The Whistleblower in Pundit Press
Pundit Press is proud to present its 56th interview in out on-going series. Today, the Author of The Whistleblower: How the Clinton White House Stayed in Power to Reemerge in the Obama White House and on the World Stage was kind enough to answer our questions:
1. When and why did you decide to write The Whistleblower: How the Clinton White House Stayed in Power to Reemerge in the Obama White House and on the World Stage?
It’s a long story but here is the short version. Over eleven years ago I had spent seven months undercover (off and on) writing Linda’s Tripp’s story, and the events that led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment only to discover that both sides of the aisle were wrong—the truth lay in the middle. President Bill Clinton was in the White House at the time and Hillary Clinton was running for U.S. Senator in New York. After Linda Tripp’s criminal lawyer Joseph Murtha erroneously accused me of sabotaging her book in the Washington Post in 2000 I first tried to set the record straight on the Clinton era by pitching articles because I believe Americans deserve to know what happens in their White House.
Contrary to public opinion at that time, Linda was not a gossipy, evil whistleblower bent on destroying the Clintons—rather she had protected them by towing-the-line and being a ‘team player’ in the earlier investigations. This is critical in understanding how corrupt politicians stay in power and also explains why Linda tape recorded Monica Lewinsky for insurance to protect herself from them. Linda was not vilified and smeared over BJ’s in the Oval office. That’s ridiculous, and I thought Americans deserved to know the truth about Hillary’s role in the White House and during the Clinton-gate investigations. Then the Bush-Gore recount sucked the oxygen out of the news cycle. Hillary won her Senate bid and nobody would touch this story.
Then I wrote The Whistleblower book proposal and for years the ‘establishment’ and the ‘experts’ told me to move on because the Clintons were old news. But as we now know they were wrong. The Clintons are back in power in the Obama White House and on the world stage.
