Impeachment: American Crime Story Episode 1 Spoilers
The first episode is titled ‘Exiles.’ It will possibly start by depicting events from 1994. The first episode might revolve around Linda Tripp, a White House staffer who might get transferred to the Pentagon’s public affairs office following her boss’ death. There she will meet Monica Lewinsky, with whom she will strike up a friendship. Like Linda, Lewinsky would have previously worked at the White House before moving to the public affairs office in Pentagon. In the following one-and-a-half years, they will become close friends.
On the other hand, a civil servant called Paula Jones, working for the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission (AIDC), will sue President Clinton for alleged sexual harassment. In her lawsuit, she will likely claim that Clinton propositioned her and made inappropriate sexual advances during his tenure as the Governor of Arkansas.
Lewinsky will be about 22 years old at the time of her first sexual encounter with Clinton, who will be 49. When she will tell Tripp about her alleged affair with the President, the latter might speak to literary agent Lucianne Goldberg about it. On Goldberg’s advice, Tripp might begin recording her phone conversations with Lewinsky to collect more evidence about her supposed affair with Clinton. The teaser will give you an idea of what is to come.
