hillary-generated nonsense,” he wrote, “intended to avert the nation’s gaze from her husband’s crimes.”
It worked, apparently, as Starr indicates the public was willing to forgive Clinton for what they saw as harmless adult infidelities. He committed the crimes, she covered them up. A recipe for success in the Clinton family, even if it means destroying women along the way.
