Linda Tripp has died at the age of 70

One of the key figures in the Clinton impeachment trial has died. Linda Tripp, a former official at the Pentagon, passed away from pancreatic cancer today. She was 70 years-old.

Tripp, who was the whistle-blower in the Clinton-Lewinsky sex scandal, secretly recorded phone calls Lewinsky had with her that detailed her relationship with the then President Clinton.

Her family posted the news of the passing on their Facebook page and before the news that Tripp had died, Lewinsky offered condolences on her Twitter account.

“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,” she wrote.

After the impeachment hearing, Tripp was fired and worked with her husband at their small business.

Tripp’s family said her death is not related to Coronavirus.
