Richard Nixon’s first vice president resigned amid charges of bribery and tax evasion.  Re-visit this extraordinary chapter in American history with Michael Yarvitz, executive producer and co-writer with Rachel Maddow of the podcast series and book, Bag Man. In conversation with WTOP’s Chris Cruise, Yarvitz will share the largely forgotten story of how Agnew came under investigation by federal prosecutors for bribery and, before he was forced to resign, did everything to try and stay in office, including attacking the press and trying to shut down the investigation.
