1974

  • August: With the exposer of the Watergate affair president Richard Nixon resigns from the office of President.
  • September: With fears of a horrific backlash from the American people, President Ford elects not to pardon his former boss.
  • December: Richard Nixon's trial before the Supreme Court is scheduled for March of 1975.

1975

  • March: The United States vs. Richard Nixon begins. Nixon is often remembered red during questioning for stating that, "When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal." The trial lasts for nearly a week and results in a 6-3 ruling that President Nixon did very much indeed commit a felony, and as President, he was in no way above the law. Nixon is sentenced to twenty years in a federal prison for warrantless wiretapping.

1976

  • Jimmy Carter wins the white house, though Gerald Ford manages to avoid as much critisism as he did in OTL.

1986

  • November: President Reagan is impeached for his involvement in the Iran Contra affair. Though he is found innocent, his approval ratings fall to the levels of Bill Clinton at the end of his presidency in OTL.

1989

  • George H.W. Bush narrowly wins the 1988 election.

1990

  • August: Due to the reaction to the Iran Contra Affair, and the Reagan Impeachment, the Gulf War receives far less support than OTL.

1991

  • By the end of the war, support of the Bush Administration is comparable to OTLs George W. Bush.

1992

  • President Bush loses his reelection in a landslide by Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton. Clinton's first act as President is the removal of US bases from major Islamic Holy Lands.

1998

  • December: President Clinton is removed for office for lying under oath during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Vice President Gore, who was noted for staying out of the scandal, was sworn in as the 43rd President on January 12th, 1999.

2000

  • Al Gore wins his re-election, but by a very slim margin.

2001

  • Due to the moderation of anti-American fervor in the Middle East thanks to the removal of US bases from the Middle East, Osama bin Laden is only able to gain marginal support for an attack on America. On September 11th, 2001, the terrorist organization Al Quaeda successfully bombs the World Trade Center in New York with a semi truck loaded with explosives. While the towers do not fall, the psychological effect on the US results in America distancing them self from the middle east.

2004

  • President Gore manages to erase all ties to the Clinton impeachment and manages to gain a second full term with a respectable margin.
