Former American First Lady Hillary Clinton has voiced her support for troubled lifestyle queen Martha Stewart in her current legal battle.

The New York senator likened the predicament of Stewart - who is being prosecuted for fraud and lying to federal agents - to her own battles with prosecutor KENNETH STARR, who pressed for similar charges to be brought against her and husband Bill Clinton whilst he was American President in the late nineties.

Hillary says, "I've been through a lot of things that I considered unfair, and I'm pulling for her. I'm sorry about the circumstance for her.

"I think there's more at work than meets the eye."
