Mark Felts family ends 30 years of speculation, identifying Felt, the former FBI assistant director, as Deep Throat, the secret source who helped unravel the Watergate scandal. The Felt familys admission, made in an article in Vanity Fair magazine, took legendary reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who had promised to keep their sources identity a secret until his death, by surprise. Tapes show that Nixon himself had speculated that Felt was the secret informant as early as 1973.
The question Who was Deep Throat? had been investigated relentlessly in the ensuing years since Watergate in movies, books, televisions shows, and on the Internet. America was obsessed with the shadowy figure who went to great lengths to conceal his involvement with the Washington Post reporter

I heard that deep throat the movie sucked.
About 9:45 a.m. on May 2, 1972, Felt was in his office at the FBI when an assistant director came to report that Hoover had died at his home. Felt was stunned. For practical purposes, he was next in line to take over the bureau.
Yet Felt was soon to be visited with immense disappointment. Nixon nominated L. Patrick Gray III to be the acting director. Gray was a Nixon loyalist going back years. He had resigned from the Navy in 1960 to work for candidate Nixon during the presidential contest that Nixon lost to John F. Kennedy.
Nothing but revenge. It is all about power and control and which party will give it to them. An evil cloud is covering this nation.

That just isn’t a look a President should have on his face as he is greeting guests.
“That just isnt a look a President should have on his face as he is greeting guests.”
It is when the guest is Monica Lewinsky.
It sucked three ways... long, deep and continuous.
“It sucked three ways... long, deep and continuous.”
And with fireworks!
“Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer”
Chuckie was definitely right on this one when he warned Trump not to take on the spooks... But maybe it wouldn’t have made any difference since 90% were against Trump to begin with.
Pharoah Tuthmose III thought he could take on someone back in the day and found out he wasn't all he thought he was.
Can you give us an oral review?
