the Nation, August 30, 1976

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (June 5) - The daughter of the former FBI agent who was revealed this week as "Deep Throat" has acknowledged that money played a role in the family's decision to go public.

W. Mark Felt, 91, was the key source in The Washington Post's Watergate investigation that helped bring down President Richard Nixon. Felt stepped forward last week, ending a three-decade debate about the source's true identity.

David Irving writes:

A CORRESPONDENT suggests, "One would almost have to conclude that organized Jewry had been getting access to the Nixon White House tapes in real time, and had already heard these threatening remarks (below), and then orchestrated W Mark Felt the deputy director of the FBI and the reporter Carl Bernstein as their two [Liberal] brethren in the most quickly-efficient and damaging positions to take action against Nixon."


Rev. Billy Graham: "The [Jewish] stranglehold has got to be broken, or the country's going to go down the drain."
President Nixon: "You believe that?"
Graham: "Yes, sir."
Nixon: "So do I. I can't ever say that, but I believe it."
Graham: "No, but if you get elected a second time, then we might be able to do something."
"He is relieved to get the secret off his chest," Joan Felt said of her father in an interview published Sunday in The Press Democrat.

Joan Felt, 61, told the newspaper there were many reasons her family wanted to reveal the elder Felt's role in Watergate after three decades, but added, "I won't deny that to make money is one of them." Some literary agents have said the family could earn more than $1 million from a book deal.

"My son, Nick, is in law school and he'll owe $100,000 by the time he graduates," she said. "I am still a single mom, still supporting them to one degree or another, and I am not ashamed of this."

Joan Felt said her father suffered a stroke in 2001 and has undergone surgeries for heart problems and a broken hip but is still lucid.

"We had to help him see that most of the world now considers what he did heroic," she said. "At the time it was happening, he wouldn't have gotten that percentage of support, but history has shown it was so important what he did."
