McCord Runs His Own Spy Office

McCord rents an office suite adjacent to that of Muskie’s on K Street, Northwest, from which they plan to launch one of the OPAL entries. McCord, Hunt, and I had already surveyed it, and McCord had done a good job in selecting the site. We had a lease on the place and hoped that after the nomination the winner might take over the old Muskie space for some auxiliary purpose. Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate complex was expected to become the campaign headquarters of the winner.
