  • The Watergate Scandal
  • The morning of June 17, 1972, burglars were caught trying to steal some files, and wiretapping phones, little was known by then that Nixon was behind this all along.
  • June In 1971...
  • My Re-election campaign has no ties to this break-in and will continue normally.
  • The times published a series of front-page articles based on the recent release of the pentagon papers and the Watergate break-in.
  • Nixon was later found guilty of the accusations held against him, he needed to decide what his next move would be.
  • 1973, people had found out what Nixon had done slowly, and they came to realise the full gravity of the situation as well.
  • I knew it! I will never trust another president after this, this...this was just too much to hide from his own people.
  • The hope we had for Nixon, He threw it away!
  • August 8, 1974
  • "Therefore, I will resign my presidency effective at the time of noon tomorrow, no later. Vice President Ford will be sworn in as my replacement at that hour in this office."
  • And thus...The watergate scandal from that day onward was known through the media, and given to the people across America. This event also led to further distrust in our future presidents.
