Tripp Subpoenaed for Grand Jury
WASHINGTON (AP) _ Linda Tripp, whose tape recordings of Monica Lewinsky triggered a criminal investigation of President Clinton, was subpoenaed to testify before the grand jury next week, one of Tripp’s lawyers said Thursday.
Word of her scheduled appearance comes as Whitewater prosecutor Kenneth Starr tries to negotiate an agreement for the cooperation of Ms. Lewinsky, the former White House intern who alleged a presidential affair and cover-up in conversations with Tripp.
Joe Murtha, one of Tripp’s lawyers, said the grand jury subpoenaed Tripp on Thursday.
Starr spokesman Charles Bakaly declined to comment.
