Kavanaugh co-wrote independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s report in the 1990s. He laid out the legal framework supporting Clinton’s impeachment for his affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

That was a good report. I'll never forget how it explained the whole cigar thing. Somebody had to do it.
