Former President Bill Clinton broke his silence on the news of former prosecutor Ken Starr’s death Sunday.

Starr died nearly a week ago of a long-time illness at the age of 76. He was most well-known as the independent counsel investigating the Whitewater real estate controversy and the Lewinsky affair, which led to Clinton’s impeachment.

“[Starr] never filed a charge on Whitewater, but put your presidency—your second term—upside down,” CNN’s Fareed Zakaria asked Clinton in a televised interview. “Do you have any thoughts? Any reflection?”

“Well, I read the obituary, and I realized that his family loved him, and I think that’s something to be grateful for, and when your life is over, that’s all there is to say,” Clinton said. “But I was taught not to talk about the people that — I have nothing to say.”

Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, the other person involved in the Whitewater investigation over the affair she had with the then president shared a similar sentiment on the day Starr died.

“As I’m sure many can understand, my thoughts about Ken Starr bring up complicated feelings,” Lewinsky wrote on Twitter, “but of more importance, is that i imagine it’s a painful loss for those who love him.”
