The former US solicitor general Kenneth Starr said in his interview with the CBS Face the Nation that he doesn't regret his decision to victimize Monica Lewinsky during the Bill Clinton investigation. 

In an article published by the Vanity Fair Magazine, Monica recalls her investigation by the team of Starr. She first met Starr at a New York restaurant on the Christmas Eve of 2017

Monica described Starr's staff manhandled her to a hotel room near the Pentagon and threatened her to cooperate with them unless she wanted to face 27 years in prison. The team of Starr also posed a threat to her as they intimidated to prosecute her mom. 

Starr also used her dad's medical practices and even deposed her aunt as a lever to get what they need. 

Lewinsky further added, 

And all because Starr, standing in front of me, had decided that a frightened young woman could be useful in his larger case against the president of the United States.

She also recalls saying, Starr,

Though I wish I had made different choices back then, I wish that you and your office had made different choices, too.

Following Monica's statement, Starr answered with a big No! while he was asked on the CBS show Face the Nation if the victim deserved an apology. 

Starr wishes her all the best while still agreeing to the fact that her life had been disrupted. But, he added saying, 

The evidence is the evidence, and she was part, as we saw it, in an effort to obstruct justice and to commit perjury.

Starr also added that the then-president Clinton shouldn't have conducted himself as he did because he was in a very series matter when he was under the oath. 

2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the publicization of the sexual relationship between Lewinsky and Clinton.
