If Bill and Hillary thought that they were clear of the “bimbo eruptions” that plagued their time in the White House, they’d better think again. First came Kathleen Willey, then came Juanita Broaddrick on Twitter.
Now, Linda Tripp — the woman who helped break the Monica Lewinsky scandal back in the 1990s — is coming out with even more dirt on Bill and Hillary. In an interview with “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” this weekend, Tripp said it was common knowledge that Bill had slept with “thousands of women” and that Hillary had covered it up through character assassination of the women involved.
“She made it her personal mission to disseminate information and destroy the women with whom he dallied,” Tripp told host Klein.
Tripp, whose post in the Clinton White House was a carryover from the George H.W. Bush White House, became a national figure when she gave special prosecutor Kenneth Starr information concerning Clinton’s affair with Lewinsky.
Tripp said she’d turned over the information because of “years of alarm at what I had seen in the Clinton White House, particularly Hillary and the different scandals, whether it was Filegate, Travelgate, Whitewater, Vince Foster.”
While Newsweek had the story and sat on it, the Drudge Report, then relatively new, broke the first scandal to finally stick to both Bill and Hillary.
“All of the scandals that had come before and were so completely obliterated in the mind’s eye of the American people because of the way all of them were essentially discounted,” Tripp said. “So I watched a lying president and a lying first lady present falsehoods to the American people.
“So my dismay predated the January 1998 period when the Monica Lewinsky scandal surfaced. To me it was very important that the American people see what I was seeing. My years with the Clintons were so disturbing on so many levels.”
Tripp also claimed that, in addition to Lewinsky, Bill Clinton was having an affair with another staffer during his time in the White House. She added that she believes her decision to go public with the information kept Lewinsky safe, especially given the fact that Lewinsky herself was threatening to reveal their relationship and in light of things that have happened to other Clinton accusers.
“I say today and I will continue to say that I believe Monica Lewinsky is alive today because of choices I made and action I took,” Tripp said. “That may sound melodramatic to your listeners. I can only say that from my perspective, I believe that she and I at the time were in danger, because nothing stands in the way of these people achieving their political ends.”
