It had been a long time since anyone heard from Linda Tripp, the woman who befriended Monica Lewinsky and secretly recorded their conversations which were later used to out Lewinsky’s affair with President Clinton. Now she’s back and speaking out against Hillary Clinton. Tripp believes that Hillary should not win the 2016 presidential campaign and describes her as an entitled person who lied to the public. “I think the most compelling thing about Hillary is that she will stop at nothing to achieve her end and that she views the public as plebeians easily seduced into believing her point of view,” Tripp told Daily Mail.

Tripp believes that Hillary was the actual “ruler” during Clinton’s role as 42nd president of the United States:

“Hillary Clinton ruled the White House even as early as 1993 and every scandal that originated in the Clinton administration was the brainchild of Hilary. When I think of Hillary Clinton I think of a lingering taint of scandal and wrongdoing and, in my opinion, possible criminal activity.”

When describing Bill Clinton, Tripp says, “He is complicit but he is not as deceitful as Hillary Clinton is. Don’t get me wrong, they are both missing the integrity chip but while she is inherently dishonorable, his seems to be learned behavior.”

The former U.S. civil servant explained that power is the motivating force behind the couple.

“She has stood by him all these years because she needed him. In 1992 no female, least of all she, would have been elected to the highest office in the land. Their focus has always been power and the accumulation of that power. There were just so many things in the White House that made it abundantly clear to anyone in their radius that he was the elected official but she was the one with the actual power. When a couple is as focused as they are on a goal there are many, many things that one overlooks to achieve that. Nothing is allowed to stand in the way. That means no circumstance, no person.”

She also said that Hillary was the one who got rid of Lewinsky and cleaned up the “bimbo eruptions.”

“His political success was largely dependent upon Hillary. He owed her a great deal. As is widely acknowledged, Hillary took care of all the ‘bimbo eruptions’ of which there were thousands in order to present to the world an electable candidate. In this endeavor she was ruthless. She destroyed women so that their stories never saw the light of day.


Tripp is now 65 and lives with her family on a farm in Virginia. She and her husband also run a German-themed Christmas store called The Christmas Sleigh.
