Zitate Mark Felt
Richard Nixon to Alexander Haig (May 12, 1973)
„Aware of his own weaknesses, he readily conceded his flaws. He was, incongruously, an incurable gossip, careful to label rumor for what it was, but fascinated by it… He could be rowdy, drink too much, overreach. He was not good at concealing his feelings, hardly ideal for a man in his position.“
All the President's Men (1974) by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein
