Is Monica simply a hapless White House intern caught in the middle of a media created scandal started by Linda Tripp. Monica Lewinsky is a 24 year old graduate of Lewis and Clark University in Oregon. Daughter of a Democratic contributor she was easily able to get an intern position in the White Horse. Some of Lewinsky’s friends have said that she only took the intern position to sleep with important people. If the recent news reports are true Monica Lewinsky got what she was looking for. Linda Tripp has over 17 tapes of her discussions with Monica Lewinsky describing her sexual relations with President Bill Clinton.
Linda Tripp was a high ranking administration assistant formerly of the White House, and now of the Pentagon. In an unusual twist Tripp also happens to be the last person to see Vince Foster alive! Kathleen Willey, another person alleged to have had sexual relations with Bill Clinton, is the one that gave Kenneth Starr Linda Tripp name as a possible witness in the Paula Jones sexual harassment civil suit. None of this would have been much of a problem had Monica Lewinsky had not told Tripp that Bill Clinton and Vernon Jordan instructed her to lie about the affair with Clinton. Supposedly Linda Tripp has Monica alleging this on tape. These tapes if finally released to the public should prove to be quite titillating, Monica Lewinsky claims that Clinton was very fond of oral sex and that she it to him on a number of occasions. It has been alleged by various news organizations that a secret service agent actually caught Lewinsky and Clinton in the act.
In announcing his intention to seek the 1992 Democratic presidential nomination, Clinton called for a jobs plan to lift the country out of its economic recession, tax cuts for the middle class, and a form of national health insurance. During the campaign, Clinton was pursued by questions about his character. He was attacked by some for evading military service and appearing to cover it up. ...
It has also been alleged that Monica Lewinsky has a blue semen stained dress which, if true, would be direct DNA evidence of the affair. But it still would not prove obstruction of justice. If that was ever proven it could be an impeachable offence, a sexual scandal probably would not lead to the impeachment of Bill Clinton. If not then it will simply be a source of Bill Clinton jokes.
In a new twist on all of this Attorney Terry Giles client Andy Bleiler claims to have evidence relevent to the case. He also claims that Monica Lewinsky and he were lovers when he taught her at the Lewis and Clark University in Oregon. It is possible that Monica Lewinsky gave him documents and presents that Clinton had given her. The scandal continues. Profile of Linda Tripp the White House staff person that broke the story.

Moody: Because I have chosen the path of truth, I have been vilified by spokesmen for the administration I proudly serve as a political appointee. The very same administration which is now trying to portray me as a disgruntled White House staffer, with a penchant for involving myself in scandals, has promoted me twice, given me a political appointment overseeing a critical public relations program at the Pentagon, consistently given me the highest possible annual evaluations and awarded me numerous certificates and merit pay increases. Although there is no political litmus test for telling the truth, I am a registered independent. Further, as a career civil servant in both the Bush and Clinton White Houses, my responsibility was to serve and support the institution of the presidency rather than its particular incumbent or party. Until January 1998, I had never voluntarily or intentionally inserted myself into any alleged scandal which has tarnished this administration. Because I worked on a daily basis with President Clinton and the counsel to the president, I, along with many others, was subpoenaed by the independent counsel and by Congress to testify in numerous investigations, including Whitewater, the tragic suicide of Vince Foster, and Travel gate.
With the United States economy in a state of recession from the empty promises brought forth by President George Bush, the country needed a change for the better. President Bush's policies were not pulling through, and the American people were expecting results. Re-election was nearing for Bush and he really needed to get his act together if he wanted another term in office. Out of no where a ...
I did not volunteer to become a witness in the Paula Jones lawsuit. Kathleen Willey named me to the press as a corroborating witness. I was subpoenaed to testify about Ms. Willey and about any other women who may have had an intimate relationship with the president. I went to the independent counsel to report potential crimes, which included the possibility of obstruction of justice and perjury.
I was being solicited to participate in a plan to conceal and cover up the true nature of the relationship between Monica Lewinsky and President Clinton. Monica described every detail of the relationship during hundreds of hours of conversations over the past 15 months. In addition, I was present when she received a late night phone call from the president. I have also seen numerous gifts they exchanged and heard several tapes of him. I was also present when Monica made and received numerous phone calls which were of a volatile and contentious nature directly relating to her relationship with the president.
I felt especially at risk if I told the truth in my deposition in the Jones case because the president, through his counsel, Robert Bennett, was quoted in the national media last August saying ”she is not to be believed.’ ‘ I chose to contact Mr. Starr’s staff because I had confidence in his fairness, thoroughness and integrity based on my experience during previous investigations. I considered writing a book following the denunciation former FBI agent Gary Aldrich received for writing his book. A trusted friend put me in touch with Ms.
Lucy Goldberg, a literary agent in New York, who wanted me to work with a collaborator on a book. My idea was to do a factual account of life and work in the White House during the Bush and Clinton administrations which would allow the public to draw its own conclusions. I withdrew from this project shortly thereafter because of disagreements over style and format, and because of potential risk to my job. I want to emphasize that whatever political agenda Ms. Goldberg may have is not mine. I went to her as a friend in the fall of 1997 for advice and counsel; she did not seek me out.
Clinton was impeached as President of the United States on December 19, 1998 by the House of Representatives. The charges were perjury and obstruction of justice. The Senate acquitted Clinton on both counts in a trail concluding on February 12, 1999. The charges arose from an investigation by independent counsel Kenneth Starr. Originally dealing with the failed land deal years earlier known as ...
I continue to value her friendship. I struggled long and hard before contacting the prosecutor. The allegations involved immensely powerful and important people. I was facing substantial risk of losing everything I have aspired to during by 18-year civil service career. The vicious personal attacks against me by an administration spokesman, and the general climate of threats, intimidation, McCarthyistic tactics and guilt by association can only serve to deter those who in the future may dare to bring information to law enforcement officials. No one should be forced to deny the truth under oath, not even a political appointee whose livelihood is dependent upon the good favor of those in power.
As a parent of children close to Monica’s age, I felt and continue to feel horror at the abuse of power and emotional anguish she has endured over a two-year period. I am disturbed by the smear campaign that maligns Monica. She is a bright, caring, generous soul one who has made poor choices. She was not a stalker, she was invited; she did not embellish, the truth is sensational enough. Monica’s moral compass is her own. She, as anyone else, should not be forced to defend her private life as a carefully orchestrated campaign is launched to discredit her.
I firmly believe the truth will be her friend as the facts come to light. End of Document – Goto Top.
