FBI Special Agent Elaine Xydis Lipka has worked with the renowned United States agency since 1991. Her experience is vast and spans a variety of work, from surveillance and training to vital investigations of national importance. Once such investigation was research into the perjury trial of President Bill Clinton in 1997. Lipka worked on a team organized and led by Special Prosecutor Ken Starr.

This particular investigation -- unlike most others that Lipka has worked on during her time with the FBI -- gained immense attention both nationally and globally. Lipka was the very first FBI special agent to dive into and analyze the infamous tapes of conversations between Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp. Per the request of Starr, Lipka examined the discussions for any pertinent evidence and to help decipher whether or not Lewinsky was being truthful. Starr wanted to ensure that Lewinksy’s claims were true before prosecuting the case more in depth. There were 22 tapes in total. Following heavy analysis of the conversations and hours of examination, Lipka informed Starr that Lewinsky was not simply fantasizing about the President of the United States, but rather, there was an existing sexual relationship occurring. This analysis conducted by Elaine Lipka led to further work on the case, including transcriptions of the audio and working hand-in-hand with Tripp to clarify inaudible segments.
