During the Watergate Hearings, Fred Thompson was the Republican minority counsel for the hearings and, it turns out, a spy within the hearings for the Nixon Administration.

The Boston Globe broke the story on Wednesday, a day Fred Thompson was expected to announce his candidacy for president.

"Thompson was a mole for the White House," Scott Armstrong, Democratic Majority leader during the Watergate hearings claims. "Fred was working hammer and tong to defeat the investigation of finding out what happened to authorize Watergate and find out what the role of the president was."

Thompson's website actually takes credit for helping the investigation into the Nixon Administration's involvement in the Watergate break-in, saying he "gained national attention for leading the line of inquiry that revealed the audio-taping system in the White House Oval Office."
