Historical Information

Watergate was a major political scandal during the presidential administration of Richard M. Nixon. The scandal is named after the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C., where it was discovered that the Democratic National Committee's headquarters had been burglarized on June 17, 1972. It was eventually uncovered that President Nixon and his administration were heavily involved in the scandal, which led to his resignation as President of the United States in August 1974, being the only president to ever do so.
