The second half of Linda Tripp's deposition with Judicial Watch, scheduled for last Friday, is now set to resume Jan. 5.
Judicial Watch has filed a $90 million class-action lawsuit against the Clinton White House, Hillary Clinton, the FBI, former White House counsel Bernard Nussbaum, Craig Livingstone, and Anthony Marceca for illegal use and storage of FBI files. Tripp, White House deputy counsel Vincent Foster's former assistant, is considered a key witness. Judicial Watch sued on behalf of former staffers from the Bush and Reagan administrations.

On Monday, Tripp testified that there were FBI files in Foster's office, his safe, Nussbaum's office, and piles of files on the tables and floor of former White House counsel William Kennedy. Tripp did identify some of the names on the files, such as a file for Billy Dale, right before the Travel office firings. Tripp also said she saw a file for Rep. William Clinger, who led the Travelgate investigation in the House, as well as ones for close confidantes of President George Bush.
Tripp said she overheard a conversation between Kennedy and Marsha Scott, where Scott said the files needed to be entered into a White House computer so they could be shared with the Democratic National Committee.
"Ms. Tripp's testimony speaks for itself," Judicial Watch Chairman Larry Klayman said earlier this week. "And it puts to rest the lie that Filegate was an innocent mistake."
