In 1974, a case against President Richard Nixon was
brought to the Supreme Court. Nixon was charged for not keeping America's military, dimplomacy and national security
secrets. The Watergate scandal, occuring in the Watergate building in Washington D.C., caused all these charges.
In effect of these charges, Nixon resigned as President of the United States. He resigned before he could be impeached.
Even though he resigned, he still had criminal charges against him. President Geral Ford, who took over as President,
gave Nixon a pardon, which removed all charges. That ended the case. This case is one of the major landmark cases
in United States history.
