““Ratfucking?” The word struck a raw nerve with a Justice Department attorney. “You can go right to the top on that one. I was shocked when I learned about it. I couldn’t believe it. These are public servants? God. It’s nauseating. You’re talking about fellows who come from the best schools in the country. Men who run the government!”
“If the Justice Department could find a law against it, a jury of laymen would convict them on that. It’s absolutely despicable. Segretti? He’s indescribable. It would be useful for you to write an article about this type of conduct. I was so shocked. I didn’t it. It’s completely immoral. All these people, unbelievable. Look at Hunt. I don’t think he’s involved in the ratfucking. But he’s capable of anything. And he had access to the White House.”
All The President’s Men by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein
