How Did U.S and Law Change?
The Supreme Court said that under the Constitution, the judiciary had the final voice, not the Executive branch. As for "executive privilege," the Court acknowledged that the President had a right to privileged communication where certain areas of national security were concerned. However, the Court stated that this case did not meet those conditions. Nixon handed over the tapes that revealed that he had personally engaged in the cover-up of the burglary. Congress began impeachment proceedings against the President for his actions. Rather than face the impeachment hearings, Nixon resigned from office.
