If there is one thing you can say about Elaine Xydis Lipka, it is that she knows what to do in nearly every situation she finds her self in. During her nearly 30 years with the FBI, she has made herself essential to the Bureau by engaging in all sorts of essential activities that many Special Agents find to be too “mundane,” or not worth their time. For example, as an investigator, she was responsible for identifying those responsible for certain criminal activities, and also for conducting interviews and collecting evidence with the intention of convicting those responsible for crimes and holding them accountable.
During her tenure at the FBI, Elaine Lipka has kept herself very busy. One of her proudest appointments was as a member of the Joint Terrorism Task Force ( JTTF), which is a multi-agency group of investigators. As a member of that important group, Elaine developed assets/informants and maintained a status as a liaison for many groups who were concerned about the same things. She also worked as part of a team of agents for Special Events Management, where they considered potential security issues and evaluated threats to those involved.
Because she was so highly respected, Elaine Xydis Lipka also acted as a liaison with agencies from a broad spectrum of local, state, federal governments, as well as foreign agencies. She was highly regarded enough to testify in court and in front of grand juries. Elaine also prepared and conducted a large number of briefings to FBI management. She also served as a case agent in a major national domestic terrorism case, and she has served as a prominent member of the Evidence Response Team (ERT). She also conducted physical surveillances and due diligence background investigations for various agents and others, fr a wide variety of purposes.
Back in 1997, Elaine Xydis Lipka was an integral part of building the case against President Clinton. At the time, she was a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This is a career that Lipka has held since 1991 following related experience and education. Lipka became a member of the team of FBI agents who worked directly underneath Special Prosector Ken Starr on the case. Lipka’s role in the perjury investigation was to examine more than 20 tapes of conversations that occurred between Linda Tripp and Lewisnky, and decipher whether or not the latter was being truthful in what she shared. Elaine Lipka listened through the tapes extensively and reported to Starr that Lewinsky was, indeed, being honest about the sexual relationship transpiring between herself the President. This was a pivotal development early in the case and it happened because of Lipka.
