There was no "first break-in" at Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate over Memorial Day weekend 1972. There were no electronic "bugs" planted in DNC headquarters at all that weekend. There were no "logs" of intercepted conversations, because there were no bugs to begin with. What the world knows as "Watergate" was an elaborate hoax designed to hide what the CIA was really doing over those three days, while Americans were cooking out and celebrating the start of summer. It was three days that changed the history of the world—but the "Official Story" of a break-in at the Watergate that weekend is the real cover-up of something far darker, far more malignant, than the world has ever known. "Watergate" was a hoax. It was a malicious fiction. And fiction doesn't leave a paper trail.
