Tripp, known as a “whistleblower” in the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal, married husband Dieter Rausch in 2004. She has two children: Allison, and a son, Ryan.

Linda Tripp Career
Before the Clinton scandal, Tripp was a civil servant working for the Pentagon. She had served at the White House during the George H.W. Bush administration but was reassigned the year after Clinton was elected. In 2001, Tripp left politics for good.
Tripp kept a relatively low-profile after leaving politics, but she opened up during a 2018 interview with the Washington Post, saying she now knows what “a real high-tech lynching feels like.”
Tripp said it was “virtually impossible to get your good name back.” But she didn’t have any regrets. “My duty, my oath, was to the office of presidency, not to the sitting incumbent, and I was true to that oath,” she said.
Linda Tripp Death
“My mommy is leaving this earth. I don’t know myself if I can survive this heartache,” Tripp’s daughter, Allison Tripp Foley, wrote on Facebook Tuesday. “Please pray for a painless process for the strongest woman I will ever know in my entire lifetime, Linda Rausch. Dear friends and family, please direct all questions to Thomas Foley at this time. Dieter and I are both by her bedside.”
Thomas Foley, Tripp’s son-in-law, didn’t immediately provide more information about her health. “I think right now it’s a family situation,” he told the New York Post Wednesday.
Tripp’s friend, Diane Spreadbury, told the Daily Mail she was a “wonderful person.”
“I’ve been told she died with a smile on her face,” Speadbury told the publication. “We had discussed death many times and spoke of it together when she faced breast cancer 18 years ago. It wasn’t something that she was afraid of.” Spreadbury added: “But I’m glad for her that it was very peaceful.”
