Part 1Streaming Video - 1974
Facing impeachment hearings due to his involvement in the 1972 Watergate scandal, President Richard Nixon resigned from office. In a speech delivered on August 8, 1974, he claimed that the United States needed "a full-time president and a full-time Congress" and that a trial would divert the federal government's attention from more important matters, but he did not admit to any criminal activity. It was the first time a U.S. president had ever resigned.
