SANTA ROSA, Calif. – The Washington Post said Tuesday that a former FBI official, W. Mark Felt, was the confidential source known as “Deep Throat” who provided the newspaper information that led to President Nixon’s impeachment and eventual resignation.

The paper made its announcement on its Web site after Felt, 91 and living in California, talked to a lawyer who wrote a magazine article for Vanity Fair.

“The No. 2 guy from the FBI, that was a pretty good source,” said Ben Bradlee, who had been the key editor at the Post in the Watergate era.
