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. Subscribe now.

I love the way Rachel Maddow is constantly finding and reporting little known, or forgotten stories we should all be aware of. Thank you Rachel.

Rachel Maddow educates. She doesn't shove opinions arounds, she gives you facts. She introduces you to the people that are running Washington etc on her show each night by explaining their back stories. People I wasn't aware of, she show me who they are, where they came from and how they have arrived at where they are. She gives her viewers all the pieces of a really sometimes crazy and sometimes scary Washington puzzle. Who knows who, and why... She educates. She uses facts. If she wasn't on MSNBC I wouldn't watch at all. I record her show, even though I usually watch it when it first airs. And yes, I hate when she goes fishing.... its nice she puts them back. Bag Man lives up to Maddow standards. I remember Agnew getting ousted on Tax evasion. I never heard more than that. I listened to a lot of the Watergate hearings. I was a Senior and I think Watergate may have drowned any news of Agnew out for me. To be honest, I always thought "they" decided to get rid of him before removing Nixon because they didn't want Agnnew or anyone related to Nixon administration around. So 'they' removed him and put in a mild mannered VP Gerald Ford for the country. Then when Agnew was gone told Nixon get out. Knowing the details of what this Crook was doing in the White House, know he was acting like some Shake Down Mob boss. I liked my mistaken illusions better. It is important to know the bastard was caught. Keep up the Great work Ms Maddow.

This is history repeating itself. When will we ever learn. Maddow rocks.

Very obvious where Trump has gotten not only his redirect from, but his strategy for fighting Mueller. He should look to the outcome though, as opinions changed just prior to the House Judiciary was set to vote.

Lester Matts was pronounced Mattis. At least it was by my father, Glenn Everett, a Washington correspondent at the time, with White House press credentials and Maryland resident. You are absolutely correct about Maryland politics being famously corrupt. Agnew wasn't the only governor who was convicted. Marvin Mandel did too.

It's really good i just wish it was released all at once it's like reading a great book in slow motion. Maybe I'll wait until the last part/episode is up then listen to the entire thing again from start to finish.
