Lewinsky's attorney lashes out at Starr


WASHINGTON (Reuters, Jan. 23) -- Monica Lewinsky's attorney criticized independent counsel Kenneth Starr's investigation of his client on Friday, saying Starr "squeezed" Lewinsky to get information about her alleged sexual affair with President Clinton by threatening to involve her parents.

"I don't like the way the investigation has been conducted," William Ginsburg told ABC's "Good Morning America."

"Repeatedly during discussions with the office of the prosecutor we have been squeezed. They've even made threats to involve her parents who, as far as I know, know nothing about the situation," Ginsburg said.

Ginsburg's criticism of Starr comes a day after Starr defended controversial techniques used in the case, reported to have included hidden devices to record a conversation Lewinsky had with Linda Tripp, a former colleague in whom she had confided.

Starr told reporters Thursday: "We are going about our work, our activity, in a very prompt manner and a professional manner. We're moving as promptly as we can."

Ginsburg, however, complained about Starr's methods of questioning Lewinsky.

"Right off the bat we talk about stings and wires and traps," Ginsburg said. "I'm not happy with that at all, especially when you're dealing with a 24-year old girl. It's not nice."
