Nixon really wanted to be President for another term of presidency.
Washington Post: Watergate Break-In
Washin Post Wat Br
Frank Wills, a night watchman, removed the tape, and left to get coffee. When he returned the same lock had been taped. He then called the police.
The White House had nothing to do with that breakin!
The police then found five burglars dressed in suits, carrying cameras and stacks of hundred-dollar bills. Their names were James McCord, Virgilio Gonzales, Frank Sturgis, Eugenio Martinez, and Bernard Barker.
Most newspapers ignored the story of the break-in. But, the Washington Post ran a story front page about Watergate and that lead to a in-depth investigation.
Because of the Washington Post, Nixon and his men were accused of many assumptions. Within days of the breakin, Nixon denied that the White House had been involved.
