Description

Is it possible for an American Vice President to carry out a criminal enterprise inside the White House and have nobody remember? To have one of the most brazen political bribery scandals in American history play out before the country while nobody’s paying attention? In her first original podcast, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow goes back 45 years to dig into a story that got overshadowed in its day. There’s intrigue. Corruption. Envelopes of cash delivered to the White House. It’s a story that’s not well known, but it probably should be. Especially today. Bag Man. A Rachel Maddow podcast from MSNBC. Launching October 30th.

Truly amazing work by Rachel and her team. I chuckled when Rod Roseintein’s name came up. May the strength of the past defenders of American institutions embolden the present to safeguard those institutions for future generations. BRAVO!!

There is a great deal of history, ours, as well as that of other places on the globe, that has not been thoroughly documented. Has it intentionally been buried from future public view by those who were possibly affected by its outcomes or shamed by its alleged facts? Perhaps, due to the possibility, risk, or question of whether such not-so-well-known events, like those of BAGMAN's Spiro Agnew reoccuring, a political scientist with the curiosity of a Rachell Maddow, shows up to ask the question, 'I wonder if this happened before . . . when ? . .to whom ? . .why .?.. and how does that outcome affect our actions and decisions now?" I for one am grateful for Rachell's broad political science expertise, her focused research leadership, her curiosity and her intention to use technology, creative story-telling techniques, the best of corroboration partners and the excitement to educate us and incite us to get involved. Thank you, Rachell, for telling me of a time when I was too busy to pay attention.

Great example of the truth of an old adage, if we do not learn from history we are doomed to repeat it. That statement no more true or relevant than today.

This was a very interesting story. I was 15 at this time and just barely paying attention to politics. However I am a history geek and some of it got thru my teenage haze. You have presented a side that was brushed over by Watergate. VP Agnew's crimes were glossed over. Nice to understand what happened. Love you for keeping things straight Rachel. ARBCasey

WOW!! I lived through this and I didn't know half this stuff! Very informative and detailed, more information than was released at the time. I've always been a political junkie and this was a wonderfully written story about an extremely tumultuous period of our country. A lesson we all should be learning as it so closely is echoed in our current administration's actions.

I was absolutely dumbstruck by the parallels to our current day president. history really does repeat itself...wonder how it will end this time around however.
