When Richard Nixon took office in 1969, he sought nothing less than to remake American foreign policy. He sought to forge a new balance of power and earn a place among history’s greatest peacemakers. He would go on to monumental achievements, opening relations with China and signing treaties with the Soviet Union, but he would also suffer one of the greatest downfalls in modern history. In this episode, we cover his greatest triumphs and tragic end in the Watergate scandal.
