Nixon was Republican, and less than half a year before the election, a burglary had occurred in the Democratic headquarters. Nixon said that he was not guilty for the crime that had occurred, but later on video footage was discovered that stated the opposite of what Nixon had said. Congress then proceeded to take the footage, but Nixon tried to stop them saying that since he was president, he had the right to private conversations that no other branch could look at. When this case was brought to the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court agreed for the most part with what Nixon was saying however, they said that that was only the case in certain circumstances. They also stated that in a case like this, the judicial branch had the last word, and Nixon resigned from
cabinet official served jail time for a felony committed while in office. The government had set aside oil-rich public lands at Teapot Dome, Wyoming, and Elk Hills, California, for use by the U.S. Navy. Albert Fall secretly leased the land to two private oil companies. Although Fall claimed that these contracts were in the government’s interest, he suddenly received more than $400,000 in “loans, bonds, and cash.” He was later found guilty of bribery and became the first American to be convicted of a felony while holding a cabinet post.
The period of time after the Civil War and before World War I was a period of tremendous change in America. Although immigration is a major tenet of the United States, due to the changing economy, improvements in transportation, a shifting of the American people to the city, and deepening class divisions, industrialization was the most powerful force shaping the country between 1865 and 1914, followed by urbanization, and finally immigration. The most noticeable effects of industrialization are changes to the economy, alterations in the distribution of wealth, and the rise of organized labor. Overall, the growth of industry raised the standard of living for most people.
The Teapot Scandal When senator Fall became secretary of the interior, in 1921, he handled the public oil reserves, which both Republican leaders and Democrats accorded for future Naval use. And, therefore, they banned their private exploitation. Nevertheless, he leased those lands; which contained the prohibited domes and reservoirs, in California and Wyoming, to the companies that repaid his favour with loans and gifts. And, though he tried to silence his steps, he and his friends failed to dodge investigation.
Trusts, or large monopolies, were corporations that combined and lowered their prices to drive competitors out of the business. This infuriated many americans at that time because it allowed such a small number of people to become wealthy, or even successful at all. When Theodore Roosevelt became president, he sympathized with workers unlike most of the presidents in the past who usually tried to help the corporations. As illustrated in Document A, Roosevelt wanted to hunt down the bad trusts ad put a leash on the good ones in order to regulate them. However, it only had a limited effect because the government was unable to control the activity of banks and railroads which were two of the most powerful industries in the world.

“If you do business with terrorists, if you support or succour them, you will not do business with the United States” said George Bush, but Bush froze assets connected to Bin Laden and didn 't tell the people that the terrorist mastermind’s late brother was an investor in the oil company he owned (Arbusto Energy). After the 9/11 took place there was no immediate reaction on Bush’s face which clearly shows us that Bush and the government knew that this incident was going to happen. On the day of the 9/11 attack, approximately 4000 employees did not go to work which mostly included senior staff. This attack has also happened with the help of the government and we know this because mostly the senior employees did not go to work that day which beyond any doubt tells us that the government knew this attack was going to take place. Before this hideous incident, there was a Pentagon drill where almost 2000 people prepared for a passenger plane crash.

This offer was sent through a telegram to Mexico City, but Great Britain intercepted the message and shared the information with the United States. This event led to the United States declaring war on Germany on April 6, 1917.
In the case of Dale Emerson and Ernest Wallace I believe that Wallace was ethically in the wrong. As common small talk with family, Emerson was talking of a planned takeover of Dakota Gasworks, Inc. to his uncle on a weekend fishing trip. Unfortunately, Emerson’s uncle took the inside information from his nephew and used it to his advantage to gain large profits. As chief financial officer for Reliant Electric Co., under the SEC Rule 10b-5 act, “which prohibits the commission of fraud in connection with the purchase or sale of a security,” (Miller, 2014, pg. 618) both Emerson and Wallace could potentially be liable for the actions.
