the Watergate complex houses many business offices. It was here that the office of the Democratic National Committee was burgled on June 17th, 1972.
The burglary and subsequent cover-up eventually led to moves to impeach President Richard Nixon. Nixon resigned the presidency on 8 August 1974.
"Watergate" is now an all-encompassing term used to refer to:
  • political burglary
  • bribery
  • extortion
  • phonetapping
  • conspiracy
  • obstruction of justice
  • destruction of evidence
  • tax fraud
  • illegal use of government agencies such as the CIA and the FBI
  • illegal campaign contributions
  • use of public money for private purposes.
Most of all, "Watergate" is synonymous with abuse of power.
