Today in 1972: Five men are arrested for breaking into the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C.
They had been hired by President Nixon’s Committee to Re-Elect the President to install bugging devices and copy documents. The abuse of power and obstruction of justice involved in the cover-up of this crime eventually led to the resignation of the President, at the time on the verge of impeachment by the House or Representatives.
