Storyboard Text

  • Stage #5
  • Richard Nixon is being charged with misusing presidential power to violate the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens, obstruction of justice, and defying Judiciary Committee subpoenas.
  • 
  • These tapes were a shabby, disgusting, immoral performance.
  • In late July 1974, the Supreme Court ruled that Nixon must turn over the remaining tapes, the House Judiciary Committee adopted three articles of impeachment against the president.
  • I admit making some judgments that were wrong, but I insist that I always acted on what I believed at the time to be the best interests of the nation.
  • In early August of 1974, Nixon provided transcripts of the eight subpoenaed tapes. They all contained the "smoking gun" - the evidence that Nixon had knowingly violated the law and that he had known about and had participated in the cover-up of the Watergate break-in from almost the very beginning - something he had constantly denied.
  • The End
  • The tapes revealed that the president and his advisors were petty and mean, constantly using vulgar and offensive expletives in their conversations.
  • Richard Nixon resigned on August 9th, 1974.
  • Grace Miller
