A former White House staffer during the Bill Clinton presidency says that the former president actually had affairs with “thousands of women.”

Linda Tripp rarely speaks to the media, but her made an appearance on Aaron Klein Investigative Radio recently.

She says that pretty much everyone working for Clinton knew about the affairs.

“Everyone knew within the West Wing, particularly those who spent years with him, of the thousands of women. But as to the hundreds or thousands, remember I worked closely with the closest aides to the president. And it was a loosey-goosy environment so there was not a lot of holding back,” she said. 

“So it was common knowledge, let’s put it this way, within the West Wing that he had this problem. It was further common knowledge that Hillary was aware of it.”

Tripp says she came forward for the same reason Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey, who both recently spoke out about their allegations against Bill Clinton. All three say they don’t want Hillary Clinton to win the presidential race and hope their comments will damage her.

“I watched a lying president and a lying first lady present falsehoods to the American people,” Tripp said, reported the Daily Mail. “So my dismay predated the January 1998 period when the Monica Lewinsky scandal surfaced. To me it was very important that the American people see what I was seeing. My years with the Clintons were so disturbing on so many levels.”

“She made it her personal mission to disseminate information and destroy the women with whom he dallied,” Tripp added about Hillary, claiming that Monica Lewinsky’s life was in danger before Tripp turned tapes of her conversations with Lewinsky over to independent counsel Kenneth Starr. 

“I say today and I will continue to say that I believe Monica Lewinsky is alive today because of choices I made and action I took,” Tripp said.

“That may sound melodramatic to your listeners. I can only say that from my perspective I believe that she and I at the time were in danger, because nothing stands in the way of these people achieving their political ends. Had it not become public when it did… We may well have met with an accident. It’s a situation where unless you lived it as I did you would have no real framework of reference for this sort of situation.”
