The Watergate Scandal that surrounds Nixon's Presidency brought up a lot of untold secrets, leading to the distrust in the President. Nixon was hiding many things, secrets, which he was hiding on tapes. He wouldn't give them up, but the Supreme Court forced him to do so in this case. This lead to Richard Nixon being impeached for the obstruction of justice, abuse of power, and contempt of congress. Nixon resigned from his Presidency because of this.
