Special Master's Report on Leaks in Starr Investigation of Clinton Unsealed

Via the National Law Journal:  U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lambeth has ordered the Special Master's Report  on leaks concerning the Ken Starr investigation of the Clinton White House, unsealed.  The Honorable John W. Kern, III, was the Special Master in the case. Notes the NLJ, "Kern examined 24 news accounts in which Holloway Johnson found potential grand jury leaks. In his report, Kern said most of the unnamed sources in those news reports could be attributed to persons outside of Starr’s office." The report does not mention Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who worked for Kenneth Starr at the time, by name.
