Transcript of Richard Nixon

The Scandalous Life of Richard Nixon After his resignation, Nixon settled in San Clemente, California.

He composed memoirs and several pieces on international affairs.

Though disgraced by his presidential scandal, Nixon gained a sense of authority on foreign affairs due.

Richard M. Nixon died April 18, 1994. After getting married in 1940 and having two daughters,
Nixon served in World War II as a Navy lieutenant
commander. Nixon ran for president on the Republican ballot in November of 1968. His victory appeared to mark a new presidency, a new political era.

After close inspection of evidence, courtesy of two reporters at the Washington Post, the Watergate Scandal was traced back to the White House...and to President Nixon.

Despite Nixon's denial, he was put up for impeachment and his name was tarnished. August 8, 1974 marked the resignation day of President Richard Nixon.

After two years of speculation and investigation (and his continued presidential reign), the Republican who had helped to ring in a new era of politics was brought down by a monumental scandal. Information acquired at:
