Here's when the second episode of HBO’s miniseries 'White House Plumbers' drops
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: There’s a new take on the Watergate scandal in town. HBO has delved into the notorious deeds of President Richard Nixon and his men who entertained the corrupt practice of bugging the offices of their opposition at the Watergate complex to gain an undue advantage in the upcoming election. Despite their best efforts, the ‘White House Plumbers’ appointed by President Nixon to fix the leaks to the press and then find dirt on the opposition didn’t garner the best results. In fact, they were caught and later sentenced.
The two founding members of the ‘White House Plumbers’, E Howard Hunt and Gordon Liddy, both former CIA and FBI agents respectively, are tasked to discredit Daniel Ellsberg, the man responsible for leaking the Pentagon Papers to the press in the first episode. The duo travel to Los Angeles in a bad wig and funky clothes, making an undercover operation look like a vacation. Hunt then calls a few Cuban men who work for the CIA to break into Ellsberg’s psychiatrist’s office to retrieve his file and prove him as a madman working for the communist. Unfortunately, both Hunt and Liddy are somewhat inadequate at their jobs and fail to retrieve any file or evidence, which proves that Ellsberg is a communist.
