Linda Tripp

American Civil servant, key witness in the Clinton–Lewinsky scandal

Linda Tripp    ▸ Facts   ▸ Comments   ▸ News   ▸ Videos   

Linda Rose Tripp was an American civil servant who played a prominent role in the Clinton–Lewinsky scandal of 1998. Tripp's action in secretly recording Monica Lewinsky's confidential phone calls about her relationship with the president caused a sensation with their links to the earlier Clinton v. Jones lawsuit and with the disclosing of notably intimate details. Tripp claimed that her motives were purely patriotic, and she was able to avoid a wiretap charge in exchange for handing in the tapes. She then claimed that her firing from the Pentagon at the end of the Clinton administration was vindictive, while the administration claimed it to be a standard routine. Since then, Tripp worked with her husband in a retail business in Middleburg, Virginia.
