Film screening and discussion in partnership with CNN Original Series.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Watergate break-in, we will host an in-person screening of the premiere episode of the new CNN Original Series, Watergate: Blueprint for a Scandal. The series, told firsthand by John Dean, former White House Counsel to President Richard Nixon, examines the Watergate affair and the anatomy of the infamous break-in that started it all. Featuring rich archival footage and interviews with key insiders who had a front row seat to the biggest Presidential scandal of the 20th century, Watergate: Blueprint for a Scandal questions if America has learned anything since Watergate or if we, as a nation, are destined to repeat the past. Following the screening, John Dean and special guests will join us to discuss the episode, moderated by CNN Senior Legal Analyst Laura Coates.
