Keith Olbermann reports on Countdown:
This is the first time that anyone in the White House has been indicted in 130 years. That includes some of the biggest scandal in recent memory. Countdown talks with one of the central figures in Watergate, John Dean.
But is it true? Oliver North was indicted on 16 counts in 1988 and later convicted on 3 charges. At least one web site describes him as a "White House official". Perhaps the distinction lies in the fact that Reagan fired North almost 2 years before he was indicted.
