E Howard Hunt’s secret diary
The missing handwritten “diary” of E Howard Hunt is buried in the October release of the JFK files. This is only, I believe, a portion of his infamous diary, and not the entire writing. As one might recall that during the first few months when the Watergate scandal was barely making headlines, there was a dramatic and dangerous campaign by Hunt and his wife Dorothy to blackmail President Nixon into paying money to Hunt for his silence. In Nixon’s own words captured in oval office recordings to his inner circle, he stresses that “Hunt knows too much.” How much did Hunt know and what did he know? Nixon placed a minimum value on Hunt’s threats to go public at over one million dollars. That may not sound like very much by today’s standards but by today’s standards, the 1972 million is now, in 2017, half a billion dollars. To be exact, it’s $585.61 million.
So what did Hunt have on Nixon? Well in the 9-page “diary” Hunt chronicles the Nixon approved, and at that time unknown CIA and Mafia plan to assassinate, among others, Fidel Castro. Back in 1972, this was political dynamite and would have caused Nixon his place in the upcoming November presidential election. Much of the “diary” is hard to read but I have worked out a great deal of what Hunt chronicled. Money was paid to Hunt but in Dec. 1972 as Dorothy Hunt was on her way to Chicago to hold a press conference with CBS anchor Michelle Clark, the plane, United 553, crashed into a residential area near Midway Airport killing Dorothy Hunt. Mrs. Hunt was carrying copies of the “diary”. Officials placed the blame for the crash on “pilot error.” On closer examination of events, it’s clear that the crash was deliberate. The day after the crash Nixon appointed White House aide Egil Krogh (Hunt’s boss in the secret “plumbers” team) Undersecretary of Transportation, supervising the NTSB and FAA investigations into the crash. One week later Nixon appointed his Deputy Assistant Alexander Butterfield head of the FAA. Five weeks after that Dwight Chapin, Nixon’s appointment secretary became a top executive at United Airlines. In the days following the crash Hunt pled guilty to charges stemming from Watergate and the blackmail threats stopped.

I never heard of a “secret diary” and I consider myself “interested” in the topic.
Seems like everyone is very quick to bury the stories.
