However, one part of Nixon's plan was to invade Cambodia... without telling Congress...
Congress did NOT like this and revoked "Tonkin Gulf Powers". Nixon knew he was in a little trouble but what he didn't know is that he would be his own villian.
Top secret information was printed in the newspaper called the Pentagon Papers. Although Nixon was not mentioned in the paper, he demanded them to be removed, causing suspicion. This was no longer President Nixon... he was turning into his own rival... Nichard Rixon.
Nichard knew he was in trouble but he was still determined to win the next election so he tried to find out information about the opposing party, known as Watergate, which took matters from bad to worse.
The public eventually found out about the wrongdoings of Nichard and attempted to take him out of office for good. Nichard knew what he had to do before being impeached.
Nichard resigned from office before losing his dignity to possible impeachment. Richard Nixon now goes down in history for the scandals of Nichard RIxon and is overlooked for his positive contributions.
