Howard Hunt White House number 202-456-2282

It was the number in the White House for Howard Hunt. He was an intelligence Officer who helped plan the Watergate break in. However, upon investigation the  investigators found that the number 202-456-2282 wasn’t being billed in the normal way. The bill was being sent to a girl in Alexandria, Virginia.

When the FBI visited the property they found that the billing address was for a White House employee named Kathleen Chenau. She was an office worker at the White House who had typed multiple memos for the Watergate plotters, including break-in plans.
