Five men were arrested for breaking into the offices of the Democratic National Committee on June 17, 1972. Geoff Shepard, who was an adviser to President Nixon, talked about five different conspiracy theories about the Watergate break-in and cover-up, comparing and contrasting each of version up to William Felt’s final admission that he was “Deep Throat.” He used slides throughout his presentation and he responded to questions submitted by members of the audience and over the Internet.
“Mysteries of Watergate” was the fourth of the “Richard Nixon Legacy Forums” held to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace, now the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. close
