The day will be marked on Capitol Hill by the National Whistleblowers Center, a nonprofit legal advocacy organization founded in 1998 which works on behalf of those willing to reveal what they know.
"Linda Tripp, a former U.S. civil servant who blew the whistle on a sitting president, speaks this year at the National Whistleblower Day celebration. This is the first public address Tripp will be making since 2000," the group noted in a statement, by way of introduction for their event.
"I know what it's like to be in the crosshairs of the most powerful person in the world, to be attacked viciously not because I said something that was not true, but because I said something people did not want to hear, about a popular president," Ms. Tripp told her audience on Monday.
"I will say that I could not have lived with myself if I had failed to act," she later added.
