The White House Plumbers Story
According to HBO’s official synopsis, “The White House Plumbers” chronicles the story of Nixon’s political saboteurs and Watergate masterminds, E. Howard Hunt (Woody Harrelson) and G. Gordon Liddy (Justin Theroux), who inadvertently brought down the Presidency they were so eager to preserve.
The series is based in part on public records and Egil “Bud” Krogh and Matthew Krogh’s 2016 book, “Truthfulness: Good People, Bad Choices, and Life Lessons from the White House.”
“The burglary is virtually the initial scene in the record of the Watergate photos ever made,” Mandel added. “You see flashes of the burglary, and then you see individuals in the Oval Office, [President Richard] Nixon, and the Washington Post publications.”
This is an incomplete series in which the burglary occurs 100 times out of 100. We’ll meet these guys before the robbery, and we’ll see the effects of the robbery on their life. This is the section that, to a large extent, none of the other [tales] dealt with.” The Men in Charge
“The White House Plumbers” stars Justin Theroux (“The Leftovers”) and Woody Harrelson (“True Detective”). Theroux plays G. Gordon Liddy, a former FBI agent who oversaw Richard M. Nixon’s election campaign before being sent to a covert White House Special Inquiries squad known as you guessed it, the White House Plumbers.
The squad, which included E. Howard Hunt (played by Harrelson), was tasked with preventing further leaks of secret information to the media immediately after the Pentagon Papers were published. (Thus, “plumbers.”)
Meanwhile, Hunt was a former CIA official when he was recruited to work in Nixon’s White House. Hunt’s reputation as a respected intelligence officer suffered after the Bay of Pigs debacle in 1961. (His employees were brought in to remove Fidel Castro’s regime, tying him to the failed invasion.)
Longways with their crew, Hunt and Liddy plotted the burglary of the Independent National Committee offices in May and June 1972, which resulted in Richard Nixon’s resignation letter.
“It’s appealing,” Mandel added. “Howard Hunt was just a heartless guy in some respects attempting to revive his glory days; he [blamed] Kennedy for what he had misplaced at the Bay of Pigs and was just trying to get roughly of the magic back.”
