President Richard Nixon resigns amid certain impeachment on this episode of This Day In History.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand tell us about the resignation of the 37th President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon.
In 1974, Richard Nixon addressed the nation on radio and television with a prepared statement in which he announced his resignation as President “effective at noon, tomorrow.” Nixon admitted no wrongdoing in his statement and was pardoned by his predecessor, President Gerald Ford, just a month later for his role in the Watergate scandal.
Plus, Dustin Hoffman is born on this day in 1937, Iain Macmillan takes the cover photo for the Beatles’ Abbey Road album in 1969, and the Games of the XXIX Olympiad open in Beijing, China in 2008.
