The Watergate scandal

Back in May 1972, five men broke into the Democratic National Committee headquarters that was located in the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C. They were there to bug office phones and steal some of the most confidential documents.

A month later, the spies were successfully arrested, as they came in a second time. However, authorities discovered after a while that these men were actually sent by President Richard Nixon’s reelection campaign.

Even if the population had suspicions, Nixon managed to get re-elected to serve his second term, after denying being involved in the scandal. However, it wasn’t enough, as The Washington Post managed to expose the president’s cover-up of the Watergate crimes, as an anonymous whistleblower from the FBI told everything.

  2. EXCELLENT ARTICLE. I HAVE HEARD OF MANY OF THESE DURING MY LIFE AS FAR BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER. THE WORST ONES ARE THE POLITICAL LIES THAT PROBABLY INFLICT MORE DAMAGE AND SUFFERING TO ALL MANKIND THAT ALL THE OTHER CATEGORIES COMBINED. MY FATHER TOLD ME OVER SIXTY FIVE YEARS AGO THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU LIKE ANY GIVEN POLITICAL FIGURE, YOU CAN NEVER TRUST ANYTHING THAT COMES OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS. HE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN AS HE WAS DEEPLY INVOLVED IN LOCAL POLITICS AT THE LOCAL AND STATE LEVEL AND WAS PRETTY MUCH DISGUSTED WITH THE SYSTEM IN HIS LATER YEARS.

  3. HItler was right! Jews were and still are the enemy of society and now globally. They own every centural bank in the world, news stations, Hollywood, TV shows and all to control and manipulate the world.

  4. I am having trouble understanding how the 1919 Black Sox scandal qualifies as a “lie,” or the Cuban missile crisis.
    That’s two of the first three: time to quit.
