UNITED STATES V NIXON 1974 Historical Context- President Richard M Nixon was being charged of trying to cover up the Watergate incident Watergate was and still is the headquarters for the Democratic Party Some of Nixons men broke into the complex and tried to wire tap the telephones However the bread in went bad So they went in the second time but this time they were caught by a security guard They were taken to prison The reason why the men wanted to wire tap the phone was so that they can try and find some dirt about the Democratic candidate running against Nixon for the Presidency When the men were taken down to jail they were being asked why were they wire tapping the phones they did not talk Because Nixon was paying them to keep quiet But they eventually they started talking They told everyone that President Nixon was involved with the crime Even though Nixon was not in charge of sending these men to the Watergate Complex his Chief of Staff was This gave the idea that he was some how tied in to the crime The wire-tapping was not a very large crime all Nixon had to say was that he did not do it He wouldnt have been lying However Nixon did not say this Instead of confessing it to the public he decided that he could try and cover it up This is what got him in trouble and would eventually lead to being the first President in United States History to resign out of the Presidency He was lucky though because he was pardoned by vice-president Gerald Ford He tried to cover this crime up by paying the people in jail to stay quiet and by having the FBI get rid of all of the evidence that was found in the scene of the crime He also tried to with hold evidence from congress
