Angelo J. Lano was an American field agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington DC, notable for his work heading the investigation of, and appearing as a witness for, the Watergate scandal surrounding President Richard M. Nixon.[1] Lano was one of a number of FBI agents who was falsely accused as a source of information for Carl Bernstein and the Washington Post during the investigation, which helped shift White House suspicions away from Mark Felt,[2] who was revealed as informant Deep Throat on May 31, 2005.
