Richard Milhous Nixon was the 38th president of the United States of America from 1969 to 1973.
On June 1969, when the Soviet Union managed to land the first man on the Moon, not wanting to become the president who lost the Space Race, he ordered CIA to look again at all intelligence reports to see if they had missed anything.
During the 1972 presidential election, he was defeated by Democrat Ted Kennedy. His involvement in the Watergate scandal during his presidency led to criminal proceedings against him, though he rejected Kennedy's offer of a pardon in 1974.
Behind the scenes
In the real world, Nixon won a second term in a landslide against George McGovern in 1972. He was also never criminally charged for Watergate, due to the pardon of President Gerald Ford.
