Linda Tripp, the White House staffer who secretly recorded her conversations with White House intern Monica Lewinsky about Lewinsky’s affair with then-President Bill Clinton and turned them over to Kenneth Starr in exchange for immunity during Clinton’s impeachment trial, has died at 70.
The New York Post reports: “Tripp has been seriously ill and on her deathbed Tuesday night, according to a Facebook posting by her daughter. The Daily Mail reported on Wednesday afternoon that she had passed. … Tripp’s son-in-law, Thomas Foley, told The Post that he was unable to share any information about her condition. … Allison told TMZ that Tripp’s illness was not related to the coronavirus.”
Lewinsky tweeted words of support for Tripp’s family earlier on Wednesday.
