J Edgar Hoover and Clyde Tolson
J. Edgar Hoover made a career off of knowing and using secrets to his advantage. His legacy as the first director of the FBI is tinged with scandals of illegal uses of federal funds and unconstitutional raids on people from radial groups. Those around him protected his image while he lived, and destroyed evidence of his own secrets after his death. A director and his deputy. Hiding in plain sight. Johnny and Clyde.
