Linda Tripp

Linda Tripp is a former White House secretary who came to epitomize the self-righteous tattle-tale, threw herself into the middle of the Clinton investigation by secretly taping revealing conversations with one-time friend Monica Lewinsky. With school-girl breathiness, Lewinsky confided the details of her affair with President Clinton, providing Tripp with 20 hours of recorded evidence. The legality of and motives behind Tripp’s actions became new material for investigation.

Where are they now?

Linda Tripp has reinvented herself—literally. Her $30,000 makeover (financed by an anonymous “philanthropist”) included a face- and eye-lift, a nose and chin job, and neck liposuction, all performed by Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Geoffrey Keyes.
She also sought the services of celebrity stylist Yuki Sharoni, who sheared her long, tacky locks and transformed them into a conservative layered bob.

In May, Maryland state prosecutors dropped illegal wiretap charges against Tripp. She was indicted for recording a December 22, 1997, phone call with Lewinsky and for illegally revealing its contents to the magazine Newsweek in January 1998. Maryland law forbids recording phone conversations without the permission of both parties. Under the state law, an individual can only be prosecuted for wiretapping if they are aware of the law.

She has returned to her post in Arlington, Virginia, as a public-affair specialist at the Defense Manpower Center.

She reportedly battled breast cancer and is to wed her “childhood sweetheart” in spring 2004.

Reader Mimi Adams updates us that in late 2003 she was settled a lawsuit against the US Defense Department and the US Goverment in which she claimed various privacy violations. She will receive $595K USD courtesy of the American taxpayer.

    Let’s face it, things happen. Who knows what the Clinton’s marriage was really like? What Bill did was not right, but he’s not the only president who’s had a mistress. Kennedy, Eisenhower, Roosevelt, the list goes on. Tripp was supposed to be a friend, she’s trash in my world. Friends are loyal and do no harm to their friends, especially for personal fame and gain. Life is what it is, and it’s not always pretty.

    Time to “de-sensationalize” sexual relations. Rape, is kidnapping, assault, terrorism, slavery, hate crime, all serious crimes, and would be much easier to prosecute if we did not focus on the ***. Marital Infidelity, is fraud, deception, breach of contract, and probably psychological torture. Call a misdeed what it is, and do not focus on the sexual aspect. We hang tenaciously on to the sexual aspects because we are taught to do so. This is behavior is not exclusive to the United States, but pretty close to exclusive. Much of the world ignores what offends us so much, and concentrates on the physical harm, and economic loss not the ***. Many women will scream about this post because our current attitude gives them power. Same for many churches. The point is, I do not care if the president has a varied *** life. I would care if he traded national security, or taxpayer assets for sexual favors, or if he openly embarrassed the office, but as long as he his is doing his job, the personal life should stay personal. Out of respect for the office, the president should have immunity from answering the kind of questions that were asked about Bill Clinton’s affair with Ms. Lewinsky. The sensationalist treatment of the sexual aspects, interferes with party politics, and the business of running the country. The next time a judge, a prosecutor, or senate committee asks the president, “Did you have *** with (whoever)” the acceptable answer should be, “Your honor, I am not obligated to answer those types of questions.”

    Lewnisy was I. Love with Bill. You all need to see the a&e special on this. Bill exploited a 24 yr old woman. Hilly hid his affairs over the yrs and intimated his victims cause she likes women and protects her scumbag husband. Bill has been corrupt since governor of Arkansas. He is responsible for barry seals death as many more. The Clinton’s are nothing more then white tradh.

    I could not care less about his *** life. I do care about money from Red China, pay for play out of the State Dept, fixing DNC. Giving weapons & parts there of to the enemy, control of the news media…. the selling of America.

    Monica is the real hero. She exposed the scumbag for what he is. Monica only did what one hundred million others do everyday.

    Is she a trans?

