C. We'll never know, of course, because he resigned before he could be impeached, and then Gerald Ford issued a pardon for any crimes he might have committed, so he was never indicted and tried either. Folks lower down who worked for him were actually indicted and convicted of crimes, but the big question was whether Nixon knew about this, ordered it, failed to stop it, et cetera. Similar questions were asked about Reagan's responsibility for the Iran-Contra mess, and are being asked now about Obama's responsibility for criminal and damaging national security leaks, or for the botched "Fast and Furious" gun-running scheme that resulted in the death of a US Border Agent. It's a general conundrum with a huge organization like the Federal government. Obviously the President can't keep track of what 2 million Federal employees are doing, but on the other hand he's theoretically responsible for all they do. To what degree is he held accountable? And, political accountabilty is one thing -- the voters get to decide -- and criminal accountability quite another.
