I found this little tidbit, actually searching for Richard Scaife.
Nor is she the only one pointing fingers at the Klintons. Lucianne Goldberg, who in her own words, "encouraged her friend Linda Tripp... to tape conversations with intern Monica Lewinsky," has acted as Tripp's literary agent on a proposed book, and represented others for numerous anti-Klinton books, including one about the Vince Foster death written by, of all people, Nazi-crazed ex-LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman. Previously, in 1972, she was a dirty-tricks operative for Tricky Dick's CREEP organization - one of the most honest acronym's in history. Posing as a reporter, she traveled with the McGovern campaign. She told the late Anthony Lukas that the Nixon people "were looking for really dirty stuff...who was sleeping with whom, what the Secret Servicemen were doing with the stewardesses, who was smoking pot on the plane -- that sort of thing." Asked if she was part of the Nixon dirty tricks operation, Goldberg said, "Well, they called it dirty tricks at the time." For this, Goldberg was paid $1,000 a week by the Republican Party, or a total of more than $10,000 plus expenses.
Goldberg also worked for NANA (North American Newspaper Alliance), supplying an address for NANA identical to her residence in Manhattan. JFK Assassination researchers note that NANA supplied Priscilla Johnson McMillan with the job (or perhaps cover) to travel to Moscow in 1959 to interview defector Lee Harvey Oswald. NANA was created by a senior veteran of OSS, Ernest Cuneo. One of NANA's partners was Fortune Pope, brother of Generoso Pope, Jr. - true founder of the supermarket tabloid via The National Enquirer in 1952. (In 1951, according to his own listing in Who's Who in America, Generoso worked for the CIA in their psychological warfare division.) Lucianne Goldberg's husband, Irv (who is now a senior vice president at United Media, which syndicates comic strips such as "Dilbert," thus being a conspiracy too nefarious for The Konformist to touch), was a NANA editor from 1957 through to the 80's, and also served as an editor for Women's News Service, the "journalistic" organization Lucianne used for her CREEP operation cover.
All of which doesn't mean Klinton didn't have sex with Monica Lewinsky, or that he didn't urge her to lie under oath. (It certainly wouldn't be out of character.) It does mean that, considering their histories, the guilt or innocence of Slick Willie isn't the reason why Tripp or Goldberg are behind the promotion of Peckergate.
Still, though Tripp and Goldberg are the major instigators in Peckergate, they are mere pawns in the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy (VRWC for short.) Even Ken Starr, whose 30 million dollar conflict-of-interest-plagued "investigation" of Whitewater has expanded into looking into Klinton's relations with Monica (which doesn't seem to have a lot to do with S&L swindling and money laundering in Arkansas), is just a wind-up attack dog. The real power behind the VRWC is billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, a fourth-generation heir to the Mellon fortune.
