"W. Mark Felt, 91, who was second-in-command at the FBI in the early 1970s, ... says he was the source called Deep Throat who leaked secrets about President Richard Nixon's Watergate coverup to The Washington Post [and Felt] kept the secret even from his family until 2002, when he confided to a friend that he had been Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward's source," Vanity Fair reported Tuesday, May 31, 2005. [1]

According to the Associated Press, May 31, 2005, "Felt is one of a number of people who have been named over the years as the source whose disclosures helped bring down the Nixon presidency. Others include Assistant Attorney General Henry Peterson, deputy White House counsel Fred Fielding, and even ABC newswoman Diane Sawyer, who then worked in the White House press office. ... In 1999, Felt denied he was the man." [2]
