These are rough notes on the Watergate Affair; I will try to polish them up in the next couple of days.
Did you know, for example, that the "Plumbers" had already been in the Watergate once; but their bugging device failed. So they went back in on June 17, 1972.
Did you know there were illegal wiretaps on numerous reporters, and a Harvard professor? That Haldeman was happy to hear Teamsters thugs would beat the s--- out of anti-war protesters? That the original burglars were caught by police wearing blue surgical gloves?
What a cesspool of political behavior.
