CLINTON WORE LEWINSKY TIE DURING SPEECH!

**Exclusive**
**Must Credit**

Insiders who have full knowledge of the gifts exchanged between Monica
Lewinsky and President Clinton tell the DRUDGE REPORT that Clinton wore a
tie given to him by Monica Lewinsky -- during last night's national TV address!

The silver-blue tie, with little black checkers, was the first tie Monica
Lewinsky gave President Clinton early in their relationship. And
investigators may ask Lewinsky about that tie when she makes an appearance
before the grand jury later this week, it has been learned.

"It's Bill Clinton playing with fire," warns one case insider. "This is his
finger to the world."

Bill Clinton may have not even remembered that Monica Lewinsky gave him the
tie, but one source, directly involved in the case, strongly doubts it.

"I know it's unbelievable, but he was wearing her tie!"

The White House offered no immediate comment.

The NEW YORK TIMES fronts a story on another tie sighting in Wednesday
editions, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

"When President Clinton strode into the Rose Garden on August 6, his jazzy
gold and navy necktie stood out sharply against his white shirt and sent a
jolt through certain lawyers around town... According to what Ms. Lewinsky
told a close friend, Ms. Lewinsky told the president that because they would
not be able to see each other every day, 'when I see you wearing this tie
I'll know that I am close to your heart.'

DRUDGE FOOTNOTE: It was Halloween of 1997. The romance was over between
Lewinsky and Clinton. Even the phone sex had cooled. It was a dangerous
time, with lawyers for Paula Jones looking into Clinton's activities.
Monica Lewinsky gave the president a little jack-o'-lantern lapel pin,
according to case intelligence. Videos and pictures track how the president
wore it all day, during all of his public appearances.

TRIPP WANTS TO RETURN TO WORKPLACE, PENTAGON SILENT

**Exclusive**
**Must Credit**

With her grand jury testimony now over, Linda Tripp would like to return to
her desk at the Pentagon, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. But her superiors
at the Pentagon have not allowed her to return.

Tripp views this as a clear sign that they do not want her back, according
to sources, and that her 18-year government career is ending.

She has requested to return to her former position as Director of the
J.C.O.C. program -- and her request has not been answered.

Tripp, who was not available for comment on this report, had asked for a
resolution of this problem by August 13. There has been no response.

Tripp has been working out of her house since she became a main witness to
the Office of the Independent Counsel last January. She has not worked at
her desk at the Pentagon since the Monica Lewinsky story became public.

Is there a whistle-blower lawsuit to follow?

Tripp is said to be considering her options this week.

CNN was Cable King during the President's remarks on Monday night with
5,405,000 households. MSNBC was seen in an estimated 942,000; an estimated
462,000 tuned on FOX NEWS CHANNEL, the network's personal best. A.C.
NIELSEN was having difficulty pinning down a precise number of people for
the broadcast networks, an estimate will be announced early Wednesday
morning, but it is clear that Clinton address pulled the biggest HUT levels
since the OJ verdict...

BBC: DUCHOVNY WANTS OUT

X-FILES star David Duchovny has now admitted that he hates the sci-fi hit -
and wishes he could leave the show.

"I'd love to be off the TV show, but because of my greed I have to give them
an extra two years," Duchovny says.

The actor, who plays FBI agent Mulder, is quoted on the BBC website where he
says that he thought the show was doomed from the start.

He said: "I assumed there was no way it would last. It wasn't that
interesting and I thought it was silly. Obviously I was wrong."

Asked whether he understood the plot, he said: "Enough to know they don't
make sense. There are lots of holes."
