I don't quite understand something in this passage:
"In January 1998, after Lewinsky had submitted an affidavit in the Paula Jones case denying any physical relationship with Clinton, and had attempted to persuade Tripp to lie under oath in that case, Tripp gave the tapes to Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr, adding to his ongoing investigation into the Whitewater controversy."
What does "adding to his ongoing investigation" mean? Dictionaries say that "add to" could mean "increase". Substituting this definition into the passage leads to:
"...increasing his ongoing investigation...."
which is no clearer than the original.
