Linda Tripp, the woman who helped blow the whistle on former President Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, is now reportedly near death. As The New York Post reports:
Linda Tripp, whose secret conversations with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton in 1998, is seriously ill and near death, according to a Facebook posting by her daughter.
“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,” Allison Tripp Foley posted on Facebook late Tuesday, adding that she was at her 70-year-old mother’s bedside. Her profile was later made private.
Tripp’s son-in-law, Thomas Foley, told The Post that he was unable to share any information about her condition.
“I think right now it’s a family situation,” he said Wednesday.
It is not yet known whether Tripp’s condition is due to a potential Coronavirus infection.
