U.S. President Richard Nixon talks about faith in his Vice President Spiro Agnew through the Watergate scandal during a press conference in San Clemente, California. A journalist asks the President about his confidence in his Vice President. The President responds that his confidence in the capabilities of the Vice President have been further strengthened because of his conduct during the Watergate controversy, but the President dislikes that the charges that were made against the Vice President were leaked to the press by the members of Grand Jury, Department of Justice or by the prosecutor. He also mentions that the responsible individuals from the Justice Department or the prosecutor's office will be dismissed from the government services if they are found to be guilty. Another journalist ask the President whether his governing capabilities have decreased because of the issue and has he thought of resigning. The President agrees that his capabilities to govern have decreased to a certain extent as he has been featured in the headlines for a long time, which in turn has weakened the citizens' faith in him. He states that he is not going to resign from the President's position. He also comments that one should move out from the guilt of the Watergate issue and move forward for the betterment of the people of United Sates.
