Daily Mail: Linda Tripp Reveals Why “Hillary Must Never Become President”
Originally posted at Daily Mail by Laura Collins.
It was the scandal that saw Bill Clinton impeached and which threatened to bring down his presidency. For many, it continues to define it to this day.
But according to the woman who outed Monica Lewinsky as the president’s mistress, the real story was never about Monica. It was about ‘subornation of perjury, obstruction of justice… a true abuse of power.’ And it was about Hillary.
Because, according to Linda Tripp, it was Hillary who manipulated and stage managed the story, converting herself from a lackluster First Lady with unimpressive approval ratings to admirable First Victim – the blindsided wife standing by her man.
She made him forgivable. She ‘orchestrated the cover up’ and she made damn sure that she moved on. Nothing, and no-one, was going to stand in her way.
Linda Tripp, whose recorded conversations with Lewinsky – submitted to independent counsel Kenneth Starr – exposed the truth of the affair that both Lewinsky and Clinton had sought to deny, has never spoken fully until now.
After more than a decade of silence Tripp, 65, has chosen to speak out. In an exclusive interview with Daily Mail Online the woman who had a ringside seat throughout Clinton’s administration has given a damning insight into – and assessment of- Hillary as the ‘key player’ in the scandals of the Clinton presidency.
She describes Hillary as the true ‘ruler’ of the White House through her husband’s administration; tells how she watched Hillary ‘blatantly lie’ to the American people; describes her as utterly ‘ruthless’ in her pursuit of power; and voices her belief that Hillary must never gain the presidency – the position that has always been her goal and to which she has always believed herself entitled.
According to Tripp: ‘In her mind she would be part of a coronation instead of an election.
‘This has been planned for so many years. I remember one of the quotes in my first week in the Oval Office which was the week after Clinton’s first inauguration.
‘Everybody had this little mantra, ‘Eight years for Bill. Eight years for Hill.’ And when I asked a senior person, ‘What does that mean?’ He said, ‘Well eight years for his administration and eight years for hers.
‘So this is a runaway train. Nobody is going to stop it.’
Tripp explained: ‘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’s office was directly adjacent to Hillary’s second floor West Wing office for the entire time she served at the Clinton White House, with the exception of the first three months during which she sat directly outside the Oval office. Her position offered her unparalleled access to, and a unique perspective on, both the couple and the administration.
