Transcript Source Steps Forward Story by Rachael Seeley n -*i Pulitzer Prize- winning reporter Bob Woodward spent much of 2005 sharing details of his experience with Mark Felt, the long-masked Watergate informant. he identity of the source that leaked information about a grand jury investigation into President Richard M. Nixon to The Washington Post in the 1970s — sparking a chain of events that lead to Nixon's impeachment and eventual resignation — was made known to the public in the pages of Vanity Fair magazine late in the spring semester. Former FBI official W. Mark Felt admitted to being the secretive informant known as "Deep Throat" after yielding to pressure from his daughter Joan and family members to admit his true identity in hopes of bringing the family money from the ensuing publicity. Bob Woodward, the Post reporter to whom Felt spoke after the Watergate break-in, published a book on his relationship with Felt in July 2005. Felt, 91, admitted through his family to feeding confidential information from FBI files to Woodard, aiding the Post in its piecing together Nixon's role in the robbery of the Democrats' national headquarters in the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C. Dubbed the Watergate scandal, the robbery implicated influential members of the Republican Party, including President Nixon. Nixon's public trouble began when five robbers snuck into the Democrats' national headquarters dressed in business suits and armed with eavesdropping and photographic equipment June 17, 1972. Nixon's team had hoped to learn of the Democrats' campaign strategies. By becoming an informant, Felt believed he could make Nixon answerable to the public and pressure the FBI into continuing its investigation of his role in the robberies. Felt and Woodard had clandestine meetings late at night in the bottom level of an underground parking garage to discuss information about the case. Woodard would reposition a flowerpot containing a red cloth on his apartment balcony to indicate he needed a meeting that night to Felt. Felt gained inspiration for these cautious tactics while working for the general desk of the Espionage Section of the FBI during World War II. Some believe Deep Throat is a hero for exposing Nixon's illegal activities, but others call him a traitor for illegally leaking information from confidential FBI files to the press and want him to be prosecuted. When asked whether he thought Felt was a hero, President George W. Bush was reluctant to pass judgment, saying, "It's hard for me to judge ... it was a revelation that caught me by surprise!' 182
