Water Gate Scandal 

Watergate was a major political scandal that occurred in the United States in the 1970's, following a break in the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the watergate office complex in Washington, D.C. and President Richard Nixon's administrations attempted to cover up its involvement.

The origins of the watergate break in lay in the hostile politics of the 1960's. By 1972, when Republican President Nixon was running for reelection, the United States was embroiled in the Vietnam War and deeply divided internally. Members of Nixon's Committee to Reelect the president as CREEP broke into the Democratic National Committee's Watergate headquarters.

Creep was the name of the group of people who broke into the National Democratic Office to steal documents and tap the phones 

Nixon was afraid that the people wouldn't vote for him if they found out about the scandal and he would lose all his power

Nixon had forgot about the security precautions in the oval office which his secretary went and erased 18 minutes of them
