About Mark Felt

William Mark Felt, Sr. (born August 17, 1913) is a former agent and top official of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation. During the early investigation of the Watergate scandal (1972-1974), Felt was Associate Director, the second-ranking post in the FBI. In 2005, he was revealed to have been the informant known as Deep Throat, who provided Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward with critical leads on the story that eventually saw the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon in 1974. Felt was convicted in 1980 of violating the civil rights of several associates of members of the Weather Underground by ordering burglaries of their homes. He received a fine but was pardoned by President Ronald Reagan during his appeal. His identity as Woodward and Bernstein’s source was a secret for three decades and the source of much speculation in American politics and popular culture. Vanity Fair magazine revealed Felt was Deep Throat on 31 May 2005 when it published an article (eventually appearing in the July issue of the magazine) on its website by John D. O’Connor, an attorney acting on Felt’s behalf, in which Felt said, “I’m the guy they used to call Deep Throat.”
