On Doing Your Own Investigation: Philip A. Lacovara -- Watergate Prosecutor

As Counsel to Watergate Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski, Philip A. Lacovara rose to prominence at the age of 30 when he successfully pled his office's case for the so-called Nixon Tapes—secret White House recordings of conversations that would finally prove President Nixon's involvement in the Watergate cover-up.

Dear Mr. Lacovara:

The enclosed materials were returned to me by mistake by the FBI. I did not forward these materials to the Bureau.

I am not competent to answer why the FBI deems the concerns of the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld relating to my mental stability and potential for violence outside its investigative jurisdiction.

You may want to address this issue with the Office of U.S. Attorney.
