The mysterious life of James McCord, Watergate burglar whose death went unnoticed for 2 years

In the mid-1990s, the Discovery Channel aired a five-part series on Watergate, calling it a “refresher course” on the audacious White House scandal that drove President Nixon from office.

It might be time for a sequel.

There was a time when the shadowy cast of characters behind the break-in of the Democratic national headquarters were household names, as familiar to Americans as those on a lineup card — G. Gordon Liddy, E. Howard Hunt, John Ehrlichman — on they went.

But the years have not been particularly kind to Watergate.

1. E. Howard Hunt

3. Rachel Maddow did a special series podcast on Agnew,, The Bag Man

It is so worth listening to. This actually flew under everyone's radar. Rachel did a great job in laying it out and interviewing the young (now older) state attorneys who pursued the investigation.

5. Likewise, I doubt Trump's passing would go unnoticed.

Way too many folks would have to battle me to be the first to piss on......

Well, you get the idea!
