Ken Starr: Sessions 'Acquitted Himself Beautifully'

Attorney General Jeff Sessions "acquitted himself beautifully" in his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, former special counsel Ken Starr told Fox News’s Martha MacCallum.

"I don’t think a lot was revealed today. I don’t think we’re much farther down the road," Starr said of the Russia investigation. "But I think that the American people saw that this attorney general is just a great human being with an enormous amount of passion and determination to try his very best to do the right thing."

Starr, whose investigation into the Clintons’ Whitewater real estate investments eventually led to former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, argued that former FBI Director James Comey "violated, perhaps law, but he certainly violated policy time and time again."

He seemed confident about special counsel Robert Mueller, however, describing him as “very able and honest.”

"He’s going to be thorough, he’s going to be professional," Starr said. "And you simply go where the evidence leads you ... so, let's allow him to do his work."
