G. Gordon Liddy one of the key figures in the infamous Watergate scandal which brought down former Republican President Richard Nixon has now died at the age of 90.

After the Watergate scandal, Liddy went on to become a well-known conservative talk radio host.

As The Hill reports:

His son, Thomas P. Liddy, confirmed his death to The Washington Post, adding that he passed away at his daughter’s home in Fairfax County, Virginia.

While his son did not provide a specific cause of death, he did say that it was not related to COVID-19.

G. Gordon Liddy, an enigmatic figure whose career spanned from an FBI official and congressional candidate to actor and radio talk show host, is best known for his failed plan under President Nixon to break into and bug the Democratic Party’s headquarters at the Watergate complex…

Liddy, after refusing to testify at both the Watergate hearings and his own criminal trial, was sentenced to a 20-year prison term. This was later commuted by President Carter in 1977 after Liddy served just 52 months of his sentence.

I was barely in my teens when Watergate happened, as a result, I’ve few memories of the event.
I’d say a villain for suggesting the crime but a hero for his loyalty. My condolences to his family.

If a democrat had done this it would have been applauded. But we ARE better than them and this should not have been tried. RIP

Watergate is nothing compared to what the democrats are doing today! My condolences to his family. I remember the name and some of what happened, but as a teenager politics wasn’t my priority at the time.

G. Gordon Liddy’s life was well lived, with a few rough spots ! According to the Lefties,
Watergate was the worst ever in American History, but pales in comparison to the farce of. OBAMAGATE, and the way the MEDIA ignored and lied about it. Nixon was almost as big of a TARGET as was/is DJ TRUMP ! Nixon won in a landslide, too. If you can find it, read
Liddy’s ” Things were different when I was a Kid “, for a real insight into this man’s mind.
