Which U.S. President once said, "I am not a crook"?

Did You Know? Richard M. Nixon was the only U.S. President to resign from office. Before his tumultuous departure in 1974 amidst the Watergate scandal, Nixon had an extensive political career, serving as Vice President under Dwight D. Eisenhower from 1953 to 1961.

Interestingly, he also achieved significant foreign policy successes, such as initiating détente and the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with the Soviet Union, and notably opened diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China with his historic 1972 visit.

Despite his controversial end, Nixon’s legacy includes the establishment of the Environmental Protection Agency and the end of the Vietnam War, illustrating a complex mix of both achievement and adversity.

His life post-presidency was dedicated to rehabilitating his public image, becoming an elder statesman who advised subsequent presidents, a journey from political height to fall and a gradual, if partial, redemption.

    Mr. Nixon did nothing compared to the thieves currently in office.
    He should be given an apology and his reputation wiped clean.
