Former U.S. Solicitor General Kenneth Starr died on Tuesday at the age of 76.
Starr died at a hospital in Houston, Texas, according to the New York Post.
He earned nationwide fame for his investigation of then-President Bill Clinton during which he discovered the Democrat’s affair with intern Monica Lewinsky, a revelation that ultimately sparked an impeachment trial.
Starr was initially appointed to investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton’s investment in the embattled Whitewater real estate group.
