"Everette Howard Hunt, Jr." was an American espionage/intelligence officer and writer. From 1949 to 1970, Hunt served as a CIA officer. Along with G. Gordon Liddy and others, Hunt was one of the Nixon White House "White House Plumbers/plumbers" — a secret team of operatives charged with fixing "political leak/leaks" (real or perceived causes of confidential Administration information being leaked to outside parties). Hunt and Liddy engineered the Watergate burglaries and other undercover operations for the Nixon Administration. In the ensuing Watergate scandal, Hunt was convicted of burglary, Conspiracy (crime)/conspiracy, and wiretapping, eventually serving 33 months in prison.More E. Howard Hunt on Wikipedia.
