The Whistleblower chronicles how Washington’s politicians have established a special justice system with special rights reserved for themselves. It gives the reader a front row seat into the Clinton White House through Linda Tripp's first hand account through impeachment and life after the fact.
The story reveals a disturbing truth: the strategies and tactics that protected the Clinton White House from prosecution have reemerged and are being used today. These corrupting games played at the highest levels jeopardize the freedom of speech, make a mockery out of the rule of law, and chip away at the foundation of the justice system.
Investigative journalist Marinka Peschmann fires a badly needed warning shot that puts the corrupt on notice and provides encouragement to those who expect and deserve better of their public servants.
Her work reads like a morality play—an allegory for our era offering a far greater message for America and a path to redemption for political systems through its often-surprising exposé of well-known (Linda Tripp), and less-known characters of the Clinton era.
The Whistleblower begins before the indictments of the Clinton White House were abandoned as yesterday’s news and the legal resolve for convictions had been exhausted. In doing so, the door remained open for corruption and abuses to continue to occur in future administrations.
As such, The Whistleblower could be re-written by essentially swapping former President Donald Trump’s name with the Clintons with their respective investigations and impeachment(s).
When abuses of power, perjury, rabid partisanship, witness intimidation, fleeting justice, sexual harassment, assault, dubious pardons, and other misconduct are only unacceptable when it is not your political-party-politician, but defensible when it is the politician and party you like, justice, decency, and the rule of law become warped.
It metastasizes and spreads into society and institutions like a cancer jeopardizing democracy.
