Linda Tripp, whose secret conversations with White House Intern, Monica Lewinsky, led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton in 1998, is near her death.
“My mommy is leaving this earth. I don’t know myself if I can survive this heartache. Please pray for a painless process for the strongest woman I will ever know in my entire lifetime."
Tripp’s son-in-law, Thomas Foley, tells The Post that is was unable to share any information about her condition. “I think right now it’s a family situation,” he said Wednesday.
Following the news of Tripp's conditions, Lewinsky tweeted out this message: "no matter the past, upon hearing that linda tripp is very seriously ill, i hope for her recovery. i can’t imagine how difficult this is for her family."
“It was always about right and wrong, never left and right,” Tripp once told the Washington Post in an interview while discussing her decision to reveal the relationship between Clinton and Lewinsky. “It was about exposing perjury and the obstruction of justice,” she continued. “It was never about politics.”
Tripp, 70, disappeared from public life after the scandal, moving to Middleburg, Virginia.
