At first people believed that the break in focused around the Republican party and their wanting to be sure that Nixon would win reelection. The reporters discovered millions of dollars that had been funneled in illegal ways; ultimately, however, the entire intelligence community (CIA, etc.) was believed to be involved in a number of cover ups that were both illegal and against every law that this country should stand for.
