Watergate.org is a special project dedicated to educating the public about the complicated processes of holding to account the occupant of the highest political office in America. Both the lessons of Watergate from 50 years ago and the recent incident of a former President encouraging election misconduct and sanctioning the storming of the Capitol have potentially challenged the democratic processes by which America has been governed since its founding.
