After Howard Hunt made blackmail threats in this telephone conversation with Charles Colson on November 15, 1072, Dorothy Hunt's fate as the hush money courier was sealed.

She died in the plane crash the next month.

Howard Hunt then gathered his four children together and told them that he was going to plead guilty at the (first) Watergate trial scheduled the next month, January 1973, because he feared they would be killed to keep him quiet if he did not do so. He did plead guilty but in March, two months later, James McCord wrote a letter to Judge Sirica that exposed the hush-money cover-up that eventually led to the Nixon's resignation as president.
