Tripp taped Lewinsky without her knowledge because she hated Clinton. Lizza taped you because that’s what reporters do, Doofus.

Monica Lewinsky served longer and did more for the public than Anthony Scaramucci.

Tripp secretly recorded calls of Lewinsky talking about Clinton. Lizza recorded you b/c it was on the record and that is LITERALLY his job https://t.co/Ltbe3hW6aE
