Prologue

“We act like it can’t happen again, and it did a lot of stuff after, there was a lot of hew-hawing and passin’ laws and givin’ speeches but I, do you ask me, do I think we learned anything from it [Watergate]?

“Mr. Chairman, I think this; I strongly believe that the Truth always emerges. I don’t know if it’ll be during these Hearings, I don’t know if it’ll be through the processes of history, but the Truth will out some day.”

John W. Dean III testimony from The Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities,

aka the Sam Ervin Senate Watergate Hearings, July 25-28, 1973
