The Watergate scandals were a series of scandals involving former and late U.S President Richard M. Nixon, in which members of his administration of the executive branch organized illegal political espionage during Nixon's 1972 reelection organization.against their perceived opponents and were charged with violation of the public trust, bribery, contempt of Congress, and attempted obstruction of justice.

The name comes from the Watergate apartment and hotel complex in Washington, D.C., which in 1972 was the location of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). On June 17, 1972, several burglars were caught breaking in to DNC headquarters. The break-in and the subsequent cover-up by Nixon and his aides culminated two years later in the president's resignation.
