The Watergate scandal is the most famous political scandal in the history of the United States.

And that's saying a lot, because we've had some doozies!

President Richard Nixon resigned the highest office in the land on August 9, 1974

One month later, President Gerald Ford issued the (former) President a full and unconditional pardon.

Then....silence.

Until 1977.  That's when the nation (and the world) was riveted to their television's.

The Frost/Nixon interview(s).
