I'm hardly a hippie but;

 

"Liddy was convicted of conspiracy, burglary and illegal wiretapping. Liddy was sentenced to a 20-year prison term and was ordered to pay $40,000 in fines. He began serving the sentence on January 30, 1973."

Last I heard Barr was all over conducting a thorough and comprehensive investigation into that sort of thing.

Relax and remain confident.

Liddy was convicted of conspiracy, burglary and illegal wiretapping. At least the wiretapping part could be illegal surveillance, but only in a general sense and not by definition. I was in high school then.
