The woman who exposed former President Bill Clinton‘s affair with Monica Lewinsky said the president had “thousands” of similar affairs and if she hadn’t spoken out when she did, she and Lewinsky would both likely be dead.
Linda Tripp, a former friend of Lewinsky who worked at the White House during the same time as the infamous intern, said in a radio interview Sunday with Aaron Klein that she believed her and Lewinsky’s lives were in imminent danger.
“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,” she 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,” Tripp continues.
“Had it not become public when it did… We may well have met with an accident. It’s a situation where unless you lived it as I did you would have no real framework of reference for this sort of situation.”
Tripp said Clinton had affairs with “thousands” of women, including another White House staffer who she declined to name, and added that it was “common knowledge,” even to Mrs. Hillary Clinton, whose involvement in the scandal was solely to defame and discredit the women involved.
“She made it her personal mission to disseminate information and destroy the women with whom he dallied,” Tripp told Klein.
She said that while the former first lady showcases herself as “a champion of women’s rights worldwide in a global fashion, and yet all of the women she has destroyed over the years to ensure her political viability continues is sickening to me.”
Tripp told Klein that she couldn’t stand seeing the American people being duped by the president and Hillary and their lying ways.
“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,” she 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.”
