W. Mark Felt, a 91-year-old former top official of the FBI, has come forward as being the informant known as Deep Throat, who passed information to journalist Bob Woodward leading to the uncovering of the Watergate scandal. Felt's attorney, John D. O'Connor, claims in an upcoming Vanity Fair article that Felt admitted in 2002 to being "the guy they used to call Deep Throat" - even though he denied being the informant in 1999, when he told The Hartford Courant, "I would have done better ... Deep Throat didn't exactly bring the White House crashing down, did he?" The scandal was the subject of the 1976 film All the President's Men, starring Robert Redford  as Woodward and Dustin Hoffman as partner Carl Bernstein.
