About Author

Linda Rose Tripp (born November 24, 1949) is a former U.S. civil servant who figured in the Monica Lewinsky scandal of 1998–99.

Tripp's action in secretly recording Lewinsky's confidential phone calls about her relationship with the President caused a sensation with their links to the earlier Jones v. Clinton lawsuit and with the disclosing of notably intimate details. Tripp claimed that her motives were purely patriotic, and she was able to avoid a wiretap charge in exchange for handing in the tapes. She then claimed that her firing from the Pentagon at the end of the Clinton administration was vindictive, while the administration claimed it to be a standard routine. Still, she was able to claim generous compensation for unauthorized revelations about her security clearance.
