The Huffington Post

The Huffington Post : "Duberstein said that, in reading all the media reports of the last few days, he put himself back in his shoes as White House chief of staff.

Duberstein, for those who don't know, is currently a Washington lobbyist, CEO of the eponymously named Duberstein Group. But, more significantly, he was Ronald Reagan's chief of staff after Nancy sacked Don Regan. And, it is because of that position that he has a unique perspective on the Mark Felt/'Deep Throat' saga."
