The Watergate scandal was a major federal political scandal in the United States involving the administration of President Richard Nixon from 1972 to 1974. The scandal stemmed from the June 17, 1972 break-in of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters at the Watergate Office Building in Washington, D.C., by five men and the Nixon Administration's subsequent attempts to cover up its involvement in the crime. Soon after the men were arrested, the press and the U.S. Justice Department discovered a connection between cash found on them at the time and a slush fund used by the Nixon re-election campaign committee.
