Goldberg Says She May Release Tapes Of Conversations With Tripp

WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, Jan. 31) -- New York literary agent Lucianne Goldberg may release tapes with "sordid details" that she says she made of her conversations with Linda Tripp about the president's alleged affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

The agent said she will release them if the "other side doesn't stop trashing Linda."

"The tapes will explain all the sordid details," she said.

Goldberg said she taped the conversations she had with Tripp when Tripp first contacted her with the allegations, and it is her standard practice to tape conversations she has with prospective clients who have "a volatile story to tell. And by now, you know I only deal in volatile stories."

Goldberg said the tapes were made last year on Sept. 18, 19 and 29. When asked what was said in the conversations, Goldberg answered, "That's for me to know and the other side to be very, very afraid of." But she added that the content is identical to what Tripp already has said was on the tapes of her conversations with Lewinsky.

Goldberg said she doesn't know exactly what will make her decide to release her tapes. But she said she feels Tripp has not had a chance to defend herself, and she charged that both Lewinsky's lawyer, William Ginsburg, and people connected with the White House have been using innuendo and false allegations to destroy Tripp's character.

Goldberg said no one has been able to hear Tripp's version of events in her own voice. "She is not lying," the agent said.

"The only thing anyone has seen or heard is the one tape Newsweek had, so no one can get a sense of what she's like ... she (Tripp) is strictly by the book," Goldberg said.
