The supporting documents also reinforce the notion that Lewinsky's original lawyer, William Ginsburg, was indeed an idiot. When Starr's office asks Monica for a handwriting sample, Ginsburg refuses on behalf of his client, saying he will agree to provide one only if Starr gives a sample of his own handwriting to Ginsburg. Later, he shows alarming signs of creeping Clintonitis, as in this exchange with a lawyer from the independent counsel's office:

A: I will not tell a fib under perjury, sir -- penalty of perjury. But I will do what is necessary to protect my client at all times as a vigorous advocate.

Q: Including lie?

A: Sir, I never lie. I do what is necessary to protect my client. You have to define the word "lie" for me before I can answer that.
