It was called the political scandal of the century, threatening the very roots of our constitutional democracy. Even today, the release of files and new revelations by the original players alter the facts and the landscape. Could Deep Throat have been an FBI agent? How much did the President know? Time has not diminished the thrill and mystery that surround these extraordinary historical events. Relive history in the words of the perpetrators themselves.

President Nixon declared war on his “enemies” and a secret police force took shape in the White House. When the president’s men were caught red-handed in the Democrat’s Watergate offices, exposure threatened. A massive cover-up, orchestrated by the President himself, seemed to succeed with Nixon’s landslide 1972 re-election.

The cover-up begins to crumble when John Dean, the designated fall-guy, turns stool pigeon. The existence of the Oval Office Tapes is revealed. Nixon tries to strong-arm the FBI into shutting down the Special Prosecutor’s office. And a tarnished vice-president is forced to resign.

Nixon’s next, hand-picked Special Prosecutor uncovers evidence so damning that the President’s staunchest supporters begin to defect. The House Judiciary Committee raises the specter of impeachment and slowly tightens the noose. A once-proud President Nixon resigns in disgrace.