  7. t did matter says:

    if your the president and you have that kind of secret your in trouble. Others will find out about and exploit it. Ever wonder why missile technology was sent to china? Not sure if that was related or not but it illustrates my point Bill and Hill both needed it quiet for his and her political needs and aspirations. Blackmail runs hand in hand with secrets

  8. cla said says:

    We act like we don’t know what goes on in those political circles. If you don’t know then you need to educate yourselves. Certain behaviors are an accepted part of the position. And you know that when you enter in. If you can’t take the heat, then stay out or get out. Don’t try to take revenge.

    I don’t see the big deal of the sexual scandal. Is there a sin free person on earth? Seems to me that people have no life to criticize and point fingers. If someone is kind to enlighten me please, I will greatly appreciate i

    with friends like Miss piggy tripp………….as the saying goes…….who needs enemies. and with all of her plastic surgery…………….she’s still the same ugly person. Hey send her plastic surgery benefactor my way.

  11. TheOtherTruth says:

    Excuse me. The pig that sat in the White House as our Commander in Chief DID lie. He lied to his wife every time he got head in the Oval Office. That’s what an affair is, right? A lie? Nice try though for a lame attemp to spin that. The only one to blame here is Slick Willie

  12. Truth says:

    I don’t excuse Bill Clinton, but at least he didn’t lie about being married, he didn’t lie about being President, and he didn’t lie to her about the affair needing to be a secret. Therefore she had no reason to believe the relationship was anymore than it was. LINDA TRIP however, tricked her into believing she was her friend, baited her into telling her all her personal business, and for no other reason but personal gain, SCREWED HER IN PUBLIC. Exposed her and humiliated her in front of the entire world!

  13. Never Forget says:

    I am appalled that this fugly right wing tool sued the govt and got 595K out of the taxpayers. After SHE illegally wiretapped Lewinsky’s conversations. She should be in jail…not spending and enjoying the taxpayers money. Also interesting that her $30000 face lift (didn’t really help Linda…still ugly) was paid for by one of her GOP right wing pigs who wanted to destroy Bill Clinton at all costs.

    If the justice system worked the way it should. Karl Rove would be in prison .The FBI stooges who intimidated Lewinsky illegally would be in the next cell. The Judge who awarded Tripp a settlement instead of a sentence would be in the same cell block and the ones who profited the most by Starr’s persecution Bushes Jr. and Senior would be under the jailhouse. The Bush dynasty belongs in North Korea not America.

    LINDA TRIPP DID WHAT SHE DID, MAKE BILL CLINTON LOOK BAD BECAUSE HIS WIFE, NOW SEC STATE HILLARY CLINTON TRIED TO DUMP THE BLAME FOR OVER $3MILLION IN IMPROPER USE OF EXECUTIVE TRAVEL FOR PERSONAL AND PARTY FUND RAISING, NOT ON MRS CLINTON, WHERE IT BELONGED, BUT ON A POOR GS-13 OR GS-14, LINDA TRIPP. CONSEQUENTLY, NOT ONLY WAS THIS DISHONEST AND BULLYING TO THE EXTREME ON HILLARY’S PART, RESULTED IN MS. TRIPP’S RESPONSE, WHICH WAS TO USE WHAT SHE COULD, PRESIDENT CLINTON’S USE OF LEWINSKY FOR ORAL ***.
    I DON’T BLAME HER IN THE LEAST. WHAT DOES BOTHER ME, IS HER REASONING FOR DOING WHAT SHE DID, HAS LARGELY, NO, ALMOST TOTALLY BEEN REMOVED FROM ANY REPORTS ABOUT THE INCIDENT.
    FURTHER, SECRET SERVICE AGENTS TWICE TOLD REPORTERS, OFF RECORD, AFTER CLINTON WAS OUT OF OFFICE, THAT THEY HAD WALKED IN ON HILLARY AND THE HEAD OF WHITE HOUSE TRAVEL, MAKING OUT. IN MY OPINION, SHE IS A HERO. SHE STUCK IT TO A COUPLE WHO ARE NOT WHAT THEY APPEAR TO BE.
