As part of the proceedings of the infamous Watergate trial, on July 30, 1974, President Richard Nixon released confidential White House recordings to the U.S. Senate. The tapes were used to decide whether Nixon was telling the truth about key meetings that had occurred in the White House, possibly in relation to the Watergate instance. As a result, on August 9, 1974, Nixon dramatically resigned the office of presidency, as the Senate hearings had reached an almost unanimous conclusion of guilt regarding the Nixon administration.
