The Watergate scandal was a noteworthy political scandal that happened in the United States amid the mid 1970s, after a break-in by five men at the Democratic National Committee central command at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C. on June 17, 1972, and President Richard Nixon's organization's consequent endeavor to conceal its contribution. After the five robbers were apprehended and the connivance was found, Watergate was explored by the United States Congress. In the mean time, Nixon's organization opposed its tests, which prompted a constitutional crisis.

The term Watergate, by metonymy, has come to envelop a variety of covert and regularly unlawful exercises embraced by individuals from the Nixon organization. Those exercises included such "grimy traps" as irritating the workplaces of political adversaries and individuals of whom Nixon or his officials were suspicious.
