Deep Throat dead

Mark Felt has died aged 95.

Mark Felt was Deep Throat. It was the code name given to the secret source who provided information to The Washington Post about the involvement of the then US President Richard Nixon's administration in what came to be known as the Watergate scandal.

It led to Nixon's downfall, the only US Presidential resignation in history.
