A nearly 20-year-old report on possible violations of grand jury secrecy during the independent counsel investigations of the Clinton White House was unsealed Thursday and cleared the office headed by Kenneth Starr of leaking secret information.

The report made no mention of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, whose service on Starr’s staff during the 1990s triggered a court request by a nonprofit ethics watchdog, American Oversight, to unseal the report before Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings begin Sept. 4. Kavanaugh had been on Starr’s staff investigating the suicide of Clinton White House attorney Vincent Foster, the Monica Lewinsky affair and other matters in the wide-ranging investigation.
