This decision reaffirmed the principle that the president is not above the law. In August 1974, the House Judiciary Committee voted to recommend that Nixon be impeached for conspiracy to obstruct justice. He became the only president in US history to resign. Nixon’s presidency was a classic example of the abuse of political power. The corruption was embedded deep in his administration including his vice president, attorney general, and White House aides.
I walked out and saw a boy who said his name was Gustav Holtzer we had talked for a few minutes to see where we were from an such. He was from Germany and being charged for stealing food and clothes.

They told me to wait over 2 hours just like getting off the ship.

Thanks to his previous domestic policies and foreign policy successes, Richard Nixon won a landslide victory in the presidential election 1972. Viewing difference of opinion and critic as a threat to national security, Nixon “developed an ‘enemies list’ that included reporters, politicians, and celebrities unfriendly to the administration.” (1) In June 1972, five men, who were later proved to be former employees of Nixon’s reelection committee, were caught for breaking into Democratic party headquarters in the Watergate apartment complex in Washington, D.C. Initially promoted by the media, political investigations of the Watergate began in 1973 as a Committee was established by the Senate. While it’s uncertain whether or not Nixon knew about
This scandal served as a precursor to America 's overwhelming distrust of the government. Suspected of orchestrating a break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C., President Nixon’s administration attempted to cover up any signs of their involvement. This scandal led to the discovery of many abuses of power by the Nixon administration, Nixon’s impeachment, eventually Nixon’s resignation from office in August of 1974. Though there is no solid evidence to convict President Nixon of directly ordering the break in, his administration was indeed guilty of trying to cover the entire ideal by paying off witnesses. This scandal added to a growing credibility gap which began during Lyndon B. Johnson’s
The spread of communism had always been an issue in the United States. Once World War II had ended, the United States faced another period of fear about the spread of communism and the fear of over throwing the government. U.

Alleged communist spies were called forth to give a testimony before a Senate subcommittees.
He was thought to have known about the coup and even supported it. Also, we first sent troops to fight in Vietnam after what was believed to be an attack on two U.S. ships. It was in the Gulf of Tonkin, and two U.S. destroyers reported that they had been fired at by the North Vietnamese. Lyndon B. Johnson was the president of the U.S. during this, and he made the decision to engage in the war because of the report that could be faulty. He was the first president of the United States to really engage in the war.
The next day he waited in the tallest tower in new york, and waited by the outlet that soap man usually tried to plug the device into. The sewer titan decided to hide, and use the element of surprise. The night before he attached a ramp to the ceiling, and in the ramp he would roll a balloon full of dirty sewer water, and fly feces. When Soap Guy walked in, the door would trigger the balloon, which would roll down the track and hit soap man! The sewer
Watergate has entered the political world as a term synonymous with scandal and corruption; yet the Watergate hotel is one of Washington 's most luxurious hotels. Richard Nixon was the 37th president of the United States. He was a very sly and deceiving president. He ordered people to break into the Watergate hotel complex, he bugged phone lines and he taped many of his White House conversations. The decision to burglarize and steal information from the Democratic Headquarters in the Watergate Hotel with the intent to help the Republican Party came to be known as Watergate and ultimately led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon.
