The woman who helped reveal former President Bill Clinton’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky is speaking out against Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner for president in 2016.

{mosads}In a lengthy interview with the Daily Mail, former White House employee Linda Tripp says that when she first entered the White House in early 1993, she heard the mantra, “Eight years for Bill. Eight years for Hill.”

“And when I asked a senior person, ‘What does that mean?’ He said, ‘Well eight years for his administration and eight years for hers.’ So this is a runaway train. Nobody is going to stop it,” she added.

“I think the most compelling thing about Hillary is that she will stop at nothing to achieve her end and that she views the public as plebeians easily seduced into believing her point of view,” Tripp told the Daily Mail.

Tripp, who turned over secretly recorded conversations with Lewinsky to the independent counsel investigating Bill Clinton, told the news outlet that despite “all his faults,” the former president “is not as unscrupulous as his wife.”

“He is complicit but he is not as deceitful as Hillary Clinton is. Don’t get me wrong, they are both missing the integrity chip but while she is inherently dishonorable, his seems to be learned behavior,” she said.

Tripp, 65, is married and lives in rural Virginia with her family. Meanwhile, after more than a decade, Lewinsky has stepped out publicly over the past year amid Hillary Clinton’s nascent 2016 White House campaign.
