“Linda Tripp: Hillary Knew About Monica
Saying that Hillary Clinton’s book “can’t be allowed to go unchallenged,” Sexgate whistle-blower Linda Tripp returned to the spotlight on Wednesday to challenge the former first lady’s claim that she didn’t know President Clinton was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky until a DNA test proved the allegation.
Tripp said that Mrs. Clinton undoubtedly knew about the illicit relationship much earlier because she had a top aide monitoring President Clinton’s private activities.
“With Evelyn Lieberman, as deputy chief of staff to the president, Hillary’s henchman – there was no way that Hillary was not completely apprised of Monica Lewinsky,” Tripp told nationally syndicated radio host Sean Hannity.
“So the notion that she never knew – and then only knew – and was shocked and thrown to her knees in abject anxiety and grief, is nothing more than what the rest of her book is, a revisionist way of jockeying herself into a position [to run] for president,” the former White House insider said.
Asked what she thought of Mrs. Clinton’s book, Tripp told Hannity, “I was appalled and shocked.”
The former Clinton aide said she was shocked, “not in that she lied throughout the book,” which didn’t surprise her, “but [I was] shocked that it is so well done that the average person reading this book will believe it.”
Saying that a Hillary Clinton presidency can’t be allowed to happen, Tripp urged, “I think people with personal, factual information, firsthand information, need to speak out.”
“I’ve watched Hillary closely in action,” explained Tripp, who is in the midst of recovering from breast cancer. “I sat next to her for a great period of time. I know her culpability and that her fingers were literally in each scandal.
“And she also knows I know,” she added.
Tripp said that she came to know Mrs. Clinton while working for over a year in the White House Counsel’s office, which was next to the office of the first lady.”
