What I’m Reading: All The President’s Men – 15 in a series – “…if they believed the resignation was unconnected to Watergate.”

“July 1, nine days after the President’s statement, Mitchell resigned as manager of the Nixon campaign, explaining that his wife had insisted he quit. Woodward asked several members of the Post’s national staff, which was handling the story, if they believed the resignation was unconnected to Watergate. They did. The next day, metropolitan editor Harry Rosenfeld frowned and told Woodward: “A man like John Mitchell doesn’t give up all that power for his wife.”
