Nixon's Resignation 1974 By: gabe epps
Nixon was considered by many as a great president, but he had one major stumble. Watergate ruined his reputation, although it might not have been completely his fault.
"And it was decided, without it seems the knowledge of president Nixon, that a secret organization be set up that would fix those leaks, and it would be called The Plumbers." - Ari Hoptman
"Unbeknownst to the public, the burglars were actually sent by Nixon's administration to repair some wire taped devices that they had planted in an earlier break in." - Matthew Santoro
Could Nixon have been involved in the Watergate from the beginning? Or near the end?
"On March 23, John Dean approached the president, and told him that the burglars might need a lot of money to keep them quiet. Nixon asked, 'How much do you think they'll need?' John Dean just pulled a figure out of the air, and said, 'Perhaps, $1,000,000."
