Storyboard Text

  • United States V.S Nixon
  • The special prosecutor in the Watergate scandal subpoenaed the tape recordings of conversations involving the President and his advisers regarding the scandal. The President’s counsel moved to quash the subpoena citing Article II of the United States Constitution  and its grant of privilege to the President. The President’s counsel also argued it was a non-justifiable question because it was a disagreement between parts of the executive branch
  • NEVER!!
  • GIVE US THE TAPES,NIXON!
  • Is the President's right to safeguard certain information, using his "executive privilege" confidentiality power, entirely immune from judicial review?
  • After petitioner Nixon, the Chief Judge of a Federal District Court, was convicted of federal crimes and sentenced to prison, the House of Representatives adopted articles of impeachment against him and presented them to the Senate. Following proceedings pursuant to Senate Rule XI - which allows a committee of Senators to hear evidence against an impeached individual and to report that evidence to the full Senate - the Senate voted to convict Nixon, and the presiding officer entered judgment removing him from his judgeship.
  • In the end, Richard Nixon's "executive privilege" but him under the law, with equal treatment as every other individual. If the police have a reasonable excuse to search documents, or recorded footage, it will always be futile to resist
  • THE LAW
  • In July 1974, the Supreme Court decided unanimously that Nixon must hand over the tapes. The Court said that under the Constitution, the judiciary had the final voice, not the Executive branch. As for "executive privilege," the Court acknowledged that the President had a right to privileged communication where certain areas of national security were concerned. However, the Court stated that this case did not meet those conditions. 
  • THE COURT HAS RULED THAT NIXON MUST TURN IN THE TAPES
  • THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!!!
