The chief operative of the infamous Plumbers unit inside the Nixon White House – the man who orchestrated the Watergate building break-in – says that Hillary Clinton’s many scandals are “much larger” that anything of which Richard Nixon was accused.
“Bear in mind that nobody even caught a cold at the Watergate office building. But four devoted American citizens, including an ambassador, were left to die in Benghazi,” stated G. Gordon Liddy, the retired radio host, actor and bestselling author who was convicted of conspiracy, burglary and illegal wiretapping for his role directing and organizing the Watergate break-in.
After years of silence following his retirement from radio in July 2012, Liddy spoke on Sunday to “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and Philadelphia’s NewsTalk 990 AM and online.
The man at the center of the Watergate controversy, a political event whose namesake would go on to define future scandals for decades, Liddy sounded off on a myriad of alleged Clinton misdeeds, including her role in Benghazi as well as the latest events surrounding “email-gate.”
“It’s obvious what she has done,” said Liddy on Clinton’s private email server. “She has cherry picked information to go public. Destroyed and or concealed the rest.
“The woman is a flat out liar,” he said. “She’s a woman who is devoted to the dollar rather the country. And I think her election would be a disaster to the American people.”
Regarding the government’s response the night of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks, Liddy exclaimed, “It’s incredible to me that they let those people die.”
He continued: “You know, it’s like in World War II, on June 6th 1944, when we invaded Europe. Nobody wanted to wake up Adolph Hitler and tell him what was happening. It’s sort of akin to that. Nobody wanted to wake up anybody who can do anything.
“So they just hoped that they could skate through it,” he told Klein. “Well, people died because of that attitude.”
Liddy maintained that Hillary “has been getting away with it” because the “American press has been protecting her by sort of omission, if you know what I mean.”
Liddy, a former FBI agent, was in charge of the White House Plumbers unit, which existed from July-September 1971, during Richard Nixon’s presidency. The secretive group functioned as a covert Special Investigations Unit, investigating the leak of classified information, including the Pentagon Papers, to the news media.
Together with former CIA agent E. Howard Hunt, Liddy directed and organized the break-in and burglary of the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate building in 1972. He served four-and-a-half years in prison.
Liddy’s memoir about the experience, titled “Will,” sold more than a million copies and was made into a television movie. He later became an actor and penned numerous other books, including “When I Was a Kid, This Was a Free Country” and “Fight Back: Tackling Terrorism, Liddy Style.”
From 1992 to 2012, Liddy hosted a popular daily radio talk show syndicated through Radio America.
Liddy commented on the state of American talk radio during his interview Klein.
“Talk radio is one of the few counter balances, if you will, to the establishment press in the U.S.,” he said. “It’s sort of a rebel if you will. And people tend to trust talk radio just as they trust Fox News… If not for talk radio and Fox News, I think we’d be in a dictatorship by now.”
