Bruce Givner was a DNC intern on the 6th floor of the Watergate Complex the night of the famous Watergate break-in. While others left the DNC offices at roughly 6 p.m., Givner stayed until 12:05 a.m. the following morning availing himself of the DNC's free WATS line. He spent five hours on the phone with friends and family while he was being staked out from across the street by two members of the burglary "watch team." Due to his late departure, Givner foiled the plans of the Watergate burglars whose goal was to break-in around 10 p.m. Instead, they had to wait until Givner turned off the lights at the midnight hour. Had the burglars kept to their original plan, there never would have been a Watergate! Or any subsequent "gate" thereafter. Givner tells his intimate story in a fascinating way and from his point of view. For years he has been dubbed the"Mystery Man" and reporters and authors have interviewed him many times over the years. He will share his story, along with the Watergate arresting officers, John Barrett and Paul Leeper, who will be on hand to assist Givner with a tour of the 6th floor and a lively Q&A.

Los Angeles, Calif.
—Bruce Givner, a DNC intern on the 6th floor of the infamous Watergate office building the night of Friday June 16 and early morning hours of June 17, 1972, will unveil his new book, “MY WATERGATE SCANDAL TELL-ALL: How I Unwittingly Caused This Historic Event" on Monday evening, June 10, 2019, at 6 p.m. on the sixth floor of the Watergate. Arresting Watergate officers, John Barrett and Paul Leeper, will be on hand to join Givner, according to Todd Baldwin of SAGE Publishing who is hosting the event, and whose staff now occupies the former DNC headquarter 6th floor offices.

Givner, a prominent West Los Angeles tax attorney, who represents celebrities and wealthy families, has chronicled his unique Watergate experience in a “Tell-all” memoir. “I was a 21-year-old intern for the DNC and stayed late the night of June 16, 1972, to use the WATS line,” Givner explains. “For five hours I made telephone calls to friends and family, thwarting the burglars’ plans. They were scheduled to break in at 10 p.m.” Givner left at 12:05 a.m.

Givner will not only tell his story of what happened to him that night, plus the days and years that followed, he also will be accompanied by Watergate arresting officers, John Barrett and Paul Leeper, who will also share their respective experiences during the wee hours of June 17, 1972, when Barrett discovered the five burglars huddled together in a cubicle.

“We have a display commemorating the historic Watergate event,” Baldwin explained. “Now, on June 10, we will have the rare opportunity of meeting and talking to three of the most interesting ‘insiders’ involved in Watergate.” Baldwin’s staff will be privy to a private presentation earlier that day.

After the presentation, the three will then take the media and distinguished guests on a tour of the premises—recounting the night’s events, step-by-step. It will be followed by a lively Q&A.
