This is the Final Report of the investigation of Independent Counsel, Robert W. Ray, into Monica Lewinsky and others in relation to the Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan Association.
The report was filed on May 18, 2001 and released on March 6, 2002, two years after President Clinton left office.
Robert Ray, 39, succeeded Kenneth Starr as Independent Counsel on October 19, 1999. He inherited Starr’s investigation and had to write the final report.
Ray previously worked for Independent Counsel Donald Smaltz on the prosecution of Clinton’s former Agriculture Secretary, Mike Espy. Ray’s appointment was criticised by Clinton’s spokesman, Joe Lockhart, as a “dubious proposition”.
