Starr rejected accusations that his pursuit of Clinton was politically motivated.
"I was assigned to do a job by the attorney general, and that was to find out whether crimes were committed in this (Paula Jones) sexual harassment lawsuit," Starr said at the time. "The whole idea of equal justice under law means that you've got to play by the rules. It has nothing to do with the underlying subject matter. You just tell the truth."

Of course, their hypocrisy has no reason.
