"He Never Really Voice Pure, Raw Outrage To Me About Watergate Or What It Represented. The Crimes And Abuses Were Background Music. Nixon Was Trying To Subvert Not Only The Law But The Bureau.

He Was Disgraced. But Surviving And Enduring His Hidden Life, In Contrast And In His Own Way, Mark Felt Won."
