George Gordon Liddy, a central figure in the Watergate scandal, died Tuesday in Virginia. He was 90. His son, Thomas, confirmed his death was not related to COVID-19, but did not release any additional details.
What was his involvement in the scandal? A former FBI agent and Army veteran, Liddy served as the special assistant to Treasury in President Richard Nixon’s administration. He also led a team of operatives known as “the plumbers,” who were tasked with finding information leaks that could embarrass the administration.
