    Was Independent Counsel, which is different from Special Prosecutor.  Congress let the Independent Counsel statute lapse and the position no longer exists.

    Starr's role as IC was not related to Impeachment.  Once the House Impeaches, they select "floor managers" who act like the Prosecution for the Trial that the Senate conducts.

      I recall Starr calling witnesses who testified before some House committee giving strong reasons why Clinton should be impeached.  (Some of whom gave some pretty phony testimony.)
