President Donald Trump is considering former special prosecutor Ken Starr to become ambassador-at-large in the State Department’s Office of International Religious Freedom, the Religion News Service reported.
The head of the Office of International Religious Freedom monitors religious persecution and discrimination worldwide and develops programs to promote religious freedom, according to the State Department’s website.
If you’ll recall, Starr relentlessly pursued charges against former President Bill Clinton in a White House sex scandal that exposed Clinton’s extramarital relationship with Monica Lewinsky, which led to the former president’s impeachment.
Starr, former president of Baylor University, is one of three candidates being considered for the position. The others are Johnnie Moor Jr., a former faith adviser to Housing and Urban Development Secretary-nominee Ben Carson, and Hudson Institute human rights lawyer Nina Shea.
“It’s my understanding that it’s [Starr’s] job if he wants it,” a source person familiar with the process told Foreign Policy magazine, according to The Christian Post.
Prior to his position at Baylor, Starr worked as a judge, appellate lawyer and solicitor general. The conservative Christian served as solicitor general during former President George H.W. Bush’s administration.
In 1994, Starr was appointed to investigate the Whitewater scandal. He also investigated the death of former Clinton aide Vince Foster.
Starr, 70, resigned from Baylor University last year after the school released a report on the failed handling of sexual-assault complaints against football players.
Knowing that Starr could be headed to Washington to become part of Trump’s administration will no doubt cause many liberal heads to explode.
It’s going to be interesting to see how the mainstream media reacts to this news.
