Comparison of action against the Watergate scandal

This happened during the tenure of Richard Nixon, who was the US President from 1972 to 1974, and it led to his resignation.
What is America's famous Watergate scandal?
Republican candidate Richard Nixon was elected President of the United States in the 1969 American election. Everything went well for the first two-and-a-half years of his term, but in the last year, he again started preparing for the presidential election. He used the power of the government to gauge the electoral preparations of his rival, the Democratic Party. Under this, he started spying on the office of the Democratic Party's National Committee located at the Watergate Complex. Detectives installed call recording equipment in the office of the opposition party Nixon, but after a few days these devices broke down. After this, on the night of June 17, 1972, five spies again tried to enter that office, so that this equipment could be fixed. While he was connecting the wires of these devices, only then the police reach there and arrested him? The next day the news of the arrest was published in the American newspaper 'Washington Post and the whole matter was busted. This espionage controversy caught on so much that Nixon had to step down.
