Young worked with Egil Krogh, deputy to John D. Ehrlichman with an assignment concerned with domestic and external security. In this role, he investigated information leaks within the Nixon administration, and was jointly responsible (with Krogh) for the founding of the White House Special Investigations Unit, subsequently known as "The Plumbers" ("We stop leaks"). Young is said to be the source of the "Plumbers" nickname.

The Plumbers unit, which included E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy, participated in clandestine and ultimately illegal activities, notably the 1971 burglary of the offices of Daniel Ellsberg's former psychatrist and the 1972 burglary of the Democratic National Committee offices at the Watergate complex.

Investigation resulted in Young's resignation from government service, although he was spared jail through the grant of limited immunity on the motion of the Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities.

Since then he has become a resident of England, a lecturer in international events and a consultant to various political leaders.
