Coming Up on 'Scandalous': Linda Tripp Speaks Out About Lewinsky & Clinton
Watch Sundays at 8pm ET on Fox News.
On the next episode of "Scandalous" - a riveting, up-close look at the Clinton scandals of the 1990s - Linda Tripp speaks out in a rare sit-down interview.
In the third episode of the seven-part documentary-style series, three very different legal problems for President Bill Clinton are on a collision course: Paula Jones gets secret help from a group of high-powered conservative lawyers known as “the elves,” newly-appointed Independent Counsel Ken Starr gets his first convictions related to the Whitewater matter, and Monica Lewinsky reveals the details of her sexual encounters with the president to her co-worker, Tripp, who secretly records their conversations.
In a preview of Sunday's episode, Tripp spoke about her time working with Lewinsky at the Pentagon's Public Affairs Office.
"We were stymied as to how a young girl, just out of college, was given a position that had always gone to a seasoned professional," Tripp said. "Monica had no background, no experience, so it was a puzzle to virtually everyone in the office."
Tripp said she wasn't a friend or mother figure to Lewinsky, but she had never met a "needier person."
Using archival footage and records, never-before seen photos, as well as more than 45 new interviews with those involved, "Scandalous" chronicles the political drama that enveloped Washington and captivated the world during the 1990s.
