Storyboard Text

  • President Nixon, you must hand over the tapes. You have broken the law and you must be put on trial.
  • Five burglars broke into the national office of the Democratic Party.  Later, people found out that President Nixon and his aids were involved in the burglary.   
  • I refuse to hand over the tapes. These conversations are confidential. 
  • This must be taken to the Supreme Court.
  • They wanted to get information to help Nixon get re-elected. Investigators also found that Nixon and his aids had committed other illegal acts too.
  • This is our evidence.
  • I'm the judge, so I will have final say.
  • As President Nixon's lawyer, I feel like these tapes should stay confidential.
  • Nixon kept a tape recorder in the Oval Office. This means that the tapes included the conversations that Nixon had with his aids. President Nixon was asked to turn in the tapes.
  • We have justice over this criminal case.
  • Nixon refused to hand over the tapes to the prosecutor. The president appealed the decision to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Because the case was so important, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case.
  • Nixon's lawyer argued that President Nixon's conversations should stay confidential under the executive privilege. He stated that conversations like these shouldn't be released out into the public. It was to protect the country. 
  • Justice in the criminal case was more important than protecting the privacy of the President and his aids. In this case, President Nixon was forced to hand over the tapes.
