Kenneth Starr, who has died aged 76, was the independent counsel whose investigations into the extramarital relationships of former US president Bill Clinton, the so-called “Zippergate” affair, outlined no fewer than 11 grounds for impeachment, including obstruction of justice, abuse of power and perjury.

Starr was initially appointed in 1994 to investigate the suicide of the deputy White House counsel Vince Foster and to look into the Whitewater real estate investments of the Clintons. He later expanded the inquiry into other areas, including the extramarital affair that Clinton had with Monica Lewinsky.
