(PatriotWise)- Linda Tripp, the American civil servant who played a prominent role in the Monica Lewinsky and President Bill Clinton scandal, has revealed interesting new details about the affair in a new memoir.
Isn’t it incredible how, after all these decades, the Clinton sex scandal is still the talk of the town?
After almost 25 years, Tripp has revealed in a new memoir how she first learned of the affair before she released details to the public and embarrassed the Democrat leader.
In the new memoir, Tripp explains how she first met Monica Lewinsky in April 1996 when she was transferred from the Public Affairs Office at the Pentagon to the White House. The former civil servant said that Lewinsky had implied to her that she was having a relationship with “someone with influence” and discovered a few months later that she was talking about President Clinton.
The memoir then details how Lewinsky attended the president’s 50th birthday party at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Lewinsky boasted that she had “made actual contact” with the mystery figure that night.
And President Trump is in trouble because he lowered taxes and built a wall? Come on…
“Right after the November election, she would lay all her cards on the table and open up to me about him,” Tripp says in the new memoir. “She was like a high school girl losing her virginity to the cute captain of the football team and then bragging about it to her friends.”
Imagine bragging about having an affair with…Bill Clinton.
“The saddest part was that this grope validated, in her mind, a sort of secret romance between them,” Tripp added, implying that Clinton’s interest in Lewinsky was solely sexual.
Like we didn’t know that already.
“She may not have been Marilyn Monroe singing to her guy, but she was Monica and he was the president, and this was good enough. For now,” she added.
So it turns out Bill Clinton was being inappropriate with his staff during his 50th birthday party in New York City…but orange man bad, right?
Sadly, Tripp died in April of 2020. Her new memoir was published in December of 2020, but was recently profiled by Fox. December was one hell of a busy month for politics, so it’s probably not surprising it got buried…
The New York Post also published a long excerpt, which you can catch here.
