Robert Mullen Company
Robert Mullen Company is a public relations company in Washington DC. The firm was founded in 1952 by Robert R. Mullen, who was a campaign press secretary for Dwight D. Eisenhower and information director for the Marshall Plan. A Watergate committee report and a CIA document revealed that the Robert Mullen Company has in at least two instances been a front for CIA operations abroad.
In 1972 the company received public attention in relation to the Watergate scandal.
Howard Hunt Jr, a former official of the CIA and Robert Mullen Company employee, was convicted of conspiracy and served time in prison after a check with his name on it found at the scene of the break-in connected him to one of the burglars. Hunt had obtained a Covert Security Approval to handle the firm's affairs during Mullen's absence from Washington.
