Linda Tripp, whose tapes of her conversations with her former friend Monica Lewinsky helped set the stage for President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, is dead after a battle with pancreatic cancer, Daily Mail is reporting.
The official cause of death has not yet been released. However, Daily Mail is now reporting that Linda Tripp died on April 8, 2020 after finding out she had pancreatic cancer less than a week ago when she began suffering from stomach pains.
Tripp’s daughter told TMZ that Tripp did not have coronavirus (COVID-19). In 2009, Time Magazine reported that Tripp was a breast cancer survivor.
