Linda Tripp, a key figure in President Bill Clinton's 1998 impeachment, died at the age of 70 on Wednesday, her son Ryan Tripp confirmed to the Washington Post.

When news of Tripp being "near-death" broke, Monica Lewinsky, 46, acknowledged Tripp in her own social media message on Wednesday.

"My mommy is leaving this earth. I don't know myself if I can survive this heartache", Foley said in the message, as reported to the New York Post. "Please pray for a painless process for the strongest woman I will ever know in my entire lifetime".

After achieving a measure of fame after her role in the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, Tripp kept a low profile.

Prior to Tripp's passing, Lewinsky expressed her sympathy for Tripp and her family in a Wednesday afternoon tweet.

Tripp was a Pentagon employee when she secretly taped conversations she had with Lewinsky, who confided in her about the affair with Clinton when she had been a White House intern.

The next day, Thomas Foley, Tripp's son-in-law said she died, adding that it was not related to the COVID-19 pandemic caused by the CCP virus.

She later settled in Middleburg, Virginia, about 47 miles west of Washington, where she and her husband operated a store selling Christmas decorations.
