Starr stood before the Senate as part of President Donald Trump's defense team and likened impeachment to "hell." He suggested it's a sword that lawmakers should kept sheathed.

Starr is best known as the independent counsel whose investigation led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.

He spoke to the jurors in a modulated tone - flicking at the Pentagon Papers, Richard Nixon’s crimes, the Iran- Contra scandal and even the Clinton impeachment. Starr says that for the American public, the impeachment process is tantamount to “domestic war."
