Full Bio


One of the leading European newspapers, Le Matin, of Paris describes G. Gordon Liddy as "a man of fantastic intelligence and complexity." Educated privately by Benedictines and Jesuits, Mr. Liddy earned a BS degree from Fordham University and a Ll.D. from the Fordham Law School, graduating as a member of The Law Review. After two years service as an Army artillery officer during the Korean War, Mr. Liddy entered the FBI as a Special Agent, rapidly earned multiple commendations from the late J. Edgar Hoover and, at age 29, became the youngest Bureau Supervisor at FBI national headquarters in Washington, D.C., where he served during the Kennedy administration. Mr. Liddy resigned from the FBI in 1962 to practice international law in Manhattan. Thereafter he served as a prosecutor, ran unsuccessfully for Congress from the 28th district of New York, and then in 1968, ran the presidential campaign of Richard Nixon in that district. In the Nixon administration, Mr. Liddy served first as Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury; was then appointed Enforcement Legislative Counsel, authored the Explosives Control Act, and in 1971 was sent to the White House as Staff Assistant to the President of the United States. At the White House, Mr. Liddy had oversight responsibility for Treasury policy on firearms and explosives and authored the memorandum that led to the creation of the Drug Enforcement Administration. Subsequently he was assigned additional special duties as a member of the top secret White House Special Investigations Group. Mr. Liddy resigned his White House post to accept the positions of General Counsel of the 1972 Republican presidential campaign and the campaign finance committee, with additional duties as campaign political intelligence director. The rest is history. For his role in Watergate, and for refusing steadfastly to implicate others, Mr. Liddy was sentenced to over 20 years in prison. He served nearly five years, many in maximum security, including 106 days of solitary confinement, before his release by President Carter "in the interests of justice." Today, Mr. Liddy is the host of The G. Gordon Liddy Show, a radio program nationally syndicated in 160 markets; is the author of three best-sellers and magazine articles in numerous publications, including The New York Times Review of Books and Harper's, and is an actor in motion pictures and television, most recently, a co-star of "18 Wheels of Justice," a weekly television series on The National Network. He was awarded his second set of paratrooper wings after training in Israel and jumping with the elite IDF parachute regiment; is a member of the Honor Legion of the Police Department of the City of New York, and according to The Wall Street Journal, is "one of the most sought after speakers in the nation."
